300th Post: Special Dedication to Annetta (@netterhead) 90's Full On Drama Look 9/11/16

Hi everyone!  This post is a very special one.  It is my 300th blog post! Yay!!!  I have been blogging since April 2013 and for those of you who have been following me since the very beginning, I am so very grateful.  Thank you for sharing this journey with me and celebrating the love of makeup and beauty.  I have so many exciting things planned for the future so make sure you are following me so you don't miss out on any of the hot products and new looks to come.

I am a strong believer that there are reasons people come into your life.  Some will shine their own light on you so brightly that you can feel the heat.  That heat will, in turn, warm your heart and strengthen your spirit.  With this post, I am going to introduce you to a very special woman that has done this for me.  Her name is Annetta, and you can find her on Instagram with the handle @netterhead.  She is the sweetest, most genuine lady.  She has a sincere love of makeup (especially Anastasia Beverly Hills, which is one of my absolute favorite brands) and a passion for life.  Her smile lights up every picture and her striking blue eyes pierce my soul.  I absolutely adore her!  She is incredible: smart, passionate, and beautiful inside and out.  She has a gift with words and a shining spirit.  One chat with her and you will fall in love with her just as I have.  I am honored to call her my friend and very excited to dedicate 90's themed look to her.  Please go check out her Instagram page, give her a follow and show her love.

I am proud to present these photos to celebrate the theme.  The 90's was a time for a lot of brown shades, lots of tone on tone color.  Shades that would not only add shape to your face, but that would draw you in were very common during this time.  If you would like to know what I used to create this mostly matte look, keep reading.
