Spring up your Beauty Routine

Spring Cleaning is here! Ignore the house, spend some time spring cleaning up your makeup and beauty routine!

Clean out that closet. How many old shampoos, lotions, expired sunscreen, almost empty bottles of hairspray and whatnot is crowding up your bathroom or linen closet? Clean it. Do a good purge and get it out of there! (Remember to get a receipt for your tax deduction for clothing donations!)

Wash your brushes. I am positive you don’t need to do this. You clean your brushes every week, right? Or at least once a month, right? It’s ok. We forget too. Take some time to get your brushes in shape and clean for spring!

Get ready to show some skin – exfoliate those legs and get a super close shave. Plan ahead for your bikini wax and start what you might call “summer grooming.” Start using Doves deodorant t get or underarms ready for summer sleeveless shorts. Use some sunless tanner so you don’t blind people with your winter legs, if you tend to run pale. Switch to a lotion with SPF so your skin is covered everyday, not just when you hit the beach or pool.

Once you get a little sun, you may need to switch up your makeup a bit. I have a winter (aka PALE) makeup bag and a summer (aka slightly less pale) makeup bag. Make sure your makeup matches your skin, ladies! Try Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer that lets you mix colors so that you get exactly the right shade – even if tat shade keeps changing throughout the summer.
