The Spring Skin Edit.


It is April, which means spring is here.. or at least kind of here. I love to give my wardrobe a nice spring clean-out every year.. and maybe also splurge on a few new cute dresses (which I will show you in another post). BUT I feel like changing your makeup and skincare is equally important. 

When I think about makeup in the spring time, I see fresh and glowing skin, light colours and a natural finish. Even though this look sounds much easier than a full face of heavy makeup, it can be even harder. For a fresh and dewy look, you need the perfect base. By that, I don't mean that your skin has to be flawless. But your skin has to be in a very good condition.


1. Skincare is the number one step here. I have recently fallen in love with serums. I always thought this is an unnecessary step in my skincare routine.. but let me tell you: it totally changes the game! My serum of choice is the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum.  I use it every evening and my skin looks smoother, healthier and totally glowing the next morning. And this is exactly what we are looking for.

2. The next step is a good primer. This is another one which I always thought is not really important. I have to admit, in the winter months I sometimes skip this as my skin doesn't tend to need this and my makeup lasts quite well. But with the months getting warmer I always need some extra lasting power for my makeup. This Lancome La Base Pro Primer helps your foundation to last longer and also provides a much smoother base for your foundation and makes it look even more natural and perfect. 

3. Last but not least is the foundation. If you have a good skincare and primer routine, this is just the finish touch to your dewy and glowy spring look. I have very fair skin, which is also very sensitive so I tend to have quite a lot of redness especially around my nose and my cheeks. Therefore I always look for a medium coverage foundation which I can build up to a full coverage one for nights out. The problem with these foundations is that they tend to be very matte and unnatural looking. This is why I used to stick to various BB-creams, which never really gave me the coverage I wanted.. and then I found my new holy grail foundation: The Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. The perfect coverage but a luminous finish.. I am obsessed!

What are your top tips for a fresh and dewy face makeup?

  1. Serum is by far the most important step in my skincare routine and the ANR is my favourite as well! I'm really not good when it comes to applying primer on a daily basis, but this Lancôme one sounds really good, especially if it makes the foundation looks a lot more natural on.

  11. Love your list of products. I have used the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and it's amazing!! My skin is just healing from acne, so I love products like that that add back the moisture and hydration.

  20. If i'm honest, my skin looks the best when it's had a bit of sun. After a day outside on Saturday my face had a bit of colour to it and it looks fab . . . now how do I bottle that?!

  21. Your post was so great! Thanks as always for your helpful tips. I really enjoyed reading about how your skincare and make-up needs change as the seasons do. I am definitely discovering this myself as I pay more attention to my skin and how it changes with the weather :) Going into winter now, my regime is definitely different.
