my collages & scan from April 2012 Elle
with each season, I'm trying to rethink the way I stock my makeup bag. now that the days are longer and I've replaced my boots with ballet flats, I'm shaking up my look. for day, I want to try lighter shades, maybe a little more blush than usual, and at night, cat eyes and fun lipstick. I loved the Vanessa Bruno interview in the April 2012 issue of ELLE, especially her advice about only having one feature made up at a time. that way you can experiment with new techniques and products without feeling too far out of my comfort zone. I really want to try fake lashes or the tangerine lipstick that everyone's raving about, but I also know that I'd be the talk of my little Vermont town if I tried them both at the same time. not that I really care, but it's nice not to feel too strange.
what are you trying this spring?
