The cool, winter season often calls for bold makeup looks, festive glitter and a classic red lip to take over our makeup bags. But when Spring rolls around, we often tend to lean towards softer, lighter and more natural looks that reflect the season. Lightweight makeup also becomes key when temperatures rise!
To help you prep for spring – and take away your winter blues, if only for a moment – Get The Look is presenting you with four beauty products that will help you achieve that coveted no-makeup, makeup look come spring. Read on to get inspired on your next shopping trip!
SPRING MAKEUP: NO-MAKEUP MAKEUP PRODUCTS
COLOUR CORRECTING CONCEALER
The no-makeup makeup look is all about avoiding heavy products like foundation and translucent powders. So, how do you cover up redness, blemishes and other unwelcome spots on your skin? Colour correcting concealer, of course! Colour correcting concealers are ideal because you can apply them directly on spots or under eye circles to provide coverage, without all the heavy coverage on the rest of your skin.
If redness is your enemy, try a green colour correcting concealer. If you need to get rid of dark, blue under eye circles, red is your new go-to!
If you're the type of makeup-wearer that can't live without a base product on your skin, swap your heavy foundations for a BB or CC cream come spring. BB creams work the same way that foundation does, but they feel lighter on the skin providing the same amount of coverage. BB creams are perfect for spring, because they won't sweat off when temperatures rise, like foundation would!
Apply your BB cream with a damp makeup sponge to achieve that melted-in look that's oh-so natural!
It may seem like an obvious choice, but if you're looking for no-makeup makeup products to fill your spring makeup collection, lip balm is your new BFF. Lip balms are great because they hydrate your lips while providing a touch of colour to enhance your natural lip colour.
Opt for a balm that matches the undertones in your skin – or your lip colour! If you have pink-y undertones, go for a pink shade to enhance your natural beauty.
That's right, liquid blush is the answer to achieving a more natural flush on your skin during spring. Powder foundations and blush products can often appear cakey when layered on top of the skin. To avoid this look, opt for a liquid blush that you can blend into the skin for a flawless, melted-in appearance.
For an even more natural flush, apply your blush onto your cheeks using a damp beauty sponge BEFORE applying any BB cream. Apply your BB cream on top for a flush that appears to shine right through the skin!
