Spring is here! Raise your hand if it’s your favorite season. After a whole winter spent indoors, we can’t wait to finally venture outside. For some of us, this spring season also coincides with the end of a serious lockdown, which means finally going out and interacting with the world. For others, social distancing and mask-wearing will still be an essential part of life, but at least we’ll be able to meet up with friends for socially distant walks, picnics, or hikes. No matter what this new season holds for you, we hope you’re ready to celebrate the warmth and color of spring. Our editors curated an exclusive Spring Beauty Edit, to help you throw off the yoke of winter and get into the spring spirit!
