Although it may not feel like it yet due to the freezing temps outside, spring has officially sprung and with that a lot of newness is in the air. Not only are we spring cleaning our closets, but we are also making room for the new beauty products - hello color! - that we obviously need. From bold hues to that perfect summer serum, check out some of our favorite spring beauty products that we will *for sure* be obsessing over.
