Spring Make-Up

When you think Spring cleaning, you usually think about how to de-clutter your living space, and even your closet. Well, cleaning out your closet is a whole post of it's own, but first I wanted to talk about how to lighten your make-up bag!

Spring and Summer is all about the fresh-faced look. You want a barely there make-up look: clean, even, and dewy skin, lush lashes, and a pretty flush. This means that you can toss (or store if it's newer) your heavy foundations, powders, and thick dark lipsticks. You want make-up that seems like it's barely there, so stick to BB creams or tinted moisturizer for coverage. If you have problem areas, use concealer sparingly. For blush, stick to creams, gels or tinted liquids. They last longer in the heat and sweat, and provide a more natural looking inner glow. For your lips it's a similar idea; a light tint that looks like it's from within, so a pretty rose tint will do. For a finishing touch, to complete the look, use a thickening and lengthening mascara. It will provide the perfect amount of definition to make your eyes pop!

  1. Wonderful post sweetie, thank you for sharing your make up tips with us! Being good at make up has never been a strong point of mine but hopefully i'll be able to achieve this barely there look as I really love how natural it looks :)

    Take care,

  2. I love fresh, clean makeup for spring -- I've never tried cheek tint but I do love the dewy look it gives.
