Spring Makeup Essentials


Happy first day of spring! Winter is officially over and I'm sure I'm not that only one who is glad about that!

Today I'm going to share some of my makeup items that remind me of spring time! When I think of spring, I think of bright and pastel colors, flowers, pink, yellows, lilac, etc. 


For eyeshadows I picked the Maybelline Brights Palette because of all the bright colors. It reminds me of spring time! I haven't had a chance to play with this one too much, but look out for some spring makeup looks from me using this soon! I also included the little pixi eyshadow duo that came in my ipsy bag. The packaging is so cute and the mint green color of it is so springy too!

Sticking with the eyes category, here's two eye pencils that are good colors for spring. The first one is the Jordana liquid eyeliner pencil in the color Aqua Stone. This color of beautiful and so fun to wear on the lower lash line. Next is a Hello Kitty Shadow stick from Sephora in the color Cream Puff. I love the lilac color for spring and this makes a great eyeshadow base for purples. Plus it's hello kitty. I love hello kitty. 

Next is a Tarte lipstick in the shade Plummy Rose. I mainly picked this because of the packaging lol! It's flower detail is so pretty, and this is a good lipstick shade that you can wear year around. 

Last I'm going to talk about cheek products.
The top left is a Milani Rose Powder Blush in the color Flora Passion. How perfect is this blush for spring? It's flower detailing is so pretty and Milani blushes are one of my favorites from the drugstore. 
Next to it (top right) is the Nars Blush in New Order. This blush is so gorgeous, it's a light purple shade and this post wouldn't be complete unless I included a Nars blush because they are my favorite. You can see I hit pan on this so it's well loved. You wouldn't think a purple sparkly blush would look good but I promise it's not as scary as it looks!
The first on the bottom is the Stila Shimmer Duo in Kitten. I picked this for my spring highlight because it's so pretty and subtle if your not ready for that intense glow that we usually go for in the summer time. The pink side in my favorite and this can be used for an eyeshadow duo as well!
Last on the bottom right is the Physicans Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural. I've already talked and raved about this so much on my blog, but I had to include in because it's a perfect spring color!

What are your Spring Makeup Essentials? Let me know in the comments!!
Also I'm going to have a new post series starting this Sunday so be excited!!

  1. Ohh hell no to Hello Kitty, you and me are on the complete opposite about that darn pussy cat! LMAO! Gosh, I can't stand Hello Kitty and it's like everyfreakingwhere in Asia. Smdh. LOL!

    I love this post, Ashley despite Hello Kitty making an appearance because I have no idea what Spring looks, feels like, no idea about the makeup or fashion so I appreciate any post that helps me understand it more.

    ps: Hope you're feeling much better and have a lovely weekend! xx

  2. I'm so happy that Spring is here, but kinda sad that I didn't wear my dark lipsticks as much. However, I'll be getting more Spring appropriate lipsticks, so it's not so bad. I never thought about the Brights being good for a "spring" look, but you are right. For spring, I like blush more than any other season to give me that rosy look :) Nyx blush never lets me down :)

  7. I love how brightly colored everything is! I bought two tarte lipsticks recently and I really like the formula, Plummy Rose might be the next one hehe. New Order looks so intimidating in pan and I can't imagine putting a sparkly purple on my cheeks, but I'll have to swatch it sometime to see what the deal about that one is!

  9. I want to collect all of those Milani blushes! HaHaHa They're so pretty and have great pigmentation. I just purchased some Tarte lipsticks. The packaging IS cute. I think the packaging may be better than the lipstick. HAHAHAHA
