Hey Everyone! Long time no see! Sorry I haven't posted since winter!! I honestly haven't been motived to create any looks and actually use makeup I've been purchasing for the past few months. I'm going to try and get back in the grind of blogging. 

I've been wanting to create a look using MAC's Lady Grey palette that came out in their FALL '11 collection. So I challenged myself to make it look wearable for the spring. The palette itself has light mauves and greenish grays. I played up some of the greens and pulled some pinky colors into the rest of my makeup. I hope you like!

(side note: Because the eye makeup ended up coming out very glowy, it was a little difficult to photograph. So bare with me!)
