Even though Mother Nature can’t make up her mind between warm weather and sleet, the calendar says that Spring is officially here! Because I’ve been needing some sun on my face for weeks, I thought it would be fun to gather up my top Spring favorites to show you so we can all make the most out of the season this year!
Clean Matte BB Cream by CoverGirl $5.59-$6.79 on Amazon.
When the weather starts to warm up, I like to switch to lighter face makeup for my day to day look. This Clean Matte BB Cream by CoverGirl is AWESOME for that! I love it because it has a little bit more coverage than your average BB cream, but is still super light and airy. Because it’s matte, you won’t look like an oily mess by the end of the day. But it’s not drying AT ALL. It’s basically everything you can ask of in a BB cream!
Natural Glow Firming Moisturizer by Jergens $7.99 on Amazon
I don’t know about you, but the first time I put on shorts after a long winter, I am blinded by how pale I am. Anyone else? I really like this Natural Glow Firming Moisturizer by Jergens because it gradually provides a natural-looking tan while hydrating the skin. I don’t even need to use a mitt! I just wash my hands right after I apply the lotion so it doesn’t stain my palms.
Note: Even though I’m very fair, I still prefer the medium to tan shade.
Tattoo Studio Brow Gel by Maybelline $9.98-$12.99 (Depending on the shade) On Amazon.
This is the best affordable brow gel in existence! Tattoo Studio Brow Gel by Maybelline has its name for reason! Once you put it on and let it dry, it’s not going ANYWEAR until you want it off. It’s smudge proof and waterproof.
INSERT PHOTO HERE!!!! I even got a hose sprayed directly on my face and it DIDN’T BUDGE! The gel is also very pigmented and has fibers in it to make your brows thicker and more voluminous. What could be better than that?!
Ultra Sheer Dry- Broad Spectrum Touch Sunscreen by Neutrogena $8.99 at Target. Mild Perfecter Face Sun Cream by Myconos $10.97 on Amazon.
Protecting your skin from the sun is SO INPORTANT (even when Mother Nature is confused about which season it is)! That said, I am picky about sunscreens. They tend to smell weird and break me out. I’ve tried and tossed out more sunscreens than I can count.
I really love the Ultra Sheer Dry- Broad Spectrum Touch Sunscreen by Neutrogena and the Mild Perfecter Face Sun Cream by Myconos. Both of them work really well, are super-fast drying, don’t smell funny, aren’t greasy, and don’t break me out. Plus, the Face Sun Cream is water based, whitening and anti-aging!
Rouge Signature Matte Lip Ink by L’Oreal $9.97-$11-99 (Depending on the shade) On Amazon.
Shades from left to right are I Rule, I Represent, and I Am Worth It.
I’m going to honest, the first time I tried these, I was a little disappointed. I had the expectation that they would last ALL DAY, and they definitely do not. But once I let that idea go, I fell in love with these Rouge Signature Matte Lip Ink by L’Oreal! They’re very matte, feels like NOTHING (I mean NOTHINH) on your lips, are pigmented, and smudge proof (except the red, it smudges a little bit). I only have to touch it up after I eat. So if you don’t mind reapplying a couple times a day, I think you’ll be a big fan of these mighty matte colors.
Anytime Anywhere Scalp + Hair Milk Oil by Kristin Ess $14.00 at Target
Because my hair is naturally so dry, I feel like hair oil is an essential for my hair routine. This Anytime Anywhere Scalp + Hair Milk Oil by Kristin Ess is impressive – especially for the reasonable price. I love it because you only need the tiniest bit, it’s super lightweight, and it smells AMAZING! Like, seriously, I always get complimented on how good I smell whenever I use this. And isn’t that one the best compliments you can receive?!
Moisture Rescue Gel-Cream Face Moisturizer by Garnier SkinActive $6.62 on Amazon.
My skin has a REALLY hard time transitioning from cold to warm weather. It has a “big meltdown” as I like to call it. This Moisture Rescue Gel-Cream Face Moisturizer by Garnier SkinActive seems to just calm everything down. It’s oil-free with vitamin E and fruit water. The gel is hydrating and feels nice and cool on the skin. And I SWAER it helps fill in my pores, even though it doesn’t claim to do so.
Smooth Air Dry Anti- Frizz Cream by Garnier Fructis $3.49 on Amazon.
When the weather starts to get warmer, I don’t want a blow dryer blasting hot air all over me. But… I get super frizzy hair if I let my hair air dry. However, I found a magic solution to my frizzy drama: The Smooth Air Dry Anti- Frizz Cream by Garnier Fructis! This helps me get smooth, non-frizzy hair without the heat. One thing to note is that you CAN go overboard on this stuff. A little goes a long way. If you’re not careful, you will end you with very flat, weighed down hair. But apply it correctly and you will have beautiful healthy looking hair!
That’s all for my list! Do you have any must-haves for spring? I would love to know in the comments! That way, everyone can enjoy all the spring things!
Love you wonderful people! Don’t ever forget You Are Enough!
