As winter fades, and spring begins, our makeup routine may need to change with the change in season. While we focus on moisturizing to keep our skin supple in the chilly winter days, spring calls for more primer and setting spray and dewy, bronzed looks. Check out these 10 items that you need in your makeup bag this season.
- Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Who doesn’t need a little bronzing to hide that winter “tan?” This bronzer is perfect for basically everyone and now comes in shades. I use this bronzer year-round for a sun-kissed look so that I always look like I just got back from the beach.
- Tarte Sugar Rush Skin Treat Blurring Skin Tint
I recently won this product in a giveaway. It was something I was not anticipating purchasing myself but was interested in trying. I will definitely be repurchasing it once I run out, which will be a long time from now because a very small amount goes a long way! This is all I need for those days when I look like I woke up in a swamp, and perfect for work when I am running late. This sheer formula is so lightweight and blurs all of your imperfections for a brighter look instantly.
- Morphe Continuous Setting Mist
I’m sure you have heard the great debate on whether or not setting spray is necessary. I am on the fence about it. However, this setting spray is the real deal. Its aerosol spray nozzle lightly mists your face without leaving large droplets all over you like spray nozzles do. I can tell you that my makeup does not BUDGE when I wear this stuff, and it is a great refresh on hot days.
- Benefit Full Proof Brow Powder & Gimme Brow
Fluffy brows are all the rage right now. Benefit has the perfect products for a quick and easy fluffy brow. Each powder comes with two different shades for a more realistic ombre look. Work the brow powder upwards for a look that will keep each hair in place all day.
- Mario Badescu Spray
New Year, new skin! This spring is the perfect time to start that new skincare routine. These facial sprays are the perfect hydrating and oil-free addition to your routine. Simply spray your face a few times in between toner and moisturizer for a glowing, hydrated face.
- Billie Razor
I am prone to nicks from shaving. I don’t know how I do it, but I do. After seeing ads all over my Instagram feed for Billie, I decided to give this “women’s razor” a try. I have never experienced a closer and softer shave than I do when I shave with Billie. Best part? No pink tax.
- Kopari Coconut Oil Deodorant
I’ve recently joined the natural deodorant train. I was intimidated because I had heard the horror stories about smelling bad with the use of natural deodorants. I received a suggestion to try this deodorant, and I am in love! It actually hydrates your underarms (I know, who wants MORE moisture under there?!) which actually seemed to prevent sweating that usually occurred for me with other natural deodorants! It is very smooth and sheer, so you do not have to worry about any caking under there. I have asked people to do smell tests on me and so far. so good!
- Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Brush
This styling tool is a game changer. If you are not savvy with a regular blow-dryer, or just want that quick two-in-one tool, this is for you. I have received tons of compliments since bringing this into my routine. This hair dryer brush gives an effortless blowout and is great for touchups before your night out!
- Monat Rejuvabeads Split End Mender
We are all guilty of skipping our regular hair trims. We shouldn’t, but we do. Monat’s Rejuvabeads are split-end menders. They literally seal your split ends together and each application can last 4-5 days. It also works great as a detangler out of the shower! With this product, you don’t have to feel bad about those split ends anymore. Give yourself a fresh-cut look in no time!
- Laneige Lip Glowy Balm
I am obsessed with lip balm. I am prone to chapped lips, and I am always on the hunt for the next best hydrator. This balm is slightly tinted and provides a moisturized, glowing look. You will feel super kissable all day.
