Spring is here and it’s time to revamp our beauty routines. Out with the old and in with the new! When the seasons change from frozen to hot hot heat, we have to rethink and transition from heavier and darker products to lighter and glowier ones… And achieve Springtime goddess without breaking the bank! So, here are the perfect 10 products (more like not-so-secret weapons) we’ll be updating to make our Spring looks a serious cakewalk.
Keep Those Locks In Check
SU/Milk by Davines is the ideal product to protect your hair from damaging UVA/UVB rays to keeping it conditioned so your natural texture is smooth and frizz-free. It’ll definitely keep your locks in check during the Spring, all the way through Summer!
Pro tip: Wear your hair’s natural texture as much as you can and avoid heat styling. As the temps rise, your locks are more prone to sun and heat damage.
Ready, Set, Glow Head to Toe
Spending more time in the sun means you need to spend more time keeping your skin moisturized. The Korres Pomegranate Moisturising & Balancing Cream-Gel is ideal to hydrate your skin and smells like a d-r-e-a-m.
Get The Tint
Are you looking for the perfect glow before you get a chance to hit the beach? Try the St. Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan, because it means you get a natural-looking tan and you can use it in the shower (#timesaver)!
Pro tip: You should be wearing sunscreen year round, but even more so since you’ll likely be spending time in the sun! Try a moisturizer or BB Cream with SPF properties for that 2-in-1, bam!
Undress Your Eyes
Go for a lighter brow look (extremely bold, fully-filled in brows are out!) and use a tinted gel instead of your everyday pencil, powder or pomade. Try the L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper for a serious steal. Hey, if you’re paying more than $8 for brow gel, you’re living life wrong.
Instead of layering a primer, shadow, liner and mascara, try the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon – it’s a mouthful to say, but so easy to wear. The liner glides on so smooth, has a serious staying power and comes in killer colors!
Pro tip: Don’t be afraid to let your products multi-task. Use a bit of bronzer on your eyelids in place of eyeshadow. It’s simple, looks natural, and saves TONS of time!
Give ‘Em As Much Lip As You Want
Instead of layering on lip color, it’s time to get back to the basics. Sun exposure and the change in season can lead to dry, chapped lips. Try the Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm by Reve de Miel. It’s lightweight, hydrating, and not ultra shiny so you won’t look like you flashed back to the MAC lipglass phase. Plus, it can be purchased at Target – Hello, savings!
Just letting you know now: Your life is about to change. The Oops My Lip Tint Pack comes with SIX different tint colors and will last from the office to the beach.
Pro tip: Heavy lipsticks can literally melt on your face when the temps are sky high. Try a lip tint or stain for easier application and more staying power.
Slay Spring Style
As your makeup and skin care routine gets lighter and brighter for Spring, it’s time to focus on lightweight, breathable fabrics to ward off the heat. Try a bralette or racerback-style look with a sheer top or plunging neckline for an easy (and breezy) fashion statement.
Pro tip: Don’t be afraid to take your new swimwear to brunch or the next big festival. Try a one-piece swimsuit with mesh or tie-up detail and layer it under a pair of jean shorts or pants.
We love a nice neutral shade to match our new Spring looks, but it is time to ditch the dark reds and navy and freshen up our nail color! Zoya nail lacquer has a huge range of colors that apply super smooth, and last longer than most pricey nail brands.
Pro tip: Nail it every time with something light colored. Trade in your nudes and pastel pinks for a seafoam color, or a neutral color with a metallic sheen (mostly to distract yourself when your nails pick up the light from all of the sunny days to come).
