Easy ways to change up your makeup routine for Spring
Spring is just around the corner and it’s all about the new beginnings. There’s no better way to get into the season than with a fresh new makeup routine. Now is the time to put away those heavy foundations, dark lipsticks and black eyeliners and start reaching for bright, colourful hues. It’s also the perfect time to re-evaluate your current makeup collection. While in the cold winter months, we tend to opt for thicker, deeper textures, spring is the perfect time to try lighter shades. Spring cleaning doesn’t always have to be for your wardrobe, it can be your makeup collection too.
The winter drab is almost over, which means it’s time to brighten up your look. An eyeshadow palette is the easiest way to draw attention to your eyes without a lot of fuss. The Catrice x Eman Eyeshadow palette features 9 wearable every day neutral shades in an array of finishes. With its cream to powder formula, these highly pigmented shades can easily take you from work to play. From gold, nudes, bronze, rust, this palette will leave your eyes illuminated in seconds. Each shade blends into one another seamlessly and creates an array of stunning airy effects in matte to pearl finishes. It retails for $14.99.
Can’t decide on a blush shade this spring, pick up the Catrice X Eman Blush Palette. No matter your skintone, all 4 shades are universal, ensuring they look stunning on you. This palette combines complementary shades to help you achieve a soft and radiant glow that’s perfect for brightening up the complexion. All shades are rich and creamy, pigmented, buildable and blend out seamlessly. The velvety smooth formula sits well on the skin for the entire day and stays put for upwards of 8+ hours without fading. You have your choice a rosy pink, dusty pink deep coral and a warm bronzer in both matte and shimmer finishes. It retails for $14.99.
It’s always nice to fake a radiant, healthy and glowing skin, especially as the weather starts to rise. The Catrice X Eman Highlighter Palette will instantly help to brighten your complexion for that lit-from-within glow. All 4 of these incredibly silky, velvety powders almost melt into the skin, for a completely flawless effect. Unlike some shimmery highlight powders, that tend to look too glitter and over-the-top, these shades help to improve the overall look of your skin in a natural, yet radiant way. It’s a great way to play up your features like your cheekbones and inner-eye area, while making your natural skin look more luminous and dewier. It can be placed on the tip of your nose, high point of your face, under brow bone, above the cupid bow, anywhere you want to add a touch of luminosity. It retails for $14.99.
If you love a 2-in-1 product, you’re going to love the Prime & Fine Multitalent Fixing Spray. It can be used both as a primer/ and or setting spray, or even a makeup refreshed mid-day. Its lightweight formula quickly sets and dries, without interfering with your current makeup application. It helps to keep your skin looking fresh and flawless well into the evening. Its ultra-fine mist helps to improve the longevity of your makeup and actually helps to improve the finish. It’s a must-have for spring. It retails for $9.99.
Since the foundation only applies as flawless as your base underneath, I never skip a primer. Catrice has two different options to choose from, first up the Prime And Fine Pore Refining Anti-Shine Keep Me Matte, which is designed to minimizes unwanted shine throughout the day. Unlike traditional matte primers that tend to leave the skin looking flat and dull, this one somehow manages to visibly refine pores, create a smooth surface for foundation to adhere to, all while bringing life back into your complexion. I’m not one to reach for a matte primer, as I tend to like a slightly dewier and more luminous glow, but this unique formula isn’t as drying as others. It retails for $9.99.
Catrice’s Prime and Fine Poreless Goodbye Pores Blur Primer on the other hand, is a new personal fave. To smooth skin’s canvas and ensure a completely flawless complexion, while creating a slightly glow-y appearance. Its light diffusing properties help illuminate the skin for an almost airbrushed effect. It keeps my skin hydrated and creates that healthy “lit from within glow” all day long. My skin is left brighter with a slight pearlescent glow that looks beautiful on its own or under foundation. It retails for $9.99.
To help hide those pesky blemishes, late-night dark circles or just even out my complexion, the Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer is camouflaging all my imperfections. Don’t let its extremely lightweight texture fool you, its intensely pigmented formula hides all redness, hyperpigmentation and breakouts with ease. Its handy doe-foot applicator allows for total control and precision, whether you’re looking to conceal larger areas, or small sections under the eyes, it can do it all. It instantly helps to brighten the under-eye area for an awakened and radiant effect. It helps to conceal puffiness, pimples and all other imperfections with ease. It retails for $7.99.
