5 Makeup Products to Buy for Spring/Summer

If spring should ever get here (seriously, 40 degrees in April? #cmonson), here are five products to make sure you have in your beauty arsenal…

1. Bronzer.

Yes, we’re already bronze, but apply some of this stuff to your cheeks and then apply a bright colored blush on top and hello, gorgeous sun-kissed skin!

Bronzers to try: Guerlain’s New Terracotta Bronzing Powder: comes in eight shades so you can find your perfect shade no matter your skin tone; Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzer; NARS Bronzer

2. Bright Coral Blush.

Coral (or its more subdued cousin peach) is a color that not only perks up your look, but also looks great on all skin tones.

Coral blushes to try: Barry M Cosmetics Blusher in Apricot; Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak; Cargo Blush in Key Largo

3. Red Lipstick.

Crimson lips take any outfit from “ok” to “BAM!”. Not sure which red works with your skin tone? Check out this post.

Red lipsticks to try: Stila Long Wear Liquid Lip Color in Fiery; MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo; Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte in #17; Black Radiance Perfect Tone Lipstick in Reggae Red

4. Waterproof Eye Liner.

Keep your eyes defined and have the look last practically all day with a waterproof liner.

Waterproof liners to try: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil; Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes; Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream (use with a brush; can also be used as eyeshadow, lip color, and blush)

5. Waterproof Foundation.

Want sheer coverage that can last through perspiration or a mid-day rain shower, try a waterproof foundation like Make Up For Ever Face and Body Liquid Foundation. Need to cover up some varicose veins or other marks on your legs? This stuff works its charm on the body as well.
