Johnson’s Body Care 24 Hour Body Lotion is a lightly-scented lotion that we have been using that leaves our skin feeling amazingly soft and smooth from the moment we put it on. The non-greasy, hydrating formula is great for all skin types and the price makes it that much more fabulous. $5.49,

L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Mist is one of the best, not to mention inexpensive, self tanners on the market right now. We are definitely against the orange, Oompa Loompa look, so this is one you should reach for this spring— the formulation is meant to work with your skin’s amino acids to create the perfect complimentary skin color. And the fact that it’s in an aeresol can and has a no rub formula also makes this makes this very user-friendly. $9.99,

If you tend to stay away form blue eyeshadow because you don’t want to look like you’re stuck in a time warp, have no fear. It is ok to wear blue shadow, you just need to know what shade will suit you and your eye color best.

too faced Lockdown Ultimate Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow.jpg“Blue can be gorgeous or a little ’70s prom, so it must be dealt with cautiously,” remarks Too Faced Founder and Creator, Jerrod Blandino. “Brown eyes tend to look better in brighter hues like teal, peacock, or turquoise. Green eyes look great in a plumy or lavender based blue, (think iris or periwinkle), and naturally Blue eyes look best in navy or smoky cobalt.”

Our Brown eyes would love the New Too Faced Lockdown Ultimate Crealess Cream Eyeshadow. The formula combines deep metallic pigments with an anti-crease base to create the ultimate in staying power. Beautiful and long-wearing, this shadow is easy to apply and your peepers will be protected from dreaded creasing, fading, and smudging. $18.50,
