I’m honestly starting to feel like Spring is a myth; a figment of my imagination that will never come to fruition. The date is March 31, and there is still snow on the ground. Every time the snow melts mother nature decides we need more and gives us a few more inches. I’m so sick of it. At this rate we’re going to have snow in July. If anyone wants to take me on an all expenses paid trip to a tropical island, I would really appreciate it.
I’m trying to channel spring by burning floral scented candles and buying fresh flowers to keep in my room. It’s kind of working, although every time I look out my window reality hits me in the face and I remember that I am stuck in a perpetual winter. Another way I’m channeling spring and the warmer weather is by changing up my makeup! I’ve been playing with more pink and purple eyeshadows, applying lots of highlight (although that’s a year round thing, let’s be honest) and wearing bright lipsticks. As I’ve switched up my makeup I’ve found some really great products that I fell in love with throughout the month of March. So, without further ado, let’s get into my March favorites.
My first favorite is the gorgeous new Too Faced Natural Love palette. I did a whole review of this beauty, so I won’t ramble on too much about it. The shades a perfect for spring, they blend beautifully, and there is the perfect amount of matte, shimmer, and glittery shadows.
A lot of people love the St. Tropez self tanner, and for good reason! This stuff blew me away the first time I used it. It goes on evenly (I applied it with just my hands, no mit), doesn’t smell too strongly of chemicals, and dries very quickly. You don’t have to worry about this staining your clothes or anything like that. I also like that you can choose how deep you’d like the tan to be by choose when to shower. 1 hour is a light tan, 2 is a medium tan, and 3 or more hours is a dark tan.
I also did a post about these Milani lipsticks, so if you’re curious you can read that review by clicking here. These lipsticks last all day, are incredibly comfortable and pigmented, and smell like vanilla! The two shades I have are Blushing Beauty and Matte Blissful, and they’re both lovely shades for the spring.
I can’t get enough of this Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer! The color is perfect for my light skin and it gives my skin a healthy and natural looking glow. The bronzer is so smooth and applies to the skin like a dream. It also smells like coconut and suntan lotion, which is a major bonus in my opinion. It’s hypoallergenic, paraben free, non-comedogenic, cruelty free, and oil free so there’s a lot of great things going for this little guy. I can’t recommend this bronzer enough!
Last but not least is MAC’s Soft & Gentle highlighter. This was my first MAC purchase so I am babying this thing like no other. I compared it to e.l.f.’s Blush Gems highlighter, and even though the two are very similar I still love this product. Something about owning and using a MAC product makes me really happy. Probably because it’s a brand everyone talks about and covets in the beauty world, and finally owning a product from them is like joining some special club. Or that’s me just being crazy…either way I love using this highlighter to achieve that perfect glow!
So there you have it, another favorites post! Here’s to April and the weather (hopefully) feeling like spring. If you tried any new products recently that you love, let me know in the comments below! I’m also looking for new things to try out.
