'Spring Burst' Look
For this look I decided to go back to my roots with bright colors! You guys may have been missing the usual bright looks but they will be making a comeback especially as it starts to warm up a bit more weather-wise.
I wanted to do a video last night but alas my face would not allow it. I have terrible burn/scratch marks on my face from testing out a personal micro-dermabrasion kit for review (at least I know what to warn you about here). The burns/scratches hurt ALOT and gave me hell for daring to put makeup over them in the first place. I washed my face, applied cream and went to pout on my couch in pain. As soon as I feel better I'll do the videos. Thanks for understanding.
Hope all is going well with you guys and you aren't having as bad a week as I am so far!
