Spring Makeup: The Fresh Bloom of Spring with Purple, Green, & Blue

One of the most important things to do when doing a look with distinct colors is to be careful not to over-blend, which is really easy, because most of us put our noses to the mirror when we're checking to make sure we did a good...

Valentine's Day Makeup: It's the New Pink

Last night, I asked the late night Twitter crowd if I should do a colorful or natural look -- I was originally thinking about doing something soft and natural, but colorful was the voice of the majority, so I ran with it. I thought about it, and I decided...
