Can you feel it? Spring is in the air and with it comes the craving to sample the latest makeup trends and products. Jmore’s beauty expert Ariel Lewis is more than happy to indulge you. She’s compiled some suggestions for the season’s smartest, most sophisticated and sexiest looks.

Go ahead! Beautify yourself!

First Things First

When the weather warms, it’s a pleasure to peel off those extra layers of clothing. Likewise, your spring beauty regimen should include regular exfoliation to peel off dead skin cells that have accumulated during the cold winter months.

Try: Exuviance Performance Peel AP 25. Created by the same folks who developed the formula for the glycolic peels performed in dermatological offices, Exuviance reduced fine lines and wrinkles in 100 percent of the people who tested it at home.


Nothing says spring like soft pinks, peaches and nudes. For a fresh and flirty profile, apply a rosy hued shadow to your eyelids. Then modernize your look by topping it with a splash of iridescent gold!

Try: Natural Love Eye Shadow Collection by Too Faced

The gluten and paraben-free palette includes 30 of the brand’s most popular shades from matte to shimmery to all-out sparkly.

Tarte blush

Glow On!

The right blush can bring warmth and radiance to your complexion.

Try: Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Sensual. This powder blush with true-color mineral pigments gets you glowing with just a sweep of the brush. Its long-lasting formula keeps you looking fresh and glowy for a full 12 hours, even on the warmest April days.



OPI nail polish

Nail It!

Spring style isn’t only about your face. A seasonally sensational nail polish shade also makes a strong statement.

Try: OPI’s I Am What I Amethyst or Sun, Sea, and Sand in My Pants if you’re up for a contemporary, playful look.

Try: OPI’s No Turning Back From Pink Street, if you favor a bold, bubbly magenta hue.


Lip Lust

Whether you opt for a bold matte lipstick or a sheer, moisturizing gloss or balm, show your lips a little love with one of spring’s pink, peach or purple shades. Neutral metallic shades are also hot this season.

Try: Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm in Berry if you prefer a sheer, neutral product.

Try: Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored, a universally flattering shade of red, if you fancy something more dramatic.

Hairy Situation

Winter weather can wreak havoc on your lovely locks. Give them some TLC by adding a mega-moisturizing product to your cleansing and conditioning regimen.

Try: Oribe’s Gold Lust Pre-shampoo intensive treatment. The newest product in Oribe’s Gold Lust Collection, this unique formula moisturizes and repairs damaged tresses with coconut, macadamia, argan, sunflower, and almond oil and energizes hair follicles and scalp with a Bio-Restorative Complex, including Caffeine, Biotin and Niacinamide,
