Whew! There has been so much good makeup lately.
I mean, I used to get more excited about moody fall colors, but this year the spring and summer collections have been incredible! Literally, every time I turn around, I’m seeing another gorgeous collection.
If your head has been spinning a little like mine, then I hope you’ll like my picks for some of the best spring/summer makeup launches. I’d also love to hear yours.
I think I’ll start with lips, because I think a new lipstick or gloss is probably the easiest way to update your look.
First up, the , and I have the shade called Double Tap (here are swatches of the full range in this post).
I’m wearing cool-toned nude Double Tap in these pics, but I usually go for warmer-toned peaches and pinks. Thing is, this mauve is just so pretty and different from the rest of my stash. It’s opaque and not sticky at all.
Next, , and I just mentioned the shade called Swinger in my roundup of my favorite liquid lipsticks, so I’ll be brief now: the color and formula are AMAZING. This one is perfect for summer.
Of course, I couldn’t talk about this season’s new launches without mentioning beautiful .
Here’s a snap of me wearing it from my .
And I can’t forget to add the I’ve been reaching for these sheer and shiny moisturizing glosses (Apri-Cute is shown here) constantly.
One of my favorite collections this season was . I think all of the Soft Serve Eyeshadows are awesome, but the ones I like best are peach Cushy Life and mint green Jealous Girl, both of which are easy to pop on for a soft wash of color and sparkle.
Along those same lines, I also reach for metallic yellow gold a lot, which I talk about in my . It’s also a breeze to use but a bit more dramatic than the MAC Soft Serve Eyeshadows.
is also a fave. It’s a very subtle satin mauve/pink, and I’m wearing it in the picture below to softly define my eyes.
Wattles was part of ColourPop’s spring collection from a couple months ago ().
My final summer eye makeup favorite is the Jouer Mermaid Eyeshadow Palette because Jouer totally nailed it with these colors! They’re so pigmented, smooth, and beautiful that I haven’t even brought myself to wear them yet!!
I’m so glad I stalked their website to buy it a couple weeks ago because it’s sold out on Jouer’s site now. But , and it’s supposed to also be coming to Nordstrom soon.
Now here are my top picks for best spring/summer face products, and I hope you like them as much as I do.
First things first, I have to include the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Palette because I LOVE it! — but it’s likely sold out right now. But if you’re curious, .
From recent blushes, I’m head over heels in love with .
I fell for it when I saw it on Jen in this post here and prompty went out and got it. It gives such a pretty, natural flush.
And you know I can’t forget !
This one is Camellia, but I’m a loving parent and won’t choose favorites amongst my children :-). You can see more swatches and pics in this post here.
As far as new spring/summer highlighters, my favorite is the .
Lots of brands have their own highlighting palettes, but this one’s cream-to-powder finish really stands out to me. Of course it’s easy to blend, but it also sort of dries to a powder finish, so it doesn’t feel too dewy or wet on my skin, and that’s a MUST for these warmer months.
If you’re looking for a new foundation, the best one I found this spring/summer is . I’ve worn it in a ton of my blog posts and haven’t found another one that’s this super lightweight and glowy (.
Alright, it’s your turn now! What have you L-O-V-E-D from this year’s spring and summer makeup launches?
