Ok kiddos, spring has officially sprung and it’s time to face the facts – your boring winter beauty routine is looking tired. So let’s spruce it up a little bit and get a handle on your hotness for the season. If you don’t want to go for a drastic change with something like cutting your hair off like I did, adding a bit of color in the right place will give you that little extra something to stay on top of your game when it comes to spring makeup. Without much ado, here are a few of my favorite spring beauty ideas that will add a little pep in your step.
Transition that gloomy day with a little grey-on your face. One my favorite spring beauty trends of the season is the addition of grey into your wardrobe or into your beauty routine. I think the beauty gurus have suddenly remembered that using a matte grey eye shadow can complement any eye color and be effortlessly chic with any ensemble. Duh—I would’ve loved to have been around for that light bulb moment. Layer Le Metier De Beaute’s True Colour Eye Shaodow in Platinum over your favorite neutral base shadow to get a look that’s glamorous and just a little glistening. I’m also obsessing over Deborah lippmann’s Moon Rendezvous at the moment. It’s a slate grey-blue that’s put me and my nails totally over the moon.
Pastels will always be ever so prevalent in the fashion world for spring. I don’t know about you, but personally, wearing Easter egg colors just for the hell of it isn’t really my thing. My favorite interpretation of the pastel trend is to have a little fun with your eyeliner instead. Luckily, my absolute #1 favorite eyeliner by Stila comes in a few exciting colors for spring so we can create a new look while easily transforming your eyes into show stoppers. No joke and all with a quick swipe. Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Periwinkle, Snow & Turquoise are instant game changers for the season. Get them now or forever hold your peace.
I’ll be honest; summer makes me antsy because SPF pretty much replaces my makeup. So I haven’t felt the need to turn up my eye makeup every day. HOWEVER that doesn’t mean that I have to scare everyone going bare face just yet. My ‘deep fried butter’ of the season is this pairing: Becca’s Beach Tint in Lychee & IT Cosmetic’s Hello Light Crème Illuminizer. It’s my wham-bam, makeup done ma’am duo that’s super easy to apply on the go and can be used almost anywhere. The Crème illuminizer is a life saver! It can actually be used all over my face (trust me honey – it gets used all over) to enhance features and help with any complexion imperfections.
Super easy right? Most importantly, have fun, try new things and never stop smiling. There’s nothing more attractive than a woman with a positive attitude and a glowing smile.
