3 Ways to Update Your Beauty Routine This Spring

A new season calls for a beauty routine overhaul.

As the weather gets warmer, you’ll want to swap out your winter skincare, makeup, and nail care staples for lighter, brighter options. We’re sharing three fresh ideas you can steal this spring to revamp your beauty regimen.

Simplify Your Skincare With Lighter Formulas

Push the heavy-duty creams to the back of your medicine cabinet as we step into spring. Instead, use Day Blue Light Essence from FitGlow Beauty, which protects your skin from pollution and boosts the skin cell membrane to maximize hydration. Follow it with FitGlow Beauty’s Cloud Collagen Oil, an antioxidant-rich product with ingredients that increase collagen production and give you a subtle glow.

Finish your skincare routine with the Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream by Summer Fridays. It treats your skin to three types of hyaluronic acid to hydrate without packing on any oil. Once your skin is set, make sure your brows are on point too! We love the Brow Definer pencil from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Get Playful With Your Nail Art

Whether you’re opting for a geometric-inspired look or a classic one polish design, this is the time to get playful with your nail art! This look, created by the pros at Chillhouse, combines two bright shades in a mod style. To make this your own, start with two nail polish colors, shown here on Taylor in a gorg saturated blue and crisp white. Then, add sharp geometric accents around your nail, paying close attention to the corners.

If you're looking for an equally fun style you can achieve a little more easily at home, try Chillhouse's genius press-on nail kits. Fans of a more traditional manicured style can still embrace the playful trend by adding bright new shades to their spring repertoire. We love this two pack in cool blue and electric red by Christian Louboutin Beauty.

Turn to Pale Pinks For Makeup

The final piece of your spring beauty refresh is mastering the perfect seasonal makeup look. Opt for a pale pink color palette for your eyes, lips, and cheeks for a feminine glow. For your face, choose a powder that has soft pink undertones, like the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. Pair it with a pink lip–we recommend this glossy lip formula by Charlotte Tilbury.

Use multiple eyeshadow shades to create subtle pink layers around your eyes. ILIA’s Necessary Eyeshadow Palette includes a light blush shade plus a shimmery pink gold and an almost nude pink–use them all to add dimensions around each eye! Complete your makeup look with a superpower black mascara, like the lengthening mascara from ILIA.
