If you're like me, holed up at home practicing social distancing, it might feel like spring is NOT on its way and that these cold rainy days will last forever... but thankfully, Mother Nature has a schedule to keep! In anticipation for warmer days, a brighter sun, and stepping out into the world again, I've rounded up some spring shades that are so fun and easy to wear for any occasion. Now, I'm no stranger to eye shadow, but I am most definitely no expert. I missed that window years ago when my indecisive nature (hello, Libra rising) couldn't choose which colors to use and in what order. So for these spring looks, I opted for simple application methods; my handy dandy ring finger. And a liner brush here and there 😜BABY BLUE HUESThe first perfect spring shadow takes a cue from clear blue skies. I never really thought about putting baby blue shadow on my tan skin, something about it seemed like a wrong match in my head, but after picking up Glossier's new Skywash in Pool, I was gladly proven wrong. This may be the spring of baby blue shadow for me 🧐

Glossier.SkywashLILAC'S IN FULL BLOOM Spring is known for new beginnings, and that symbolism is solidified by all the beautiful flowers that bloom under spring's sun. Lilac shadow is an amazing color for spring because it feels equal parts romantic and playful —who wouldn't want this vibe? Here I used Colourpop's Super Shock Shadow in REM, a gorgeous opalescent lilac, which was a Christmas 2019 limited edition color. Don't fret, there are plenty of lilac alternatives!
COLOURPOPColourpop Super Shock ShadowGREENER GRASSES Inspired by the growing grass and leaves of spring, two tones of green is as spring as it gets. Using Huda Beauty's Emerald Obsessions Palette, I swiped a pretty pastel green on my lids and lined by bottom lashes with a deeper emerald color.
HUDA BEAUTYHaze Obsessions Eyeshadow PaletteA NEW EARTH A bit of grounding is what terracotta shadows will do for your look. I've always loved terra cotta shadows, but Glossier's Skywash in Burnt Sienna takes the cake! BTW, Skywash applies and blends like a dream. It's also buildable—my look here is about three layers deep. If you're afraid terracotta shadows might make it look like you have discolored eyelids (as was my fear), fret not! It's all about how much you put on, the trick being making the shadow opaque enough to stand out.

The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
DON’T try these at home!
With so many self- proclaimed beauty gurus in the world today, it’s very easy to get sucked into the DIY trend. Most experts and skincare specialists will tell you these homemade concoctions are not as good as they are made to be. Here are 5 ingredients you should not put on your face and why. 1. Essential Oils- The fragrant portion of plants is what makes essential oils. Modern science has revealed how fragrant oils cause problems for the skin. In the long run components in essential oils can significantly irritate and damage the skin. 2. Lemon Juice 🍋- Lemons are extremely acidic, which will irritate your skin. You can experience excessive redness, dryness, and skin peeling. Using lemons on your skin can cause more damage then benefit to your skin. 3. Coconut Oil- This ingredient causes a lot of debate amongst my followers, but fact is a fact, coconut oil is highly comedogenic. This means that the oil clogs pores on your face. When you apply coconut oil to your face it lays on the surface and is not able to be absorbed into the skin due to its large molecules. It can cause breakouts, blackheads, and whiteheads. 4. Witch Hazel- Here is another debate stirring ingredient. A lot of my patients and followers swear by witch hazel because of its immediate results on absorbing oil on the skin. What they fail to understand that it is not only absorbing the excess oils, but it is also stripping your skin of its natural oils. This can be very damaging to your skin and it’s natural protecting barrier, causing unnatural sensitized and dry skin. 5. Toothpaste- Such a popular trend and so harmful to your skin. Toothpaste contains high levels of baking soda which will mess with your skin’s ph level. This can lead to redness and burning of the skin. Toothpaste is a horrible option for your blemishes and instead I would recommend THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment As tempting as it is to try natural remedies at home, do your skin a favor and resort to stabilized and researched ingredients and products.
My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
