Spring Beauty Favorites

03/01/2017 6 Comments

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Since it’s March 1st, it’s spring right?! After experiencing some beautiful weather in New Orleans, I’m ready for spring like weather every day. I thought I’d share some of my favorite spring time beauty products I love right now, plus they all travel well too!

But first I would like to announce the two winners of my blogiversary giveaway.

Fern H. & Kaite O. 

I emailed you ladies this morning! Thank you to all those that celebrated with me 🙂

Lacome Blush

Lancôme’s Oil Free Subtil Blush in Rose Fresque is my favorite blush out of all the blushes I’ve tried. This blush goes on seamlessly and stays on from morning until night. The rose color reminds me of spring because its the perfect light pink without being too dramatic. I always aim for my makeup to look fresh and light and this blush definitely helps achieve that goal.

Bite Beauty Lipstick

I know I’ve already professed my love for Bite Beauty’s lip products, but their new Perfect Pair lip set colors scream spring to me. Bite products are the only lip products I’ve worn where they actually stay on and the color stays vibrant for hours and hours. I also love how they always do a duo set each season because why not get two lipsticks for the price of one!

NARS Highlighter

I’ve been mixing this highlighter with my Clinique foundation for more than a year now and I love the way it elevates my foundation. However, I think its the perfect product to add a little glow to your skin for the new season in the way that it’s intended. I know I need a little boost after a pasty winter (seriously end of February is rough) and if you swipe this above your cheeks it’ll instantly brighten your face.

Clinique Eye Shadow

Clinique All About Shadow‘s Going Steady has a great combination of pinks and purples, which I tend to stick too since I have brown eyes. Other eye colors would pop too with these vibrant and feminine hues. There is just something about light pinks and purples that reminds me of spring time. These eyeshadows also stay on for the better part of the day too.

Dr. Jart Charcoal Sheet Mask

This charcoal sheet mask is hands down my favorite mask to use each week lately. It feels so rejuvenating when I have it on for 10 mins and really absorbs everything in my pores. I take it off feeling refreshed and my face feels so smooth. If you haven’t tried a charcoal mask then I suggest this one since it’s a sheet mask and you don’t have to make a mess putting it on and taking it off.

What’s your favorite spring beauty product right now!?


I’ll see everyone on Friday for my favorites of the week. I bet you can’t guess what the first one will be! 😉
