Everyday Spring Makeup

spring makeupSpring is finally here! Goodbye S.A.D, hello warm weather and sunshine! With the temperatures on the rise (here in Texas, ya’ll in the rest of the states shouldn’t be too far behind) I thought now would be a good time to share my spring time favs and go to’s!

I don’t know about you, but in the summer I like to keep my makeup fairly light, unless it’s a special event. My liquid foundation probably won’t get the chance to see sunlight, because powder foundation is a must for me in summer. I don’t have to worry about it sweating off, or it ending up all over my light colored shirts. Powder foundation is usually a lighter coverage than liquid, but summer is the time to focus on that skin care!

My all time favorite moisturizer is by Clinique and while I think their 3-step system is amazing, it can be kind of expensive to get all three. So I stick to more natural methods when it comes to face cleansing and use a good moisturizer to help prime my face for powder to help even out my skin tone. My forehead is still baked from Thailand, even though I wore sunscreen, but I just ordered a floppy hat to protect from future forehead baking.

Eyebrows are a must! I found a new location to get them arched, but I got lazy and didn’t feel like driving into Montrose, so I took a chance somewhere else, and she did them way too thin, so I’ll be filling these babies in for the next month or so.

I like to keep a neutral eye, with a thin line of liner to help bring out my eyes.

Lastly, I love lip colors that add moisture. I’m looking forward to picking up some new lipsticks and liners to add to my collection for the spring/summer to help my lips look more lively.
