Editor’s Picks: Birthday Beauty Buys to Celebrate Spring

You're constantly exposed to a myriad of bright colors from flowers, easter eggs, fashion, and beauty that came through in all of my gifts as I grew up. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become much harder to shop for as I’m lucky enough to test drive some of the hottest shades and biggest beauty breakthroughs throughout the year and share. But I still can’t help but covet a few items from time to time. So to celebrate the first day of spring and my birthday, here’s my personal wish list of what needs to be on my vanity now:
