Makeup Inspiration: Natasha Poly, January Jones, Ginnifer Goodwin

Here are just several looks that I really liked recently. I could have posted so many but I’ve decided to limit myself with three images.

The first one is the bronzed and flawless look Natasha Poly is wearing, it is so simple and yet stunning, perfect for summer!

One of them is this Essentielles Repairing Hand Cream (50ml) which promises to soothe, soften and nourish skin with moisture. It contains roses polyphenols  and is paraben free.
