Spring is here, and summer is right around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited! I know I’m ready for some fresh and light makeup. Are you?! Here are some beauty essentials I plan to reach for during warmer spring days! Tell me yours below in the comments!
Huda Beauty Cheeky Cream Blush should be a staple for all my easy breezy makeup ladies. It gives a gorgeous dewy glow and swipes on like a dream! It’s not sticky, blends beautifully, and melts into the skin to look natural. I love Proud Pink, which provides a beautiful, natural flush shade on my light, medium-neutral/warm skin tone.
This Sun Stalk’r Palette by Fenty is a great all-around product if you love a good multipurpose palette. It’s perfect for grabbing on the go and traveling because there is eyeshadow, highlight, and bronzer all in one. No matter how you use it, it’s easy to use and blends out effortlessly. In addition, the quality of both the shimmers and mattes is really lovely.
Even though I don’t normally gravitate towards powder foundations when it’s super warm, Infallible Fresh Wear Powder Foundation is perfect for spring and summer. It does a great job of covering imperfections while not looking “powdery” and controlling extra oils from the skin. In addition, I don’t need a setting spray for this powder foundation to wear all day nicely. This gives a natural, matte finish that looks beautiful on pores and feels lightweight.
Dior Backstage Foundation is one of my holy grail long-wear foundations that is a year-round favorite. It’s especially great in warm weather because of how skin-like it looks and how great it lasts – even in heat and humidity. This foundation gives sheer to medium-full coverage and still looks like skin. No matter how much layering is needed, it never gets cakey, which is why it’s so magical! I hear this is being reformulated, so if you like this version, grab it while you can!
If your skin needs extra prep to bring back some hydration after winter OR if you anticipate summer dehydrated skin, the F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask is for you. It also contains essential nutrients that alleviate signs of aging and loss of firmness and texture. It’s super easy to rotate into any current skincare rotation. I love that it’s not greasy or heavy and can be mixed with the skincare products I already use.
For a long time, I felt like I was the only one singing the praises of D-Bronzi Sunshine Drops. Then the word got out, and they went viral sometime last year. If you haven’t picked these up, you need to! They’re made to mix into other products to give added glow or deepen them without changing the texture. Just add a few drops of D-Bronzi into moisturizer, body lotion, foundation, and more. If your skin tone changes in the summertime, this one product can save you from having to buy entire new shades of foundation. It’s versatile, has skin-loving benefits, and one bottle will last forever. Seriously – get some!
One of the best drugstore products you can pick up this spring is e.l.f. Power Grip Primer. I love that it grips onto foundation like a champ plus has niacinamides that even out & brighten your skin tone to elevate dullness. I know it looks pink, but it applies clearly to the skin and doesn’t flake after drying. For $10, this is a staple worth adding to your beauty lineup.
The Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Balm is everything your lips need and then some – from the juicy color to the high gloss effect to the lip-loving benefits. Not only does this product smooth out the lines on your lips and make them appear plumper, but it also has many hydrating ingredients that boost collagen and anti-aging properties. It’s not too thick, not too thin, nor is it sticky. Its soft formula melts into your lips and feels ultra-nourishing.
