5 Spring Beauty Tricks to Brighten your Everyday Makeup

By Corinne Sinesi | February 26, 2019 | Style & Beauty

Who says your everyday makeup has to taper off after concealer, mascara, and a dab of lip gloss? In honor of being on the cusp of glorious warm weather, here are five ways to spruce up your cosmetic compilation for the spring.

Dewy Cheeks


Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter, $38,

Becca Cosmetics’ award-winning pressed highlighter applies as if the sun melted that very product into your cheeks. This one-of-a-kind powder combines ultra-fine pearls with liquid to create a creamy finish. The pearls work to reflect and illuminate your natural skin tone, individualizing this highlighter just for you.

Blue Eyeliner


NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner, $26,

Whether you prefer to create wings with liquid liner or smudge your bottom lash lines with a charcoal pencil, substitute heavy black for vibrant blue and give your face a reviving splash of color. The NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner comes in differing budge-proof shades of aqua and navy; find what works best for your skin tone, and give a new meaning to the Monday blues.

Pink Blush


Buxom Wanderlust Primer-Infused Blush, $22,

The most modest way to introduce color into your normal, go-to look is a hot pink blush. Named after popular destinations like Havana, Ibiza and Mykonos, Buxom Wanderlust Primer-Infused Blush gives you a desirable, tropical vacation glow. Plus, the formula is infused with primer, so you don’t have to worry about losing your pink tint throughout the day.

Orange Lips


MAC Cosmetics Lustre Lipstick in Flamingo, $18.50,

MAC Lustre Lipstick is a lightweight formula, creating a sheer finish on the lip. With a color like Flamingo, choosing the lustre lipstick over something more amplified is important to remain office-appropriate while creating a full-lip look and a glossy orange sheen.

Lavender Eyeshadow


Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Intergalactic, $22,

An eye product unlike any other in the Urban Decay Cosmetic lineup, Moondust Eyeshadow feels like cream and applies like powder to the lid. If you’re looking for the perfect accent to an otherwise natural look, the shade “Intergalactic” is an iridescent lavender that brings out the color and sparkle of any eye color without being too dramatic.
