Spring is almost here and it means that you can ditch the dark berry lipsticks and smokey eyes in favour of a more bright and fresh look for the (hopefully) warmer months. Spring and summer makeup is all about showing off your natural glow from within and making the most of putting less on your face and hair.

Switch your foundation out
The first thing you’ll want to do when coming into spring from winter is swap out your regular foundation for a lighter B.B. cream. These creams act as tinted moisturisers and they leave your skin with a natural glow without leaving any redness on the skin. They also contain SPF which protects your skin from the sun – bonus. If you’re not sure whether you are confident enough to flaunt more of your skin, maybe contact a cosmetic clinic to give you a helping hand.
Rather than using a strong moisturiser on your skin, in the summer months, your skin can become really oily so it is better for you to use a light serum to bring some moisture into the skin. Serums are much more natural on the skin and they can actually penetrate much deeper to allow for better hydration.
Use a primer
Primers are an essential part of your makeup routine because they provide a base for your foundation to stick to and they also stop the rest of your makeup from penetrating into your pores. Using a radiant primer with a purple tint can be brilliant for your skin and it will allow you to look radiant from within every day.
Whether you are prone to blackheads or not, it is important to remember that exfoliating is a part of your beauty routine you want to include every few days. Exfoliating is the process of getting rid of oil and dead skin from your face and this can leave your skin feeling radiant and glowing all year long. Three times a week is the recommended frequency you should exfoliate to keep the skin happy and healthy for longer.
The last thing you want on a warm day is to be sweating and end up with no foundation on and mascara all over your eyelids. The best thing you can do during the warmer months is switch up to waterproof makeup so that you can stay covered and flawless all day long. Sometimes even a setting spray can make a massive difference and help your makeup stay in place throughout the day. So, make sure to invest in one.
Control your oil
If you have very dry skin then this last tip won’t apply to you. However, if you have oily or combination skin you need to make oil blotting sheets a regular part of your routine. Oil blotting sheets don’t take off your makeup throughout the day but will soak up any excess oil sitting on the surface of your skin. You will feel much better after using one of these bad boys!
This was a collaborative post and I hope these beauty tips help you in the upcoming months. My beauty regime has definitely been slacking over winter, do you have any more tips to share?
