Spring Beauty Favorites featuring Herpecin

Now that we are well in to Spring and it is finally starting to feel that way I have compiled a few of my beauty favorites thus far. Spring is always the time I clean up and refresh my beauty routine. It is still a bit on the chilly side here so I like to keep in a few Winter staples (like my Herpecin Lip Balm!) while brightening it up with pops of color in my makeup. Here are my current favorite beauty products for Spring!

Highlighter game goes strong in Spring. I just love pretty, fresh, glowy skin. I like to combine both liquid and powder highlights depending on how glowy I want to get. Liquid's are more subtle and you can add a little bit in to your foundation. While powders give you full on strobe power.

Tarte Pro Glow in Stunner is a subtle soft champagne that you can use anywhere. I love mixing this in with my foundation for a dewy look. For serious wattage I use FENTY Killawatt to up the amp on my highlight. Adding shine on the tops of cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and inner eye corners. FENTY Beauty Killawatt Highlighter duo in Fire Crystal. is seriously like crystal's on fiyah. So pretty!

Herpecin-L Lip Balm got me through Winter with out any chapped lips or cold sores. I love this stuff! It's perfect for that in between time in weather when we want to keep our lips hydrated but also protected from the sun. Herpecin relieves dry, chapped lips, helps prevent sunburn on lips, and helps treat and relieve cold sores/fever blisters.

Herpecin is safe to use every day to help relieve and protect painful cracking of lips and promotes healing without numbing or drying. It is uniquely formulated with dimethicone for protection, and sunscreens to help guard against the sun's harmful rays.

Cold Sores can happen anytime of year, not just the Winter months. Sun exposure is one of the main culprits in getting a break out. There IS something you can do to help treat and relieve your cold sores. Herpecin L is a unique, pharmacist-recommended* product for the treatment, protection, and relief of cold sores, sun and fever blisters. This lip balm is fantastic! It is more hydrating than other lip balms. Herpecin gives me the moisture I need along with added SPF protection. The smooth, almost undetectable formula wears really well under lipsticks too.

An all-in-one blush palette like the SIN Afterglow Highlighter Palette from Urban Decay makes my list because it covers all your bases. This six-pan palette contains three shades of highlighter and three pretty Spring blushes. I love cocktailing the two blushes together and popping SIN Afterglow Highlight on to my cheekbones, cupids bow, and inner corners. PSA and Paranoid make awesome eyeshadows too. I pop Paranoid in to the crease and PSA on to the lids for a warm bronzey eye look.

Bring on the May flowers. Floral is my jam in Spring and that includes skincare. Winter is still peeking its head in around here with lows still dipping in to the 40's overnight. That means my skin is still acting a bit dry. FRESH Rose Deep Hydration Toner & Face Cream are remedying dryness while enveloping your senses in the most glorious scent of fresh roses.

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner is a cleansing toner that removes impurities and refines the appearance of pores for a deeply hydrated, healthy-looking, velvety soft complexion. There's even rose petals inside the bottle! Not only is it a fantastic toner, but also pretty to look at. I like adding this toner in my nightly skincare routine and using it as a refresher throughout the day.

Fresh Rose Face Cream is a lightweight gel-cream infused with soothing rosewater and nourishing rose flower oil that delivers intense moisture for petal-soft skin. Time-release hydropatches, angelica leaf extract, and an advanced combination of hyaluronic acids form a protective moisturizing veil to help attract and seal in moisture for a full 24 hours of intense hydration. This luxurious cream has the lightweight feel we seek during the Spring with the intense hydration my skin still craves as it recovers from Winter. It really is the perfect transitional moisturizer. My skin feels so soft, hydrated, and it smells absolutely beautiful.

A liquid metallic eyeshadow makes the eyes look so fresh and awake. I love the Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow's. One swipe of color gives a beautiful glowy or glittery lid. It looks so understated and minimal while packing a a bright eyed punch. My everyday shade is Kitten, a soft glowy champagne pink. Rose Gold Jezebel looks like molten metal it is stunning.

Last but not least is lip color. This metallic liquid lipstick from Pretty Vulgar in shade My Lips Are Sealed is one I reach for almost every day. The liquid lip color is the prettiest mid-tone pink with a metallic champagne finish. I love this on its own and popping it on the center of the lip over pink and coral lip colors. The metallic finish feels so fresh compared to all of the matte liquid lipsticks of Winter.

Do you take an special precautions to protect your lips in the Spring/Summer? Would you add Herpecin-L to your lip care routine? I would love to know!
