My Spring Beauty Faves

Spring Beauty Faves- Boston Chic Party-1

Happy Makeup Monday ๐Ÿ™‚ Today I’m sharing aย peek into the products that have made their way into my makeup bag and springtime beauty routine. This spring is all about glowing cheeks, bright lips, floral scents, straight hair and some strong brows. Here are my favorites for spring:

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron (c/o): I love a super straight and chic look for my hair, especially like to take advantage of it during the spring before it gets humid. I’ve been using this hair straightener from Irresistible Me multiple times a week since I received it. Not only does it straighten my hair beautifully, it also makes it feel smooth.ย  Added bonus? It heats up instantly which really helps me get ready faster in the morning! I also love using it for touch ups on dry shampoo days ๐Ÿ™‚

Nars Blush in Orgasm:ย With the start of the new season, I wanted to switch out my blush for something lighter, a bit peachy and with some shimmer. Described as a “peachy pink with golden shimmer”, Nars’ best-selling Orgasm blush was the perfect new addition to my makeup bag. It’s perfect for everyday use and I love the look it gives me for spring. Even more excited to try it out with a bit of a tan once I have one ๐Ÿ™‚

Bare Minerals Blooming Blush Brush: Spring cleaning had me wanting to replace some of my makeup brushes and so I picked up this blush brush, starting a serious love affair with it. Bare Minerals Blooming Blush Brush is the best blush brush I’ve ever used -it’s shape makes applying super easy and helps sweep the blush up your cheekbones. I’d highly recommend it for anyone looking for a new blush brush. Oh and don’t forget to clean your makeup brushes by checking out my friend Mindy’s DIY brush cleaner ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybelline Brow Drama Crayon (via Influenster): After hearing so many of my friends talk about how using a brow pencil changed their look, I was excited to get a chance to try Maybelline’s, thanks to Influenster. They were right- this little crayon fills in bare spots on my brows and makes them more defined for a sleeker look. Though I got my crayon courtesy of Influenster, I think the price point on the Brow Drama Crayon is reasonable enough to try for yourself!

Mac Lipstick in Chatterbox: Switching out lipsticks is one of my fave ways to refresh my beauty routine. I love the pink of this Mac lipstick- which you probably already knew since I’ve worn it here, here and hereย  before.It’s perfect for spring and will easily transition to summer too!

Gucci Flora Perfume: Changing up your scent is also a super easy way to bring something new in for the season. Gucci’s Flora has hints of citrus, peony and roses making it perfect for spring. It’s a super feminine scent which I love for springtime (and all year round too!).

Your turn- what made it’s way into your makeup bag this spring?

xoxo, Jenna

    I have loved that blush forever! My look tends to be ultra simple this time of year, with lots and lots of sunscreen, lip balm, night eye cream (Aveeno Positively Radiant right now) deep conditioner, and waterproof mascara.

    I always enjoy seeing what products others are using. I received that pencil as well and have been enjoying it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love how bright and fresh these colors are! Blush is one of my musts before heading out the door and I’ve been on the search for a new brush! Will have to check the one from Bare Minerals out ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing Jenna!

      I am loving the addition of a brow crayon to my routine- totally makes more of a difference than I was expecting!

    Absolutely love that blush!! I use the same one most days ๐Ÿ™‚ You may have convinced me to buy that makeup brush!! I am so bad about buying good, new makeup brushes. It’s the one thing I really neglect in my makeup. oooops!!!

    • May 16, 2016 / 9:29 pm

      Totally can relate to that… it’s one of the reasons I bought this one! You don’t want to know how long I had my prior one before I replaced ๐Ÿ˜‰

    LOVE this, I also SWEAR by Nars blush! I never wore blush before that one and now I always do. Great picks!

      Blush is an everyday essential for me and Nars definitely makes the best! Thanks for visiting, Lauren!

    Thanks for this post girly! I am in need of new brushes and it looks like I will be buying this Bare Minerals one! Xo, Roselyn

    jenna–yay, i love beauty posts, the NARS blush is such an iconic staple, i just wish NARs would redo their packaging so that dust and everything else doesn’t get stuck to that dang rubber!! that’s my biggest gripe about NARS. and i love MAC lipsticks, i shall check out this color next time i’m at the counter. MAC is such a great brand and good price too. and aren’t rollerballs the best?! you don’t have to commit yourself to a full bottle! thanks for sharing girl. xoxo,

    Love these must-haves! I also have the IM flat iron, and you are right – it straightens and smooths like a charm! I typically wear waves, but when I want straight hair – I completely agree – spring is the best time to take advantage (very humid here in Northern Illinois as well!). I also LOVE Nars blush – it is the best, and you just can’t go wrong with Mac or Bare Minerals anything!
    Happy Tuesday, gorgeous!

    My makeup bag is full of bronzer in the summer, just to keep up the glow that I want to achieve and I also have lots of colorful lipsticks as well to try out. I loved reading this blog post and everything that you included. I need it all now!
