These pictures make me smile because it cracks me up how Sadie is the real star in these photos! I feel like shes like my little daughter that just can’t wait to wear makeup like her mamma one day. She obviously doesn’t know that there is a camera on her but she is always curious on what I’m doing especially when it comes to my beauty products. Such a curious little cutie!
I am in a spring mindset right now even though it’s still very much winter outside. I talked about 3 of the best pieces of early spring clothing to invest in to wear now on the blog earlier this week. Expect to see different versions of this on the blog over the next 2 months.
Today I’m talking all about the best beauty products you can wear now to embrace spring. I love that no matter what the weather is you can always have fun with your makeup for the next season ahead. As always I love to keep my look simple and natural which is exactly what these products offer. Fresh touches of soft pinks on the cheeks, eyes, and lips is just want you need for a pretty spring beauty look.
Here are all the products I’m using this spring to create a natural pink-y glow.
Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer – I swear this is what makes my complexion look its absolute best. You apply it over your moisturizer but before applying your foundation. It creates a nice base so that your foundation doesn’t sink into your skin and looks overall SO much better. I like the hydrating formula since my skin is dry but it also comes in oil-free, radiance, an SPF formula.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Porcelian – I’ve been using this tinted moisturizer for the past 2 years. I love it because of the light and even coverage it gives. It isn’t full coverage so it won’t cover up all your little flaws but that’s what I like about this – just a little coverage that shows my natural skin.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla – This is my ride or die concealer that I will never stray away from. It does a great job of covering up under eye darkness without creasing. I also love using this to conceal over spots on my face whether it’s acne or redness. This product has major super powers. I’ve probably replenished this product 10+ times.
Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials in Bare – Another great product I can’t live without. I don’t use eyeshadows all the time but this I do use. It acts as a skin colored eye-shadow that you apply all over your top lid so it conceals any darkness and makes you eyes look more awake. It’s just makes your overall look more natural. If you do choose to apply eye-shadow it is a nice base to build upon.
Benefit Box O Powder Blush in Dandelion – I had been wanting to try this blush for awhile and I’m so glad I finaly got it because I’m obsessed with this for spring! I often have trouble with blush because my skin is so fair I love the natural pink flushed look of this blush. The brush applicator it comes with makes it so easy to apply on the apples of you cheeks. Definitely recommend this to fairer skin tones!
Tartlette in Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette – I am seriously obsessed with this palette! I bought it because it has a nice mix of brown, grey, and pink tones. It also has both shimmers and mattes that is nice to play with depending on your mood. I’ve been using the mattes lately but loved using the shimmers during the holidays. There are so many color combinations you can use and it has been my go-to ever since I bought it. For this look I used sweetheart on my lower lid, rebel on my outer crease, leader as an eyeliner, and charmer to mix.
Lune+Aster Stratosphere Mascara – If you’re looking for a mascara that gives you natural feathery lashes then this is the right one for you. I use this every day for daytime use. It is perfect for work or on days you want to look put together but more natural. It also doesn’t clump which is a huge bonus for me.
Becca Ultimate Lipstick Love in Petal – I picked this up because I was looking for a super natural nude/pink lipstick that has a moisturizing formula. I really like this one! I usually pick up lipsticks and hardly wear them but I can see myself wearing this all spring because the color and formula is perfect.
