Have you started making changes to your skin care routine before spring arrives? Besides making skin care swaps, don’t forget to do the same for makeup. Springtime calls for lighter and brighter makeup! When transitioning from winter to spring, think lighter formulas and vivid colors.
Need some ideas or inspiration? Check out these five easy makeup changes you can make just in time for spring:
As the weather starts to warm up, your skin won’t need such heavy coverage, so a great alternative for your everyday makeup is BB cream. BB creams are perfect for spring as they offer light coverage and give your skin a dewy look. Most BB creams are also formulated with sunscreen so you get added sun protection!
If you’re looking for a BB cream that’s light enough for spring and adds a bit of dewiness to your complexion, then you can’t go wrong with Dear, Klairs’ Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++. This BB cream helps even out your skin tone while keeping your skin hydrated, plus it’s suitable for all skin types including sensitive and acne-prone skin. If you find that you still need a bit more coverage, feel free to mix a few drops of this with your foundation.
One of the easiest ways to look refreshed all spring is to integrate natural-looking blushes into your makeup routine. A’PIEU’s Juicy-Pang Jelly Blushers are perfect for adding a touch of bright yet soft color to your complexion. They boast a jelly-like texture that melts right into your skin and leaves a light, fresh finish. The Juicy-Pang Jelly Blushers are available in six hues, and the shade CR01 Peach is just right for creating naturally flushed cheeks for spring.
Spring is a great time to play around with colors, so don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit. While you may be tempted to reach for pastel eye shadow shades, try going for neon colors instead. Neon eye makeup is a huge makeup trend for 2020, and they look great for both daytime and night makeup looks!
Create bold and dramatic eye makeup looks with 3CE’s One Color Shadows. Available in seven shades, each eye shadow offers a high color payoff, and you won’t have to worry about smudging throughout the day as the shadows are formulated with sebum-absorbing powder.
Neon eye makeup isn’t the only makeup trend to be excited about this spring. The floating eyeliner trend is also worth trying in the new season!
To create the look, prime your lids with an eye primer to ensure your eyeliner stays put for hours. Next, pick an eyeliner with a sharp tip, and draw an arc just a little bit above your natural crease to achieve that floating effect.
You can use a black eyeliner for this look, but to add extra drama, go for a colored eyeliner. There are plenty of eyeliner options to pick from, such as RiRe’s Luxe Gel Eyeliner, lilybyred’s Starry Eyes Am9 To Pm9 Gel Eye Liner and KLEANCOLOR’s Along The Lines Liquid Eyeliner.
The final makeup change for spring is to switch to lip tints. Lip tints are just as pigmented as lipsticks while being more lightweight and ideal for warm spring weather.
Not sure which lip tint to reach for? I’M MEME I’m Tic Toc Tint Lip Cashmere from MEMEBOX will be your springtime favorite. It’s creamy, highly pigmented and feels super light on the lips. Its sponge tip also allows you to create a gradient lip look, so you can go for either sheer or bolder coverage.
