Spring is beautiful, without a doubt, but it’s also that time of year when allergy season rears its ugly head. If you have sensitivities due to Springtime or even in general, you may want to consider tweaking a few products in your beauty arsenal.
What’s worse than red eyes? Replace your eyeliners with a completely natural formula. 100% Pure uses fruit pigment and natural oils in Long Last Liner for a creamy application and about 4 hours of wear. You will need to reapply, but it sure beats the alternative. It’s also completely comfortable in the waterline, if that’s your thing.
Another gentle eyeliner option comes from Ecco Bella, who uses vegetable waxes and plant derivatives in formulation. What this means for you is: no burning, no irritation, and no itching. The shade options are and there is something for everyone.
The waterline trick reigns supreme when dealing with seasonal issues. Many beauty brands caught on to this trend and have come out with their version of the nude pencil, but 3 Custom Color Clarifier Pencils boast the trophy. They come in two shades, Light and Medium Clarifier, which may seem standard but is actually quite genius – no two skin colors are identical, and that includes the skin on the waterline. The result is a wide-awake look that makes whites of the eyes look brighter. Clarifiers are extremely pigmented and you only need one swipe for good color payoff – because of this, sharpening is a rare occasion, giving these pencils a long life.
The under eye is delicate and thin, so special care should always be taken in this area – not just this season. Use a product with a natural ingredient deck, like Honest Beauty Depuffed Eye Gel. It contains an amazing formula utilizing chamomile and calendula to soothe the skin, but its cooling metal-tip component allows you to really feel the magic as it happens.
Dry lips is a prevalent issue for many, but the solution is simple. It consists of daily care in the form of lip masks and balms, but can also be managed with good-for-you color cosmetics as well! Swapping your conventional matte lipstick for a product like Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick in Rikki leaves dehydrated lips soft, plump, and cared for. Pair it with Spice Lip Liner and you have yourself a dupe of the coveted Candy K lip by Kylie. For on-the-go touch ups, keep a chubby stick like Honest Beauty Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Peony Kiss with you. These lip treats are hydrating and work like proper skin care while looking pretty, too.
