My Spring Beauty Picks

Spring is probably my favorite season. I love when the days get longer, the temperatures warmer, and the flowers and trees start blooming. As far as makeup goes, I like to go for bright and fresh colors so this is definitely the season for pinks and pastels for me. Here are my beauty picks for this spring.

On my nails I’ve been loving pastel colors like Julep’s Abigail, a light peony pink, and Farrah, a lilac (0.27 fl oz, $14 each). Another recent discovery is Essie’s Resort Fling (0.5 fl oz, $8.50), a subdued coral peach. Resort Fling isn’t a color I would normally gravitate toward but this shade is so cheery, it just instantly brightens my mood.

This spring my cheeks have been adorned in different shades of pink. NARS – New Attitude (0.16 oz, $29) is a bright cherry blossom pink that gives a nice flush of color. The tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Thankful is a limited edition color that was part of the Thoughtful Treasures Christmas Set ($19) which I just recently acquired on eBay. This blush is described as a golden pink that reads as an apricot pink on me. It’s warmer than New Attitude which makes it very versatile. Lastly, I’ve been reaching for my sample of Benefit Cosmetics’ Dandelion (0.25 oz, $28) which is a baby pink with beige undertones. It’s not very pigmented so it’s perfect when I just want a natural hint of color on my cheeks.

On my lips I generally tend to gravitate toward my-lips-but-better shades but even more so now that the temperatures are warming up. This is the time of the year where I like to switch to lighter, semi-sheer formulas, like balms and lip crayons. The Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry (0.1 oz, $17) is one of my favorite lip colors. It’s just a tad brighter than my natural lip color and gives a hint of sheen. The tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint in Energy (full size: 0.1 oz, $24) also came with the Thoughtful Treasures Set. It adjusts upon application and on my lips it gives a pop of bright pink color that’s semi-sheer so it still looks natural. I’ve also been reaching for the L’Oréal Colour Riche Lip Balm in Heavenly Berry (0.1 oz $7.99). It’s the darkest of the three – a nice berry pink. None of these are long-wearing but I like it that way.

Lastly, I want to give an honorable mention to my favorite eye color palette and fragrance this spring. I don’t wear eyeshadow on an everyday basis but when I do I’ve been reaching for the Urban Decay Naked3 Palette ($54).The rose colors are just perfect for spring. In terms of fragrance, I’ve been loving Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh (full size: 4.2 fl oz, $97). The top notes of raspberry, grapefruit, and pear make this a light, fresh, and fruity scent that embodies spring for me.
