3 MUST-HAVE LIPSTICK SHADES FOR SPRING

A LOOK INTO MY SPRING LIPSTICK ROUTINE


I have a confession to make.  I’ve never been into lipsticks until now because I never felt like I could pull them off and every time I tried to purchase one I would get super overwhelmed and usually bought the wrong color for my skin tone.  I recently re-organized my makeup drawer and got rid of a ton of lipsticks that I never wear and were just taking up space.  I’ve been slowly branching out and trying new colors but my favorites to stick with especially for spring are nudes, pinks, and mauves.  

These colors are a little more forgiving if you’re new to the lipstick world and haven’t figured out the whole lip liner thing. It’s also a great way to get used to wearing lipstick i.e. remembering to re-apply throughout the day and so on. I like to consider it the toe dip approach.

Here are the go-to and recently purchased shades I’m wearing for spring.

NUDE

One of my favorite nude lipsticks is “Velvet Teddy” by M.A.C. It’s one of the perfect nude lip colors on the market in my opinion.  Another favorite is “Popular” by Bare Minerals.  This is more of a gloss with a slight pink undertone and it looks great on almost everyone.

PINK

I like to use pinks with nude undertones or a slightly mauve undertone.  I’m not one to wear a bright Barbie pink.  I just recently discovered “Cruising” by NARS.  It’s very light and has a very light pink undertone.  It’s a great daytime color if you’re going for a more natural look. For a matte look, I like “Exposed” by Tarte.  If you are looking for a brighter pink they also have a color called “Orgasm” which was featured as part of their 2017 summer collection.  For a slightly deeper shade of pink, I like “Patisserie” by M.A.C.

MAUVE

I’ve been loving mauve in everything lately, clothing, nail color, lipstick you name it!  When it comes to lipstick, I like to go matte.  My go-to’s are “Infamous” by Bare Minerals which I am wearing here and “Mauve Wife” by Smashbox.

  • Ok guys it’s “Friday night and I feel alright” 🎶 Name that song! Go! P.S. I’ll give you a little hint, it’s from the 90’s and it’s not by Michael Jordan.... Let’s see if you can guess 😏
  • This midi dress is “The Love of my Life” no really that’s what it’s called and it’s such a good staple. P.S. It now comes in mustard! 💛

  • Instagram would “succ” if it weren’t for you! Seriously guys, I mean it! I’m so thankful for you and your kind words, patience, and support! Thank you so much for following, liking, commenting, and interacting with my stories! Allowing me to get to know you as well as getting to know a little more about myself too if I’m honest! Thank you for being there, keeping me alive much like these succulents and helping me grow! Doing this is a learning process, but if it weren’t for you, I would have never found my true passion as a creator and for that I will forever be thankful! ❤️❤️❤️ .

  • I’ve been on a straw, raffia, and rattan binge here lately. I love the raw textures and natural colors. They also double as a pretty accessory lying around as home decor. What are your thoughts on this trend? 
Also, this cute jump suit was a steal under $30 and it comes in black!

  • Another lovely Farmer’s Market pic from this weekend! They have seriously upped their game on presentation and I really wanted that cool planter for my herbs! No I didn’t buy it (props only), but wouldn’t mind finding/buying one similar and stashing it in my office/craft room for 3 years before I actually put it to use... 😂 #vintagefinds #hoarder #guilty
