We have been seeing florals patterns and prints consecutively for quite a few seasons now, and the forecast states that they are not going anywhere. Transitioning from spring, to summer, then even into winter, the beloved floral trend continues.
Now crossing over into the world of beauty, florals are inspiring beauty gurus everywhere, including Katarina Van Derham. Today is the launch of her limited edition “Glamour Garden” lipstick collection in collaboration with global cosmetic brand LA Splash Cosmetics! This 4 color liquid lipstick collection consists of long lasting original colors inspired by her glamorous life and her love for cruelty-free beauty. You will find these buttercream scented shades inside a gorgeous floral print treasure keepsake box complete with a mirror, and a personal inspirational quote designed by Katarina herself.
Katarina has been in the beauty industry for many years, playing roles both in front of, and behind the camera. As a model, she grace the cover of over 60 magazines worldwide, and has appeared in over 600 major media outlets. As a well respected beauty specialist, she has glammed up many celebrities, and has been invited to judge many pageants and beauty contests around the world.
Being a vegan for 20 years, Katarina feels very passionate about changing the ways of the beauty industry and promoting a cruelty-free world. Navigating around what products are cruelty-free and not can be a challenge for anyone who is passionate about this cause. So, Kat started her line of 100% human hair eyelashes called, “KAT lash” and she was excited to break the trend of Mink eyelashes. She believes that no woman is truly beautiful unless she has a heart.

Regardless the cold temperatures outside we can’t resist to share the hottest spring/summer hair trends. Since is all about the ’80s this year, get ready for insane volume. No worries, you won’t witness a comeback of the craziest hairstyles, but the biggest inspiration behind 2018’s trendiest hairstyles comes from that decade. Teasing your hair is something you’ll most certainly do in 2018, but not to the degree where your hair is ridicously messy. In 2018 we are about to learn how to get polished looks with the ’80s on mind. We asked pros from the chicest French hair salons Maximilien Coiffure to give us an idea on how to pull off Va Va volume in a refined way. So, here is a close look at their chic hair ideas for spring/summer 2018.
Don’t wait for the wind to play up your hair, do it yourself! Forget about definition and perfection and embrace texture instead. Make sure you don’t overly tease your hair and end up with a hot mess instead of hot hairstyle.
You could easily take the hairstyle from above in another fun direction by further defining the curls and adding a giant braid around your head. This is the hairstyle you’d want to take from Coachella to a summer wedding. The braided headband is all about bohemian romance spiced up with frizzy voluminous curls.
The side swept hairstyles are red carpet staples. The Old Hollywood waves with side parting have been around forever, so Maximilien Coiffure decided to reinvent this hairstyle. The big sexy untamed curls allow you to freely run your fingers through your hair and add more volume whenever you feel like you need a boost.
The banana bun popularized by the infamous Grace Kelly is alive and well in 2018. Maximilien Coiffure suggests a relaxed version of it for the hot summer days.
If you need a touch of formality in your hairstyle you can always rely on the low bun. Getting your hair on point in the morning has some serious advantages. There is no need to turn down an invitation for a cocktail after work when you have your hair styled in such a chic and polished way.
In summer 2018 side braids aren’t exclusive to school girls. Depending on the thickness of your hair and the occasion you can wear it relaxed and voluminous or a bit tighter. For sipping cocktails at the beach, a voluminous messy braid will complete your beach style with an Instagram-worthy touch. For all your busy days at work, the tight side braid is here to brighten up your formal attire.
This reinvented side pony is all about business. To preserve the minimalistic and sophisticated aesthetic of this hairstyle stay away from hair accessories. Just a thin strand of hair around the hair tie is enough to finish off this look with style.

It seems that the Christmas holidays were just a few days ago. We’re still not over the glitter euphoria, but it’s officially time to get ready for another fun holiday. Being only weeks away, Valentine’s Day is an excuse for all of us to get dressed up and look our best. Put on an elegant dress or a pair of jeans, but pay attention to your nails as well. Romantic Valentine’s Day nail art is already trending on every social media platform. You must’ve seen an array of cute designs so far, overwhelming your Instagram feed.
So no matter what way you’re going to celebrate this day, make sure to get a statement manicure. Some will have a romantic night out with bae, while others plan a cocktail party with friends. Either way, you’ve got a chance to pull off a mani that matches the holiday. Hearts are the top pattern you will see everywhere during February. So why not put them on your nails? For a minimalist look, just add a tiny heart on several of your nails. But if you are a lady who loves full-blown nail art, give yourself the courtesy to rock hearts in all sizes and hues.
But this doesn’t mean that cute hearts are a must when you do Valentine’s nails. To keep things simple, just avoid any patterns and choose a soft, gentle color that celebrates the most romantic day of the year.
Red is always the color to turn to in February. Even a simple red manicure will do the job. But since this is the ideal time to include cute patterns in your nail art, make sure to get the most out of this holiday. For those who are not huge fans of the signature Valentine’s color, here comes pink to save the day. Even glitter is welcome on days like this. Whatever hue you opt for, make sure is not boring. The sole purpose of holidays like this is to give you the chance to try things that you normally wouldn’t in your everyday life.
We rounded up the cutest Valentine’s day nail art you can flaunt for the upcoming month of love. Even if you don’t have a romantic date planned, a fierce manicure will have everyone’s eyes on you. Fun shades of pink and red are the unwritten rule to follow when glamming up your nails for the most romantic time of the year.
