Light Olive Skin - Part 1

Having light olive skin has been a challenge of mine for a while now. Most ladies with olive tones typically have darker skin, but not me! Having dark hair, dark eyes, and light skin puts me under the "deep autumn" category, but having olive skin minimizes the color options even more. Most of the cosmetic companies cater to porcelain, ivory, and dark skin colors which only really give the option of pink or yellow undertones for makeup. "Warm" makeup looks too yellow/orange and "cool" makeup looks too pink. I've opted for the no-foundation look but I still want options for eye shadow, nail polish, and lip color. 

This segment is focusing on my favorite warm shades for color and neutrals. Apply this palette to clothing, accessories, makeup, etc.

Neutrals such as champagne golds, pewter, gold, taupe, bronze, antique gold, chocolate, and warm gray

Not all warm colors are warm based, so opt for more coral shades, citrus shades, peaches, rosy pinks, strawberry red, orange reds, blood orange, and sunflower yellows.

Marbled Necklace

When making the plan for my Print All Over Me collaboration photoshoot, the jewelry was pretty much straightforward. Any daisy, swirly, funky looking jewelry would be welcome. I brainstormed an idea to make a marbled necklace, how was the question, though. My first plan was to buy large unfinished wooden beads and string a whole chunk together, until I came across this vintage necklace. The beads were colored, but faded and not quite what I was looking for. But the frame and the gold! It was perfect otherwise, so it was a great foundation for my experiment. I just disconnected the beads from the chain and attached each one to a wooden skewer. Then I used nail polish in my color scheme for the collaboration in the same fashion that you would marble your nails. Slowly pouring bits of color into a cup of water and swirled around to make a marbled effect. The colors turned out perfect and looks magical with the gold circle chain!
