Today marks the first day of the 2021 spring season. Many also recognize this day as the Spring Equinox, the start of the Persian New Year – Nowruz Mubarak, Ostara, and Holy Hai, This means a little extra sunlight, spring cleaning, and a change in the earth’s elliptical orbit. For makeup enthusiasts, this means switching up a few products. Now is the time for that bright fuchsia lipstick, teal eyeshadow, and peach blush.
According to Vogue, fuchsia gets a good look because of its versatility. You can easily go from a light and prissy glam to a bold, dramatic display with the right bright pink. Paris recommends a little glitter and a matte base for a timeless spring palette. I can surely agree. I always tend to go back to my classic pinks or even peach tones to keep a cheery bright glow.
Burts Bees also recently mentioned a few makeup tips for the spring. Their twitter feed lit up with comments on ways to purge of your old makeup at the start of the spring. Their top spring essentials are products like the deep moisture bundle, lip shimmer, very volumizing pomegranate shampoo, lavender and honey hand cream, and satin lipstick. I instantly fell in love with the hydrating facial mist and love everything micellular.
Another line that launched a new collection just in time for the spring is AVON. Several twitter feeds featured images of the 3-in-1 palette with pastel colors like pink, gold, purple, and blue for the eyes and cheeks. I must say that these soft colors are my favorite and I enjoyed the touch of glimmer.
On a more serious note I am deeply saddened by what is going on with this hatred in Atlanta. It would be an injustice to not mention my concern and recognition of the connection that I have had with the Asian community through the years. I pray for healing and justice for all of those affected.
