I’m starting March off with some thoughts of spring – spring clothes, spring shoes, spring beauty; just bring on the warmer weather and brighter colours! After what feels like a long winter, I’m definitely ready to put away the sweaters and dark lipsticks and embrace the lighter and brighter shades of spring and summer in every way!
The beauty products I’m sharing below (some new and some new to me) have me dreaming of all things spring, so check them out and let me know what you think!
Two Faced Melted Metal Lipsticks
During the cooler winter months, my go-to lip colours are either soft nudes, or bold reds and wine shades. But when the weather starts to warm up, I love to wear brighter and lighter pinks and corals. My go-to’s for the last couple of years have been MAC Satin Lipstick in Snob, Amplified Creme Lipstick in Saint Germain, and Creamsheen Lipstick in Ravishing, and for gloss I usually use Nars Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight. These fun-to-wear brights remind me that summer really is just around the corner. I wasn’t looking for something new, but I recently discovered Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick in Metallic Tutu and Metallic Bunny and I absolutely love them! The colours are perfect (non-garish) brights, have great consistency, and some pretty decent staying power, which is always a good thing. Stay tuned to my Instagram and you’ll be seeing lots of these liquid lipstick picks!
Tocca Florence Perfume
This gorgeous scent reminds me so much of spring. With hints of gardenia and bergamot, it is the perfect daytime perfume. While you can get this scent in so many products, I’m a big fan of the eau de parfum, which you dab on to your pulse points for perfect, old-fashioned luxury. This is my go-to perfume for every day because it is balanced and soft, so you won’t have to worry about offending your co-workers with something heavily scented. (And I love that you can get so many products in this scent, as seen below!)
Essie Polish in Go Go Geisha
Essie Go Go Geisha, a soft and delicate pink is my new favourite nail polish. I bought it on a whim and I can’t stop wearing it! It paints beautifully, finishes to a creamy nude-pink that goes with anything, and it dries quite quickly compared to other polishes. Wear it on its own for an understated look, or pair it with some glitter accents (or with Essie Bahama Mama, as I did for this week’s fun mani) – however you wear it, it’s a perfect spring neutral.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Prismatic Amethyst
I haven’t yet tried this gorgeous highlighter, but I am already hearing so many amazing things about it. From the soft, prismatic colour, to the super cute packaging, this is definitely going to be one of the hottest beauty products of the season – and it’s now available in stores and online. You can bet it’s on my shopping list for my next Sephora trip (along with the other beautiful Becca highlighters I’ve linked)!
Now that it’s March, are you craving all things spring? What are you looking forward to incorporating into you beauty routine this spring? Let me know in the comments below, I want to hear what you’re looking forward to this spring!
