Spring Makeup Favorites – March 2020

stellar primer missha foundation benefit boiing concealer

I imagine most of us aren’t wearing much makeup these days, however, I still need to make the occasional grocery run. These are some of the things I love in my current spring makeup routine.

I’ve taken this opportunity at home to declutter some old makeup. In the process, I have rediscovered some things I had forgotten about. I also bought a few new items last month and I pulled out some old favorites that I would like to use up.

Spring Makeup Favorites

Stellar Brilliant Primer – My skin tone is fair with a cool-neutral undertone. This dewy pink primer gives my skin a subtle glow without any trace of shimmer.

The Original Tension Pact Foundation by Missha – Missha makes some of my favorite K-Beauty skincare and makeup. Their BB Cream is one of my favorites for fair skin. This sheer and luminous cushion foundation is lightweight, moisturizing, applies flawlessly with a sponge, and looks like skin. It gives my skin a gorgeous glow.

Benefit Boi-ing Concealer – I use this cakeless concealer with a light hand in the inner corner of my eye. It instantly brightens and helps me look a little more awake.

Smashbox Contour Palette – An oldie but goodie and bestselling contour palette is this terrific trio. All matte finish, the cool-toned contour shade is perfect for fair, cool-neutral skin tones. I don’t use the bronzer (middle shade) too often. The matte highlight and contour are longtime favorites.

Ben Nye Pressed Color Palette – I’ve had this palette for years. I used to travel with it more than I do now but I keep it nearby for 5-minute makeup looks. I also use the brown, gray and black shades as a root cover-up powder in between salon appointments.

MAC Painterly urban decay makeup favorites

MAC Painterly Paint Pot – My can’t-live-without eyeshadow base. Painterly is a pink-toned cream base. If you have a yellow undertone, go for the MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.

Shu Uemura Eye Shadow Palette – This palette is long discontinued however Shu Uemura eyeshadows are rich in pigment and buttery soft. You can now choose individual shades and make your own palette.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Pencil – One of my favorite shades, Crash, a brownish eggplant is now discontinued. Rockstar is similar. These pencils never drag on the eye and the shade range is awesome.

Milani make it last setting spray essence mascara gimme brow

Elf Eyebrow Pencil – One of the best beauty buys out there is this $2 eyebrow pencil. Mine has lasted for over a year. It’s great to save money where you can and one can’t beat this quality pencil at this price.

Benefit Gimme Brow Gel – An excellent brow gel is this one from Benefit. I found a sample in my makeup bag to use up. They offer an inclusive shade range and the tiny brush is the best.

Essence False Lashes Mascara – Essence makes my favorite mascara, Lash Princess, so I decided to test out their entire mascara lineup. This is the fourth one I’ve tried. I recommend it if you’re looking for a jet black lengthening mascara. I will definitely repurchase. You can’t beat the $5 price tag.

Milani Make It Last Setting Spray – This is an excellent makeup setting spray for the price. I prefer the experience of using fine mists that feel like a damp cloud. This one comes at you hard so stand back but the setting power is good.

spring makeup favorites Milani she's all that besame lipstick Mac lip pencil

MAC Lip Pencil in Nightmoth – For plum lip shades, I recommend this black-plum shade by MAC. Use it as a liner or fill in the lips and put a gloss over the top.

Besame 1930 Lipstick – I don’t wear this often because it’s quite bold but I’ve been rocking this vintage 1930’s dark plum shade lately. I adore the entire Besame lipstick range and would love to have one of each color.

Milani Ludicrous Lip Gloss in She’s All That – Most days, I reach for a gloss. I recently picked up this nude mocha shade. It compliments all makeup looks in a single step.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve discovered any new makeup recently.
