how a makeup artist refreshes her makeup bag for spring.

Finally Spring has sprung! This warm weather seriously makes me happy, and it also makes me want to clean and organize EVERYTHING! If you feel the same, and want to clean up your makeup bag, read on to see what I toss and what I add to freshen it up for Spring!


Old Mascaras
Old Concealers
Old Moisturizers


A New Lipstick 
A fresh new lipstick in a bright, fun colour will instantly brighten any makeup look (especially the lighter looks we tend to go for once the warm weather arrives). And chances are it will go great with that printed maxi you just bought ;)

Try: L'Oreal Le Matte Lip Colour Stick in "Matte For Me", $10.

Highlighting Powder
There's something about warmer weather that makes us feel glowy and happy, so why not add a highlighter to your routine to really make your skin glow.  

Try: The Balm Cosmetics "Mary-Lou Manizer" (I just ordered it from and am obsessed), $17.

New Mascara
To replace the one you just tossed! Mascara should be replaced every 3 months since it can collect bacteria from your eye area (which can lead to infection), and it also can get quite dry by this time which won't give you the best results.

Try: Too Faced "Better than Sex" for bold lashes $30, or L'Oreal "Voluminous Carbon Black" for a great everyday choice, $8.

A Fun Eyeshadow Palette
Be inspired with your eye looks by adding a new palette to the mix! Something wearable with a mixture of matte and shimmery shades, but don't be afraid of a little colour. Your NAKED palette got a workout this winter, so it's time to give it a rest and pick up something with pinks, blues, or golds (all very on-trend this season).

Try: Ciaté London "The Fun Palette" $42, or Urban Decay "Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette" $70. 

What is a must-have you are adding to your makeup bag this spring?
