Switching things up for spring

I don't know about you but I really like the change of seasons and the opportunities it brings for playing with different colours and textures.
Spring is here, and while the weather has been a bit pants this week, I've gone through my stash and have changed around my makeup wardrobe. Here's a few things that I like to switch up for spring.
I'm certainly embracing pastels this year, more so than ever before. Clothes-wise I'm still a bit shy with these ice cream shadess, but I'm certainly rocking them on my nails. L'Oreal's Perfection Colour Riche Les Blancs are a great way to wear pastels, and have quite an opaque finish after two coats. I'm especially loving Nouvelle Vague and Peach Neglige.
Lip crayons
These are everywhere now and it doesn't seem like that's likely to change anytime soon. I particularly love Revlon and Nars' offerings and what I love about these is that they are so easy and fuss free to swipe on. They don't last forever, but fade pretty evenly and you know that you're not going to end up with it smeared across your face when it starts getting a bit warmer.
Coral and orange
As it gets warmer I tend to start veering towards brighter colours. As well as bright pinks, I find corals and oranges really flattering. My go-to orange nail has to be Chanel Holiday, and I cannot get enough of the Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow Blush in Tansoleil. This is such a lovely colour and really gives a nice healthy glow. I do tend to wear Nars Luster all year round as its just so damn lovely, but if I fancy a bit more of an intense colour I'll go for the KA or Stila's Convertible Colour in Gerbera.
Do you change things up for spring and have you tried any of these?
