Spring 2015 Beauty Essentials
Say goodbye to earth tones, knits, and boots. Spring has arrived! As much as I love my muaves and neutrals, it’s time to put those away and rock some color. Below are some of my beauty favorites and essentials for a sunny day out.
1. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream & Lip Therapy
You can’t call it a day without moisturized skin! First Aid Beauty sold at Sephora is a must have for Spring or any season. Every moisturizer I’ve tried over the years has either made my acne prone skin break out or oily. This skin care line came to my skin’s rescue and it’s hands down the best stuff invented. I apply the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream in the morning after cleansing my skin, and I use the Ultra Repair Lip Therapy to moisturize my lips throughout the day. Try First Aid Beauty out, your skin will love you forever!
2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Ever wondered how to get your eyebrows “on fleek”? Well this brow wiz will make you the queen of brows. Anastasia has a wide selection of shades, making it easier to find your perfect match. After I apply foundation, I fill in my eyebrows with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and set it with a clear eyebrow gel. Say goodbye to sparse brows!
3. NYX Wonder Pencil & Jumbo Eye Pencil
If you want to glam up your look for the day, you can't go wrong with NYX. It’s sold at most drugstores which makes it even better! Before applying eyeshadow I use the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil on my lids as a base. For a more natural look I line my waterline with the NYX Wonder Pencil. Quick Tip: Instead of black, use a white or nude eyeliner on your waterline to make your eyes appear bigger.
4. Loreal Telescopic Mascara
To make that eyeshadow pop your going to need long eyelashes! Loreal Telescopic Mascara is like extensions for your lashes. Put those falsies away!
5. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil
Don’t be afraid to rock some color, finish off the look with a vibrant lip pencil! My Spring favorite is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil in Manic. I use it by itself for a matte lip or as a lip liner before applying lipstick. Now you’re ready for the day!
Whether it’s a day out by the beach, a casual day at work or school, these products will keep you fresh and pretty throughout the season. Happy spring!
