When I started writing the story, “5 Cult Classic Makeup Must-Haves For Spring,” for Makeup.com, I started thinking about just how revolutionary the cult fave items I included are. Think about it: Before tinted moisturizer like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, you really only had one choice for your foundation coverage: full. For some women, this just isn’t how they want their skin to look. Before DuWop Lip Venom, we never really thought about topically plumping our lips. Think of all the lip-plumping glosses that are out there now! Such revolutionary items serve to elevate the beauty product field, and they only come along once in a while. I think beauty innovation is definitely on the rise; we’ll be seeing so much more—and that is beyond exciting. But it’s hard to wrap your head around the question, “What more can we do?” This is what beauty manufacturers do every day. I imagine them at a long, long table, in some chic office, maybe they’re wearing lab coats. (This is the Hollywood version; I’m sure it’s nothing like this.) They’re huddled together, asking, “How can we improve a formula? What does the end user need? Or…really…what do we want to make the end consumer think she needs” (Hey, this is the nature of the business. We don’t know what we need until we’re told.)

Anyway, strange fantasies aside, I rounded up five makeup cult classics that are absolutely perfect for spring. Check them out on Makeup.com!
