  1. Ah, such a fun look! I wanna try this<3

  2. What colour of the Revlon Colorstay foundation did you use?
    I saw you apply it and thought it would be amazing for my skin but you didnt mention a shade?

    LOVE the tutorial you are amazing

  3. this is a cool look. jus wondering what are the lashes you used? where are they from x

    1. The bottom pair are cheap from Primark/Penneys and the top pair were from Sleek makeup. x

  4. I LOVE your take on the different styles! Somehow you still manage to keep some classiness in there. Definitely love this look, soooo cool!
