I’ve noticed some people seem to be scared of bright colors, or stick solely with neutrals. Well, not me! I decided to break out my Cold Heart Sugarpill palette. My make-up skills are rusty, so I chose to use only two colors, Tako and Afterparty and made them the centerpiece of my look.
I received at least a dozen compliments today between people at church and at the store afterwards.
Side note: These pictures were taken after I got home. My lipstick was gone because I did not reapply it. I also cried (nothing terrible, I’m just sensitive :p) so my mascara ran a little because it wasn’t waterproof. But everything else stayed put!

I noticed my face routine is now MAC concealer, MAC Studio Fix, and Elf Hi-Definition powder, just because it’s quick and stays put pretty well even in the heat. The concealer even minimizes the freckles under my nose that I’m self-conscious about.
I’m super happy with how this came out and will definitely be wearing more bright colors this summer! Do you wear bright colors year round, or do you tend to wear them more in the summer?
