Beauty: Spring 2017
Posted on May 05 2017
Warm weather calls for an overhaul of not just your wardrobe, but your beauty collection as well. Springtime calls for more sunscreen, lighter makeup, brighter colors, and skincare that’s tailored for days in the sun. A few simple products are all you need to help your beauty cabinet transition into spring. These all-natural, cruelty-free products are easy to use, ensuring that you spend most of your time out of the bathroom and in the sun.
Skincare for a flawless foundation
Cleanser: Warm weather has the tendency to make skin oiler than usual, and switching up your face cleanser is the easiest way to combat that. Mattify in one simple step with a daily cleanser that gently exfoliates without drying skin.
Try: Kani Botanicals Geisha Cleanse – 100% vegan and organic, made with licorice root and jasmine for brightening
Masks: It isn’t news that face masks are the biggest trend in beauty today – but with so many out there, it’s important to make sure you choose the one that’s really benefitting your skin. For spring and summer, try using a deep-cleansing mask that helps with acne, oiliness, and shine that can come from sweat.
Try: Kani Black Magic Charcoal Mask – made with kaolin clay and white willow bark for a deep clean
For the body: Spring clothing tends to show a lot of skin, so make sure you’re taking care of your skin and prepping it accordingly. Try an invigorating body scrub to polish and hydrate your skin.
Try: Mac’s Smack Invigorating Body Polish in Elevate - made with coffee grounds for a smooth finish
Makeup that keeps things simple
Lips: Make a bold move and try an unexpected (but very on-trend) lip color like orange. Pat the color onto your lips for a soft look, or swipe on directly to make a statement (seen at Jason Wu, below). Keep the rest of your makeup minimal and light for the freshest possible look.
Try: Tarte All-Natural Quench Lip Rescue in Coral - for a sheer, hydrating formula
Bronzer: Skip the tanning and get a sun-kissed glow with a luminous bronzer. Tap it onto your face around your cheeks, hairline, and jawline and you’ll look like you’re glowing from within.
Try: Kani Coco Bronzer - infused with cocoa butter and coconut oil for satin finish
Eyes: Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2017 left no doubt in our minds: gloss is in. Not just for lips anymore, a glossy eye is a simple way to elevate your look without breaking the bank. Try it by itself (like below at Monse Fall 2017), or use a primer, any eyeshadow of your choice, and top it with a gloss for an easy, on-trend look.
Try: C.O. Bigelow All-Natural Rose Salve – for a multipurpose product perfect for eyes and lips
