Why I Get Excited About Spring Makeup

There is a lot to love about spring. Great weather, flowers blooming, lots of baby animals, and the return of colors to the fashion world. Things get a little dark during the fall and winter (not that I’m complaining; I think gray might be one of my favorite colors), but when spring comes around, color starts to creep back in. This return of color is one of the things that excites me about spring makeup. Spring palettes give me a chance to step outside of my comfort zone and add a little color to my makeup routine.

Eyeshadow colors are one of my favorite things to play with during spring. Yesterday, I wore a light green eyeshadow instead of my normal nude/light gold look just because. The free Ulta palette I got in the bag I posted about a couple of weeks ago has several really cute spring colors. There is a pale shimmery pink that I have been wearing almost daily called Peony Bouquet. I am crazy about it, so if you’re in the market for something springy and simple, it’s definitely worth checking out. It also contains an off-white base, a light green, a lilac, a mauve, and a bronze color. I’m very excited to continue to play around with some spring combos and find one that works for me.

I also like spring lip colors. While at Ulta a couple of weeks ago, I was looking through their Color Rush Lip Gloss (which is probably one of my favorite gloss lines), and I picked up two. A mauve (Elizabeth) which is well within my comfort zone and I do really like, and then I got a brighter coral color (Audrey). Audrey is definitely not in my comfort zone, but I am challenging myself to wear it. I think stepping outside of your comfort zone is so important, because you may end up finding something you love.
