  • Wow, love these looks, absolutely beautiful!

  • Asia Mays

    The Luminous Lilac look is killer…

  • I love the natural eyeshadow on all three looks! The colors are so subtle and yet they make a huge statement! Her spider brooch reminds me of a spider necklace I have that looks just like that but it’s all pink! It’s scares some people but mostly it’s a stand-out piece.

  • This look is fresh to death! And what better than another fashion trend this spring, lilac. Looks great in clothes and shoes as well as on eyes!
