Although there may still be a thin layer of frost on my windshield each morning-I refuse to allow these chilly winds to triumph my springtime rituals-especially when it comes to my beauty routine! Regardless of the crisp air outside, spring is officially here and I am so thrilled to be sharing my current favourite beauty products for the season.
Subtle and Stunning
The catwalk trends this spring have been minimal yet impacting. From glossy lids to feathered brows, these natural and effortless looks are everything but boring.
One of my spring staple products that you will find in both my personal collection and my professional kit is MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream. This ultra lightweight formula has pearl reflecting particles which adds a beautiful, natural glow to the skin. Whether it is worn alone or mixed into foundation, this cream will provide ultimate luminosity and radiance.
Pro tip: if you are heading to an event and your legs, shoulders or decolletage are exposed, apply this to the high points of those areas for a sexy glow.
Having fair skin was often a challenge for myself when it came to the cosmetic industry-up until I discovered my holy grail–Chanel’s Tan De Soleil. This cream bronzer is perfect for daily wear-and skill factor is not a concern as it blends perfectly over bare skin or foundation. I love adding this to the perimeter of my face to achieve a sun-kissed, bronzed finish.
Beaming from Within
While 2017 may have been the year for the disco ball, mirror in the sunlight type of highlight, the runway trend of a fresh and radiant glow is a trend that I am living for! Now don’t get me wrong-I still love a beaming highlight every now and then; however, this spring I am all about the healthy glow.
My favourite way to apply my highlighter for a natural glow is to mist my brush with a facial spray and then sweep the product across the area without lifting the brush. This technique will press and melt the product into the skin, giving it a skin-like finish.
This season, hued tones are set to be everywhere in the beauty world. These backstage trends have inspired me to experiment with various colours and finishes of lipsticks, and after doing so, I can see why this trend will be here for a while! As I have spent some time searching for the perfect muted rosy, nude-I have mastered my everyday lip combination for spring!
First, I apply MAC Cosmetics “Faux” lipstick (a gorgeous mauve tone), then I top it off with Laura Mercier’s “Bare Baby” lipgloss which is the most stunning high-shine baby pink you’ve ever seen! These shades paired together are perfect for the office or school because they are subtle enough to pair with anything you wear, yet the beautiful rose hue still allows you to participate in the trend.
