    Are you looking for some new products for your makeup bag?

    Look no further. Here are a few of my favorite products for spring.

    Eye Products

    Right now, I’m loving a natural eye with a little bit of pop. I have been using the NYX jumbo eye pencil in the shade milk to put in my inner corner and on my waterline. The white liner makes your eyes bright and bold. There are many different colors of this eye pencil if you want to mix it up and use a blue or any other fun color as eyeliner. Bright colors are perfect for the spring and summer seasons.

    For mascara, my go-to is the Loreal Telescopic Mascara in carbon black. This mascara is very high quality for a drug store makeup product. It is a rich, dark black color that looks so good on my lashes. I highly recommend this brand, and there is also an eyelash primer you can buy from the same brand that makes your eyelashes hold their curl and mascara.

    Face Products

    If you have semi-oily skin like me, it is sometimes harder to find things that won’t make your face super shiny after applying a good primer, concealer, and other face makeup. But, I have found one after years of trying various primers. The Neutrogena Matte Primer Serum is an excellent choice. It is a liquid primer with the same consistency as a face serum, and it is designed to control the natural shine that oil causes on the face. This product makes a difference when I am putting on a full face of makeup and it helps to reduce the oiliness of my face. I love this primer, and as it gets hotter outside, a primer such as this one is excellent for sweating.

    After you are done putting on your makeup and need to set your face, you should use a powder or spray. I use both, but my favorite setting powder is the Airspun Loose Face Powder. It helps with oil control and is a lightweight powder that glides right onto the face. I use the shade honey beige, but they have several different colors. A setting powder will also be beneficial during the hot months coming up.

    When it comes to concealer, it can sometimes get confusing. Drugstore brands are some of the best, and a product that I constantly use is the Maybelline Fit me Concealer. With several different shades to pick from, this concealer is lightweight and has a great consistency. I use this product when I don’t feel like putting on a full face, but I want a little coverage.

    Lip Products

    Lip liner is something that I just started using. I wasn’t super familiar with the product, but I found a great liner the other day. The Physicians Formula velvet lip liner is a great option. I got the shade Pillow Talk, and it is such a pretty pink color. Lip liner is an excellent addition to a make-up routine. It gives lips more dimension, and I love this product so far.

    I’m not going to lie, I am a lip gloss fanatic. Chapstick and lip gloss is something that I never run out of. There are so many great glosses, but this Maybelline one, Lifter Gloss, is my favorite. I usually get the clear and light pink colors. This gloss has hyaluronic acid as one of the ingredients to help keep your lips healthy. I love this product. The shades are gorgeous, and it’s an excellent product for your lips. I highly recommend this gloss.
