Spring is kicking into high gear; I know here in Southern California we have been rocking ultra warm weather daily. A mix of bright sunshine and semi-warm Santa Ana winds has me weirdly craving a semi-cold day- strange, right? Of course with spring weather I am always looking for natural, beautiful makeup with ultra dewy, glowing skin-skin is in, right? This weekend I headed to Target to give my beauty arsenal a solid Spring-over and restock on a few of my favorites to achieve the much-coveted spring dewy, glowing skin we saw on the runways. Time to resist the bold lipsticks, and grab yourself a daily dose of a glow, it’s time for: New Additions to My Spring Beauty Wardrobe #TargetStyle…
Complexion for spring is all about dewy, glowing skin. I know I am one person who always loves a great dewy base on the skin and always am in search of my next favorite. When browsing through the beauty section at Target I ran across Pacifica Natural Skin ALIGHT Multi-Mineral BB Cream. Talk about the perfect spring dewy base- this stuff ROCKS! Seriously, it rocks! Let’s talk about why… It is a weightless formula that just allows skin to be radiant thanks to its unique blend of illuminating and brightening mineral pigments that adjust to your skin within seconds after application. It is hands down the most natural, dewy looking complexion perfector that I have ever tried. It helps diminish fine lines, pores and uneven skin tone all while being free of petroleum, parabens, and phthalates. It seriously is amazingness in a tube! I recently talked about the Laneige Cushion Concealer here, and I am obsessed with it so much, I had to pick up a backup spare. This concealer is simply stunning on the skin as it provides phenomenal, long-lasting coverage. Lightens dark spots-a must, adds hydration to the skin, and protects the skin with its SPF 30 from any harmful UV rays. Needless to say it is a MUST HAVE! Last up in the complexion department, I have been obsessed with Pixi by Petra Glow Mist. This all over face mist has been making its way on solid rotation and becoming a fast fixture in my makeup bag. A spritz or two of this midday adds a bit of hydration, a hint of glow and luminosity thanks to its nourishing formula cultivated of 13 natural oils, Aloe Vera and fruit extracts. It is perfect for a midday refresh or a solid makeup setting spray when you need just a bit of oomph added.
One of my most favorite items I picked up during my Target stop was the end all, be all of palettes for spring in the form of Pixi by Petra Palette Bronzette. Stop the press y’all, this palette you NEED now-literally do not walk, RUN to your nearest Target. This palette covers a little bit of everything for everyone. From the super silky bronzer to the gorgeous highlight all the way to the luminous eyeshadow shades- this palette is amazing. I am a neutral lover, so this palette is the perfect palette for me as I can rock a solid wash of a gorgeous champagne-like shade from the lid to the brow bone, followed with a hint of bronze shade to the lids. I have been loving the ease of having a palette with powder eyeliner in it as well to lightly add a bit of smudged liner to the eyes. To take your beauty into the evening, you can up the drama by using the darker crease shades and add a bit of powder eyeliner to add depth and drama. There is a gorgeous bronzer, a luminous highlighter and a neutral peachy pink blush to cover your bases. If you are confused at what goes where, this palette has that covered as well with its words on the cover letting you know which shades are meant for what. I absolutely LOVE this palette and I promise you NEED it ASAP.
One thing I picked up for spring was a few of the new ORLY Color Amp’d Nail Polishes. I grabbed two shades #50644-The Boulevard- a gorgeous light pink shimmer polish and shade #50629 Valley Girl- a bright purple creamy like shade–both are just perfection for spring. This polish is kind of something else-holy wow- the staying is impeccable as it’s flawless wear for over a week and dries extremely fast. The flexible color technology reminds me almost of a gel polish but wayyyyyyy easier to remove. It is super simple to apply as well with its two-step process that is a non-smudge formula. First you apply two coats of your favorite ORLY Color Amp’d Flexible Color, followed by a sealing coat of the ORLY Color Amp’d Flexible Sealcoat. I had a manicure on my nails for over a week and let’s just say there is barely a chip in sight-I am hooked!
The last two items I grabbed to complete my spring beauty wardrobe are beauty essentials in my book. Pacifica Natural Skincare ESSENTIAL Makeup Removing Wipes, these wipes are sooooooooo good. They smell amazing thanks to the jasmine and coconut water allowing them to be ultra gentle on the skin as they are the perfect way to remove the day away. The unique combination of Jojoba oil, Aloe Vera and Coconut Milk infused in these wipes is simply amazing and oh-so gentle and effective on the skin. Another beauty essential for me is in the form of a serum, the Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum has been rocking my world. Proven to be extremely effective at visibly reducing deep lines and wrinkles all while leaving you with younger looking skin. This serum is the perfect companion to supercharge your skincare regimen. It is super light on the skin with its antioxidant complex combined with the most powerful form of Matrixyl- it seriously is something special and I am hooked!
So there you have it, a few of my newest spring beauty picks that I picked up from Target. I am ready to jump right into spring and get gorgeous, glowing skin with a side of a long lasting spring manicure. What are a few of your spring beauty picks?
