Look of the Month :: Spring 2012 :: May

Recently I have learned a lot about myself because of my first successful water fast. It was such a wonderful thing, and now I'm motivated to clean up my life in other ways. That of course starts with my makeup kit. I've been wanting to do this for a while now, and have even begun to use up products that I don't plan on repurchasing again. It goes hand in hand with my spring cleaning as well. As a minimalist, I love to have a clean open-spaced home with little to no clutter. So it's time to weed out the makeup collection.

Now, I do not condone throwing things away. If one feels the need to get rid of something right away then just give it to a friend or family member that might enjoy it. But for me I don't mind using them up myself. I will be ridding myself of some products that are old, not cruelty-free, filled with chemicals, not a good match for me, or that I have doubles of. So this look is created with those products, and it still stays on trend for the season. Nudes are huge this spring, especially a nude lip. Italian fashion is also taking the world by storm and we are seeing a lot of 1950's influences. Have fun! It's springtime!
