Spring Makeup Must Haves

Every spring I always re-do my makeup routine for the warmer weather. In the colder months I tend to wear a bit more makeup (more for me anyway) but in the warmer weather I opt for a very natural face.

Today I wanted to share with you all my every day spring makeup must haves that help me achieve this!

The first thing I use is this Ponds correcting cream. I’ll put this on and use it as a facial moisturizer before I put my makeup on. I was a bit hesitant about this at first as I have super sensitive skin, but this hasn’t broken my face out at all! I bought the travel size product, but will definitely by the full size soon!

Next I put on this Wet n’ Wild concealer for dark spots. This is what I use for eye concealer and it works great! I have some darker under eyes and once this is on it hides them. I paid a little over $5 I think, but it is worth it!

If I have any other little spots that I want to give a little extra coverage I use the L’oreal infallible pro-glow concealer.

After the concealer I use this, now this doesn’t give a complete “covers every single thing” coverage, but more of a sheer coverage. I love it and use it for warmer weather since in the warmer months I’m not too worried about covering everything up.

For mascara I use just a little bit of this Eyeko lash alert. This trial size came in an Ipsy bag, but I’ll definitely buy it when this runs out!

So all winter long I’ve struggled with split and cracked lips. A co-worker told me to go out and buy this Nivea creme and put it on my lips to help moisturize them…..and it works so well! I’m still using this and love it!

I’m not being sponsored by any means for these products…this is simply me letting you all know what I use and how I use it.

Beauty DIY Day 2

Okay so this beauty DIY is one I’ve actually used quite a bit and like. I haven’t used this tip a lot, but I need to start using it again. Like the last DIY this one is very simple, but this time this one only uses two things:

Your favorite shampoo

About 1 teaspoon baking soda

That’s it. Pretty simple, right?

My hair does this weird thing where it’ll go months without getting too oily too quickly, and then go months where my hair is oily almost every day. So when that happens I use this simple and easy beauty DIY.

After you wet your hair put some shampoo in one hand, and mix in about 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix the shampoo and baking soda together in your hand and apply to your hair. Rinse all this off and voila! Hello oil free hair!

Baking soda helps give your shampoo that little oomph when it comes to cleaning your hair, and it doesn’t add any chemicals to it. The baking soda works as a natural oil fighter. Isn’t that awesome?

I would recommend doing this about once a week. I tried doing this twice a week, but it dried out my hair a bit too much. So if you’re like me and fighting oily hair, give this a try and let me know how it goes!
