Golden Cranberries for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! I wanted a fun, crazy look to post so I can show one thing that I’m grateful for this year. I’m grateful for all of you, who faithfully come to read this little makeup blog and encourage me every day to keep trying new things. It’s not just about trying new products and branching out with new color combinations… for me, it’s also about gaining confidence and feeling pretty and being creative and having fun with life in general.  I love having this outlet to express this crazy obsession of mine, and I am thankful every single day for all of you who take a minute of your time to read what I write. I’m especially grateful to know that once in a while, I can inspire you to try something new.

About Essy
I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Essy! You have inspired me to try some things outside of my comfort zone (like experimenting with bright colors!) and I have learned how to blend out the crease more expertly, thanks to your detailed photos and commentary. Thank you!
