We’ve hoped and we’ve wished for winter to be gone, and sadly it looks like we’ll have to wait a few more weeks, but we can still hope! Start prepping for warmer temperatures to set and revamp your makeup bags and prep your skin for the summer.
So this month, we’ve put together a list of products to help you do just that!
Sunday Riley – Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream
This amazing water-resistant formula is perfect for all skin types and really aids in brightening and refining the skin. It helps to reduce the pigment in dark spots and balance out skin tone, and also adds moisture to help diminish the signs of pores and fine lines. You can purchase the Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream at your local Sephora.
The Estee Edit by Estee Lauder – Flash Photo Gloss
A must-have for that person constantly in the limelight, snapchatting, or taking selfies. This high tech gloss is created with cool blue micro-pearls to highlight the whites of your teeth and eyes. It can be worn alone or layered over your favourite lipstick. We would definitley reccoment this gloss to any future brides to be, as it does look great in photos. You can pick up the Flash Photo Gloss up at any Estee Lauder counter or Sephora.
Yves Saint Laurent, Black Opium Nuit Blanche
You can never go wrong with a new scent for the season, especially when it’s Yves Saint Laurent. This silky, sexy scent combines notes of rice vapor, bourbon pepper, orange blossom, vanilla essence, coffee accord, white musk and almond milk. It’s the perfect sultry fragrance to get you through the balmy spring and summer nights.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Cover (+) Stick Colour Corrector
This colour corrector stick can be used by anynone! It is so easy to use and has such incredible pay off. It is available in three hues: Bright now (eliminates darkness), Covert Affairs (neutralizer), and Getting Warmer (conceals and cancels). This is a perfect product for that girl on the go, that keeps a few goodies in her purse. They can be used alone and/or under makeup.
KYE for Shu Uemura – Fresh Cushion Blush
Now cushion blush might not be a form of blush most are familiar with. The cushion blush is essentially an encased sponge that is soaked with liquid colour (blush) . You can press on the sponge using your fingers or a sponge applicator and that’s how the blush would be applied. The KYE collection offers a peach and pink shade of cushion blush, and are perfect natural colours to be blended into the apples of the cheeks.
Caudalie Organic Grape Water
Coachella is only a couple weeks away and Caudalie’s Organic Grape Water is the perfect item to pack to add back the moisture the desert weather will rob your skin of. Just a quick mist and your sun beaten skin will be refreshed and rehydrated.
Nip+Fab Kale Fix Make-Up Removing Pads
Our favourite go-to make up removing pads to take on the go. Not only are the gentle enough for your eyes, but they’ve got an extra kick of kale and watercress to really get that grit sitting on your lids off, while softening and adding elasticity.
KYE for Shu Uemura Sheer Colour Balm
These sheer colour balms from the KYE collaboration with Shu Uemura are a perfect alternative to lipsticks or glosses that might feel a bit heavy in warmer weather. They collection boasts three shades including pink, orange, and peach and each has a smooth consistency to help keep your lips shiny and moisturized.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #23
We all know how we feel about highlighting, especially for the spring and summer seasons. Well, you can’t have a perfect highlight without the perfect brush to apply it. Brush #23 from Anastasia Beverly Hills is rather large and domed in shape with natural bristles. Its soft and fluffy finish allows for a flawless finish and no harsh lines. You can purchase Brush #23 at your local Sephora store.
