Happy Spring, everyone! We're so excited spring is finally here, the crisp spring showers, flowers blooming, pastel colors everywhere, and warmer weather! We're so excited. But with these changes means we're making changes to our makeup bags, and so should you!
As the temperatures start to rise, your heavy, moisturizing, full coverage foundation can begin to feel - well heavy! And greasy and cakey and a bunch of other things no one really wants to feel. And pretty days mean you will be drawn to spending more time outside, which means you should be using some kind of SPF that you may have ditched during the winter months.
But just because it's spring doesn't mean you don't want any coverage at all, so we strongly recommend a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. Not only will these options feel great on your skin, but they're also multitasking which cuts down on the time spent getting ready in the morning. And with losing an hour to daylight any extra amount of time you can save and spend in bed is worth it!
