A Complete A to Z Guide to the season’s essential people, products and trends.
A - APPLE An apple a day doesn’t only keep the doctor away—it also keeps the beauty blahs at bay. The fruit, richin antioxidants, vitamins and polyphenols, is ideal for protecting the skin and scalp from environmental aggressors and free radicals, while the oil from its seeds contains a multitude of essential fatty acids that are highly moisturizing. Then of course there’s the apple’s distinctive and appealing crisp scent—perfect for warm weather. No wonder it’s one of spring’s star ingredients, be it in a scent, as from Celine Dion and DKNY, to the newest skin brightener from Fresh.
Celine Dion Sensational, $32, J.C.Penney, Kohl’s; J.F. Lazartigue Essential Orange Oil Shampoo, $45, jflazartigue.com; Salon Selectives Type Hc Hold & Control Hair Spray, $3.50, mass retailers; DKNY Be Delicious Charmingly Delicious, $55, Sephora; Fresh Appleseed Brightening Essence, $95, Barneys, Saks.
B - BIG HAIR While mere mortals may not wish to rise to the heights seen on the runway, volume and texture have replaced straight and sleek in spring’s style lexicon. Big hair is just a spritz away with Nexxus’ 360 Volume Bodifying Finishing Mist, which features a continuous spray from any angle (even upside down), while Bumble and bumble’s Spray de Mode contains a unique combination of polymers for strength and flexibility. Frédéric Fekkai’s All-Day Hair Plump utilizes hyaluronate humectants to plump the hair cuticle, while Oscar Blandi’s Lacca Hairspray for Volume & Hold delivers just that, thanks to panthenol, which thickens, and sugar, for extra hold.
Oscar Blandi Lacca, $24, Sephora; Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode, $25, select salons; Nexxus Salon Hair Care 360 Volume, $9.99, mass retailers; Frédéric Fekkai All-Day Hair Plump, $95, Neiman Marcus.
C - CREAM EYE SHADOW Cream eye shadows are de rigueur for spring, replacing fall’s must-have powders with a lighter burst of texture and color. “Cream shadows are easy to use and give a fresh display of color,” says Yves Saint Laurent Beauté’s artistic advisor Val Garland. “The light texture is perfect for spring.” Unlike prior incarnations, the new crop of cream formulas is long-wearing. Most contain special silicones and gel emollients that keep the color on your lids and won’t crease or smudge, even in warm weather. Says Garland, “It’s a fresh look and feel—just what you’d expect for the season.”

25-year-old @samweaving is about to break out this fall, starring in Netflix’s horror film “The Babysitter,” fittingly out today on Friday the 13th.

After designing the new @louisvuitton and @bulgariofficial flagships and a @chanelofficial boutique opening in Japan, @petermarinoarchitect has another project on his plate: The Lobster Club.

Bronze hues, bespoke material detailing, blush and chartreuse tones and a heavy emphasis on Picasso can be seen throughout. Mark your calendars for Nov. 1 for the much-anticipated opening.
