Well, Chicago, we’re officially on what feels like our fourth winter, but I’m staying hopeful that spring is on its way! I mean, the groundhog did say so after all 🙂 In an attempt to bring my second favorite season that much closer, I’m rounding up a few of spring’s hottest trends. Check them out below, and see which products I’m lusting after or already use for each!
All You // The self-care trend truly exploded last year. From creating a personalized skincare routine to finding your perfect foundation shade match in a lineup of 40, it’s all about YOU and your signature go-to items. A few months ago, I picked up a new signature scent, Burberry My Burberry Blush, but I’ve also been loving Proenza Schouler’s Arizona, which is such a spring scent. For spring, I love to go lighter on the makeup too, usually opting for bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer and a thicker concealer. I’m DYING to try Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Away Concealer!
Power Pout // Though I’m usually not a gloss gal, that all changed last year! I started to lean into more metallic toppers like Pixi x Chloe Morello’s Lip Icing and Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Laquer, but this spring, bold high shine glosses with color are seriously trending. Keep the rest of your makeup simple, and let your lips do the talking (literally)! I want to try NARS Lip Gloss in Belize and MAC Cosmetics Cremesheen Glass in Just Superb to give the amped-up shine look a go.
Tropicalia Spring // After a long gray winter, spring is all about COLOR, and its reemergence into our routines! Whether it’s softly blended or in your face bold, make color work for you. One of my favorite ways to play with it is blush! I recently picked up bareMinerals Gen Nude Powder Blush in “You Had Me At Merlot,” and it’s the most gorgeous strawberry pink. Prefer more citrusy shades? Yellow eyeliner or orange lips bring the equator that much closer, even if you don’t have a sunny vacation planned!
