Clove + Hallow Sarah Biggers

Makeup artist, beauty blogger and West Midtown resident Sarah Biggers created her new makeup brand, Clove + Hallow, to offer “products with great performance and a broad range of hues, made from minimal and simple ingredients that are good for body and skin,” she says. Not only are the products affordable and vegan, but they boast a modern look—both in the packaging and on gorgeous faces around ATL and beyond. Here, Biggers shares five major beauty trends for spring and her best tips for making them your own. @cloveandhallow

1. The Trend: Getting Real
Consumers want beauty products that truly are good enough to eat—especially lipstick, which winds up in your mouth and therefore your body. Biggers’ tip: “Try Clove + Hallow’s vegan Lip Glaze in Angelic ($13) for a perfectly kissable nude-pink shade.”

2. The Trend: Multipurpose Color
Less is more when you use one color to create maximum impact. Biggers’ tip: “Swipe on bold lipstick and a light coat of mascara for a look that’s fresh and effortlessly chic. Dab the same shade on your cheeks and blend with warm fingertips for a healthy flush in a pinch.”

3. The Trend: Healthy Fats
Clove + Hallow is helping move beauty culture toward the power of healthy fats. The products are ripe with antioxidants, fatty acids and omegas—fats that are plumping, hydrating and soothing. Biggers’ tip: “For a dose of skin-loving fats, try a night serum with botanical oils.”

4. The Trend: Do the Dew
The trick with this trend is to use cream or liquid highlighters to achieve a lit-from-within look. Biggers’ tip: “Apply by pressing a small amount of product with warm fingertips into your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, bridge of nose and collarbone.”

5. The Trend: Metallic Lips
Yes, you can work this as-seen-on-the-runways look without resembling an alien! Biggers’ tip: “To achieve this style, apply your lipstick as usual, and finish it by patting a metallic eye shadow on top. For the appearance of fuller lips, concentrate a slightly lighter shade of shimmer in the center of the lips and lightly blend toward the outer edges.”
