ball cap

Why?: Caps are my personal favorite accessory.

Giving off a tomboy vibe, they just effortlessly complete any

“Messy hair, don’t care” type of day.

My favorite are ones I get from places/events I go to, or vintage ones.

Nude lipstick

Why?: Being on the complete opposite spectrum of red lipstick,

a lipstick closely matching your skin tone is a nice subtle

addition to your makeup routine. It gives off a clean and

fresh faced look, amazing for that ‘no makeup’ appearance.

Beware: don’t pick a color exactly that of your skin tone, or

else it may make you look flushed! I suggest finding

one 1-2 shades darker.

Where?: I highly recommend Mac Cosmetics. You can find a store in Valley West Mall.
