springtime beauty!

special thanks to sheknows.com for the article

i am all about using beauty products and looking fabulous, while keeping it to the minimum. here in los angeles, the sun is shining and the heat is coming fast – do you know what that means? it’s time to reduce the use of makeup on our already-gorgeous faces. while i am all for mascara and lipstick, caking on the foundation and powder on a warm and sunny day is not attractive at all. sweat? no thanks. black streaks? hell no! i found an article on sheknows.com that has a list of fun and flirty looks in time for spring – and definitely california-friendly.
