February 17, 2023
4 minutes Read
Looking to change up your beauty routine for Spring? As the weather warms up (slightly) and Spring flowers start to bloom, it's time to embrace the light, fresh colours of spring and let the skin breathe with lots of hydration and lighter coverage.
Before you start adding new products to your makeup bag, take some time to declutter and get rid of any expired or old makeup. Makeup products have a shelf life, and using expired products can lead to irritation, breakouts, and other skin issues. Look for expiration dates on your products and toss out anything that's past its prime.

We can’t lie, we do use Beauty Base all year round, but as we have so many tones to choose from we like to switch it up with the seasons. Beauty Base Pearl is a team favourite during Spring, it leaves a naturally subtle pearlescent glow on the skin that leaves your skin looking polished enough for a no-makeup day or it acts as the perfect prep step before makeup. This SPF30 face primer hydrates, moisturises and protects the skin while conditioning with peptides and adding a stunning glow.
As the weather starts to warm up, you’ll want to let your skin breathe with light-medium coverage. That's where Second Skin foundation comes in. Naturally, a medium coverage foundation, Second Skin lets you customise your coverage by choosing how much or how little you add. One of the key benefits of Second Skin foundation is its mineral formula, this means it's free from harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients that can be harmful to your skin, so there’s less chance of irritation. Instead, it's made with good-for-you ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extract and antioxidants that help to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. It also protects the skin with SPF50 and is a collagen-boosting formula to give a youthful healthy glow.
The best part.. we have two finishes available dependent on your skin type and preference; Second Skin Matte and Second Skin Dewy. This means that you can tailor your foundation to suit your skin type and your personal preference. The matte finish is oil-free and perfect for those with oily or combination skin, while the dewy finish is extra hydrating and ideal for those with normal to dry skin. Plus, with 30 shades to choose from, you're sure to find the one for you.
Our Bare Basics palette is the perfect all-in-one palette for anyone on the go or for those who just like to have everything in one place. This palette includes a bronzer, blush, cream highlight and tinted setting powder to dress up the complexion and it also has 3 easy to use eyeshadows for quick and easy eye looks that can take you from day to night in an instant. Our Bare Basics palettes are versatile, travel-friendly, and available in 2 shades, Nude 01 and Nude 02 to suit a wide range of skin tones, making this palette a must-have for any makeup lover.
Cream Luxe Blush
Cream blush is a firm favourite of ours all year round, but especially in Spring as they just add a natural-looking flush to the cheeks and can double up as a lip product too. We currently have 5 Cream Luxe Blush shades to choose from that are super versatile and suit all skin tones. In Spring, we tend to lean more towards ‘Dusty Rose’ or ‘Pink Supreme’ for a fresh pop of pink. A cream blush can be intimidating for so many, but they really couldn’t be any easier to use. Simply blend onto the cheeks using your fingers or our Perfecting Duo Brush and blend blend blend until you’ve reached your desired colour payoff. If you apply too much, it’s so easy to blend it away, whereas with powder blush, that can prove to be a little more difficult. Add a Cream Luxe blush to your makeup bag this spring and enjoy a natural-looking flush all season long.
One thing we are not shy of here at Sculpted is GLOW, and what better time than Spring to introduce a new glow product to your routine? The key to the perfect glow is to apply the product strategically in all the right places. Generally, you'd want to use it on areas that the sun would naturally hit, so that would be your cheekbones, tip & bridge of the nose, your cupid’s bow and over the brow bone. It was too difficult to pick just one glow product for this so we thought we’d explore two options.
For a subtle glow, try our Cream Luxe Glow. This is a cream highlight that is perfect for those who are just starting their glow journey. Simply tap it on with your fingers and let it melt into the skin. It’s not shimmery and it is the most subtle & natural of our range.
For a little stronger glow, try our Liquid Lights highlight. This is a liquid highlight that acts as a skin-perfecting pick-me-up to catch the light in all the right places. It’s also effortless to apply and blends easily, just don’t be surprised if you start getting lots of compliments while wearing it.
