My everyday makeup routine – Spring 2017

In my very early makeup days, colorful eyeliner dragged out to an exaggerated wing was the only look I would ever leave the house with.

Now if I have one beauty weakness… Other than red lipsticks, I mean. You can totally have two. Or maybe three.

But I digress. If I have one beauty weakness, it is anything in crayon form.
