Get the spring look: Dos and Don’ts

I’m so happy it’s spring. You know what that means? Bright colors, new hair, flowers. Those who fell into the winter and fall trance of matte dark lipsticks, dark colored eyeshadow and pale skin — fear no more, it’s time to get bold. 

Please do: 

  • Get out that bold red lipstick. Might as well pull out your pinks and corals  too. Sephora’s liquid lipstick has some of the brightest spring colors around.
  • Shop spring lines. Forever 21 and Kendall and Kylie’s line are affordable and bring out the latest and most stylish spring trends.
  • Try a new hair color. If you’re feeling bold enough, go blonde, pink, or even try grey like me! 
  • Paint your nails. Use yellows, pastel pinks, whites, greys and coffee colored polishes. These are the most popular colors this spring.
  • Use bright colored eyeshadow. I’m not the only one who’s been not using certain colors on my palette. This spring is the perfect time to experiment with some brighter colors. Blue and gold have been popular bright colors, try them out. You’ll be shocked!
  • Moisturize. The weather’s getting warmer, make sure you have a good face lotion. Also, oil serums have been trending. I use Korres Rose Brightening oil serum to even and brighten my skin. I just mix it with my foundation and my face feels hydrated.
  • Hike, go for a walk. It’s the perfect weather to do so. Breathe in the freshest air of spring, it’s good for you!

Please Don’t: 

  • Over do makeup. Yes, bright colors are in this spring, but if you use a bold lip color and eyeshadow and do heavy highlighter, that’s not as in. Try using a bold lip and light eye makeup or a bold eye and a nude rosey or mauve colored lipstick.
  • Spend all your time inside. Watch the flowers bloom, take a nap under the trees, make flower tattoos. Pinterest has some great spring activites and crafts, I’ll let you google “how to make flower tattoos” yourself, they’re sweet.

A review: Bésame Lipstick Matchsticks

   
At first, I had mixed feelings about this product. I received it in the mail from Sephora for $6.00 (way overpriced for my liking) and thought the sticks would be a bit bigger. Well, here’s the package. It’s cute, vintage-y. 

  I opened it up and I was confused  
 How was I supposed to apply lipstick to my huge lips using the tip of a matchstick with like maybe two drops of lipstick?? I pouted about this for a while, it sat in my makeup bag for quite a while and then I thought about trying it. 
  
Again, I couldn’t get over the size, but I decided I should stop complaining and try the dang thing. As I lined my lips with the tiny, miniscule matchstick (that is actually SMALLER than an actual matchstick!) I thought: It ain’t that bad! 

Believe it or not, the color was vibrant! I would use these matchsicks for lining and then use another color to fill the rest of the lip (just because I have bigger lips) Someone with smaller lips could apply the matchstick to their whole lip, but it was not working for me, sadly.

The full version is available on Sephora’s website and it is a fairly new product and I would imagine they would go quickly so if you like what you see, knock yourself out and buy one! 

Final words:

  •  3 1/2 out of 5 stars
  • Great, vibrant color
  • Goes on smooth
  • Neat packaging
  • Guess you get what you pay for (regarding the size)

If you’ve tried this product let me know below what you think! 

Thanks for reading, stay golden.
