Hello Spring! Hello new beginnings, longer days and blooming flowers. Winter has to be one of my least favourite seasons, it feels like except the fluffy snow there’s nothing to love about it. Finally days will get longer and hopefully it will get warmer too. Since spring can be associated with new beginnings, it is all about starting fresh, it is time to revamp the routine. Spring revamp can be fun, are you gonna be doing it too? What are your Spring essentials? 

There are so many things to do for the new beginnings, things that would make you feel fresh. Cleaning the wardrobe, getting rid of the things which aren’t used for years , changing the routine which we have been used to for a long time. Changing small things can make a big difference, change is a good thing! As the season changes, essentials change too and I think this is the fun thing about the seasons. Adding some Spring Essentials to the routine shouldn’t be fun, right?

My Spring Revamp 2016 – Beauty Bits Everyone Needs

Change the Scent

It is time to leave the strong woody/spicy scents behind and lean towards to more fresh, maybe floral scents depending on your mood. Even if you’re not quite ready to start with fresh ones, DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom can be a perfect pick. It is a mixture of fresh and woody notes and perfect for spring revamp. What’s your spring scent?

Softer Skin

Winter can be really rough to the skin. Heavy body lotions and moisturisers are the only way to keep the skin soft and dry flake free. Once it starts getting warmer, I like to change my body lotion and skincare products too depending on my skin’s needs. For body products, having something light is what I prefer, instead of heavy thick creams. Do you change your skin/body products depending on seasons too?

Pastel Nails

Since Autumn we’ve had enough of berry and dark nails, now it is the time of pastels. Pinks, blues, rose quartz, there’s a colour for everyone in 2016. If you still haven’t found your perfect colour, then you should check Pantone’s colours to see the trends colours and add some of these colours to your nail polish stash or you can check out my post Pastel Nails.

Bright Lips

Like with the nails, berry dark lips trend can be left behind. Spring is here, freshness and brightness should be what we focus on. Nude or bright lips, it is all about the way you feel comfortable, also sometimes it is best to leave your comfortzone and try something different. If you’re a nude person, then try bright pinks.

Pink and Highlighted Cheeks

Pink/peachy cheeks are perfect for natural makeup, also these are perfect spring colours. A little touch of pink can give such a nice finish. Strobbing is still a trend this year, if you haven’t tried it before, maybe you can watch some YouTube videos and try it yourself. It actually doesn’t look bad at all, glowy fresh looking skin is flattering.

Layering Mascaras

Have you ever used two mascaras to finish of your makeup? In order to achieve full looking lashes, you can give it a try. You can use one for lengthening and on top of it use something for volume. It is something I’ve been trying for awhile, you can actually see a difference!

I hope you are as happy as I am that Winter is officially over, well it might not be warm but I’m sure we will get there. As I told before, small changes can make a big difference in life. Let’s change one habit, one routine what we are hooked up to. At least this is what I am planning to do this season. Is there anything you’re planning to change? What do you think about Spring revamp? Are you gonna be doing it too? What are the trends you want to try?

Though, I’m loving the cold weather as always! <3 Moreover, thank you for these tips! I think I can apply it myself since I live in a tropical country 🙂

    • I can’t resist mascaras, when there’s something new I end up getting it and having so many unused 🙁

  • Lauren Letizio

    love this! So excited for Spring too, although we have pretty good weather year round it is still exciting that it will stay lighter longer. I got my nails done over the weekend and finally went for a lighter color. Such a nice break from the dark colors I have had for the past few months. I have to try that mascara layering technique, sounds amazing!

    blame it on barneys

    • I wish our weather was the same, I wouldn’t mind not having freezing winter 🙂 Pastel colours are perfect for warmer seasons, I keep reaching to them and leaving my dark colours behind. Definitely try out layering mascara, it makes such a big difference xx

  • I’ve never layered mascaras before. I’ll have to give it a try! Thanks for all the tips 🙂

  • Nadia

    I like the whole revamp idea, lovely! Nothing like a gorgeous pastel nail polish combined with a nude lip & a soft touch of blush that can make you feel like “Yup, it’s spring, people” 🙂 I love that days are finally getting longer. Even though I dread the clock change but it will mean more sunshine so it’s a win. Hope your week has started off great, honey!

    YES Time to get my Kenzo flower out, which is my scent for warmer months 🙂

  • Esraa Bassiouny

    I have never used to mascara’s before, but will sure give it a shot.

  • Ela, I am loving the idea of a spring revamp! I am so in the mood to try new beauty products and improve my skincare routine after a long winter. I started by learning contouring technique and dry brushing every morning:) I love the results!


    • I’m happy that winter is finally over, can’t wait for warmer and longer days. I change my skincare and makeup routine and go for something lighter. I’m learning contouring technique too, also try out strobbing too 🙂

  • I definitely use my brighter polishes more in the warmer months! I do wear dark colours in spring/summer, but not as regularly as I do in winter. Same as I do with my wardrobe actually, haha!

    Away From The Blue Blog

    • Since it is Autumn there, you can wear berry colours 🙂 I’m happy that cold days are almost over!

  • I never thought of changing scents for different seasons would be a thing, but it sounds like a great thing to do :3


    • I tend to change my scent all the time. Woody scents for colder scents and floral fresh scents for warmer days 🙂

  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    I love the idea of updating the beauty wardrobe for spring! Honestly, I’m a dark colours girl all year round, and I don’t think I could ever pull off bright lips or pastel nails, I just don’t think they’d suit me! I do however like to rotate my perfume wardrobe depending on the season. Like you said, spring is all about fresh scents, and I’m glad to leave the heavier, woodsy perfumes behind. That DKNY fragrance is lovely and I have it too, but I prefer the Golden Apple edition from the same range – it’s fresh and yummy, and smells like mirabelle plums! <3 Hope you're well, lovely. x


    • I used to think the same, however once you wear it a few times it might change your mind 🙂 I’m sure bright lips would suit you and bring out your eye colour more. DKNY Be delicious range has some lovely scents, I like green one too.
      Have a lovely week, dear! x

  • It’s Autumn here now but I agree with everything you said about Spring! Changing scents is always the first thing I do at the start of every season. I love fresh floral scents for Spring and more woody scents for winter. I’m looking forward to bringing my berry lips out!

    Sally – DiagonSally

    • I am the same with scents, I prefer woody scents in a/w and floral for spring/summer. I love autumn and berry makeup 🙂

  • I love Spring, the longer days and bright sunshine with it still be a little on the chilly side. It is my fave time of year and I agree that I tend to change up my body lotions and perfume too 🙂

    Pams Stuff and Things

    • Finally days are longer and it is not pitch black when I get home 🙂

  • I am focusing on bright lips. It gives such a summer spring look 🙂


  • Spring is my favourite season! And although I’m a massive fan of dark, vampy nails and lips I’m more then ready to embrace the pastels 🙂 And I also change the fragrance for a fresher, more flowery ones 🙂 x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    • I love Autumn more however Spring is still one of my favourite:) I can leave berries behind and go for pastels 🙂 x

  • I love changing up my fragrance and adding a little color when it comes to my nail polish 🙂
    Spring is definitely one of my favorite times of year 🙂
    Thirteen Thoughts

    • Spring is one of my favourite too:) looking forward to wearing more pastels 🙂

  • My spring revamp means going for a matte eyeshadow (all about the shimmers during the winter because party season), having long lashes rather than voluminous lashes, and a fresher lip colour. I was all about berry tones from October onwards but I’m changing it up for pink tones now. Also a less matte base. Basically my whole makeup routine gets flipped on its head as the seasons change.

    Sophie x | Essential Twenty

    • It sounds perfect! I was wearing black berries constantly and now I finally left them behind. Spring is all about natural look for me so I can’t wait to start doing all these! x

  • I love what you put together! I do the same thing. It’s like a change in wardrobe 😀 Bring on the new things!

  • I’ve just had a spring clean of my makeup/skincare products and I feel so much better, hate it when it gets too cluttered! Love your tips, definitely things that I switch up in my beauty routines also, as I opt for lighter foundations, pastel nails and add more pinks into my makeup looks x

    Beauty with charm

    • I also need to sprig clean my stuff, I should get rid of the unused ones and open a space for the new ones 🙂 x

  • I definitely need to repair my skin after this harsh winter. It has left my hands feeling so dry. I like using almond oil or a heavy moisturizer. Love your tips, have a nice day.


    • My skin needs to recover too, this winter was so bad and my skin got so dry!

  • My scent is definitely the first thing I change for the new season 🙂 I love pastel nails too – probably my favourite sorts of shades! xx

    • Fresh scents for spring is my favourite 🙂 I love pastels, I can’t wait to wear them more often x

  • Anoushka

    Love this – I’ve already started bringing in blush cheeks as I quite like it for winter too! Definitely should try layering my mascaras – fab tip!

    Anoushka Probyn – A London Fashion Blog

    • I’m using more pinks on the cheeks. Definitely give it a try, ot makes difference once you find the perfect duo!

  • This makes me want to do a makeup kit re-boot! I think that switching up both your moisturizer and your perfume is such a great idea! I’m going to try the mascara layering today- hopefully it will give me fuller lashes 🙂

    • Changing my scent is one of the first things I do when it gets warmer or colder:) you can enjoy Autumn and berry lips 🙂 x

  • I am beyond happy winter is officially over, as it’s definitely my least favorite season. I love the feeling of rebirth that comes with spring! I think the main things I’m going to change are my nail polishes and lipsticks! 😉

    • Winter is my least favourite too, even though it still doesn’t feel warm I’m happy that winter is over. I’ve already stopped using my berry lipsticks and nail polishes 🙂

  • Looks like they’re great products!





  • Thanks for this list Ela! <3

    x, Kat of Nested Thoughts

  • Yes pastel nails are my favorite way to change into the Spring season! I need to try out the mascara trick as well next time I do my makeup:)

    • Pastel nails are perfect for spring, there are so many options 🙂

  • I have never used multiple mascaras for my makeup! I guess because right I’ve kept it to a minimum and only own one haha. I switch my entire skincare routine around the springtime because the air changes quite a bit and therefore my skin doesn’t need as much moisture either!


    • I can’t seem to resist mascaras and I keep purchasing more than I should 🙂 I tend to go for lighter products depending on the weather, I don’t want to be too harsh to my skin 🙂

  • Pink and Highlighted cheeks are everything! Love the post doll x


  • Great post! Loving everything spring lately. Thanks for the list…

  • Nina

    I love changing scent in Spring , as well as pink/plum cheeks and pastel nails. The only thing I haven’t thought about is layering mascaras, and I will try that. Have a lovely day.

    • Layering mascara makes a difference once you find the perfect duo:)

  • I’m completely with you on being happy that it’s now Spring Ela! Winter has become so boring and the weather was really getting me down. I love the idea of making changes too, it will definitely make everything feel more fresh and new for Spring time. I have already changed my perfume actually, to a more fresh, sweeter one. I find that’s helped me feel a lot more happier for some reason haha. I really want to get using a pinky highlighter now, that sounds like perfection for Spring.:D

    Lovely post and suggestions!

    I can’t wait for it start getting warm. But I’m so excited finally the days are a bit longer and yes the fresh makeup look is all I’m looking forward too. Flow-y dresses, sandals/flipflops, sunshine, ahhh everything about spring and summer is exciting and makes me way too happy.

  • What a great post with some really great suggestions! It’s always great to rock a bright lip.
    Pink and highlighted cheeks is something which I love to opt for especially in Spring/Summer, it’s just a must do.

    As for fragrances I’m always wearing different ones, I love Chance eau Tendre for warmer months, it’s a very moorish scent.
