In My Spring Beauty Bag

Spring beauty bag 5

I love nothing more than the fresh excitement of new (and highly recommended) beauty products, so I’ve been on the lookout for my spring favorites to share with you.  After much deliberation (and trying gazillions of different things), I’ve narrowed them down to my favorites and am so excited to share them with you.

In Springtime, all I want is glowing skin.  I’m finished with the drab pastiness of winter, and I’m ready to get my glow on.  These products all help achieve that look.  This is what I use on a daily basis these days, and I’m pretty thrilled with the results.

To begin with, I always spritz my skin with Tatcha Luminous Skin Mist.  It hydrates my skin and gets the glow going.  Then I prime my skin with Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl.  Wow, does that stuff pack a punch.  It gets your skin on high shine mode, ready for your foundation.  I then use Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation.  It gives great color (with a touch of shimmer), while letting your natural skin shine through.

Next, as always, I use my all-time favorite concealer, Burberry Cashmere Concealer.  Then for the piéce de resistence– the best bronzing, highlighting, and blush compact I’ve ever found.  It’s By Terry Sun Designer Palette 2 (Light and Tan Vibes).  I brush the Bobbi Brown Bronzer Brush over the bronzer side of the compact and give my skin a few generous swipes.  Then I brush the Bobbi Brown Blush Brush over the highlighter/blush/bronzer side of the compact and glide it over my cheekbones.  I adore the way this combination lights the skin.  The blush is a gorgeous pink/peach shade, and the highlighter and bronzer add just the right glow to my skin (without requiring a 12-step process– who has time for that??)

Finally, on to eyes with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil and my forever favorite Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara.  And I nearly forgot the best eyelash curler I’ve ever laid my hands on (and I’ve tried a bunch).  The Surratt eyelash curler is at a different angle than the usual eyelash curler, and man, does it make a difference!!

Finally, my favorite lip glosses these days: Buxom’s Bellini and Chantecaille’s Modern.  They are easy nude-ish colors that go with everything.  And I keep coming back to them.

There you have it!  My spring beauty favorites.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
