Now that we have sprung into Spring, it is officially time for fresh, glowy makeup looks, especially peach makeup looks. I have been loving the Tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion (review here) to protect and hydrate my skin. It has a lovely glowy sheen and wears beautifully under makeup. One of my favorite makeup techniques for every day is to skip foundation and only wear concealer. This allows me to conceal any blemishes and discoloration while still leaving the rest of my skin healthy and fresh. I have been using the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector*  (review here), which provides really great coverage while still looking natural. If you would like me to write a blog post dedicated entirely to my no-foundation makeup routine, please let me know! For bronzer, the L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer in ‘Medium/Deep Neutral’ is a quick and easy way to contour the cheekbones, temples, and jawline since the creamy formula is so pigmented and blendable. For additional warmth and dimension, I love the Make Up For Ever Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer in ’25I – Soft Iridescent Cinnamon’. It is sheer yet buildable and has a stunning sheen without any shimmer. My go-to for a peachy glow is the Milani Baked Blush in ‘Luminoso which has an amazing high quality formula. The Milk Makeup Highlighter in ‘Lit’ is a creamy champagne shade that melts into the skin for a dewy and sunkissed glow. All of these cheek products work so well on bare skin and truly enhance your natural beauty! I am in love with the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette (review here) because it is so perfect for creating Spring makeup looks. Using ‘Georgia’ as a transition shade, apply ‘Puree’ and ‘Summer Yum’ in the crease. Then, apply ‘Luscious’ and ‘Cobbler’ on the lid, and ‘Just Peachy’ and ‘Bellini’ slightly above the crease for a pop of color. For the perfect peachy lip combo, I recommend the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Stockholm’ and the Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm in ‘Canteloupe Cream’. I hope you love this look as much as I do! What is your favorite makeup look for Spring?
