Springtime for me is all about renewal and bright colors. No beauty routine and vanity is truly complete without a good face oil, sunscreen and a bold lip. Remember to keep your skin routine light and natural, and if you’re looking to integrate new colors into your beauty routine, consider bold pops of orange and rosy-peachy tones to brighten your complexion. These universally flattering tones are easy to wear and can be worn anytime, anywhere – from the office to the pool side. Take a peek at this mini-collection of products for some springtime beauty inspo!
It’s no secret Shiseido has been a leader of suncare for years, and their Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion for Face and Body is the perfect product to add to your routine, no matter what time of year. Their proprietary WetForce technology becomes more effective when it’s activated after coming in contact with water, and SPF50+ keeps you protected from UVA/UVB while enjoying the weather outdoors.
This incredibly lightweight foundation delivers the most flawless skin-like coverage without ever looking heavy, and the unique brush on the wand makes it super easy to apply. It’s perfect for everyday wear and the portable design makes it convenient to take with you for touch-ups. This oil-free formula also helps to diminish the look of pores and fine lines for a youthful, natural finish perfect for springtime.
I’ve always loved using creams to create the most effortless looks, and my favorites are the NARS Multiples. These super versatile sticks allow you total freedom to play with color and can be used on the eyes, cheeks, and lips! My go-to shade is Na Pali Coast
, which works on every skin tone for a beautiful flash of rosy, peachy radiance. Use your ring finger to apply to the tops of your cheeks and all over the eyelids for instant definition without any of the hassle or worry of using too much.
If you’ve never tried bold lips, now’s the time to try something like Surratt Automatique Lip Crayon in the color P.O.C. This highly flattering shade will brighten and warm up any complexion without being overpowering. The color can be layered for an intensely vibrant pop of color or sheered out for a more subtle look.
