Winter is winding down which means that warmer, sunnier days are just around the bend—and let’s be real, we can’t wait! After months of enduring brisk winds and bitter temperatures, our beauty routine is in need of a serious need revamp. In spring, it’s all about lightweight moisturizers and foundations, bright makeup colors like fuchsia and teal, and messy, undone hair. That means you can put away your heavy creams and nude makeup for the time being. It’s time for a beauty overhaul! From skin care to makeup to hair care, we’ve got you covered with our favorite products in every category to help put a little spring in your step. (See what we did there?) Happy spring!
No joke: Cold winter weather can do a number on your skin. Thanks to the low moisture levels in the air, your skin may feel drier—and look duller—than it usual. Come spring, though, you may be able to get away with using a lighter moisturizer—but you may also want to incorporate products that can help brighten the look of your skin into your routine as well.
Use a gentle cleanser. Regardless of the time of year, gently cleansing your skin is always a good idea. If you’re looking for a product that you can use on the go (let’s say you’re planning for a spring break getaway), it’s time to get familiar with micellar water. Micellar water is a French-favorite, no-rinse gentle cleansing option that is powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from the skin. The L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, the L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes, and the L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies. Just saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water of your choice and wipe it across your face.
Swap your heavy cream for a water-based moisturizer. While the bustling winds and constantly dropping temperatures of winter may require you to use a heavier moisturizer, springtime is all about shedding the heavy layers—yes, even when it comes to your skin care. So, when it comes time to pick a new moisturizer for the new season, consider trying a water-based one. The L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe water to help provide long-lasting hydration.
Add peel pads to your nightly regimen. Are you so over dull skin? Girl, us too! The solution could be as simple as adding one more step to your nighttime skin care routine. The L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads are formulated with glycolic acid to help exfoliate dead skin cells on skin’s surface. The pads can immediately help make skin look brighter while helping skin look more even with continued use over time. After cleansing, gently smooth a pad over your face. Just keep in mind that alpha hydroxy acids (like glycolic acid) can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so be sure to apply a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or higher in the morning before sun exposure (don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a product pick below!).
Slather on a broad-spectrum moisturizer with SPF. Wearing broad-spectrum SPF is a skin care must year-round—even on rainy spring days. That’s because—hate to break it to ya—you can still get burned on cloudy days. Sunscreen should be the last step in your skin care routine—after cleansing and moisturizing—but you can opt for a moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum SPF to save time. The L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Lotion SPF 30 is formulated with glycolic acid, vitamin C, Pro-Retinol, and broad-spectrum SPF 30. Apply it 15 minutes before going outside, and toss it in your tote so that you can reapply every two hours. Oh, and don’t forget the sunglasses! Whether you’re a cat eye or aviator kind of gal, it’s time to start rocking your favorite accessory whenever you’re outside.
While you don’t necessarily need to chuck your winter makeup faves, spring’s a great time to make room for brighter colors and luminous finish products so that you can match your face to the lifted spirits of the season. From foundation to mascara to lipstick to blush, stock up on some of our warm weather-approved must-have makeup products.
Try a luminous-finish foundation. Bye, bye heavy formulas! The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Cushion Foundation offers luminous, buildable coverage in a cushion compact. All you have to do is gently press the applicator into the foundation cushion and tap the applicator onto your skin. Feel free to keep repeating this process until you reach your desired level of coverage.
Get your lashes to really stand out. Sure, we love black lashes as much as the next woman, but now that the weather is looking up, why not add a little color to the mix when it comes to mascara? Cobalt blue lashes have been seen on lots of runways lately. You can achieve this retro-inspired, eye-opening look with the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Cobalt Blue.
Embrace bright pink lipstick. Of course red lips will forever be a classic—and nudes will always be a go-to. But when it comes to the perfect springtime pout, nothing works quite as well as a bright pink lip. Need some inspiration? Try the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in Fearless Fuschia. Kiss, kiss!
Dust on some blush. Want to create a gorgeous rosy springtime flush? Add the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Blush to your arsenal. With four pretty pink shades, you can customize your look easily. For a natural-looking flush, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks (and make sure to smile while doing so!)
Say goodbye to neutral eye shadows. No, you don’t have to stop using neutral shades forever. But every once in a while, it’s OK to say “see you later” to them in favor of rocking a brighter statement eye. Want a vintage look? Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Aqua Aura. Want to get in on the peach eye trend? Pick up a tube of the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Sunset Fire.
Ditch your black eyeliner. The same way we told you to step outside your mascara and eye shadow comfort zone, it’s equally as acceptable to wear vibrant eyeliner colors during the warmer months of the year. Try the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Vivid Aqua, Intrepid Teal, Electric Blue, or White Party. So gorgeous!
Now that you’ve refurbished most of your beauty routine, don’t forget your hair! Why not try a totally new way to cleanse your hair (hello, cleansing balm!) and use the warmer weather as an excuse to take a break from the heat tools?
Stock your shower with a cleansing balm. Who says you need to use a traditional shampoo and conditioner? Cleansing balm is totally on-trend these days—and for good reason. The L'Oréal Paris EverCreme Cleansing Balm has six benefits in one: It cleanses, conditions, treats, detangles, softens, and adds shine. To use, apply six to eight pumps to wet hair (you may need more if your hair is longer), massage gently, and distribute evenly throughout your hair until it’s fully saturated. Leave the cleansing balm on for three to five minutes, then rinse. That’s right—you’re good to go! You don’t need to follow up with conditioner. Pretty neat, isn’t it?
Air dry your hair. Give your flat iron, curling wand, and blow-dryer a break this spring and air dry your hair instead. Spring is the perfect time to embrace your hair’s natural waves and curls (if you’re able to add a flower crown to your look, even better!). When your hair is wet, apply an egg-sized dollop of the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse, using your fingers to distribute it through the lengths of your hair. Another option: Spritz on the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to towel-dried hair, then braid your hair to help create waves. Make one large braid for looser waves or a few smaller braids for tighter waves. You don’t need to be near the beach to try the beachy wave trend!
And there you have it. You’re officially ready to change up your beauty routine for spring. From switching out your moisturizer to trying bright new makeup hues to keeping your hair curly, we hope you’ve found plenty of spring inspiration right here.
