Now that we are fully into spring and summer is soon arriving I have my current go to products that I have been using everyday. When the weather gets warmer I like to make small new editions to my beauty routine. Nothing feels more like warmer weather to me then the combination of glowing skin, gold accents, and floral and citrus scents!
When the weather warms up I don’t know about you but I cannot stand the feeling of a foundation sliding off of my face. For the last few years my go to tinted moisturizer has been the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20. It is super light weight, light to medium coverage, and offers the perfect natural glow to your skin. I top mine off with some concealer and a little setting powder and I am good to go all day!
For a little extra glow I apply bronzer to the typical areas of my face where the sun would naturally hit. My forehead, cheekbones and jawline. My favorite bronzer to use is the Lorac Tantalizer Baked Bronzer. This bronzer is described as luminous and looks amazing in the sunlight.
Next, I apply Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in nude and gold. I love applying a nude (In the Buff) or gold (Mari(Gold)) eyeliner shade close to my lash line or on my waterline. These shades add an unexpected sparkle and extra glow.
Finally I apply a nude or pink lipgloss shade. My favorite for the last few years has been Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss – Bare Sparkle. This can be worn alone or over top of any gloss and looks amazing! I absolutely Love it! I have also been loving the Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Gloss – Tawny Pink and Sugar Pink. They smell like vanilla, are opaque enough to wear alone, and last for hours!
I also like to change up my perfumes and body spray when the weathers warmer. My ABSOLUTE favorite for the spring and summer this year is the Tom Ford Neroli Portofino! This scent is summer in a bottle to me. It’s floral undertones include Tunisian neroli, Italian bergamot, Sicilian lemon, winter yellow mandarin, lavender. It is perfect! Not too heavy and lingers all day.
For a summer night I am enjoying the popular Tom Ford Soleil Blanc. It smells more of amber undertones and is a little heavier than the portofino but still smells great. This is a great scent to transition into summer and will remind you of summer nights as soon as you smell it!
I would love to know what are you spring beauty favorites?
