Heading out for spring break soon? I've got the perfect list of beauty tips to keep you looking your best no matter if you're heading to the beach or the city! Every year in March, there is a frenzy of students getting jazzed up to go to warm, island-like destinations to welcome spring and summer. This tradition became a "thing" once schools starting letting kids out for a spring holiday. A week off? Why not go to Mexico? San Diego? Something about an island getaway screams spring break to a majority of us, but hey, not all of us want to get in a bikini on the water. I know I would love to spend spring break in New York City. No matter where you plan to go, my top four beauty tips will get you ready for time in warmer weather. The majority of photos in this post were taken by Julia O Test.

Bright nails

One of the best things about spring break beauty is a fun bright nail polish. My favorite color is Haute in the Heat from Essie. More subtle colors are available if you don't want to be quite so bright, but I think it's so cheerful and fun. One of my favorite parts of the CVS beauty section is the Essie nail polish display because it's got so many options. There's definitely a shade for you!

The other thing I've noticed about Essie in particular is the fact that their polishes last longer than the average polish and the brushes are so much easier to apply perfectly to the nail. I have tried them all, and I've been focusing more on normal polish the past few months because gel ruined my nails. I wanted to be free of the salon, and I wanted to change the color up more often. Spring break is time to shine those bright colors, and I am not holding back this season!

Moisturized lips

Not only are these the creamiest, most moisturizing lipsticks, they also have great wear throughout the day. They give full coverage and have 18 fun shades. These are made with 100% natural ingredients like moringa and raspberry seed oils which are the reason these lipsticks are so moisturizing. Not to mention they moisturize for up to 8 hours, so you're getting the benefit of a legitimate lip balm (or chapstick for my chapstick lovers - looking at you Kelly!) in the form of a gorgeous lipstick.


Healthy hair

The Beauty & Planet Ylang Ylang conditioner was a brand new product I was introduced to just a few months ago. Because my hair needs a little extra TLC before and after any trip, I am a fan of a great conditioner to bring my hair back to life. This conditioner is phthalate-free, paraben-free, vegan and plant-based. Not only is it extremely moisturizing, it is good for you. Given it doesn't have any bad ingredients, it is going to ensure your hair doesn't get dried out and turns out shinier and smoother. If I spend too much time in chlorinated pools, the ocean or dry airplane air, my hair definitely looks a bit tattered after all the fun. This is why I like taking a conditioner that can heal the hair while I'm exposing it to so many environmental toxins.

Glowing skin

When it comes to spring time, I always want to add a little glow to my complexion. With these new L'Oreal Lumi Glamour Drops, you add a bit of highlighting pigment which helps to illuminate the skin creating a healthy glow. I don't look greasy or oily with this product, which is so important to me when using glow enhancing products. Some have made me look like a disco ball, because I already tend to have oilier skin than most. This is how I know I found a winner with L'Oreal.

These are some great spring beauty tips for sure. I can’t wait to actually see spring has arrived, oh my goodness! Here in NH we keep getting slammed with major snow storms.

I love the pink nail polish in the photo. That is a beautiful color and I bet it looks great on toes, too. This post has me longing for spring especially since I woke up to snow this morning!

I love Essie and that is one of my favorite colors. I am so glad spring is almost here. Great photos and tips!

I love that nail polish color! The Beauty and Planet Ylang Ylang conditioner is something I would want to try. My hair gets brittle and dry in extreme weather conditions.

I love all natural lip balms. And I love hitting CVS for my favorites! My favorite beauty tip is to use SPF sunblock.

L’Oreal Lumi Glamour Drops are the absolute greatest thing on this planet! I am excited to try some of the other products you recommended. I am definitely getting the beauty and planet conditioner. I love trying new hair products!

I love vibrant nail colors for spring break trips too! At the beginning of spring my skin is always on the dry side from winter, so getting a glow going is a great tip!

The Beauty & Planet Ylang Ylang conditioner definitely sounds good. I have to look for this product to try it out. At home I have 2 women who constantly straighten their hair or curl them with a hair press. I guess it will work in their case as well.

You’ve touched on all the essentials — healthy hair and glowy skin. Nothing like prepping yourself for a great summer look.

You have listed out some amazing products for skin care during the spring. I try to follow a skin care regime according to season too

This is some great advice for what to do for beauty when the weather is warmer. I love the idea of all the brightness.

I really want to try those Lumi Glamour drops! I always feel the urge to update my spring makeup collection. Totally checking out CVS.

Awesome tips for taking better care of yourself during Spring break. These are all lovely products to have, without a doubt.

I love bright nails too! Although, funny enough I like bright white for Spring/Summer too, especially on my toes. And I definitely LOVE glowing skin!!!

I have a Burt’s Bees lipstick and I love it! It goes on so smoothly and doesn’t make my lips feel dry and gross like a lot of lipsticks.

Having bright skin and healthy skin and hair are must-haves all year round. My beauty secret is that I apply only all-natural products to skin. Brights nails look really good for spring.

I love painting my nails fun colors for springs and summer! This post brings me back to my spring break years, great memories!

I’ve heard so much a bout this product and I always wanted to try one of these. I love all of them especially the lip moisturizer.

Pink is the only color I do my nails in LOL. Any other color just doesn’t look good. great tips and love some of the products

I am so looking forward to spring and to spring colours. Essie is my favourite brand of nail polish and that pink is one I have to go buy!

I am loving all of these beauty tips for spring. I love your nail color, I was on spring break last week lol. it is important to take care of your skin.

I love bright nails! Right now I’m wearing bright white – it’s my favorite for spring/summer, especially on my toes. I definitely LOVE glowing skin!!
