Must Have Beauty Products for Spring

Spring is herrrreeeee and I am so ready for warm weather, dewy skin, bright nail polish, and coral lips!  Here are my must haves this spring!

 BRIGHT NAILS  

 On my nails: Essie Mint Candy Apple 

I love pastels and also bright colors for spring and summer.  A bright pop of color on my nails brings out a summer tan and looks so cute with summery outfits.

 FAKE TAN 

Everyone knows that laying out in the sun is bad, and nowadays you don’t have to with all of these self-tanning options.  I’ve got three kinds here, a spray, a mousse, and a gradual tan lotion.  All of these are really good, and not orange!

 LIGHTWEIGHT FOUNDATION W SPF 

I don’t know about you, but living in Texas in 100+ degree weather, the last thing I want on my face is a thick, full coverage, heavy foundation. These three foundations are super lightweight, last all day, and contain SPF.

MOISTURIZERS  

Warmer weather means skirts, shorts, dresses, and open toes, so you don’t want to have dry skin!  Just because it’s not dry winter anymore doesn’t mean to forget your facial moisturizer and eye cream!  Toss these creams in the fridge to give a nice cooling, refreshing feeling to your skin in the morning before you apply your makeup.  

Always use a body lotion to make your skin soft and smooth, and show off those legs!  I have been obsessed with Original Jergens my entire life!  I love the scent of it. Also, don’t forget to moisturize your feet!  Dry skin and sandals are no good!  This super thick foot cream gives a tingling and cooling effect. 

 A CORAL LIP 

Oh, do I love a coral lip.  Bright corals, sheer corals, give me all the corals!  Coral lips are pretty much universally flattering, and so springy!

 DEWY SKIN 

I love any kind of highlight or illuminizer.  I have started mixing a liquid illuminizer with my foundation and I LOVE the result!  My sweet friend Gillian of A Pretty Trippy Blog sent me this one by Becca in Pearl and it is seriously beautiful!!! #palegirlsforlife 

Cream bronzers, highlighters, and blushes will give you a fresh glow and give the skin some luminosity.  If cream products aren’t your thing, use a powder highlight on the tops of your cheekbones for that “jlo glow”.  

Setting my makeup with a setting spray or something like MAC Fix + really helps with making my face look fresh and dewy.  

What are your must haves for spring?

  1. Bahaha – I love the self-tanner that’s called “Fake Bake” – THE BEST. Although I don’t use tanner (I like to stay ghostly all year round) but that’s got to be the best out there. What a name.

    I’m so glad you like the Becca stuff! Should I splurge and get the pressed one during the sale? My list is already ridic. But I’m soooo tempted :):) Also, how is the MAC Strobe Cream (is that what it is in the silver/white tube on the left)?

    Fun list Amy!

    • Hahaha!!! I know, self tanners always have such funny names. Even with self tanner, I am still ghostly.
      Yes, get a pressed one! I bought the Opal one when they first came out and I like it a lot. I think I like liquids better though. It gives a more natural glow! The strobe cream is a lot like the Becca pearl but it’s not as good. It’s thinner and doesn’t have as much of a sheen. I use it under my foundation cause it won’t show up on top.
