That means it's time to switch up your normal skin care and makeup routine, and it isn't as complicated as you may have thought!
Apart from washing your face twice a day, you should exfoliate your face with a scrub or face mask (no more than) twice a week until your skin begins to be less dry and more moisturized; then exfoliate once a week. Remember, do not scrub your face hard, this causes tears which can cause pores to look larger and for skin to age quicker.
Moisturizers are also a major part of soft glowing spring and summer skin! You can chose whatever kind you'd like, though I recommend using something that isn't to heavy and oily.
Foundation is one of the first things that people think of when it comes to makeup, and I'm definitely not telling you stop using it. However, replacing your makeup with a tinted moisturizer is ideal for a fresh "makeup free" look.
Tinted moisturizer works fairly well for most people, but if you need more coverage to hide acne scars or other blemishes, you can always mix your regular foundation with some moisturizing lotion - this is also a great way to save money!
Enhance Your Eyes
Spring is most recognized for it's bright colors that pop! Your eyelids are the perfect spot for color. You can pick from your favorite shades, like light pinks, blues, oranges, greens, purples and yellows! (the chart below can help you determine what color will look best)
Another way to make your eyes pop is cutting back on eyeliner and just using mascara.
If you already have pink cheeks, enjoy them! If you don't have naturally flushed cheeks, pick an innocent pink, mild pink or a peach color.
Using a light shimmering highlighter on the apples of your cheeks can make your skin look even more radiant.
Just remember to blend. This is the most important thing when it comes to brightly colored cheeks - you want them to look as natural as possible.
From glossy to matte lips, bright colors are in! However if you chose bright lips, maybe forego the bright eyeshadow - we don't want the look to become overly bright.
Emma Stone's makeup is an example of the perfect spring look.
Light to bold pinks are the best, as well as peach and orange colors.
As mentioned with the blush - illuminizers are your friend, and the best way to get a natural, non-fake looking glow (so long as you don't overdo it). Apply the illuminizer where the sun hits your face naturally- forehead, apples of the cheeks, chin.
Also apply a little illuminzer to your collarbones and shoulders for an all over glow.
Last but not least, remember to use your sunscreen. No matter how dark you are, you can still damage your skin by being in the sun (yes, even if you don't get burned) which will cause your skin to age much more quickly.
Enjoy your Spring and get ready for the wonderful Summer!
