Brighten Up Your Beauty Routine – 5 Must Have’s for Spring
Spring has sprung but does your skin need a little pick me up? This is the time of year when I find myself longing for sun kissed skin to pull me out of the lingering winter blues. A summer glow may be a little out of reach au naturale, but not impossible to achieve.
It’s easy to get stuck in rut and stick with the same cosmetics and beauty tools that seem to “work”. When was the last time you mixed things up a bit and tried something new? Get out of your comfort zone and add pop to your skin without breaking the bank.
The quickest way to transform your skin? We’ve got 5 Must Have products to the rescue!
Just a few of my favorites this season:
Bobbi Brown Pale Pink Blush (Award Winning!) – ‘Allure’(January 2011)and ‘Glamour’(March 2011)recommend Bobbi’s Pale Pink Blush. I never knew what my cheeks were missing until I found this product. Although it seems extremely bright, once applied it provides just enough pop to brighten my face. It’s fresh and natural without trying too hard.
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care Translucent Bronze Concentrate– I’ve been using this product for almost two years. Mix a few drops with your daily face lotion and transform your skin in minutes. Adding a hint of color helps to minimize the appearance of blemishes and skin imperfections. Perfect when you are short on time!
Sue Devitt Lip Enhancing Gloss – I purchased in Coral Sands a few months ago and could not be happier. I would normally not pick this color on my own but after treating myself to an in-store makeup session, my Sue Devitt consultant showed me how versatile it can be. The color screams “SPRING” but also smooths out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Available in four shades.
Bobbi Brown Foundation Brush – This brush has changed the way I apply my foundation. I personally use with Laura Mercier tinted lotion and it works beautifully. Throw out your sponges ladies and get this brush! A definite must have for smooth, flawless coverage.
Xen Self Tan Bronzer – I’m obsessed with this self tanning product and added it to my MUST HAVE list last year. After reading about my experience, my own mom purchased it online and loves it too. I would not call myself an obsessive tanner, I just like to have a hint of color when my skin has not see the light of day in 6 months. I love that Xen-Tan does not streak, smells like vanilla and is paraben-free. It truly does give me an instant natural glow (no orange tones) and hydrates the skin.
