SPRING 2018
By Elana Lyn Gross for Modern Muse

Spring has arrived, along with prospects of warmer weather and all the buzz of activity that it brings. As you transition your closet from sweaters and scarves to sundresses and sandals, there's no better time to update your beauty routine. Incorporate the vibrant shades of the season into your look by adding these new products to your makeup bag.

Whipped Cream Blush:

Inspired by the (almost) too pretty to eat French pastries, Lancome's Le Petit Macaron Blush and Blender Duo is a très chic option that gives your cheeks a youthful, rosy glow. The whipped cream formula comes with a macaron-shaped blender so you can customize your application to achieve the perfect pretty-in-pink shade. C'est parfait! Available at Sephora.

Matte Pink Lipstick:

Trade in your go-to lip product for Laura Mercier's Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick in Fab. This deep pink shade hydrates and conditions your lips so the pigment-rich color glides on in one swipe. The other colors are also just as fearless with fun names like Goals, Bring It, Clique, It Girl, Fab and Power! Available at Bloomingdale's.

Three-in-One Palette:

You're out and about all day, and sometimes you need a quick costume change to go from desk to drinks. Keep the Urban Decay Backtalk Eye and Face Palette from Sephora in your bag so you have everything on-hand to shift your look from day to night. This palette includes eight eye shadow shades, two blush options, and two highlighters to keep you ready for anything life throws your way.

Floral-Inspired Blush:

Florals for spring may not sound cutting edge, but Clinique's floral-inspired Cheek Pop collection is pretty darn innovative. The patented technology transforms liquid pigment into a silky powder that doesn't leave powdery residue behind. You'll get a natural-looking, healthy glow that might have people surprised you spent all day in meetings. Available at Sephora.

Tinted SPF Lip Treatment:

Now that it's time to spend more of your day in the sunlight, it's even more important to protect your pout. Fresh's best-selling Sugar Lip Treatment, which is available at Sephora, is made with moisture-preserving sugar, nourishing oils and SPF 15 to do just that. Their newest color, Punch, has a tropical red-orange tint and, of course, the line's signature summery citrus scent to keep lips soft and kissable through summer and beyond.

A Sunset-Inspired Palette:

Embark on an Arabian adventure with Huda Beauty's Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette from Sephora. Inspired by the colors of the desert, it includes a whopping 18 highly-pigmented shades and four distinct textures. Layer these versatile tones to create unique looks that range from subtle to sultry, and everything in between. The possibilities are endless!

A Glittery Brush Set:

Put your game face on in style with the Tarte Goal Getters Contour Brush Set from Sephora. It's so beyond basic and includes glittery, millennial pink brushes for blush, contouring, foundation, highlighter and concealer adorned with rose gold sequin handles. This five piece set also has vegan and cruelty-free bristle to make sure every application keeps your complexion flawless.
