Spring is around the corner and it’s time for a spring beauty spruce up with the freshest green beauty products in all the land. We love, love Spring so much! The colors, time to open the windows to get fresh air in, it’s when life starts to bloom, animals start dating, and everything just starts to feel fresh, full of zest.
Here are some of our current favorites that are giving us life as we start to come out of the dead of winter.
If you’re lucky enough to have a great complexion and clear skin, then you can totally skip foundation (so jealous of you!!). Spring is a time to free your skin of full coverage foundations. Go for something light, airy, and let your natural beauty shine through. We are loving Gressa Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation for Spring. You can wear it on top of your sunscreen as it acts as a skin care (serum) and foundation (light coverage, buildable to medium) all-in-one. You can sheer this out as much as you’d like by mixing it with your favorite facial oil or moisturizer or use a light hand. It mixes with your natural oils through the day leaving you looking dewy, fresh, and glowing, the all natural way. If you are particularly oily, we would highly recommend using your favorite setting powder to combat any shine you do not want.
We are in love with Red Apple Lipstick Mascara. It doesn’t smudge, smear, and wears for an amazing 18 hours. Our lashes honestly look and feel healthier, too. The mascara even washes off easily, effortlessly even though it’s acting like a waterproof mascara. To really amp up our lashes, we also apply a coat of the Jane Iredale Pure Lash extension (which is also hands down the most amazing thing in the land) for some seriously sexy lashes, the all-natural way.
There are rules set on us when it comes to makeup. But, finding creativity in what makes us feel beautiful should give us a sense of freedom. With lip colors, we tend to think pinks, berries, and corals when we think of Spring. This is a rule meant to be broken. We love the color range with Axiology Lipsticks and most of all, the weight and feel on our lips. We want to be out enjoying life without having to worry about dried, cracking lips. Most of the colors can be easily reapplied without a mirror, too.
We may have gotten slightly lazy with sunscreen during the dark, dreary winter months. But, now that the sun is trying to come out, we need to break out our favorite sunscreens. We are firm believers in sunscreen to protect us from skin cancer, sun damage, and premature aging. There are a ton of choices out there, so we urge you to choose the one that’s best for you. Currently, we are loving the Coola Suncare Eco-Lux Sport SPF 50 Sunscreen Spray because it’s quick, easy, and we kind of love the high SPF. This is the easiest way we’ve found to reapply sunscreen through the day because it sprays on without smudging our entire face of makeup.
In keeping things quick and easy so you can go enjoy the outdoors, we love palettes so you don’t have to reach for too many products. Be sure to find the duo that suits your needs and skin tone. We love the Mineral Fushion Blonzer for a natural glow with the bronzer shade and that pop of pink on the apple on the cheeks that just screams Spring!
We like to keep the eyeshadow to a minimum or bare if possible, just to keep the routine as simple as possible, while focusing just on lashes. We also like to keep the brows in place with a brow gel and a little comb with the spoolie. We hope this helps with sprucing up your new Spring green beauty arsenal for the freshest and easiest to use products around. Now, go enjoy the blooms!
