Spring is slowly becoming my favorite season and with every new season comes falling in love with new items and back in love with old ones. Here is my spring edit with my favorite skincare, makeup, fashion, and lifestyle favorites!
Face masks are something I go back and forth with using, but a few weeks ago I picked up this clay mask that I’ve really loved using. Although I wouldn’t say it has magically made my pores disappear, it does seem to make them less noticeable. And my face always feels extremely clean after using it. I use this 2 times a week at night.
I’ve always been a bit skeptical on if facial oils really work. But after trying this one from Botanics I’m 100% in love with them! I use this one every night before bed and it works wonders at hydrating my skin + it hasn’t broken my skin out which is a plus.
Mario Badescu is a skincare brand that I’ve wanted to try for ages, so this spring I finally did just that. Their enzyme gel cleanser is one of the best cleansers I have ever used. I use this every day in the mornings and it glides on my skin like a dream + the smell is really lovely.
One of the main staples in my skincare routine is always an exfoliant and this one from Mario Badescu has quickly become one of my favorites. I use this a few times a week on my t-zone area + chin, and it’s perfect at smoothing out my skin’s texture.
Every time the warmer weather comes around I start to wear less and less face makeup. The past few months I’ve only been using the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer and it gives the right amount of coverage without feeling too heavy.
I usually prefer more neutral to cool tone eyeshadow shades, but this spring I’ve been embracing more warm neutral shades. The eyeshadow palette I’ve been reaching for more and more is the Tartelette in Bloom palette by Tarte. It has a great mix of shimmery and matte neutral shades. My favorite shades from the palette are rocker, jetsetter, smarty pants, and leader.
The everyday lipstick shade I have been wearing for spring has been any peachy-pink nude color. It is the perfect color that’s just a little bit bolder than my lip color. This one from Colourpop is my favorite, although they sadly don’t sell it anymore.
For bolder spring days or evenings warm toned reds are my color of choice. This one from Lily Lolo is all natural and it feels like you’re wearing chapstick.
Midi dresses have become the one type of dress I look for whenever I’m online shopping. There’s just something so nice about having the feeling of wearing a dress without having to worry too much about the wind. This polka dot one is from ASOS, and some of my other favorite ones in my closet are from Target.
Jumpsuits are something I only started wearing last spring + summer, and they are still a favorite of mine this year too! I love being able to throw one on with a top and have a complete outfit that I can move around comfortably in. This tied jumpsuit is from my online clothing boutique, and ASOS + Uniqlo are two of my other favorite places to shop for them!
Bandanas have become a staple in all of my outfits. I often have to stop myself from adding one to every outfit I wear. They are the perfect accessory to tie around your neck for an extra pop of color or detail.
This is something I have only recently started doing, but I’ve started keeping a notebook of all my favorite quotes + words of advice that I find online, in movies, or anywhere in life. This way, whenever I need a little motivation or reminder, I have it all in one place.
The sunshine that spring has brought has honestly done wonders to my mood. I find myself wanting to spend as much time as possible outside, so I’ve been doing just that! Three times a week I’ll go for a long walk around a lake near where I live, and the other days I spend as much time as I can outside. My goal is to explore new places around me and to soak up as much sunshine before it gets too hot.
