An Expert's Guide to Spring Beauty

Ashley McNabb Artistry Spring Beauty Products

Like a new season calls for a new wardrobe, so too does the arrival of Spring call for a switch up in your makeup bag. To outfit our kits, we tapped longtime TSG Fort Worth member, Ashley McNabb of the eponymous — and highly sought-after — Ashley McNabb Artistry.

In preparation for a season of weddings, events, and vacations, Ashley shares her current favorite Spring products alongside tidbits of expertise earned over her decades of being a top makeup artist.

Come Spring, I like to lighten up products and colors to let skin shine. It’s a very “Clean Girl Aesthetic” approach. Of course there’s a time and place for dramatic, smoky looks, but my clients consistently seek me out for a no-make-up-make-up look that hinges on a radiant, blush glow. The products I’m turning to in order to achieve my signature look are travel-friendly and vacation-ready – perfect for the girl-on-the-go! I love the simplicity of products you can apply with your fingertips.

  1. LES BEIGES by CHANEL // A sheer, healthy glow highlighting fluid.
  2. BEAUTIFUL SKIN ISLAND GLOW EASY TANNING DROPS by CHARLOTTE TILBURY // For a post-vacation, no-vacation-required glow.
  3. SUPER SERUM SKIN TINT SPF 40 by ILIA // A hardworking, clean-beauty skin tint with all the shades.
  4. LE STYLO ULTRASLIM by CHANTECAILLE // In shade “Brown.”
  5. MARACUHA JUICY LIP BALM by TARTE COSMETICS // An all-in-one vegan balm with high gloss and great color.
