The Beauty Of Spring
This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Neutrogena and Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions are my own.
When Spring finally arrives it's almost as if a new beginning is starting. We're shedding our layers in more ways than one. No more having to wear heavy coats on top of sweaters and scarves. We're also shedding those dark colors the cold naturally drives us towards. That's the beauty of Spring. It has an effect on us on so many different levels. From the way we feel, dress and carry ourselves.
As Spring begins my makeup and beauty routine changes. I start using products that will help rid my dry, dull skin and make it glow. Neutrogena has a been a favorite beauty brand of mine for some time now. I'm mostly drawn to their skin care products because they always work on keeping my skin clear and are equally affordable. For this Spring time I think it's time to give more of their makeup products a try as well.
The makeup looks I'm drawn to are ones that are effortless and bring out your skin's natural radiance. Neutrogena was perfect at helping me create just that. Here are the main products I used:
Nourishing Long Wear Liquid Makeup -- This foundation was a PERFECT match. I used the shade Fresh Beige and also loved that it contained SPF 20. Having my face products already contain SPF is a huge help for me, especially when I'm in a rush and don't have time to apply sunscreen. This foundation provides 12 hour coverage while improving your skin's texture and skin tone each time you wear it. The coverage is also great. This foundation toned down redness and uneven skin tone for me, without a cakey look. By the end of the day I was a bit shiny on the t-zone, but that's nothing a little setting powder can't fix.
Crease Proof Eyeshadow -- Normally I reach for a powder eyeshadow but I was pleasantly surprised at how easy to use this shadow was. Glides on effortlessly and really does not crease. I do recommend applying an eye primer before applying any eyeshadow for a long-lasting effect. The shade I tried was the Forever Platinum.
Healthy Volume Mega Mascara -- They had me at mega. This mascara definitely delivers volume and I love it as an everyday pick. It's available in three shades, I went with Carbon Black.
MoistureSmooth Color Stick -- This color stick is going to deliver a sweet color with a pack of moisture. I love when products deliver more than just one pro. I have the Sweet Watermelon shade.
What I'm looking forward to the most this Spring are rosey cheeks that make you glow. Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I love a glowing complexion. The proper skin care routine and makeup products will help you create that any time. I'm looking forward to wearing soft colors that still makeup an impact.
