How to Transition Your Makeup Routine for Spring
Can we all just stop for a minute and rejoice over the fact that spring is officially here?! The gorgeous weather, the budding flowers, and lighter layers all make it one of my favorite seasons, but while we might always update our spring wardrobe, we often forget that our makeup routine needs a little revamping as well. That’s why today I’m sharing with you my most helpful tips on how to transition your makeup products from winter to spring, and my favorite inexpensive beauty products at the moment to add to your collection.
Add Some Color to the Eyes
While dark shades like brown and navy are beautiful for the fall and winter months, spring is the perfect time to add in pops of color to your makeup routine. In lieu of a dark smokey eye, try wearing lighter shades and incorporating pretty pastels like pinks, purples, blues, and greens. Not comfortable wearing color on the lid? Try adding a bit of color to the lower lash line or inner tear duct. It’s an easy, subtle way to brighten up the eyes while incorporating fun colors.
Brighten the Cheeks and Lips
As mentioned above, it’s time to trade in deep colors like red, berry, and mauve for something lighter and brighter like pink, fuchsia, and coral on the lips. Even if you don’t necessarily like wearing a bold lip, a light pink or nude are the perfect go-to lip shades for spring. Second, get rid of the dark blushes and go lighter with a pale pink or peach tone to really brighten up the face.
Choose a Lighter Foundation
With the warmer weather upon us, it’s time to trade in heavy, full coverage foundations for something a little lighter like BB creams and tinted moisturizers. Less is definitely more and I always love letting my natural skin shine through in the spring and summer months. Don’t forget to add SPF to your beauty routine, for protection when out enjoying the beautiful weather!
I may be fair skinned, but even I like to add a little glow to my skin once I start wearing dresses, skirts, and short sleeves. Finding a good bronzer and highlight to add a soft glow to the cheeks is a must and will really help your skin look beautiful. Bronzer can be dusted on the cheekbones, brow temples, and even on the collar bone to add in a nice, natural-looking glow. For even more color, I love using Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer on my legs and arms.
