Today I’m super excited to be partnering up with Physicians Formula, one of my all time favorite drugstore makeup brands, to share my 6 Tips to Refresh Your Makeup Looks for Spring. I’ve been using Physicians Formula since I was in middle school and the quality can’t be beat. From gorgeous blushes and bronzers to beautiful eye products and more, they have something for every beauty lover out there!

You can find Physician Formula products in-stores or shop online over here at Ulta.com!
6 Tips to Refresh Your Spring Makeup Looks
Use a Lightweight Foundation with SPF
My first tip to refresh your spring makeup looks is to put away the heavy foundations. Spring is the perfect time to trade in your heavy foundations for a light-weight foundation that lets your skin breathe. With warm sunny days ahead, your skin will also need extra protection from the sun, so it’s best to invest in a product that doubles as a foundation and sunscreen.
The Healthy Foundation from Physicians Formula has quickly became my new favorite foundation as it offers medium coverage with a beautiful satin finish, and contains SPF 20 to help protect my skin. I’m also a huge fan of the brightening complex in this foundation, which works to brighten, hydrate, and even out skin tone. I don’t know about you all, but I love when I can find double duty products like this one.
Prime The Skin
My next tip for refreshing your makeup look for spring is to make sure you’re adding a primer or daily serum to your beauty routine. The dry winter months can unfortunately make your skin look a little dull, but getting that fresh looking spring skin is easier than you think with the use of a good makeup primer. Before applying foundation, apply an oil-free serum or illuminating primer to enhance and brighten the skin’s natural beauty.
I’m personally loving the Physicians Formula Rose`All Day Oil-Free Serum, which gives your skin a pearluminous finish. It is also enhanced with rose water to calm and hydrate the skin and powerful antioxidants that help with brightening. Not to mention the packaging is absolutely beautiful!
See how it adds a gorgeous luminous look to the skin? I’m obsessed with this serum!
Another great product I’ve been reaching for on days where I want an even more glowing look, is the Physicians Formula New Spotlight Illuminating Primer.
Hands down, I think it is one of the most beautiful primers I’ve used on my skin and it does such a great job of adding a glowing undertone to the skin. Similar to many of their other products, I’ll also add that this primer smells really good!
Brighten up the Cheeks
After applying foundation, next sweep on a beautiful pink or peach blush on the apples of the cheeks. To really brighten up the cheeks, apply a gorgeous highlighting powder that will make your skin look radiant.
I personally love the Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter in Pink/Rose and love applying it on the top of my cheekbones, brow bone, and tip of my nose for a softened glow. The cream to powder format glides effortlessly on the skin and the pigmentation is really nice. Just check out the gorgeous swatches below!
Get Glowing Skin
Speaking of gorgeous skin, spring is the perfect time to break out the bronzers and warm up the face a little. I like using this bronzer to contour my cheekbones, temples, and sides of my nose to add a beautiful, sun kissed look. Depending on what I’m wearing, I also like applying it to my décolletage and the tops of my shoulders.
Of course my absolute go-to product is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer! Not only does it add a beautiful bronze finish to the skin, but it smells like coconut heaven! I’m serious, if you’ve never tried this product you’re gonna want to rush on over to Ulta right now and buy it. It’s THAT good!
Play up the Lashes + Eyes
With so much emphasis on the skin and lips, you want to make sure your eyes stand out in a flirty yet subtle way. In lieu of a traditional smokey eye, use pretty pastel eyeshadows, colorful eyeliners, or a traditional winged liner to add fun elements to your eye look, without going overboard. Peach tones, light browns, and nude shimmer shades can enhance almost any makeup look in the spring months.
Complete the eye look by applying 1-2 coats of mascara to give your lashes a defined, flirty look! The Physicians Formula Killer Curves Mascara is a great one to add to your collection as it lengthens and curls and has an awesome, buildable formula. I’m always on the hunt for a good mascara and the wand on this one does such a nice job of curling, I don’t even have to use an eyelash curler!
Wear a Bright Lip Color
Last but not least, one of the best ways to refresh your spring makeup looks is to break out some fun, bright lip shades! I’m talking corals, pinks, and rose shades that will make your lips really pop. The best part? Bright lipsticks work well with so many makeup looks, making them a great choice for your spring makeup collection.
Physicians Formula’s new Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipsticks are my current lip obsession and I’m seriously swooning over all the gorgeous colors in the collection. For spring I can’t get enough of the shades “Tu-lip Treatment”, “Coral Minerals” and “Magentle Formula”. Also can we acknowledge how cute those names are?! (P.S. I’m wearing the shade Tu-lip Treatment!)
I’ll also add that the velvet finish on these lipsticks feels ah-mazing on the lips and they’re super easy to apply. They also hold up really well to eating, drinking, and my boys can attest they’re mommy kiss-proof! 😉
