As I said in the first Spring Fashion Series post, obviously makeup is not fashion, however I think great makeup perfects a great outfit! I’m sure most of you agree, otherwise you probably wouldn’t be reading this blog! As with all things fashion and makeup, there are a lot of products that can be worn/used year round, so I’m sharing my favorite items that I love to bust out in the spring and start showing off again!! (P.S. Don’t miss out on the Sephora sale details at the bottom of this post)

I don’t typically change up my primer for the seasons, but I figured I would still include some of my favorites on here! Regardless of the time of year, I love a great mattifying and/or pore blurring primer!
You all know my go-to foundation is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, but I have yet to wear it in the spring and summer. I’m sure it will be just as good as fall and winter, but I do know that the MakeUp ForEver Ultra HD Foundation (stick and liquid) works really well on my skin in the warmer months!
There’s nothing better than a warm, glowy and bronzed face! I tend to stay away from any bronzers with shimmer in it unless I’m heading off to the beach or on vacation! I was sent the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer and first off, the packaging is huge, which is a plus, but it also comes with a brush and a mirror in the compact!! I have been loving it!
Fall and Winter are when I tend to wear the warmer/darker blushes. Spring is all about bringing out the brighter colors, so the corals, peaches and pinks! I have always loved my Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso and wear it year round, and I especially love it in the warmer months. I love all Tarte blushes for the spring, mostly because they last all day, but also because the color payoff is great!
I can wear any highlighter year round, but I love to over-highlight (if that’s even a thing?!) in the warmer months! I’ve been wanting to try some of the highlight drops from Color FX, but I also LOVE my Champagne Pop Highlighter – it’s the perfect warm-toned highlighter and looks great anytime!
You know I love my nude lipsticks and I wear those any time of the year. Just like with the blush, spring is the perfect time to bust out those corals and pinks!
