Spring is not only my birthday season, but my favorite season above all others. The reawakening of the Earth gets me every single year as if it’s a surprise. You would think I’d be used to it know since I’ve experienced this season for 22 years (as of April 1!) already, but no. From the birds singing to the flowers peaking, this blooming beauty captures me each time it comes around. What puts the cherry on top of this being my favorite season ever? The gorgeous spring beauty collections that make their appearance! Adorned in light pastels to everyday neutrals, the spring collections from some of my favorite or newly discovered beauty brands are blowing my brain like no other, not to mention the eye-capturing swatches that come from the stunning lip shades created! You’ll fall in love with these collections just as much as you will with this season, just as I do every year. Did anyone say spring cleaning? Make room for these beauty bits in your makeup collection, and be out with the old!
