spruce up your beauty routine for spring
Posted on April 21 2017
hey beauties, spring is here! it is officially time to put your parkas and snow boots in storage and take out your light sweaters and flats (and maybe even sandals?). it is also time to update your beauty routine and change up a few products to get you ready for the season.
for a quick and easy pick me up add a fun accent of colour. switch up your dark wine and oxblood polish and lip shades for a brighter hue. try bye felicia by trust fund beauty (the ultimate fuchsia) on your nails and and synch it up with lipstick queen’s cupid’s bow lip pencil in eros for your lips.
with the weather getting slightly warmer, you may notice that your go-to fall/winter scent is getting to be a bit much. it’s time to put your well-loved warm, musky perfume away for a while and try a lighter floral fragrance. we love Gaye Straza’s “hawaii in a bottle” kai, tocca’s bright and girly tulip and apple mix giulietta, and of course the mint-julep goodness fluffy bunny roller ball by farmhouse fresh.
moving on to skin… as the weather is getting warmer you might notice your skin is changing, it is not as dry anymore and you might even feel it is getting oilier and shinier. we know how frustrating it can be when those products you loved only a couple months ago are just not doing it for you anymore. which means it is time to switch your rich and creamy moisturizer for a lighter lotion, this will give your skin just the right dose of hydration. but, if you still need that little extra touch of moisture, keep your cream for the evening and use a lighter lotion for daytime. just don’t forget your spf! we like dermadoctor’s phot dynamic therapy 3-in-1 facial lotion ( with an spf of 30) and fresh’s rose hydration gel cream. same thing applies to your body care, if you love your kai body butter, try the lotion!
and for the final touch… your home! this spring voluspa candles has got you covered with a beautiful selection of bright, fruity and floral scents. perse bloom and mokara for the flower loving gals. nissho soleil and panjore lychee for something fun and fruity. and for those of us who still like a hint of warmth, blanc tabac with hints of perique tabac, vanilla husk and sandalwood is just perfection.
