Refresh Your Makeup For Spring

BB32315Now that we are toward the end of March, it’s time to put away the berry lipsticks and dark eyeshadow palettes. Giving your makeup a refreshed look for spring can help your mood and outlook. As warmer weather approaches, you can feel a little bliss knowing spring is just around the corner. Try these three tips to refresh your makeup for spring:

Go neutral:

If you’re not ready to pull out spring and summer eyeshadow shades, fear not! You can easily rock a neutral look on a day-to-day basis. Just find two shades that complement your skin tone (one light and one dark) and apply to define your eyes. Buy a small eyeshadow palette that has a few different options, like this palette from Sephora. You can mix up your makeup and look refreshed.

Pops of pink:

Blush and lipstick can go unnoticed, but they’re two places where the season play an important role. Berry-toned blushes and lipsticks are popular in fall and winter, but now that spring is quickly approaching, changing to light pink hues is your best option. I love Hibiscus Pop from Maybelline. This can double as a cream blush. Just apply a small amount on your cheeks and blend.

Lighten your base:

Wearing foundation every day can leave your skin feeling damaged and dry after a long winter. Try to skip out on foundation a few days each week. Instead, use concealer to cover any dark circles or pimples. Allowing your skin breathe will clear it of any blemishes or irritation. If you need more coverage, opt for a BB or CC cream, which is lighter than foundation.

  • Hey Kiara! These are great tips- now I just need the sunshine to catch up to the whole ‘its spring’ memo! I’d love for you to share a post at my link up tomorrow, if you’re interested!

    • Thanks for the comment, and yes sunshine would be great!

  • Yes to all of this! I’ve been going with a natural glow look (Aveeno Positively Radient tinted moisturizer with SPF does the trick!), also a peachier lip gloss than the rose i’ve been wearing all winter.

    finally, dark brown eyeliner instead of black… Just glowing and pretty!
    Great post!

    • I love all of those ideas! Brown eyeliner instead of black can definitely make a difference. And peach is a great color for spring as well. I have never used Aveeno products, but have always heard positive reviews. Thank you for your comment!
