5 Makeup Products You Need This Spring

Now that spring is finally here, it’s time for a fresh start. As the trees start to blossom and flowers begin to bloom, now is the perfect time to put away your softer winter makeup shades and replace them with something more lively. Winter products tend to be very heavy and moisturizing and; however, as we transition into the warmer months, you can switch to lighter formulas and add pops of color. 

Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint

As we go into another spring and summer of our new normal, masks are still a prevalent part of our lives. Lighter base products are best–suited for longer weartime under your mask. This new skin tint from Fenty Beauty is perfect for a spring and summertime base. 

The finish of this lightweight formula is truly skin–like and almost undetectable on the skin. You can still build this up for a medium coverage if that’s your desired look. The liquid formula sinks into the skin and melts away, leaving behind a perfect, my–skin–but–better type finish. 

This is a breathable formulation that will last all day under your mask—so, you will never need to worry about clumping or the product moving around on your face.You can go do all the fun warm weather activities you want without having to fix your makeup.

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush

Sticking with cream products, this Rare Beauty liquid blush is a perfect way to add some life back into your complexion. Don’t be fooled by the traditional reputation of cream products and the assumption that they have sheer pigmentation. This specific formula is extremely strong in terms of color payoff and will build up fast. Make sure to use a light hand because a little goes a very long way. 

This is an easy, breezy formula that you can apply with your fingers, a sponge, or even a brush. It is also versatile; you can use it to create many different looks. The shades of this blush are unique and refreshing for the spring and summertime, but you can also stick with neutrals if you prefer.

Recently, the Madison Beer Vogue Beauty Secrets video has gotten popular across many different social media platforms, especially TikTok. In this tutorial, Beer uses the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand in the shade Spotlight, which is a champagne gold color.
