Beauty products to put a spring in your step
words Sophie Lou Wilson
If you feel like a whole new person when the sun comes out, you're not alone. There's a science behind why feeling warm makes us feel good. Many of us feel happier and more energetic as we enter the spring and summer months.
But what should you do with all this extra energy? Whether it’s meeting a friend in the park, spending the extra hour of daylight in a sunny beer garden or heading further afield for a bank hol city break, your diary might be filling up as you realise that going outside feels alright when it isn't cold and rainy. And what better excuse is there to give your makeup bag a spring reset?
Whether you're looking for some day out essentials like lip balm and SPF or you're on the hunt for a vibrant nail polish and shimmery eyeshadow for your next night out, here are all the best spring beauty buys to rejuvinate your routine this season.
you glow girl
The sun is glowing and you can glow too. Flanerie's luxurious primer is silky and lightweight, ehancing the look and wear of your makeup. It also includes hyaluronic acid to nourish your skin and retain moisture.
You can tell spring is near when you start to smell flowers in the park. Take some of that special scent with you everywhere with Gabar's luxurious floral fragrance, combining amber, white musk and bergamot.
If you can't treat yourself to some bright beauty buys in spring, then when can you? Ashe's striking nail polish will add a splash of colour to any outfit so brighten your day and give it a go.
cool as ice
Refresh tired eyes with Skin Proud's cooling eye balm. This unique balm can be used on bare skin or over makeup to lock in hydration for healthy under eyes.
Sure, it's amazing to feel the sun on your skin, but if you're heading outside this spring, make sure to smack on some SPF before you go. Not only will this SPF 50 serum from Saltee help protect against the sun's harmful UV rays, but it's the best preventative anti-ageing product too. You can thank us later.
no makeup makeup
This nude lipstick from HIGHR is a celeb fave for a reason. It's made from organic plant butters and oils for a balm-like feel while its understated colour subtly enhances your lips.
on the go
Once you've stocked up on your spring reset beauty buys, you're going to need somewhere to store them. This soft sage vegan leather makeup bag from Hair Gain is perfect for your everyday handbag or travel.
Unfortunately, spring marks the start of hayfever season. Hayfever can make your eyes water and can dry out the skin around them. Protect that delicate eye area with Skin Proud Bright Eye Cream, infused with superfood pomegranate extract which is known to be rich in vitamin c and antioxidants.
