While spring cleaning your house probably isn’t all that fun, cleaning out your makeup bag in preparation for the new season is a whole lot more exciting! It’s time to ditch those cakey mascaras and almost-gone eyeshadows in favor of the new products that everyone’s clamoring for this spring. Here are five items that should definitely make it onto your beauty checklist.

  1. Colorful eye makeup
    Whether it’s electric blue eyeliner or pastel green eyeshadow, colorful eyes are a must-have accessory for the upcoming season. Feel free to experiment when you’re applying it!
  2. Nude lipstick or lip gloss
    Since you won’t want to overshadow your fabulously bright peepers, nude lips are the perfect accompaniment. Delicate shades of peach, pink or nude are all acceptable.
  3. Volumizing mascara
    Harper’s Bazaar magazine notes that lush lashes are huge this spring, so amp yours up with a super-volumizing formula that will coat each and every eyelash.
  4. Candy-colored nail polish
    What’s more appropriate for the season of Easter candy and flowers than a candy-colored manicure? Choose pretty pastels with a milky, opaque finish to be most on-trend.
  5. Tinted moisturizer
    For a fresh, dewy face, skip the heavy powder or liquid foundation in favor of a light, breezy tinted moisturizer. You’ll get plenty of coverage without the obvious “I’m wearing makeup” effect.

My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
