Soft, Purple Mother's Day Look

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! My mom is still mostly housebound after her double-knee replacement a month ago, so I did some baking and took we took brunch to my mom's house and had a really nice time with her.

This is the look I wore today. I love how everything came together so well. It's been a while since my skin has looked quite this amazing, and the makeup went on well, and my hair didn't frizz one bit today. It was a good day for my entire head. :)

    1. You are such a sweetheart! Thank you, Wendi!

  2. Very pretty look!! And I agree about Archetype - nice product but Holly just doesn't care. I've spoken to her a couple times & she's a nice enough lady, she just doesn't seem like a business person. I checked the website about a week ago & it's gone.

    1. Thanks, Marcey. I'm sure Holly's nice. It's just such a shame she ran her business into the ground. I think her products are absolutely amazing -- in my Top 3 Faves, as far as quality goes.
