Stay on Trend this Spring

Step up your spring look and check out some of the trends of 2021. - Interestingly, this spring brings a more natural cosmetic look. According to Business Insider, minimal foundation is what’s in this season. And while that sounds easy to achieve, it can be tricky because of all the products out there. It might make more sense to create your own unique skincare routine with items from MakingCosmetics.

We have an abundance of formulas and ingredients that will help you achieve the look and color you want. An excellent place to start regarding skin care is to exfoliate regularly. Exfoliating will buff away any dead or dry skin on your face, giving you a much smoother appearance. According to Dermalogica, those with oily skin might need to exfoliate more because desquamation, the body’s natural exfoliation process, can be slowed significantly.

Exfoliation & Hydration

While exfoliating the skin can be a good thing, according to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, it’s important that you use an exfoliate that is gentle on your skin. We suggest trying our SkinBarrier Exfoliating Gel formulation (No. 1587). This formula is made with a blend of apple juice, peach juice, wheat seed extract, and other powerful ingredients that will help moisturize the skin. Additionally, it has EXF-JOBDS-01Jojoba Castor Beads in it – a gentle but effective exfoliator.

After you’ve exfoliated, it’s important to moisturize. According to Happi Magazine, this is so vital because as we age, we lose collagen in our skin. And without collagen, wrinkles begin to form. By the time we turn 40 years old, we lose about 1% of collagen each year. We have a plethora of moisturizer formulations to try at MakingCosmetics. A great one to look into specifically to reduce wrinkles is our Anti-Aging Face & Décolleté Lifting Cream (No. 1045). It’s formulated with SkinTight AP, which tightens the skin and protects skin cells from oxidative stress. This formula also has SkinLift DPHP, an anti-wrinkle and firming agent that has been found to stimulate the synthesis of collagen fibers.


Now that your skin is feeling hydrated and rejuvenated, it’s time to add a light layer of foundation to enhance your skincare routine. It’s recommended to opt for a liquid mineral foundation formula. And while there are many foundations out on the market right now, it might be more effective to make your own. That way you know everything going into your foundation and can make it unique to your skin type and skin tone. Try making our Fluid Mineral Makeup Medium Coverage foundation (No. 1063). It’s a little heavier than what’s suggested for this spring, but it has a lightweight feel and blends extraordinarily well. You can also blend it with moisturizer for a customized lightweight feel.

For those who live in a humid climate, the natural cosmetic look can be perfectly achieved with our Mineral Makeup Kit. You can customize the color to your preference. Perhaps a tad darker for summer and lighter for winter. Add one layer for a barely-there look or add additional layers – it’s up to you!

Once you’ve applied your foundation of choice, take it one step further by adding a hint of bronzer for a sun-kissed look. Our Loose Shimmer Bronzing Powder formulation (No. 1596) can be used on the face, eyes, legs, or anywhere you want a bit of shimmer. It’s super customizable too. Reduce the Earth Brown Pigment blend for a more transparent look or increase for a deeper, bolder look. However you decide to incorporate these trends into your spring look, you can make it uniquely you by making your own cosmetics.
