With Spring Break already having sprung upon us (punny, no?), and just around the corner for the rest, a post about essentials is essential. In the Spring and Summer I always like to be minimalistic - whether that means wearing fewer layers of clothing or makeup. Today I've compiled a list of what I consider essential - minimal with just the right amount of sass. I love bold brows to give the eyes a pop without any mascara; they help frame the face in astonishing ways. I'm also the girl you'll see wearing no makeup other than a bright, bold lip - but I have good reason! When I was young (first getting into makeup young) I took a trip to ULTA. It was during the summer and I was greeted by a charming young lady, and since I was young she wasn't going to recommend me any over-the-top makeup. What she did tell me, however; sticks with me to this very day, "Sweetheart, a bold lip color would look lovely on you and would bring all the boys at the beach your way," of course after this came, "don't tell your mother I said that". Of course I didn't, but I did listen to her advice - ever since then a bold lip has become my go-to for every occasion. I promise it wasn't all for the boys!
