Say goodbye to winter makeup

Get ready to say goodbye to pale skin and heavy foundation. With spring on its way, we're sharing our picks for products that compliment warmer weather. From eyes to lips to cheeks, check out our best beauty bets for spring.

Say goodbye to winter makeup

1Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted MoisturizerFace

This spring is all about fresh, clear skin -- so rather than piling on heavy foundation, we suggest going with a tinted moisturizer. Choose a formula that blends easily and provides just enough coverage to even out your tone. We love Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer ($40) for its ability to improve the look of skin while making it seem like we're not wearing makeup at all. Apply concealer only where you need it most (around the nose, under eyes) and you're ready to face the day.

2Tarte natural cheek stainCheeks

As the snow starts to melt, trade powder blush for a gel or cheek stain to give your skin a healthy, natural-looking glow. Our pick for pretty cheeks is Tarte natural cheek stain ($30), which is easy to apply and looks really natural. Opt for Blissful (a warm, peachy pink) or Flush (a sheer berry stain) for that perfect outdoor-inspired glow.

3Say goodbye to winter makeupEyes

If you want to try some of spring's bolder hues for eyes without attempting something over the top like neon orange, Urban Decay offers lots of eye-popping shades. Some our favorites from the Matte Eyeshadow collection ($17) include Electric (a matte peacock blue) and Purple Haze (bright purple).

4Clinique Color Surge Butter Shine LipstickLips

Because lips are also a main focus this spring, we skipped over gloss and chose a lipstick that's sure to give your lips new life. Clinique Color Surge Butter Shine Lipstick ($14.50) is the perfect product for painting your pout. The creamy, rich formula lasts and keeps lips moisturized. Try Cranberry Cream or Crushed Grape for gorgeous, look-at-me lips.

5DiorShow MascaraLashes

No beauty arsenal is complete without a way to achieve long, lovely lashes. Our pick for mascara had to be something that lasts and adds thickness and curl. We love DiorShow Mascara ($24.50) for enhancing lashes while giving them a lengthening boost.
