With all the sparkle of the Holidays beyond us I decided to scale it back and do a neutral look for the first Makeup Monday of the New Year. This look isn’t any less appropriate for a night out on the town than any of my December looks, but it’s a nice change. I often forget that creating a night look with shades of brown is SO much easier than most other colors, so if you’re a newbie this is the look for you!
