Springtime Beauty

One of spring and summer's biggest perks has got to be the *healthy* sun-kissed glow your skin gets as you spend more time outside. Something about a glowing complexion eases the need for loads of heavy product and you can really downsize your make-up bag and the time spent in front of the mirror. 

If you're looking for a few good spring and summer beauty products, look no further. These lightweight but high-impact products below are sure to help you look your day and by night!

***For day:*** 
-Start by applying tinted moisturizer and concealer if you need it. 
-Add highlighter along your brow bone, the inside corner of your eyes and inside your lower lid to make your eyes look brighter. 
-Swipe two coats of black mascara along your upper and lower lashes. (Sorry, I'm a mascara horse.)
-Use a large brush to add blush on the apples of your cheeks and swoop upward toward your temples. 
-Complete the look with bright lipstick. If it looks too heavy, blot it lightly once and reapply as necessary throughout the day. 

***Into night:***
-Layer on cream eyeshadow for not only glamorous shimmer but also some serious staying power. 
-Line your upper lids and inside the lid with black gel eyeliner. 
-Refresh your facial flush while adding a little more highlight to your cheeks with a light swipe from the Shimmer Brick.
-Reapply your lipstick...all. night. long.

When you're a make-up junkie like me, it's so easy to get sucked into every trend or want to try out tons of products. But, though it's a tough lesson to learn, sometimes simpler is better. Do you have any good make-up tips for spring and summer?
