Pop of Red

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

A couple months ago, I saw this post on Cupcakes and Cashmere. At first I was a bit adverse to the look, I mean such a bold color with no makeup to make less severe? Would not look good. But then this nude face look started popping up everywhere, but namely JCrew. And I thought, hey, I’m stylish. I can look like a JCrew model, or at at least copy their makeup.

I also braided my hair to give it some waveee. But I really liked the end result! Minimal makeup for lyfe <3.

That Natural Dewy Look


This weather is wreaking havoc on my skin. The weather has finally gotten a little colder, that is if you consider 55 degrees cold. So it’s a little colder, and considering that California hasn’t seen any real rain for the past year or so, it’s pretty freakin dry too. Consequently, my skin is producing mass amounts of oil trying to compensate for this dry weather (I may have done some Googling to find this answer) and I’m breaking out like crazy. Also it makes my bangs look greasy by midday.

Which is why I’m daydreaming about beautiful dewy skin. Guess you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.

Paved paradise and put up a parking lot.

Anyway, I’ve compiled a full makeup set that’ll give you a natural, dewy look guaranteed (probably).
