5 Upgrades to Make to Your Beauty Collection This SpringMarch 30, 2020
From refolding all of the items in your dresser Marie Kondo-style to rearranging your kitchen cabinets, spring cleaning can be supremely therapeutic. Unsurprisingly, one of our favorite tasks of this nature is organizing our beauty stash (which we will admit can get a little out of hand at times). Whenever we do this, we tend to focus our efforts on trend-based products like lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes, and gloss over our beauty basics (think: conditioner and foundation).

If you always find yourself racing against the clock when you paint your nails at home, treat yourself to Essie’s quick-drying formulation. It coats your nails in ultra-rich color and dries in a snap.
Chances are, it’s time to replace your foundation — whether it’s because you need a slightly darker shade now that you’re getting some sun, or because If your formula is on the verge of expiring, ditch it for the new Urban Decay powder foundation. It gives you the same buildable, medium coverage that the Stay Naked liquid formula provides, now in a silky-smooth, 16-hour wear powder.
Maybe it’s because we’re more on-the-go in the spring and summer months, or maybe it’s because the formula helps give us a To achieve a faux sun-kissed glow, we swear by gel-cream cheek formulas like Cheek Heat. It comes in six shades, each designed to give your face a flush of fresh, sheer color. We don’t know about you, but we plan on collecting it in every shade.
