I recently found this list: make up blogs with the skin tone, hair & eye color of the writers.
I noticed there are almost no blondes with green eyes - surely we are not that rare a bird!
Since contouring is becoming such an important part of make up I think one of the easiest ways to contour is to use self tanner.  I like the Jergens Natural Glow in Fair.
Then, you can use your bronzer for all over color & highlighting.
I love this soft lavender bag.  Ever since I purchased my LV Noe, I have enjoyed the bucket style bag ~ though I tend to overload it!
This color will be wonderful thru fall. (It's a Kate Spade)

I have been on the search for the Milani Rose Blush but cannot find it.  It will last me for eternity because I use so little - it should be available at CVS but it has not been at any that I have visited. This is such a lovely rose color.

I recently read this article and saw myself!!!

My one wish is that corps would not change the formulations of the prods I love!     Then I would not have to hoard!    Some things don't need improvement.
This color is Creamy Natural which is a perfect match for my winter skin.
 Here in the South most of us grew up on Krispy Kreme Donuts  - now, I prefer to pick up a box of hot ones when I am in town, but for those of you who love to bake, here is a copycat recipe for you to try:
Since it's the weekend, I have to bake ~ carrot cake muffins!
I'll save you some!

    Please stop by, jess xx

  2. Love that lavender bag! Now that I'm older I have kind of a pink touch to my cheeks so I don't use blush anymore. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  3. I think the self tanner would provide a better look than the other ways of contouring. Thanks for linking up at Who's Wearing What Wednesdays at Pastries, Pumps and Pi!

  6. Love Jergen's Glow. I use the dark tone and mix it with body lotion for more moisture and a nicer smell! Thanks so much for linking up with Fun Fashion Friday!
