Any beauty and style editor knows that a change in the weather means a change in your wardrobe and beauty cabinet. The best part about spring cleaning is getting a total refresh on your look.

Levi's Ribcage Boot Jeans
Levi's Ribcage jeans are the perfect fit for me: mid-stretch, super high rise, slim through the hip, and straight through the leg. It's like finding the ideal pair of vintage jeans without having to look. The bootcut option is a really nice option for when you want a bit of flair with the same overall comfortable vibes.
Estée Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Foundation
I love a breathable, radiant coverage option with SPF—and this one is climbing to the top of my list. It feels lightweight while still offering buildable medium-to-full coverage and blends together chia seed extract and vitamin E for added hydration and plumping. It covers any lingering redness, lasts all day, and keeps your skin glowing until you wash it off. Swoon.
Adidas Women's Essentials Fleece Sweatshirt
For all the times when you want to be comfortable, warm, and stylish at once: Meet Adidas' Women's Essentials Fleece Sweatshirt. The fleece is so soft, the logo is small, and the neckline and cuffs are ribbed. It's perfectly relaxed and oversized but still structured (which is everything I've ever wanted in a sweatshirt). Pair it with the Levi’s Ribcage jeans for the ultimate cozy-chic spring uniform.

NYX Professional Makeup Mechanical Eye Pencil - Aqua Green
There's nothing like a liner with a strong color payoff! This NYX Eye Pencil in Aqua Green gives exactly the pop of color that it promises from the very first swipe. As a statement eye aficionado, I always opt for liners that can help me create a bold look easily. At first, I was drawn to the brightness of this color but after application, I was especially impressed that the pencil glided easily over my lids without dragging. It's precise, pigmented, and wears a long time without smudging. This is the kind of liner that you need in every shade.
Clinique Cheek Pop™ Blush, 0.12-oz. - Pansy Pop
I never thought I'd be someone to experiment with blushes that aren't shades of pink and red but this Clinique Cheek Pop Blush really changed my mind. Pansy Pop is a light lilac shade that can build. At first, I applied a light dusting of the blush and noticed that the hue brought a natural pink flush to my light-olive skin. For a more dramatic effect, I continued building and was excited to find that this color had a very subtle lilac tint. This powder blush is super wearable because it blends right into the skin and overall gives a pretty natural look. Look out, because purple blush is definitely going to be popping up more and more this spring.

This tool is always my first step to a brighter, more “wide awake” complexion—especially come spring, my face gets a little puffy in the morning. There’s nothing like an at-home microcurrent for extra lift in as little as 10 minutes. We can’t all afford a daily facial, but this device is the next best thing.
Shiseido Clear Sunscreen Stick SPF 50+
I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but it bears repeating: Daily SPF is crucial. Sun protection is important for health, wrinkle prevention, complexion evenness, and a host of other skin concerns, so find yourself a formula you like to wear regularly. This is one of mine. The formula is clear, easy to apply, and not-at-all sticky. It even works on top of makeup (yes, really!) for all-important reapplication every few hours.
Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer
This multi-tasker is a cult classic for a reason. It’s super lightweight, but delivers the perfect amount of coverage for blemishes, discoloration, and under eye bags (basically, all of last night’s mistakes). You even get a little extra SPF, perfect for the delicate under eye and areas with hyperpigmentation. It’s on the pricier side, but in my opinion, 100% worth it. These sticks really last, so in terms of bang for your buck and effectiveness, you can’t beat this beloved icon from Clé de Peau.
