My Pale Skin.

You’ve probably already watched this video, but if you haven’t I would encourage you to take a peek. Em Ford is a YouTube personality who specializes in her makeup tutorials. When I came across this video months ago, I was moved and disheartened by the kinds of things that strangers say to one another. She has brought to light the kinds of hurtful comments that she comes across on a daily basis and I think the video is a great way to show people that beauty comes from the inside but if you choose to wear makeup it is a way to express yourself! Makeup is a lot of fun and while I don’t experiment too much with my makeup, I have recently gotten into watching these tutorials and learning more about the exciting ways to update my look!

Do you experiment with your makeup? If so, what inspires you?

Plum Pop!

IMG_0752Brittany recently went to the NARS store to get matched with the perfect shade of lipstick. This season one of the best colors to wear is plums and purples, it really highlights all skin tones.


(Check out the NARS site here to see the different shades of satin lipsticks. However, you can visit any NARS counter or Sephora to have a specialist find the color that is perfect for you; it’s a lot of fun too!)


Do you have a favorite go-to brand for lipstick? We love NARS but for some cheaper options check out L’oreal and Maybelline, their colors last hours and are very bold!

Welcome to the Emerald City

Brittany and I are creative people who are influenced by a lot of things: candy, fashion, pigeons, but especially color. We tend to see things more clearly when they are expressive. We love the color green because it signifies nature, hope, wealth, and mint flavored M&M’s!

Green M&M's(These bad boys were 3 for $2! It hurt, but we ate ’em all!)

(We love the look of deep green nail polish)

(Brittany is wearing green nail polish, jade stone necklace, and green eyeshadow)

accesories(Jade necklace upclose and green belts make for a nice accessory)

green makeup(green makeup was applied in the crease of my eyelids and accented by a bold red lip)
Green cape(When the weather gets cooler, I love taking out my thick green cape)

(The weather was 80+ degrees a week ago so I was able to wear this green dress to work without tights, I forgot what that felt like!)

Green is a color that is subtle enough to be an accessory and also bold enough to be a focal piece. It’s various shades provide something for everyone so if you don’t have a strong green piece, we suggest you find one that you love because you can wear it in every season!
