But meanwhile I have needed to distract from my desire to change my hair, by changing some other things.
Make-up and accessory things.
- My number one thing this season is- Pearls. I have a pearl necklace from a wedding I was in years ago and wore it recently on a whim. It's not white/cream pearl, but more like rose and amber pearls (or this). I think it contrasted nicely with my hair, and picked up tones from my skin and eyes. I got compliments and a few glances. I feel it added a subtle "something" lol. I will be adding more of these pieces to my spring shopping haul. I always thought the texture of kinky/curly hair to be similar to lace, and we all know that lace and pearls are sexy together :-)
- Second, I am still digging lip stains. Cover girl lip stain to be exact, which I already posed about. With the weather warming it's great to be able to set it and go- throw some gloss on top... done for 12 hrs. I want an orange color though- and they don't quite have it. I'm looking for a similar stain that has what I want.
- And then- Green eye liner. I have hazelish eyes. Mostly brownish grey, but sometimes they can be a little greenish. I always used a complementing color (Purple or Orange) to bring out that hue, but I discovered that when I use green I can play up the grayish color pretty well. I want to cut down to two color palates with my makeup- so an orange lip and green eye as my primary day look and then alternate with my purple eye and brown lip. I usually carry much more than that, and I have a bad habit of not doing my makeup at home but rather at work- if at all.
So what are you ladies looking forward to for spring?
