Dogwood winter look of the day 

Here in the mountains, we have a saying for when it’s spring and we get a super cold snap: “Dogwood winter.”  Well, it’s beautiful and flowers are starting to bloom, but it just got super cold with freeze warnings every night!  I said “F it!” and wore some spring brights in defiance of the cold!

  
Behind me are a flower bed you can’t see, a dogwood not yet blooming, our Japanese maple, a Japanese Yaupon holly tree, and a rhododendron.

That shed across the way makes it look like we live in the country, but we live in a suburb off a major highway! So funny! 

Closer makeup look!

  
  

I really had fun with this one today!  Here, I topped the Tarte Dollface blush with MAC Full of Joy blush to give it a lavender highlight!
