Brush Up: Did you know you need to clean your makeup brushes at least ONCE a Month! Seriously you do, and if you haven\’t shame on you.
• side note: here is how I clean my brushes I squirt a small amount of shampoo in a cup (baby shampoo works best, but any \”high-end\” shampoo – bedhead etc will work also) fill with warm water and dip my brushes in and then take out and work my fingers into the brush so that they are clean thoroughly. I rinse them with luke warm water and place on a towel to dry.
That\’s so last year: Have sunscreen or products with SPF in them that are over a year old? Toss them. When sunscreen goes bad it makes you susceptible to getting burnt and also leaves your skin vulnerable. This could lead to sunspots, cancer, wrinkles and all the things you should avoid.
• side note: Usually you can tell when your makeup has gone bad because the color, smell or consistency will change. Mineral makeup usually doesn\’t go bad.
Oil Spill: While thick creams work in the winter they are just not what you want on your face during the summer. Unless clogged pores are your thing. During spring you should try an oil-free product that is light weight, moisturizes and won\’t cause break outs.
• side note my favorites include: bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer or Dermalogica Barrier Repair
A natural glow: Lady Gaga says \”I was born this way\”, and she\’s right we are all gorgeous so why not embrace your beauty. Lighten up your load when it comes to foundation, eye shadow and blush this season.
Pop!: Straight from the runway to you it\’s time to give your lips an electric pop this season. Search for bold colors to pamper your pout. Definitely invest in a peach, mango or tangerine shade as well as a pink or coral.
xo what is your spring beauty routine?
