As spring approaches and the weather starts to heat up, our glam starts to shift a bit. The dark lip colors and smokey eyes from winter turn into glossy lips and more natural colors. If you’re hoping to attain a glowy look as the seasons change, you’ve come to the right place!

Here are eight products that will help you attain gorgeous spring glam.

Clinique High Impact Mascara

Clinique’s High Impact Mascara will take your natural lashes to the next level! Improving on volume and length of every lash, the mascara is all you need for bolder, clump-free lashes. Not to mention, it’s safe for sensitive eyes and is 100% fragrance free.

Promising review from Ulta: Janice says, “This is my all-time favorite mascara. It stays on all day without falling off or smudging. Plus, it comes off easily at night with my facial soap and water.”

NARS Afterglow Lip Balm

The Afterglow Lip Balm from NARS is the perfect lip tint for a spring makeup look. With three different color options, the moisturizing product conditions and protects lips while adding shine and a natural shade. The balm can be used by itself or as a base for a more prominent lip color.

Promising review from Ulta: Elizabeth says, “I’ve been on the search for the perfect subtle lip tint that adds just the right amount of shine…and well, now I’ve found it. Perfect for the natural girl who wants a barely-there shine and color. Effortlessly beautiful.”

Promising review from Ulta: Molly says, “This product is so creamy and light and has the perfect amount of pigment. It isn’t too drying and goes great over any lip balm. I absolutely love this and will probably get it in more colors.”

Lancôme Juicy Tubes Lip Gloss

We all love a nice glossy lip! Lancôme’s Juicy Tubes Original Lip Gloss takes us back to the 90’s with its high shine and fun colors. With 19 different shade options, there’s a gloss for everyone. Not to mention, it’s super hydrating, smoothing and leaves lips looking and feeling their best.

Promising review from Ulta: Beckah says, “This gives the most beautiful glow that’s not too in your face. It’s a “natural” looking highlight that’s still visible and makes your skin look super healthy and glowy!”

Ilia True Skin Serum Concealer

Ilia’s True Skin Serum Concealer is a product we all need in our makeup bags. Perfect for days when you don’t want a full face of makeup, the lightweight concealer evens out skin tones, brightens the under eyes and covers up any blemishes. Not to mention, it comes in 20 different shades!
