The Look: Smythe's 10x10 Anniversary Collection

It's approximately 90 degrees outside and humid as hell, but I'm currently plotting all the ways I'm going to wear this new Smythe topper once the temperature finally dips.

The Face: Creatures of the Wind Spring 2015
No offense to the cat eye or even the classic kohl-rimmed liner, but I suggest going sans dramatic makeup this weekend. Instead, just even out your complexion with BB cream, swipe on some creamy blush, groom your brows, and head out the door. It's the weekend, after go out and play!

So while we don't suggest skipping out on the real vitamins--like, in pill form--let this anthem be just the mood booster you've been craving.
