Beauty Products You Need For Spring

For the first time, it’s fiiiiinally starting to feel like spring here in NYC! I didn’t even need to wear a coat today, ya’ll. In honor of this beautiful springiness, I’m sharing five of my must-have beauty products you need in your makeup bag this season…


Kat Von D Innerstellar Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Innerstellar Palette

Add a pop of springy pastels to your traditional smoky eye with Kat Von D’s super versatile Innerstellar palette. It has everything you need to create a traditional dramatic look and also allows you to capture several spring trends in one product. Blend up a neutral brown toned look, add a pop of metallic silver, or sweep on some subtle springtime lavender, all with the same handy palette.


Fresh Peony Brightening UV Shield SPF 50+

Fresh Peony UV Brightening SPF 50

I first discovered the Fresh Peony Brightening UV Shield in the fall at the Glam Beauty 100, but this product has spring written all over it. It packs a whopping SPF 50 in it which should come in handy for all of the picnics you’ll be experiencing in this awesome sunny weather. The best part is that it doesn’t look or feel like a traditional sunscreen. This moisturizing fluid contains an exclusive brightening complex derived from peony and licorice root extracts. It leaves the skin looking luminous and creates the perfect base to wear under foundation.


Dior Addict Lip Glow

Dior Addict Lip Glow

This is actually a fabulous lippie to slather on year round, but I love it especially for spring. It’s the exact opposite of all of the heavy vampiness we’ve been wearing on our lips all winter. The pink tint is my favorite, but there is also a beautiful coral color that is perfectly on trend for spring. Both have an amazing silky texture and will react with the chemistry of your lips to create a personalized flattering shade.


Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

Hourglass Ambient Palette

This Hourglass Ambient lighting palette is a must-have for any beauty junkie. It allows you to create beautifully diffused dimension that lives a lit-from-within glow without shimmer overload. It will brighten up your look gorgeously and easily. Obsessed.


Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Ody(Sea)

Marc Jacobs Highliner

Let’s get real, when Kim Kardashian sports a certain shade, the world pays attention.  She recently brought turquoise rimmed eyes back into the limelight, so it’s safe to say this look is reaching trend status again. Marc Jacobs Highliner is my favorite eyeliner of all time (yes, I just said that) and I think his teal shade, Ody(Sea) is the perfect product for rocking the teal liner.
