5 Spring/Summer Beauty Products I’m Loving

Spring has FINALLY sprung & I could not be happier. Honestly, I feel like an entirely different person in the spring. Just as the flowers are blooming & the trees are regaining their leaves, I, too, feel rejuvenated. It’s incredible how much warm/sunny weather can boost your mood.

Along with the theme of spring cleaning (check my post about spring cleaning your whole life here), I’ve been itching revamp everything in my life. This has mostly come out as buying new warm-weather clothes and beauty products, oddly enough. In general, I’m not the biggest makeup/hair/beauty routine girl, but for some reason this year I’ve been dying to try new products to change it up. It resulted in a very expensive trip to Target. It happens.

Sooooo I wanted to do a quick post about the beauty products I’m currently loving this spring/summer. Have any recommendations for me? I’d love to hear them (leave a comment below!)

My Step by Step Skincare Routine

Ever since I was in middle school, my mom always emphasized the importance of a good skincare routine. She always said that taking care of your skin now will help it look great later on in life (and she’s right–mamma J has the most beautiful skin EVER). Of course, when I was ages 13-18, most of my skincare routine revolved around preventing zits (gotta love puberty), but now as a 25 year old with less acne (thank goodness), I’m more focused on evening out my skin’s texture, cleansing it thoroughly & minimizing the look of my pores. That’s why I’ve teamed up with HerCampus & Clarisonic to give you my simple skincare routine for perfectly glowing skin.

My 5-Minute Makeup Routine

I’ll be honest with you: I’m not a huge makeup junkie. I was never one to watch YouTube tutorials, try out a million different lip shades or spend $100+ in Sephora (although I see how that’s very easy to do). No disrespect to everyone out there who proclaims themselves as a makeup enthusiast–if you can do a perfect cat eye, I have mad respect for you. IDK why, but growing up & now in my 20’s, I’m just not that into makeup.

All that being said, I do like to wear makeup & wear some almost every day (because I’m not Beyoncé and do not wake up flawless.) It makes me feel pretty and put together so I have a very simple (and quick!) routine that I do every morning. I figured I’d share it with you because it’s ideal for the mornings you’re running late for work/school or you want to go with a simpler weekday look. The best part is, this routine is less than 5 minutes (I actually timed it this morning) and most of the products I use are under $10. So for the days that you rather get a lil extra beauty sleep~ vs. put on your face, try this makeup routine instead.
