Spring Makeup Bag Refresh

Spring makeup bag refresh.

Spring is officially in the air! As the weather gets warmer we like to switch up our wardrobes, the colours we wear, our hairstyle etc. So it only makes sense to want to freshen up your beauty routines as well. With all the products out there it’s hard to figure out what to buy, where to save and what to splurge on. I am here to help you find the best options for your spring makeup bag refresh.

1 – THE PERFECT SPRING SUMMER COMPLEXION PRODUCT – SAVE $

COVERGIRL SIMPLY AGELESS SKIN PERFECTING ESSENCE $21.99

Covergirl simply ageless skin Perfector essence.

During the warmer months I highly recommend switching from a full coverage foundation to something more sheer and lightweight. The one product I recommend to everyone is the COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Skin Perfecting Essence because it delivers the most beautiful sheer to medium coverage making it ideal for everyday wear.  I literally can not believe that this incredible foundation is available for $21.99. It is so luxurious and rivals all of the high end foundation products out there.

The formula is super innovative too. Micro droplets of pigment are suspended in serum which has amazing skincare benefits:

  • Skincare makeup hybrid formulated with 0.5% bakuchiol, a plant-based retinol alternative
  • Skin-plumping formula reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Formulated with tranexamic acid, the potent tone-improving facial essence

2 – A NEW SPRING BLUSH – SAVE $

A new blush colour is a quick and easy way to update your beauty bag for spring and summer. This year the big trend we are seeing is cream blush and if you know me you know I am beyond obsessed with cream blush. My go to is the:

RIMMEL LONDON KIND AND FREE MULTISTICK $9

Rimmel London Kind and Free Multistick

Rimmel London’s Kind and Free Multi stick is the most fabulous cream blush, and it doubles as a lip product!

  • This cruelty-free​, clean and vegan blush and lipstick multi-stick is formulated without perfume and mineral oils.
  • Delivers buildable highly pigmented color in perfect shades with an intensely moisturizing formula.
  • The nourishing formula infused with skin-loving ingredients glides on effortlessly.

3- A FABULOUS NEW SEASONAL FRAGRANCE- SPLURGE $$$

There is no better way to put a little pep in your step than investing in a new seasonal fragrance.

The newest fragrance from Marc Jacobs is the epitome of spring and summer. The bottle boasts the iconic Marc Jacobs design with a cute twist. I love everything about this sweet summer scent.

MARC JACOBS DAISY WILD EAU DE PARFUM $120 +

Marc Jacobs Daisy Wild.

This is the must have fragrance this season!

Embrace your wild side with Marc Jacobs Daisy Wild, a vibrant and feminine blend of jasmine, vetiver, and notes of banana blossom, never seen before in prestige perfumery.

Capturing the essence of nature, this eau de parfum exudes a fresh fragrance reminiscent of a wildflower bouquet. It inspires you to embody your young, free-spirited self.

4- A NEW SKINCARE ESSENTIAL – EYE CREAM – SPLURGE $$$

As I mentioned above, during the warmer months we tend to use less foundation – this includes using less concealer. Keep your skin looking fresh by upping your skincare game.

Grab yourself an amazing under eye cream this spring!
