you’re making me blush

It hits me every time this time of year rolls around…. I just need some brighter colors on my face. I need something new in my makeup bag.

But there are so many options out there and if you’re like me you’re not made out of money.

I HATE getting makeup that I will wear once or twice before seeing a photo of myself wearing the horrid lipcolor that I thought was so awesome… or finding that I hate how a certain lipgloss tastes.

So… Here are some Go to brands and colors for blushes and glosses that would be PERFECT for Spring and purchases that you will use for the months and if you’re like me years to come.

Brights and Neutrals are really IN this spring.

So….. it only makes sense that a fresh pop of color on your cheeks paired with a nude/natural lip color would be a perfect look for the coming months. (now, once you start getting more color from the sun… then we can break out the bronzer and brighter lip colors! Hopefully, I’ll have some recommendations for you come summertime)
