Happy Hump Day loves! 🙂
It’s already the middle of the week! We’re almost there!
Aside from cleaning up my closet in preparation for the warmer weather, I also like to spruce up my makeup table when the seasons change! Do any of you do this too? 😉
Before I deal with the clutter of all of the makeup products on my vanity, I make sure to clean up all of my brushes first because the tools that we use to apply makeup are so important, don’t you agree? I always make sure to wash my brushes once a week, but I generally only clean the ones that I use the most frequently, such as my powder brush, my eyebrow and eyeliner brushes, as well as my cushion puffs.
When I’m doing my spring cleaning, though, I make sure to clean all of my brushes, even the ones I don’t usually use that are sitting in the back of my makeup drawer because I just love it when everything’s squeaky clean, don’t you? 🙂
Once I’m done with all of the makeup brushes, I can finally get started on decluttering all of the things that are just sitting on my vanity! First off, I like to give all my nail polishes a good look, making sure to throw out ones that are dried out. Then, I pick out a few of my favorite colors for the spring, like these beautiful pastels and sparkly glitters, leaving the rest to be stored away in my drawers for the fall or winter.
Moving on to the staples of spring makeup, I pick out some of my favorite spring-colored lip tints and blush (because what’s warmer weather without bright lips and rosy cheeks). Some of my favorite lip tints of all time are the lip tints from Etude House because they’re so easy to use, and the color lasts forever (even after eating)!
Aside from makeup, I also make sure to freshen up my body care routine, and what better way to do so than by incorporating some rose-infused products into my regimen? I’ve always been a loyal fan of Crabtree & Evelyn‘s incredible hand therapy creams, and my absolute favorite of theirs has got to be the Rosewater one. Not only does it make my hands super soft, the ultra feminine and delicate scent of roses just smells heavenly – absolutely perfect for the spring! A little tip for spring cleaning – don’t hesitate to bring out some of those floral scented products for the warmer days because they’re so light, fresh, and delicate!
In addition to body care, haircare is also a staple for the warmer days, particularly dry shampoo because the hot weather can mean sweaty, oily hair. I’ve been loving this little sample sized dry shampoo from Amika, not only because it’s super portable (this literally fits in my purse), but also because the colors of the bottle are just so spring-ready, don’t you think? 🙂
I can go on and on about all of the makeup and skincare that I’ll be switching out in accordance to the weather, but my tips are pretty simple:
- Assess what products are too old and should be thrown out
- Incorporate a lighter color palette (i.e., lip colors, blushes, and nail polishes)
- Switch to lighter skincare products that won’t clog pores in the warm weather
- Add floral-based scents to your collection
I hope you all liked the Vanity Edition of my Spring Cleaning series! Let me know if you’re decluttering your makeup table as well, and how you’re doing so! Always love hearing from you beauties! 🙂
