HELLO! With it being Spring now, my sister Caroline (@raisingave on Instagram for all you lovers of Mommy Instagrammers) FaceTimed me requesting for a post all about my favorite make up products to use for Spring. I'm a big fan of make up that is lightweight and covers up but doesn't slide off my face from sweat and lots of outdoor activities. My Spring/Summer plans for now is enduring my final semester of college before I graduate in July. Hope yours are more exciting than mine! Details for all my favorite Spring make up products are below the pictures, enjoy!
First and foremost, I love to use any kind of refreshing facial mist. Mario Badescu has one of my faves here and Tarte also has another fave here. I love to use these as primers, setting sprays, and just to spray my face throughout the day whether or not I have makeup on to refresh my face!
Foundation: Pixi Beauty H2O Skintint in No.2 Nude. I LOVE this product! This is a tinted gel that is moisturizing to your face and also has super great coverage! It can go from sheer to medium/full coverage if you keep building it! It also doesn't slide off my face if I get super oily or sweaty at all so I love it!
Concealer: For under eye concealer/highlight I like to use the yellow-y shade in the ELF Cream Contour Palette. This thing is so cheap and the pigmentation and quality is INSANE! I like to use cream products more in the Spring and Summer because I feel like it looks better and works better when it comes to lasting through hot and humid weather! If I have a pimple I'll just use any kind of my favorite concealer. My current fave is the L'Oreal Visible Lift Blur Concealer. I don't like the foundation at all, but I apply this concealer using my finger and let it sit for a minute before blending and it looks FLAWLESS.
Powder: My forever favorite powder is the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. I use it everyday no matter what the season. It locks my makeup in place and doesn't budge. And, it's also another super affordable powder!
Blush/Bronzer/Highlight: If you like to have more on your face during summer for dressy occasions or just because you like to have more on your face, I like to use the ELF Cream Contour Palette (as mentioned above) for my contour/bronzer as well. It doesn't budge and is amazing! I don't really wear blush all that often. If you have a favorite cream one I would recommend that! As for highlight, I'll just pop on whatever one I'm liking at the moment no matter what kind it is. I only really like to wear highlight on the tip of my nose and cupid's bow because I feel it really makes the face pop and look fresh.
Eyeshadow: I'm not much of an eyeshadow wear-er at all. Maybelline has some cream shadows that I've used in the past and love that are beautiful and don't budge!
Mascara: Anything waterproof is my preferred pretty much any time of the year, but especially during Spring and Summer. One of my faves is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in the waterproof formula. It's one of my favorite mascaras no matter what and I especially love that it has a waterproof version as well!
Brows: I love to use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow. It stays no matter what and the quality is just amazing. A little also goes such a long way with this product! I use the shade "Blonde." To set my brows I'll just use any kind of brow gel. One I love is from L'Oreal.
There you have it! I feel like that was such a lot of information to write down, but I hope it helps! On a day-to-day basis, I just put on powder, mascara, and do my brows during Spring and Summer, but will use these other products when I want to put other products on. Happy weekend!
