With the first day of Spring just a few days behind us, I can't help but get excited for all of the things that come along with it. I can finally put away my winter jacket and trade it in for white converse and bomber jackets! For makeup this spring, we can kiss goodbye to dark, gothic lips and smokey eyes, and say hello to pastels and pops of colour! The first big trend of Spring 2017? Blush! There's something so perfect about a rosy flush and glossy lips for spring that transitions perfectly into summer. Here's a look at some of the hot new cheek products we can expect for Spring/Summer 2017.
KYLIE COSMETICS- Pressed Blushes
There's no doubt that Kylie has been slaying the makeup game since she came out with her highly sought after lip-kits. Now that she's perfected kylighters, kyliners & kyshadow, she's created her next project just in time for spring. Her powder blush compacts come in five different shades: X RATED (subdued tangerine), BARELY LEGAL (soft baby pink), VIRGINITY (vibrant warm pink), HOT AND BOTHERED (bright pinky coral), and HOPELESS ROMANTIC (matte orange red). Launching only days ago, her blush set ($300) has already sold out on her website. But not to fear, you can still buy the individuals right now on www.kyliecosmetics.com for $20. I don't know about you, but I'm obsessed with this packaging and I cannot wait to get my hands on the shade barely legal.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS- Blush Compacts
With the launch of their custom lip palette & highlighter collab with Youtube star Nicole Gurriero, ABH has all of us makeup lovers drooling over their new products. Most recent, "@norvina," as we know her from Instagram, has teased us with the brand's newest soon to be must-have. From a sneak peak on her instagram story, we can expect these gorgeous blush palettes in the early summer. These blush palettes come with 3 different shades, which is perfect for transitioning your makeup into different seasons. Lighter shades for spring, and darker shades for when we've got our glowing summer tans! The wide range of shades make these perfect for any professional kit as well.

BENEFIT COSMETICS- Cheek Parade
This is one product I'm also really excited for! Benefit has officially covered all of our blush and bronze needs. This palette has 5 of their most iconic blushes & bronzers all in one. It also features their new blush shade "california" - a golden peach colour. This palette retails for $58- which is a steal for getting all of these full size products in one. Again, this palette is perfect for transitioning spring looks that use bright, rosy blushes - to summer, which is all about bronze and shimmer. It's available now on www.benefitcosmetics,com but everywhere else on April 7th!

These Duo Sticks by YSL are another hot, new product on the Spring 2017 makeup scene. They have a matte formula and are in a compact, lightweight, retractable tube. Perfect for us girls that want a low maintenance makeup routine with few products, or for the "on the go" girl who needs a product to take them from a rosy, monochromatic daytime look, to a vibrant nighttime look perfect for summer.
