Velvet skin, a soft smokey eye and a deep red lip… perfect for Christmas!

Let´s see if I succeeded to come close, given my less than modelesque features and the lack of Photopshop… Read more

As many of you may know already, I am currently at home. But as I  stated here, I wore makeup almost every single day to get me into a “work mindset”. Granted, it was a quick and easy look skipping foundation most days, but it was all I needed to feel ready to be productive. Read more
