Must Haves for Spring - Beauty

Well the warm weather is here for most of us and that means we need to slather on scrubs, soften up dry winter skin and assess our beauty routines! There are a few things we need to do to get ready to pull out that warm weather wardrobe and having a simplified beauty routine is key! Here are a few things I think are helpful:

1.) Tinted Moisturizer

Josie Marn Tinted Moisturizer -

The last thing you want in the warm weather is heavy foundation. This stuff is 100% organic!

2.)Blush in a stick

Tarte Cheek Stain -

This stuff can cut your beauty routine in half. It works on cheeks lips and eyes and gives you a natural warm weather glow :)

3.) Bright Nail Colors

Modern Flowers Collection Sephora by OPI -

These colors are fun and whimsical. Perfect for spring!

4.) Foot scrub

Sephora Collection Super Foot Scrub

You need soft and pretty feet for your fabulous new spring sandals! This one has a massage head applicator!

5.) Spray tan

GlowFusion Micro Nutrient Face and Body Natural Protein Tan -

Because you're legs have been hidden under layers of clothes all winter you don't want to blind people when you throw on your spring skirts! ;)

6.) fushia lipstick

Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick -

When you choose a bright lipstick you don't want anything that will dry out your lips and look flakey :)

7.) Bronzer

Benefit Legally Bronze Kit -

This kit has everything you need including highlighter!

8.) Sunscreen

Shiseido Extra Smooth Sun Protection Lotion SPF 38 -

Whether or not you hit the beach you need to protect that skin!

9.) Double Duty Lip gloss:

Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips -

This stuff is a plumper but doesn't make your lips burn. It's fantastic!

10.) Waterproof Mascara

Diorshow Black Out Waterproof Mascara -

Just incase the weather gets balmy you won't have this stuff dripping all over your face!

I also want to thank all my lovely readers for your tips for my dress. The event is in a few weeks so stay tuned for the results. I will definitely post some pics ;)

Also I want to say thank you to Brow Raised Beauty for the really sweet post she did with a comment about yours truly. It really made my day!

Happy Friday Everyone!! Have a fabulous weekend! xoxo
