Though our new year begins a good quarter before, the colours arrive with Spring season. The season carries with it not only the beauty and bounty of nature but even a sense of renewal of our being. While internal spark and health is where the real beauty of a woman rests, an external touch can do more than just a few tricks. Eventually if you look good externally it will percolate within and vice versa. Though beauty needs a healthy skin and body some products and colours of the season will accentuate the inner glow better than the rest. Here we have curated some of the best makeup products for a day wear in Spring season.
All About That Base
Like with architecture and life, the building blocks of every great work of art are key to its charisma. The primers, pore perfectors blend perfectly well with your skin and give the required base to even out the skin texture as well as the visible pores. Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear, Meteorites Primer by Guerlain, Lancome La Base Pro Pore Eraser and La Base Pro Makeup Base are all quite neutralising, natural tone, translucent base that only enhance the foundation while perfecting the skin texture and minimize pore visibility for an even look. The pore perfector by Lancome and pearly primer by Guerlain are quite seamless to smoothen the skin.
During the day, when the sun is out all your face really needs is a lighter than feather coverage acting like a second skin. The non- oily yet hydrating sheer cover works well to keep the base intact and define the facial canvas. An added sun protection with compact powders and setting powders does give the added advantage of anti-aging protection. Lancome Dual Finish longwear powder foundation is versatile, paraben and sulfate free weightless coverage that lasts longer while Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation is true to its name with a pearl finish leaving the skin hydrated thanks to the mica ingredient. The luminous finish glides on the skin without cracking at the fine lines, wrinkles throughout the day. Ever worried about your dehydrated dull skin after a night out / hangover? Well, YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint is a drop of anti- fatigue and skin awakening potion rolled into one. It has the formula to wake up the skin and hydrate it with its stimulating Ruscus Extract and leaves the skin luminous and intact for 8 hours. For those ladies who have a hectic day at work or at social events for over 12 hours, fret not as Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place will keep your face as fresh as a dew drop protecting it from the sun, humidity and the pollution outdoors.
A concealer is only as good as its coverage and smoothness, Bobbi Brown’s Intensive Skin Serum has the weightlessness to dissolve and lighten the blemishes as well as even out the skin tone. Its formulated blend helps in reducing the dark circles due to aging and pigmentation. Burberry’s Cashmere Concealer with the soft fabric applicator is creamy and blends effortlessly. As for setting powder is concerned we believe that its is quite crucial for the entirety of the look as it not only places the foundation base well but also adds a layer of protection from the sun and pollutants. Bobbi Brown’s Nude Finish Illuminating powder works wonders and comes in different skin tones. It perfects the skin tone while illuminates the face thanks to its light reflecting pearl pigment molecules. It also plays a role to keep the skin hydrated.
Shades of Blush
Spring is all about adding the colours of renewal to your day and your day wear should have the right palette that accentuates the shades of the season and your look. But most importantly it should all add value to your makeup overall and not be resistant to other products. NARS Cheek Studio Palette is exclusively at Sephora and comprises four blush shades, Laguna Bronzing Powder and a Paloma Contour Blush for an inclusive package. The palette has all the right shades for the season adding definition and soft focus to the face while illuminating it as well. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush, Sephora’s Spring Summer Pallette with Pantone and Giorgio Armani’s SS 2016 Runway Palette have the absolute colours needed for the season’s shades and include illuminating and face sculpting effects leaving your look luminous and long lasting for the day.
Eyes Wide Shut
Nothing speaks on your face like your eyes and to give the right look for these windows to your inner self you must have the right shades with an inherent effect on application. Estee Edit by Estee Lauder is an eye palette inspired by Kendall Jenner’s personal style and look. You can use the shades for instant smokey eye effect. The eye liner from the same collection by Estee Lauder is ultra black which lasts for 12 hours. You can create a slim line to a winged eye look with good definition and smoothness. The Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-Tip quite literally is designed to draw a precise line with intense pigment density just like a felt-pen would write on paper. It has smooth strokes and incredible depth for a dramatic to a light day wear look. The best part it’s minus parabens. Speaking of sans parabens and pro depth, bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara Petite Precision Brush has a great volume addition to shorter lashes with its exclusive ProTwist360 wand like feature. Diorshow Mascara Set – Limited Edition is another voluminous mascara with its promise of increasing volume to twice the original when applied. It comes with Mascara and Lash Volumizer Extension brush.
Lips Don’t Lie
Though the colours of Spring are predominantly blush pink to peaches we cant stop ourselves from indulging with the Sephora Collection Rouge cream Lipstick as well as NARS collection. Both have rich an creamy texture with full pigment. The collections have soft and day time shades too for a more nude to pink look. The Vitamin E protects the lips while giving a full bodied appearance.
