I shop for makeup like I’m at the supermarket. Each month I do a monthly cosmetics haul. First, I go to Ulta and check to see which products I haven’t tried and might want to try. Next, I check to see if there are any new products that have come out yet. I do the same thing at Sephora, by the way. Some months I alternate because they each may have different campaigns running. Finally, I go through all of my stuff and decide which products are best for me during the particular season. If it sounds borderline compulsive, it is! Then next month repeat!
This month I was looking through all of my Summer products and realized that I had the same color theme working in my stash. I tend to gravitate towards hot pinks, berry, purple, and reds. I love color. The problem is that I like loud color and I should be changing a little based on the seasons. For Summer, in particular, I should be wearing more nudes, soft pinks, and pastels. After all, what could it hurt?
After looking through all of my lipsticks, I decided that I needed to add some seasonal makeup goals to my routine. After researching the trends, I decided to invest in a few Spring-ish looks on my next Ulta run. Here’s what I plan to try more of this Summer:
- Play with colorful eyes.
- Add a little glitter.
- Glow with a lot of highlighter.
- Nude pinks on the lips.
- Blush with rosy cheeks.
