I will never forget adding black eyeliner and gloss at the bus stop when I was 14. Those were good times! However, black eyeliner and gloss is a little harsh if you just want to look like yourself, but more polished. Instead, focus on evening out your skin, adding a little bit of radiance to your cheeks, a pop of color on your lips and a little shimmer to your eyes. Finish it off with a little mascara, in brown, not black, and you'll look like your best self. You know, what you'd look like if they photographed you to be in Seventeen magazine. Don't forget to protect your skin from sun damage. It's never too early to start good skin habits!
You don't have to spend a year's worth of allowance to look your best. I put this look together for $73.47 from drugstore.com. Be sure to look for coupons to save up to $10!

Today's kit was put together by my friend Kelly from Gouldylox Reviews. Kelly's blog has long been one of my favorite beauty blogs and I'm coveting her hair bun skills. She's also the founder of Karma Dogs and can often be found making me laugh on Facebook.
