Hello dolls and Happy First Day of Spring!! In NYC, it doesn't quite feel like Spring just yet, but I'm hoping that my enthusiasm will invoke the warm weather gods who will melt away the cold and bring some sun shine our way. Wherever you guys are, I'm sure you're already celebrating in brighter colors, lighter clothes and an uplifted attitude. I'm with you in spirit, and today, I've lined up a fun, flirty Spring-time appropriate makeup look, inspired by my fave jewelry brand, Caviar Noir and its Spring Collection centerpiece: the Rosary Hand Chain in Turquoise. This piece is equal parts feminine, edgy and exotic, therefore it's the perfect muse for today's fresh look!
