Spring is the perfect time to update your makeup wardrobe. I'm almost ready to come out of hibernation and I can't think of a better reason to redo my vanity (but let's be honest. I don't really need much of an excuse). That said, here are five items that will change how you get ready.
Bravon Beauty Luminous Skin Perfecting Foundation is everything. This foundation was developed by Bravon Pascua, the master artist who developed looks and products for Bare Minerals, back when loose shadows were their jam. Things have come a long way since then and this foundation is nothing short of amazing. Just ask any one of his fans who live for his new releases (and stay up late to order when they goes live!). The Luminous Skin Perfecting Foundation wears until you take it off, without a primer. If gives skin a luminous, but not shiny finish and blows the lids off of the other HD formulations out right now. It's available in 16 shades and if you aren't sure which color matches you, grab a TRYOUT Foundation Edition 6-pc Sampler kit . And remember--a little goes a long way! $29.00
Cover FX Perfecting Pencil is so genius I don't know why there aren't loads of these on the shelves already. Want to line your inner rim, hide a pimple, pop your lips, shape your brows, sharpen your eyeliner, all on the go? The Perfecting Pencil is all you need. Available in ten shades, this ultra-pigmented and creamy liner is like carrying a pro MUA everywhere you go. $20.00
Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette just hit actual shelves at Ulta last weekend and it's so cute! I love the scent and the browns are perfect for that smoky brown eye that goes perfectly with this spring's matte lippies. $36.00
Fake a perfect tan with Vita Liberata Body Blur and save yourself thousands of dollars in laser treatments when you're 50. Body Blur wears for 24 hours anywhere on the body, while covering imperfections and makes your next selfie HD ready. Fake tan legs and arms for those first few days of vacation or mix with your foundation for a daily hint of tint (but please remember to wear an SPF. This doesn't provide any SPF coverage!). $45.00
Update your hair with AG Texture Gloss. Use this lightly at the ends of your hair to give it an edgy vibe or slick hair back with that not-quite-wet-look that can still boss the boardroom. This is the most versatile, shiny texture product I've ever encountered. If you like to play with your hair, or just slick down those baby hairs, this gloss is sooo good. $24.00
