10 Spring Beauty Essentials
Lip Balm with SPF
We can't stress enough the importance of lip balm! Keep those lips moisturized, protected, and beautiful. Chapped and/or cracked lips are painful. Lip balm should be seen as a base for your lipstick or lip gloss.
To achieve that natural look, go easy on the eye makeup. That really means to heavily rely on your mascara. Mascara can go such a long way in keeping your makeup looking like its barely there. With that said, invest in a mascara beyond the basic ones.
Tinted Moisturizer with SPF
This is my personal favorite. Tinted moisturizer is my best friend year long throughout the seasons. It provides the necessary coverage to even out your skin tone and protection from the sun. There are many amazing brands out there to consider.
A quick way to get rid of that shine is to use an oil sheet. Pounding on more powder sometimes only makes it worse and doesn't even get rid of that shine. Be careful with using generic brands vs. established brands, because they actually yield different results. In conclusion, oil sheets work...trust us.
Have some more fun with your hair with braids and waves. Creating some beachy waves will add movement to your hair. With a spray, it is super easy!
Try a pink or orange or even a mix for a Spring time glow. Especially if you aren't completely satisfied with your sunkissed glow, make sure to add a hint of color to your cheeks.
A pop of pink or orange will create that natural yet effortlessly fabulous look. By going easy on the eyes, you can concentrate more on your lips. We love that clean, fresh face with a bright lip.
For extra coverage, use a powder to seal the deal. After all, flawless but natural is key. Use a powder brush to lightly dust powder on your face focusing on the T-zone.
Embrace the seagreen, fuschia, turquoise, and lime colored polishes! In the spirit of being bright and beautiful, try those obnoxious colors and perhaps a dash of glitter.
The secret to keeping a warm glow is brushing on some bronzer. Bronzer is another trick to enhance and perfect your skin tone.
