Hellooooooo Spring

Well Spring, it's been a long time coming but you're finally here! It's 80 degrees out and sunny today, and I could not be happier (well, I could do without the allergies, but you can't win 'em all). Since 99% of my wardrobe consists of dresses, the warm temperature means that the majority of my clothing will now be weather appropriate thank goodness.
I don't know about you, but for me the warm weather means spending a whole lot more time outside, which means a change in the beauty routine. The past few days I've been keeping my own routine very minimal for several different reasons. One big difference to my routine is the addition of waterproof mascara. In the Fall and Winter I rarely wear waterproof mascara because I find that it's the ultimate hassle to remove at the end of the day. Unfortunately it becomes a necessity in the Spring and Summer because I have absurdly bad allergies. Seriously, I opened the window today and my eyes started tearing up like I had watched Marley & Me again.
Anyways, my trick with waterproof mascara is to use regular mascara and then swipe a layer of waterproof mascara over to seal it in. This has worked out well for me because it gives all the benefits of regular mascara with just one layer of waterproof mascara. The mascara I've been using recently is Clinique's High Impact Mascara, which is wonderful, and then I use layer of  Maybelline Lots of Lash Waterproof Mascara on top.
For the rest of my face I've been using the amazing combination of my NARS Tinted Moisturizer and Laura Mercier Illuminating Moisturizer, which have become my unbeatable duo. These two act like they were made for each other, and together provide light coverage to my face with a glowing, dewy finish. And that's all without being greasy or shiny looking! I then brighten up my eyes with my much-loved Clarins Instant Concealer and moisturize my lips with the lovely Maybelline Dr. Rescue Baby Lips.
Finally I finish up the look with some blush. While my love for Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush will never die, recently I've wanted a bit of a change and have been using Bobbi Brown's Blush in Peony. It's a lovely hot pink and, as expected from Bobbi Brown, is a wonderful quality. It adds a superb flush that's perfect for Spring!
