Spring is here! Kind of. I know some people are venturing back outside while some are still being cautious and staying put inside. Whether you’re inside or outside you can still participate in some trending Spring trends! Check out these and let me know which ones you are going to try.

Press on Nails

These aren’t your grandma or mom’s press on’s! Press on nails have really stepped their game up.  These are a great way to try out summer nail trends of neon and design without making a big commitment. You also don’t have to go into a nail salon to achieve this look. You can go to your local drugstore or support local nail techs by purchasing custom press on nail sets! The sets featured below are from two local nail tech artist Dearra Hill and Chani Johnson.

Spring Lip

Bright colors are back on trend. Swap out your usual nude, pink or red and try a bright orange, purple or neon pink. You don’t have to make a huge investment in a new lipstick either, I found some hot summer lipsticks all under $5 at my local drugstore.

Wet n Wild Lip Color, Honolulu Is Calling

OKAY! Online this is only $1.19!! I paid a little more in store I think around $3 dollars, but this is still a great deal. The lipstick comes in a tube and applies that regular tube lipsticks. My lips were moisturized and the color orange was very pigmented but not overpowering. It also removes great too ladies! 

CoverGirl Colorlicious Melting Pout Lipstick, Gel-Ful

This beauty was only $4.99!! I got it on sale in store but it’s still only $7.99.  It comes out of a tube with gel like consistency. It is very smooth and easy to apply. My lips felt very moisturized and not dry. I also liked that it was very easy to take off. 

Summer Lip Colors

Makeup Great For Your Skin

Springtime means warmer weather, so you don’t have to wear as much makeup. Sweating while wearing makeup is not great for our skin so swap out the full coverage foundations for a great tinted moisturizer that has a SPF or an “Clean” Foundation that is lightweight and won’t clog your pores. Everyone should be wearing sunscreen year around and not just during the summer. Sunscreen should even be worn when people are working from home and should be reapplied when out in the sun.

Tinted Moisturizer: Nars Skin Tint SPF 30

Nars Tinted Moisturizer

This is a lightweight tinted buildable moisturizer/foundation that has a broad-spectrum SPF 30 already built in. It helps your skin’s overall condition and will leave your skin looking natural and glowing.
