With a new season under our belts, I get pretty excited to start wearing spring dresses, skirts, etc but since the DC weather changes it’s mind everyday I begrudgingly find myself in winter clothes come March and April. I know I can always rely on makeup to freshen up my look when I am not able to wear pretty spring clothes.
I love to change up the skin care and makeup products I use each season. I have been loving these five –
#1 Tinted Moisturizer: First of all, I love natural looking and lightweight coverage. I highly recommend NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (currently I wear Finland) but have recently discovered and love Georgio Armani’s Luminescence CC Cream in #2 for it’s sheer, natural, and luminous coverage. It works great with my skin color.
#2 Concealer (that doubles up as a highlighter): I have been loving Trish McEvoy’s Flawless Concealer in #2. I swear by it’s ability to cover darkness while highlighting my bone structure. Another product I love is YSL’s Touche Eclat which also conceals and highlights.
#3 Beige/Pink Eye Shadow Palette: Aren’t eye palettes the best? They are perfect for going from day to night and also travel so easily. I mostly stick with neutrals on my day to day but wanted to add a hint of light pink this time of year. This eye palette from Bobbi Brown is perfect for spring and I love the shimmery shades for long summer nights at the beach.
#4 Pink Blush: Since I didn’t have a spring break this year, my skin is ultra pale. I still wear a hint of bronzer to add dimension to by face but really rely on a pretty pink blush to get healthy color on my face. This rose color from Chanel is prefect for my fair skin.
#5 Light Pink Lipstick: I talked about all my favorite pink lipsticks for spring here but I have been particularly partial to the Creme Smooth Lipstick in Rose by Laura Mercier lately. I love it because it is a hydrating formula so my lips don’t feel dry after an hour or two of having it on. The shade is a perfect pink for my coloring right now. When I start to get more color in the summer this will look too washed out but for now it is perfect!
