Bright Color Trouble

And by that title I mean the lack of. As stark as the above picture is, it's just as beautiful to me. I have a thing for landscapes be they lush and green or stripped and stark. I also have a thing for neutral colors that I just cannot seem to let go of...

Browns, tans, greens, khaki...I just can't get enough! I wear neutrals and earth tones allll the time despite the fact that yellow and orange look awesome on me. There's just something so effortless about neutrals and Cheetah/Leopard print though. I'm also guilty of matching my makeup to my outfit...

I love neutral/natural makeup. Too much color on my face makes me think I look like a clown. Perhaps because I haven't mastered colorful makeup yet. What I have mastered is moss green and brass! I LOVE that combo...

I've also pretty much mastered my eyebrows and blush application...

Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector (Fawesome stuff!)

Most of all, I'm learning to master my self. I can be very self-critical and more often than not, I don't give myself nearly enough credit. Though still in my box of neutrality, I love this look and think the colors are quite complimentary. This look won't win any street style awards for being daring or avant garde, but that's okay...I'm still learning. In the meantime, I'll keep working my way closer to that "edgy style" precipice and eventually jump off...
