#BeautyInspiration: winter to spring makeup looks without breaking the bank!

Spring is in the air, but is it in your daily makeup routine yet? Switching up my look is always something I look forward to with the change of seasons, but with other things going on during the winter-spring transition (hello, spring cleaning and taxes!) it's often at the bottom of my to-do list. To help those of you who may be in the same boat, I've created 2 makeup looks using the same set of Rimmel products to show you how easy it can be to transition your look into spring While some of the product I used have been long-time favorites, I went to Walmart for an easy way to find the rest of the product I used! For a complete how-to, you can check out the video or picture tutorials below, but here are some general tips I use when making the transition:
  1. Matte isn't just for winter. Frequent readers might know of my love for Rimmel's Stay Matte Foundation throughout winter. It's perfect for providing the full coverage, matte finish that tends to be on trend for the season. But it doesn't need to fall by the wayside with spring! Rather than applying it all-over, keep the application to your t-zone - an area that tends to need some mattifying during the warmer months - while still letting your natural skin features shine through.
  2. Shift the focus on your eyes. During the colder months, I'm all about deep, sultry shadows to emphasize my eyes. While there's nothing that says you can't still rock a smoky eye on a summery night, you can still lighten up your daytime eye look without making them disappear altogether. The trick: layering your mascara. Rimmel's Retro Glam is a great mascara for doing so. The formula is thin enough to lengthen lashes without making them clump up with multiple layers. After a few coats, my peepers were still just as potent with soft, subtle colors as they were with deeper winter hues.
  3. Your blush is a multi-tasker. When you need a change-up from your go-to winter shadows, look no further than your favorite blush! Odds are it's brighter and more colorful than your everyday shadow choices, making it perfect for a bright, springy look.
How are you transitioning your current makeup collection from winter to spring?
