Spring is here- Oh My Goodness can you believe it, already? Of course with spring, also comes the seasonal makeup bag refresh! Every season- or every weekend– I always head to Target for life essentials- a new mascara, deodorant, cute new bathing suits, and a LONG and trust me I mean LONG list of beauty items. On a recent trip to Target I was wandering endlessly up and down the aisles checking out all the new, amazing items and brands they are carrying- hello Nuxe and S.W. Basics. When it got me thinking, we are seriously in spring mode, and I need to change out my makeup bag. So I thought what better way than to jump right into spring the right way that with five, yes you heard it correctly- FIVE easy steps to a Spring Beauty Bag Refresh #TargetStyle…
STEP 1: When it comes to great spring makeup, it is always ALL about the skin. Bright, radiant and beautiful skin is always in. So this spring make NO exception. I like to prep my skin with a great moisturizer like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturizer. Followed with a light layer of my favorite foundation for Spring- the L’Oreal Magic Lumi Foundation with SPF 20.
STEP 2: Brighten the eyes with concealer like the AMAZING Laneige Cushion Concealer. This stuff ROCKS, one part skincare, mixed with one part phenomenal coverage. This cushion concealer covers amazingly; color corrects, moisturizes, and brightens the skin all with one quick swipe of the cushion tip. I am OBSESSED!
STEP 3: Brighten up the rest of the skin with a bit of color and highlighting thanks to the Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Highlighter in Arabian Nights. This highlighter is simply gorgeous! It is a multi-shade compact packed full of amazing skin perfecting shades and shimmer. Packed with an anti-aging formula, this highlighter increases collagen production and hydrates skin all while leaving the most gorgeous shade of highlight amongst the cheekbones.
STEP 4: Moving up to the eyes, this spring is full of gorgeous shades of bronze, smoked taupes, corals, teals, blues and nudes. Now it is no mystery, I am a HUGE fan of taupes and nudes. So I grabbed my trusty shades of L’Oreal Infalliable Pressed Pigments- these shimmery pigment shades of bronze, amber gold, and taupe are the perfect companion to gorgeous, highlighted skin. I added the L’Oreal Infalliable Pressed Pigment in Iced Latte from the lash line to the brow bone to give the eyes a nice brightening effect with color. Followed by L’Oreal Infalliable Pressed Pigment in Bronzed Taupe pressed into the crease and dragged a bit under the bottom lash line. Followed with a bit of L’Oreal Infalliable Pressed Pigment in Amber Rush, to give a bit of smoked bronze to the lids. Followed with two coats of my favorite lash plumping mascara.
STEP 5: For the lips I love a good nude lip for the day or a brighter shade for the evening. So I grabbed my Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Colour in Nirvana– which is a beautiful neutral nude, that looks amazing on ALL skin tones and shades, followed with a light dab of Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Color in Eden– a soft juicy pink in the center of the lips for a lip plumping effect.
There you have it, five super easy steps to a Spring Beauty Bag Refresh full of gorgeous skin, bronzed eyes, nude lips and highlighted cheeks. What are your favorite Spring Beauty trends?
