Springtime is my favourite time of the year. It is the time that the flowers bloom and the fresh smell of grass fills the air. It is the time of year when I can start to look at the pretty bright colours in my wardrobe and the range of pink lipsticks to brighten my makeup routine.
When I think about how I want to do my hair and makeup for a spring day, I like it to reflect what is going on outside. I like to create fresh and feminine looks with beautiful floral colours that make me feel fresh and glowy. For my hair, I like it to be styled, yet simple and relaxed.
I have put together a very Spring appropriate hair and makeup look for you that is easy to achieve and looks great for any day of the season!

You want to start off by making sure your skin is moisturized so as to not look dry. I have a dryer complexion and as I wanted to look more fresh and glowy I wanted to keep my skin light with the product, but dryness can show through more if you are not careful, so it’s important to moisturize!
I took my concealer and put it in the main areas of the face that I wanted to brighten and even out my complexion. This was the forehead, centre of the nose, cupids bow, chin and then placed in a triangle shape below my eyes.
Next, I took a damp beauty sponge (this one is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge) and blended out my concealer making sure to blend some onto my eyelids as well.
I then took my translucent powder and lightly dusted it under my eyes to prevent creasing. I chose to not powder the other areas of my face to prevent dryness. If you have a more oily complexion then feel free to powder where else you feel is necessary.
*Check out my post HERE to see what makeup brushes I use daily.
Taking the Jaclyn Hill palette, I started with my lightest transition shade (#1) on a blending brush and blended over my lid, concentrating it in the crease and blending up to the brow bone. On that same brush, I took my next colour (#2) and focused that on the outer edge and in the crease careful to not blend it above my crease. It is important to have a smooth transition, so lots of blending is needed.
Then I took a more dense lid brush and used the pretty light pink shimmer colour (#3) and spritzed that with my setting spray to help the colour to stand out more. I pressed that all over the inner and centre of my lid up to my crease line. As I wanted this pretty pink colour to be my main focus and to make it look more fresh and glowy, I used the same brush and added some of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Powder in light pink and pressed that into the centre of the lid to give a pop of shine.
Next, I took a large angled lid brush and dipped it into my darkest shade (#4) and I brushed that along the lash line from the outer corner to the centre of the lid to give a bit of definition and lift to the eye. I took my NYX retractable eyeliner in black and tight lined my upper waterline. Then I applied black mascara.
On the lower lid, I took my middle matte shade (#2) on an angled lid brush and swept that from the outer corner to just past the centre of my lower eyelid. To create bright and bigger looking eyes, I took my NYX Wonder Pencil in Light and lined my lower waterline. I followed by placing black mascara on my bottom lashes.
To finish off the eye look, I took the pretty highlight colour (#5) on a small dense precision brush and placed that along my brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes.
To finish off the face, I took my bronzer on an angled bronzer brush and lightly contoured my face to give definition and warmth. I followed by placing a shimmery pink blush on the apples of my cheeks.
I took the beautiful champaign pink highlighter by Elf and placed that on the high points of my face to make my skin glow. These places included the high point of my cheekbones, cupids bow, the centre and tip of the nose, above the brows and the centre chin. If you have an oily t-zone then you can just place the highlighter on the cheekbones if you wish.
To complete the look I wanted to provide 2 options for the lips. My first go to (and favourite) is the bright pink metallic lip by Milani. This is a great long lasting lip colour that will wear beautifully throughout your day.
For those of you who find the pink a bit too bold, this soft peachy pink colour by NYX compliments the look beautifully as well.
The perfect spring hairstyles are easy yet feminine. This is a perfect springtime hairstyle for your day.
I started off by curling my hair all over in sections keeping the ends loose and then I spritzed it lightly with hairspray so it would last throughout my day.
To create this beautiful twist braid, I started by grabbing two small sections in the front next to my part and twist them both towards the front and then I took the front twisted piece and crossed it over the back twisted piece and held those pieces in one hand while grabbing a piece behind the section.
Next, I put the new piece in with the top twisted piece that I had crossed over originally and twisted them both together making sure to twist to the front. I then crossed that new section under the other section bringing it towards the front and the other twisted section up and towards the back ready to grab a new piece of hair to blend in towards it. I kept following this pattern all the way along until I got towards the back where I then twisted both strands together all the way down.
After that, I secured the ends with a temporary elastic and did another twist braid on the other side and then pulled both braids together and secured them in the back with the elastic then folded the tail in to create one more twist and help hide the elastic.
The Completed Look:
I loved how this look came together. The hairstyle was so quick to do and easy to wear and makeup was so fresh and glowy that it made me feel eager to get out of the house a feel the freshness of Spring.
