5 Makeup Bag Must Haves for Spring!
If you’re like me and live in the South… it has felt like Spring for a month or two now. If you don’t and you’re saying to yourself, “Alexa… there is literally a scene from Frozen outside my window right now..” humor me and pretend you’re feeling the heat. With so many new products for Spring & Summer gracing the shelves of your favorite beauty store it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed. Today I’m sharing with you the top five products you can find in my makeup bag and why you absolutely need them in yours.
Would you believe me if I told you I used to never use primer? I never fully understood the magic behind a makeup primer until I started using a great one and let me tell you… this is something you absolutely need in your makeup bag. Great makeup starts with your skin & if it isn’t properly primed, you’ll find your makeup lacking. Whether you find a drugstore one that not only you love, but your wallet does too or you go out & buy the best on the market… you need a go to primer in your makeup bag for Spring.
This is a biggie for me. Not only will this make the rest of your makeup look better, but you’ll feel more comfortable as well. For my skin type, I really love a matte finish foundation. I’ve been able to find formulas that are both drugstore and high end that I know will not only look great, but feel great on warmer days as well.
Whether you’re contouring or giving your face a little bit of a glow, bronzer is definitely one of my go to’s. Not only can it give your face more structure, but it can also help you get a sunkissed glow without ever having your skin see the sun. If you are a little bit on the pale side, I would definitely experiment with finding your perfect shade and avoid a formula with a lot of glitter.
A Bulletproof Blending Brush
I just want to take a moment of silence for all of the Instagram pictures of seen with poorly blended makeup. OKAY. Now that we have that out of the way… MAKE SURE YOU GET YOURSELF A GREAT BLENDING BRUSH. Not only for your eyes but for your face as well. This doesn’t have to be expensive and it can be a huge game changer for your makeup. If your hand is hurting, you haven’t blended enough. Now go forth & blend, blend, blend.
This is coming from the queen of lazy makeup herself… you need a liquid lipstick in your life. I am a lover of everything makeup but when it comes to reapplying, I hate it. I want a lipstick that I can throw on before I leave and have it last most of the time while requiring one reapplication max. You work hard, so why shouldn’t your lipstick? If that isn’t a motto to live by… I don’t know what is.
Now that I’ve spilled the beans on my must haves… what are yours?
