Spring.

Fa la la la la. La la la la.

Spring makeup. What does it mean to you? To me, it means good skin + light makeup. Lots of dew; Lots of glow; Lots of highlight; Lots of sheer things, basically.

Beauty Products Putting a Spring in my Step

For good skin_

I’ve been turning to the Sunday Riley UFO oilIt’s a really great oil if you have blemish prone skin and need a little help clearing things up. I compared it to the Luna Sleeping Oil so you can read more on the difference there, but out of the two, I love UFO. Spring also means lots of hydration, dew and glow. For hydration, I’ve been turning to the Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid because it’s super lightweight, but gets the job done for my combo skin. It’s great to use before makeup, and at night as a light hydrator before a thicker moisturizer if the latter is necessary.

I also love face mists, but especially in the spring/ summer. They’re a great way to beef up the moisture, and a great mid-day refresher. I love using the Complex Beauty Afterglow complexion mist before I apply SPF and makeup because it gives the skin hydration and a beautiful radiance. As a midday refresher I love the Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist*It really brightens up the skin and adds some moisture without disturbing my makeup.

_For the base

Lightweight is the way to go and for that I’ve been reaching for my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer again. It’s an oldy, but a goody that I always gravitate towards during the warmer months. To add a tiny bit more coverage, but still keep the dew, Glossier Stretch Concealer has been the one. It’s not something you’d like if you like a lot of coverage with a matte finish. But if you like a light wash, it’s a good one. It looks very skin-like and natural while adding just a slight bit of coverage.

For the glow_

It’s all about either the Milk holographic stick, Glossier Moonstone Haloscope, Chanel Soleil tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid or Becca Moonstone liquid highlighterAll four give the skin such a gorgeous sheen and glow. The Milk holographic stick is great when you want a little something extra terrestrial. Glossier’s Moonstone is my go to when I want a nourished looking dewy highlight, Chanel’s is perfect when you want a wet looking golden highlight, and Becca’s Moonstone is great when I want something a little more metallic and shimmery. They all layer gorgeously on top as well.

For the lips_

I’m still into a stain on the lips, and for that I’ve been loving Glossier Generation G in Jam. This gives the lips a soft berry stain, and you can easily build it if you prefer it to be more intense. I’ve also been reaching for gloss again and my all time favorite formula is from Marc Jacobs. I have one shade– Hey You— and it’s a gorgeous sheer cherry red. The other gloss that has constantly been on my lips is Glossier’s Lip Gloss. It’s literally just a clear gloss, but it’s so beautiful and super glossy. You know… it’s Glossier.

  • I’m about that dewy glow year round, but it does seem extra fitting for spring! Mists are a must have for me as well, and I really want to try the Pixi ones – everyone seems to really like them. For my spring glow I’ve been replying on my IOPE cushion foundation + Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder :)

  • I’m loving the new MAC MSF Blush in Cheeky Bits – very youthful and glowy, and such a beautiful colour!

    Beekeyper – Latest: Lip Liner Loves

  • I am like Jenny, dewy skin all year round because anything matte enhances my dry and mature skin and not in a good way. I am obsessed with Marc Jacobs highlighters now and cream blush from make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette.

  • I need all the glossier in my life, can’t wait till they launch in the Uk so I can try everything!! xx

  • That Milk Holographic stick looks so nice! Can you use it on your eyes too?

  • I’m loving the look of all the highlighters you mentioned. They’re so stunning, especially the Chanel one! I’ve been giving a ton of love to the Benefit High Beam lately. It’s so pretty! Also, I picked up the Milk Face Gloss because you mentioned it in one of your recent posts & have been obsessed! Really digging the glossy lid trend :)

  • I really need to try the holographic stick as it sounds amazing xx

  • I’m loving light but dewy makeup right now too! I need that Milk Holographic Stick – just gorgeous! The Chanel one looks amazing too, though I’m not sure about it with how pale I am. Pretty sure I need some of the Gen G lipsticks, but I really have no business buying more lip products…

  • I’ve been using UFO so much since reading your post and actually think it is quite effective. I really want to get my hands on some of those Pixi mists xxx

    Ooh, the swatch of Genreation G’s Jam and Becca’s liquid highlighter look so nice next to each other! Unfortunately I don’t have either so I can’t do a makeup look using both but I’m super into light makeup right now. Barely anything on my eyes – just a good base (and eyebrows, can’t forget those!).

  • That becca liquid highlighter looks gorgeous :)

  • For me Glossier Moonstone looks like perfect highlighter for this season. Glossier Gen G jam is a lovely shade.

    I’m getting into gloss for probably the first time in my life and the Glossier Gloss is probably #1 on my wish list right now. Everyone keeps talking about how great it is and I can’t wait to get it.
