W+B | Spring Is In the Air

It's hard to believe, but it actually feels like spring is in the air. Finally. And that means we all want to spend more time outside, and less time in front of the mirror getting ready. As your makeup routine lightens up, check out these four products that are current faves for a quick but polished look.

This BB Cream from MD Solar Sciences ($39) is life changing. It has an SPF of 50 and works perfectly as light coverage at the beach or as a primer under makeup. It's light as air and leaves no trace of grease behind. I use the medium/dark which is really not very dark at all.

Seriously, this is the perfect eyeshadow (Cyprus by Nars, $25) and it's all you need for that clean, glowy look.

There's not a hint of orange in this smooth as silk BareMinerals Bareskin Sheer Sun Bronzer ($38), which is more serum than straight up liquid. Mix it in with your foundation using the Limited Edition Bareskin Perfecting Face Brush ($30) or use your fingers to blend it over cheekbobes. Either way it gives a perfect glow.

You don't need a mirror to apply this Chantecaille Luminous Lip Gloss ($34) but the colors are just enough to brighten up your spring look, and there's nothing sticky about the high gloss finish. I love the Framboise, but you can't go wrong with any of them.
