Every Spring, I like to refresh my beauty routine. Toss out old product, clean all my make up brushes, and try out some new products. I’ve received some wonderful Spring deliveries from various skincare and cosmetic brands and I’m excited to share a few of my favourites with you. From silky serums to the perfect shade of pink lipstick, here’s what I’ve added to my make up bag for Spring.
A few weeks ago, I attended a wonderful brunch with team Dior, and I gushed about how much I loved their lotions and serums. I’ve been a ‘Dior Diva’ (a delightful term the team calls Dior addicts) for years, especially when it comes to skincare.
From their Capture Youth line, I’ve added the Glow Booster Serum and Age-Delay Advanced Crème to my skincare routine and I’m so pleased with the results. The Glow Booster has innovative antioxidant technology with vitamin C and AHA to brighten and even my skin. Afterwards, I apply the Capture Youth moisturizer that’s filled with concentrated of iris extract. This lush cream leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished. Dior skin care products are luxury items, but well worth the price tag for the results.
Estee Lauder has recently launched their Perfectionist Pro, a formula they have patented until 2021! This lifting serum boosts collagen production and targets lines. It’s lightweight, hydrating and provides a fast firming affect on the skin.
Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonder Glow is one of the first products I received from her line a few years ago, and it’s been part of my make up routine ever since. Wonder Glow adds a soft highlight that reflects the light to give your skin that healthy glow. I often will wear it by itself for the no make up, make up look.
The new Dior Forever Undercover foundation is silky smooth and ideal for warmer days when you don’t want to wear too much make up. It’s not heavy like a regular foundation, but still provides coverage. You could easily mix it with a moisturizer for a even lighter weight BB cream.
A pretty new eye shadow palette with fresh shades is always great at the start of the new season. On the luxury side, Dior’s two limited edition 5-Couleurs Eyeshadows palettes for Spring 2018 are called Flirt and Thrill. Bright pops of pink colour are contrasted with neutral tones in this perfect little palette.
The Pixi Palette Chloette is an ideal all in one make up palette, and a really great price point. This palette is a collaboration with beauty guru Chloe Morello and includes super silky blush and eyeshadow shades. The trio of matte neutral eyeshadows and liner shades can also double as brow powders, along with brighter shades for blending.
The name says it all: Full, Fat Lashes! Charlotte Tilbury’s black mascara gives you long, full lashes with minimal clumping. This is another product I’ve been using for a while, but it’s very important to get a new mascara every couple of weeks to ensure the brush stays clean.
Speaking about switching up products, have you changed the lipsticks in your purse for a brighter shade yet? You should! Getting a new lipstick is always a good pick me up, and the warmer weather calls for something lighter and brighter. For colour, I’m loving Lipstick Queen’s Good Catch and Charlotte Tilbury’s Miranda May. For something more sheer, Dior’s collection of Lip Glows are delicious, luxurious colour balms. They come in matte, satin or shimmer finish in various shades of pink. Dior’s Colour Reviver technology in each Lip Glow reacts to the unique chemistry of each person’s lips to give you a natural custom colour that suits your skin tone. Le Petit Marseillais is a well known French company that has recently launched in Canada. The company was founded in Provence and is the number one selling body wash in France. You might recognize the logo if you’ve ever travelled there, as you’ll find it in most people’s homes. With products inspired by ingredients that thrive in the warm Mediterranean sun, the collection features scents like Apricot and Hazel, Mandarin and Lime, and the classic Lavender Honey. Pronounced Leuh Peh-tee Mar-say-yay, this cheap and cheerful body wash can be found at your local drug store.
