Spring is herrrreeeee and I am so ready for warm weather, dewy skin, bright nail polish, and coral lips! Here are my must haves this spring!
On my nails: Essie Mint Candy Apple
I love pastels and also bright colors for spring and summer. A bright pop of color on my nails brings out a summer tan and looks so cute with summery outfits.
Everyone knows that laying out in the sun is bad, and nowadays you don’t have to with all of these self-tanning options. I’ve got three kinds here, a spray, a mousse, and a gradual tan lotion. All of these are really good, and not orange!
LIGHTWEIGHT FOUNDATION W SPF
I don’t know about you, but living in Texas in 100+ degree weather, the last thing I want on my face is a thick, full coverage, heavy foundation. These three foundations are super lightweight, last all day, and contain SPF.
Warmer weather means skirts, shorts, dresses, and open toes, so you don’t want to have dry skin! Just because it’s not dry winter anymore doesn’t mean to forget your facial moisturizer and eye cream! Toss these creams in the fridge to give a nice cooling, refreshing feeling to your skin in the morning before you apply your makeup.
Always use a body lotion to make your skin soft and smooth, and show off those legs! I have been obsessed with Original Jergens my entire life! I love the scent of it. Also, don’t forget to moisturize your feet! Dry skin and sandals are no good! This super thick foot cream gives a tingling and cooling effect.
A CORAL LIP
Oh, do I love a coral lip. Bright corals, sheer corals, give me all the corals! Coral lips are pretty much universally flattering, and so springy!
I love any kind of highlight or illuminizer. I have started mixing a liquid illuminizer with my foundation and I LOVE the result! My sweet friend Gillian of A Pretty Trippy Blog sent me this one by Becca in Pearl and it is seriously beautiful!!! #palegirlsforlife
Cream bronzers, highlighters, and blushes will give you a fresh glow and give the skin some luminosity. If cream products aren’t your thing, use a powder highlight on the tops of your cheekbones for that “jlo glow”.
Setting my makeup with a setting spray or something like MAC Fix + really helps with making my face look fresh and dewy.
