I am neither light/medium nor tan/deep but these colors spoke to me. The base color in the light/medium palette is a perfect match for my … Continue reading Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette X2

Blush Tour 7/24/2017

I have a love/hate relationship with blush. Even back in the 90s I wasn't a fan of the heavy sunburned cheeks look. Slowly I've started experimenting with a bit of it here and there, trying to figure out which colors I like best and working on placement.
