As much as we love orange and pink and neon trends that come with the high-fashion spring season, one look that never goes out of style is that gorgeous, healthy glow. With the change of the seasons come a major need to clean out your makeup bags and find the right products for spring. We’re transitioning from wintery hues and looking for makeup that accentuates–or creates–that ultra desirable spring glow. Here are the only skincare and makeup tips you need for a spring glow all year round. 

 

Hydrate

While we wish makeup could fix all of our complexion problems, the secret to perfect spring glow is hydration. Make sure you’re getting plenty of water each day. More than you think. Fill up that Nalgene at least three times a day. Your skin will glow in thanks.  Finishing sprays are also really helpful for extra dry skin.

 

Exfoliate

While both professional and natural skincare brands are always our first recommendation, there are plenty of drugstore brands that can scrub away dull skin. We like Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub.

 

Cleanse

For a gentle cleanse that washes away impurities without any harsh scrubbing, use a milk-based cleanser. We’re partial to this one.

 

Moisturize

Moisturizing (and hydration) are key to a natural glow. This moisturizer is amazing if you have oily skin. If you’re willing to splurge on a moisturizer, please get this one from GloMinerals. It might be magic. 

 

Primer

When you’re going for a natural looking glow, always always ALWAYS use primer. If you’re unsure which primer to buy for your skin type, get answers here.

 

The Base

For a natural glowing look, you want to show off a subtle sheen. Stay far away from any matte or full-coverage foundations. Go for light, tinted liquid makeup or even a tinted moisturizer if you can. 

 

The Palette

Full Bloom, First Blush and After Glow Collections are amazing palettes for a glowing complexion. They have fun combinations of peaches and metallics so you can mix up natural and night time looks. 

 

The Perfect Sexy Flush

Using peach tones like those featured in the palettes above give a natural, lively flush to your cheeks. Cream blushes are best for control. Dab a small amount on the apples of your cheeks  and blend into the cheekbone.
