Refresh your beauty cabinet this season with some spring makeup buys. As we head into spring and summer, stock up on products with lighter formulas and embrace new seasonal colour palettes. You don’t have to replace everything in your makeup bag, but a few changes here and there can make all the difference. Freshen up your beauty cabinet with these spring makeup buys.
1. Rimmel London 9-in-1 BB Cream
When it comes to spring makeup buys, ditch the heavy foundation of winter and opt for a sheerer formula this season. BB creams are all the rage and are perfect for providing lighter coverage for spring. This multi-tasking BB cream by Rimmel London evens out your skin tone, moisturises, and absorbs excess oil.
2. Pacifica Lip Tint
Add a hint of colour to your lips with a lip tint this spring. Try Pacifica’s range of lip tints which you can buy from Target for $6.99. The tubes are pretty generous in size and the packaging is super cute to boot. There are five different colours in the range and the lip tints are all petroleum-free.
3. Topshop Blush in Afternoon Tea
Fake your way to rosy, flushed cheeks with this pink blush from Topshop. It’s a cream to powder formula that melts onto the skin, leaving you with radiant and luminous cheeks. Smile and apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks for a natural looking glow.
4. Benefit Fine One Highlighter
Highlighters are great for brightening up your face. This one by Benefit is designed to be used on your cheeks and lips. It features three different shades that combine to create a coral pink flush. Build it up to create a bright and cheery look or try layering it with other products. Benefit Cosmetics are known to be on the pricier side and this highlighter will set you back $30 from Sephora.
5. Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint
First Clinique released their Chubby Sticks for lips, and now we’ve got Chubby Sticks for eyes. Basically it’s a stick shadow for your eyes. Simply apply it directly to your eyelids for a wash of sheer, shimmery colour. Blend the colour in gently and either build up colour or layer for intensity. There are a range of colours on offer from light beige to deep olive green.
6. L’Oreal Super-Blendable Concealer Crayon
Hmm, so it seems I might have a fascination with makeup products shaped like crayons. These concealer crayons from L’Oreal offer customisable coverage and can be used on small spots to larger imperfections, like under eye circles. To cover small imperfections, apply the crayon point to your skin. For broader application, glide the side of the crayon against your skin and blend in.
7. Sephora by OPI Nail Polish
Applying a new coat of nail polish is an easy way to stay on top of seasonal colour trends. Embrace pastels this spring with a sweet lilac shade, like this one from Sephora by OPI called ‘Hippo to be Square.’ There are also many more shades in the collection, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.
These are just a few products to shake up your makeup bag this spring. From lightweight foundations to sheer pops of colour, it’s all about taking a fresh approach to makeup this spring. What makeup will you be buying this spring?
