3 Spring Beauty Essentials For Busy Women

In my makeup and beauty obsessed opinion, there are a lot of spring beauty essentials, but in order to keep it simple, how about we just keep it to three. If I didn’t, you would read this post, and there would be like 100, which would be overwhelming and totally not do-able for most of the female human race. Also, I am drinking coffee…so if I sound hyper, I am.

When I think of spring beauty, it’s bright lips, floral fragrances, and sunny days that require my shades to make their way out of the closet. These three are also just the beauty trick to make people think I actually spent time on myself that day. Let me break it down for you. Bright lips paired with stylish glasses can instantly make you look cool while hiding the fact that you didn’t really do your makeup and your beauty sleep didn’t really happen. Wearing perfume just adds to the illusion that you are that rockstar person that always has it pulled together…even though the reality is that you did a quick sponge bath. I don’t know anything about that.

3 Spring Beauty Essentials

Here are my 3 Spring beauty essentials for busy women who want to pull off the trickery of looking like they cared that day.

  1. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Anime: This just might be my favorite bright pink lip product of all time. I like it for three reasons: 1) the pigment is super intense  2) the tube will last you past eternity and 3) it doubles as a cheek tint. In addition to my three reasons for loving this bright lipstick, it is a pretty affordable product considering the fact that you will have it the rest of your life. FOUND HERE
  2. Bella Vince Camuto Perfume: Every time I use this perfume, which is pretty much every day, I get compliments on it. So, let me introduce you to the new Bella Vince Camuto Spring Fragrance  that has the perfect mix of floral and citrus notes.  This “intoxicating bouquet” has nectarine blossoms, Italian bergomot, and jasmine making it a good choice for those of you looking for a new spring scent. In addition to the scent that makes people swoon…especially my husband….it comes in a gorgeous bottle that should be displayed. Also, the price tag is very reasonable. FOUND HERE
  3. Stylish Sunnies: In my opinion (which I obviously never lack) a good pair of sunglasses make the best beauty essential. Some might classify this as style, but when your dark shades cover your dark circles, it’s beauty. Check out my picks for sunglasses that are on-trend this season.
