Lipstick Shades for a Perfect Spring Look


Spring has sprung and we’ve never been more ready to say goodbye to this year’s unbearably cold winter! While our skin and hair are begging to be warmed up by the sun’s rays and blown out by our hairdresser, we can’t help but daydream about all the colorful lipstick shades to wear. We know there’s a ton of lippies out there, so we’ve listed our favorites for you. It’s time to trade your dark lipsticks for these neutral and bright lipstick shades, perfect for a Spring look.

NYX’s Extra Creamy Round Lipstick ($4) is velvety, long-lasting, moisturizing, and affordable all in one. Can it get any better? This Narcissus clean blue-toned pink cream shade is perfect for the first day of warmer weather.

Celebrate PANTONE’s Color of the Year with Butter London’s Lippy Liquid Lipstick (we dare you to say that 10 times fast) in Ultra Violet ($18)! With a pigment of a lipstick and a shine of a lip gloss, your lips will look and feel like a million bucks. It’s not your typical lipstick color, but that’s why we love it.

You can never go wrong with a classic red lip, no matter what season! Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49) provides moisture, comfort, and shine while adding a pop of color to your laid-back or dressy outfit.

Neutral shades are every girl’s best friend, am I right? Smashbox’s Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick ($24) lasts for a solid 8 hours, is lightweight, and conditions your lips while delivering a flawless finish! You won’t want to go the Spring without this gorgeous lippy, trust us!

What’s New in Makeup: Stila Cosmetics Spring 2018


Nothing gets me more excited than new beauty bits, especially when they are products that will live up to any type of hype. Made by one of my favorite brands and a part of their own latest collection, Stila Cosmetics has launched their Spring 2018 Bohemian Beauty Collection filled with glitter, glow, and everything nice. Taking on an eclectic and artistic approach while remaining free-spirited, this line is made for everyone who loves playing with makeup, even on your days off. Stila has come out with a total of 45 products consisting of liquid lipsticks, eyeliners, liquid top coats, and my two favorites, liquid eye shadows and highlighters. This line is perfect for a transitional spring look that is ready to defrost any winter blues.

Stila’s Liquid Eye Shadows have continuously dazzled the eyes of people who apply and admire them. Their Shimmer & Glow versions for Spring 2018 do not fall short in that department either. They are formulated the same as the original Glitter & Glow, but they have a smaller particle pearl to create a high impact of shimmering pigment; even with this change, they recall our love for the one that started it all with a refreshing take. It’s that radiating glitter style without the glitter!

Their Bohemian Trend Shades contain three Shimmer & Glow versions along with three Glitter & Glow ones, providing a perfect balance for anyone who wants to pair them and go freestyle. With shades of gold, aqua, and lilac, your eyes will be blooming in color.

The Glitter & Glow Highlighters hit every detail their name says they are—glitter and glow. What else can you ask for? This breakthrough formula contains a multi-color mix of pearl and glitter in a sheer, water-infused base to a provide a smooth and effortless wash of sparkle to your skin. Every time I apply this to my cheekbones, tip of my nose, upper lip, and brow bone I instantly feel like an ethereal pixie ready to help spread the new season.

The Best Foundations for Spring


With the last of the frost melting away and the buds from the first flowers sprouting, the transition from winter to spring is officially in the works. Thank you, mother nature! It’s been a long and snow-filled winter for us on the East Coast, so as the weather begins to warm up, we’re happy to do the same. Not only are we bringing out our warmer weather wardrobe, but also our favorite beauty products made to be bright and full of light.
First on our list is none other than an important base to all our makeup needs (well, besides primer) — foundation. It’s safe to say that we’ve all been rocking that pale/light skin tone throughout the winter, and now it’s time to amp up our color for the spring without looking over-baked or unnatural. How do you do this? Just kick your winter shade up one or two notches. This will give your skin a natural glow that blends in beautifully with these upcoming warmer months. Just be sure to blend, blend, and blend some more.
Here are the best foundations for spring. Check them out for yourself in a shade that will compliment you beautifully. Remember your blenders, gals!
