Hello lovely readers! Welcome back to Pretty Neutral! Oh wait, excuse me, Mrs. Pretty Neutral. Ha, just kidding. As most of you know I was absent for a while because I got married and went on my honeymoon!

I decided to do a really simple post just to getย you (and me) up to speed and kind of outline what I want to do for the next few weeks! I love hearing your thoughts and suggestions so please, if you have any makeup looks or products you want to see featured on the blog just let me know down in the comments or send me an email!ย Enable me dear readers, enable me.ย 

Wedding/Honeymoon Recap: I will definitely do a post all about my wedding and honeymoon. Just for those of you who are interested! We had a really simple DIY wedding so I have lots of tips to save you a few dollars ๐Ÿ˜‰ We went to Acadia National Park for our Honeymoon and it was AMAZING! So many pictures to come!

Wedding Makeup Look: I had no idea what I wanted to do for my wedding makeup up until the morning of. I know, stressful. I obviously didn’t want anything dramatic but I just had no idea what I wanted! I will most certainly do a makeup look for you guys, super simple but so pretty!

Foundation Reviews: I have two new foundations I am trying. I know, I know, more foundations. I can’t help myself. It’s a problem! I feel like it would be helpful if I bared all and did a no makeup vs. just foundation. That would be helpful right?

COLOR: Guys, I am on the hunt for super colorful clean beauty. I want bright colors and I want them NOW. If you have recommendations, please let me know! I just love crazy, colorful makeup looks!

Finally…Draping: Another contouring trend? With blush? WHAT’S HAPPENING!? Don’t care, I’m going to try it and I am going to photograph it and we will see how it goes.

How have you guys been?! Thank you so much for being patient with me and my time away from the blog. You are all so wonderful and beautiful and amazing! Feel free to email me if you want to chat or just say hello! Hope you’re all having a wonderful week!

    Well hello Mrs. Pretty Neutral ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hoping you had amazing time and congrats! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I would like to see some summer looks with red lips. I bought Poppy by 100% Pure recently and would love to use it more. But all i keep using is Watermelon lipglaze ๐Ÿ˜€

      Oh my gosh I have seen swatches of that color and it’s gorgeous! I will most definitely do a look with red lipstick! Haha I totally feel you, I’m always like “Im going to be adventurous today and wear pink lipstick!” Then I end up wearing lip balm…

    Hello Mrs. Pretty!!

    Contouring with blush?! what ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will check out those posts too, but I dont think I will be joining that trend anytime soon.. I an basically makeup free most of the time but still enjoy reading your expert advice and is great info for our young readers so they can learn how to stay up with the “cool kids” while still doing it naturally. I love that about you and how you stay true to your ethos and values. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful journey with us. I really appreciate how you keep it real and don’t hold back. You have a beautiful writing style and style in general.
