Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining
 
What better time to freshen up your look than spring. We are all in dire need of a change and makeup can do just the trick!
 
 
The days are longer and the birds are beginning to chirp a little louder, there are many exciting things to look forward to with the season change.  We all are eagerly (and impatiently) awaiting the sunshine and fresh air but we aren't silly, we know the "in between" months entail lots of gloom and grey.  I am here to share a few fun tips to brighten up your look to get you through this rainy season.
 
 
1.  Pop of color-  Winter wasn't too nice on those lips of yours, but with the season change also comes change in humidity! Say goodbye to that chapstick you have had a close relationship with over the past few months. Its time to trade it in for a hot new lip color!  If you aren't feeling bold, reach for a great shade of nude and add a bit of gloss to give off a "plumping" effect.



2.  Add a glow-  Every celebrity you have seen walk a red carpet is rocking the perfect youthful glow.  Highlighter girls! It should be your new best friend.  It is such a simple product that makes the world of a difference. Just place it on the parts of your face that catch the light most, cheek bones, brow bones and just a small touch on the bridge of your nose.  Life changing.  

3. SPF-  Once the temperature starts to rise you better believe that all of us will be chomping at the bit to get outside and enjoy the fresh air!  Make sure you go through your makeup bag and double check to make sure that you are applying at least one product with SPF.  This step is by far the most important.  I can't stress enough the importance of protecting your precious skin from those nasty rays...even though they feel so nice! 


In conclusion, spring can be frustrating! It can be sunny and 65 degrees one day and then the next thing you know its raining for the next 12 days.  On the bright side, spring cleaning includes your makeup bag.  Once you've gone through and eliminated old products get out there and replenish with fresh new ones!
