Fresh Spring Green

 

 

So, excuse the chipping on some of my nails… I took these photos on day 3. Haha. (Which, I think, is pretty good for 3 days wear-time!)

I’m not a huge fan of cool colored nailpolish, especially green, but I really ended up liking this one!!

I used “the more the merrier” by Essie.

COCO Mademoiselle CHANEL PARIS: Pleasant Surprise!

So my aunt and I were discussing our favorite perfume smells.

I mentioned that I really like Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel Paris, and she said “Oh I have that one, and I don’t really like it. I never use it so you can have it.” WUUUT

So she gave me her bottle and I just saved $130! I’m a happy giiiiiiirrrlllll! (:

Thank You Jesus for precious little surprises and wonderful relatives!

Spring Fashion: Here Comes The Sun!

When I think of springtime, I think of a few colors: light pink, baby blue, lilac, and soft yellow:

My Blush Picks (+Swatches)

Here are my blush picks! As you can tell, I prefer rosy pinks, and my trusty peach color by MAC…

IMG_3286

1) MAC Matte Powder Blush in “Melba”

2) Avon Powder Blush in pink

3) Joe Fresh Cream Stick Blush in “Pink Rose”

4) Bourjois Paris Baked Powder Blush in “Rose D’Or” (Golden Rose)*

5) Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in 10 “Pink Frosting”

The cream and mousse blushes seem to be more flattering in the summer when I’m not wearing a lot of makeup. They blend in well with the dewy skin.

The powders all are great for winter, and I usually have a powdery base. The MAC “Melba” color, however, looks better with a tan in the summer.

It still works in the winter with certain outfits/makeup looks though. Pink usually works better for me in the winter.

The shimmer in the Bourjois and the Maybelline blushes look very dazzling and flattering in sunlight. But if overly applied, it would look “overdone” and too sparkly rather than lightly shimmery.

Blush makes all the difference. Pink, and some peachy colors, are for me! What’s your blush color?

Sunset On Snow

It can be so fun to play with vibrant colors, such as orange! It can really spice things up!

Subtle Smokey Eye

This is the perfect smokey eye for a day or night party. It’s a step up from natural.
