If you’ve been wanting to try something new for Spring, try a wash of aqua and green (you see what I did there?). I saw super pretty and totally wearable aqua and green colored eyeshadow look on the runway and decided to duplicate one on myself using pigments from now defunct Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and Magnolia Makeup (both vegan lines). I steered clear of adding lashes and instead, played up my own with mascara. I think the look is fun, fresh, and playful, and able to be worn by people of all shades. Paring the eye look with a neutral lip and cheek keeps you from looking like a pastel nightmare or too childish. Yes, this is for grown folks. Tell me what you think in the comments below!
Until next time,

We are individuals. In the world of makeup, it is becoming increasingly harder to avoid all the images of everyone wearing the SAME look. Heavy contouring and highlighting, overdrawn eyebrows, and the requisite “duck lip” smile is what I see all over social media. These trends are causing normal-thinking individuals to somehow think they aren’t doing enough in regards to their makeup style, and that’s sad.
We don’t have to follow the trends to be beautiful. We don’t have to subscribe to the mentality that there is only one way to rock makeup, which includes 10,000 products (pure hyperbole but you get my point). This is my public service announcement for the week. Stay true to your own look. Be your own kind of beautiful, and if that means wearing just lip balm and a big smile, or a runway inspired look, own your “beautiful.”
Until next time,
