The Great Spring Makeup Swap

Wave goodbye to your winter makeup and start your face fresh for spring.

On top of the thirty thousand other reasons to love spring, we get a chance to purge all of the half-used, semi-dried, off-shade makeup from the past who-knows-how-long and start over. It’s a little bit thrilling, isn’t it?


You’re probably feeling the strong temptation to run out and buy all of the same styles and brands you used last year. After all, they worked, didn’t they? But there’s also some part of you that wonders if you’re not missing out.

Hint: Probably.

Bonus hint: It’s ok, we’ll help you get the fresh start you’ve been looking for.


First things first: Set the stage for something new. No matter how you plan to add a fresh twist to your look, starting with Olay Total Effects CC Cream is a guaranteed win. It visibly smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone appearance and instantly enhances brightness.

Simply put, it’s the one beauty product I’d take with me to a deserted island.

Just apply liberally and blend ;evenly with your fingertips for natural, sheer coverage. You can use it alone or layered under your favourite foundation.


Transitioning from summer to fall is snap. Fall to winter? Even easier. But going from winter to spring?

“Tricky” might be an understatement.

Bless the lovely human being who created bronzer to make that switch a little smoother. For a subtle, natural, sun-kissed look, try COVERGIRL TruBlend Bronzer. Just sweep bronzer down your forehead, cheeks and chin in the shape of a “3.” Then sweep very lightly again down the top of your nose to complete the look.

Ta-da! Did you spend the morning under a beautiful golden sunrise?!


Remember being a teenager and hazarding your way through a few summers of having NO idea how makeup worked or whether you were doing it right?

(We know, eye shadow up to the eyebrow seemed like a good idea at the time…)

We’re not proposing anything quite so drastic. COVERGIRL’s TruNaked Palette is universally flattering, blending a mix of natural shades together so you’ll always look flawless.

Starting with these three tips for spring will set you up for an easy season of looking and feeling great. If you’re still feeling adventurous, share your latest spring beauty experiments in the comments below.
