Spring Must Haves - Five Beauty Products to Refresh your Routine!

Ahh spring is here...barely. It is still cold and snowing in Michigan  :(

That doesn't mean I can't pretend that it is warmer out by refreshing my beauty routine! I always love changing things up seasonally to get me in the mood of the upcoming weather change. 

Spring makeup favorites


Below are five products that will refresh your routine for spring:

1. Bold, bright lips

Clinique Poppy Pop

I love changing up my lip color as the seasons change. Usually by the time Spring is officially here, I am itching the wear my bright pinks, reds and oranges out. I used to be so scared to wear bold colors for everyday wear but over the years I've gotten the confidence to do so. A bright, poppy color is a great way to add color to your face. This one with its red-coral tones is my favoriteShade: poppy pop.

2. Light coverage base

Spring means warmer weather. Warmer weather demands coverage that isn't going to turn into an oil slick or feel heavy on the skin. I always tend to use my BB, CC creams or tinted moisturizer more during the warmer months. I hate the feeling of makeup when it is sunny and hot out. This is my holy grail CC cream that I use year round.

3. shimmery eyes

This is another area that I tend to dress down on. The smokey eyes of winter go away and I usually stick to a minimalistic product like a eyeshadow stick or liquid eyeshadow over my eyelids. Shimmery bases make for a dewier and healthier looking skin. I opt out to wear the shimmery champagnes and bronzes during the warmer months. These ones are a recent find and I am obsessedShade: kitten.

4. Dewy highlight

Highlighting is a must all around the year but when you have a sun-kissed glow going on, it is easier to pull your look together with a booming highlight. I still don't like a heavy highlight on myself but love seeing the looks of bronzed models with glistening skin. To come close, I just use a highlighting stick like this oneShade: champagne.

5. Poppy cheeks

Last, but not least are your cheeks. I say that a good blush will make you look health no matter what. I love the ginger-coral shades for the spring time. It gives a tropical vibe to my look. I love this one to wake my skin up and give me a tiny bit of a glowShade: ginger pop.
