My Signature Summer Look {TAG!}

*PR Sample

I was tagged by Beautycalypse to do My Signature Summer Look.  I loved the idea behind this tag, so of course I was going to participate. I am however a bit late in doing the tag.

So, how does the tag work!?

Create your Signature Summer Look, make your post as detailed or casual as you like (the style of your post is completely up to you, you can include a how-to video or a step-by-step visual, or only the look + description) and then post it following these Rules:

Link back to this post so I can include you + and title your post as I have.

Only use make-up products that you own for 6 months minimum. No exceptions! And have a lot of fun creating, as though you were introducing your own collection.

Please tag other 5 to 10 green beauty bloggers, making sure they notice ;)
And the best part: if you’re not a green beauty blogger but like to join the fun, just do it following the rules 1-3!

Theme is "Pretty in Pink"
