Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner

  This is my first time trying out Tarte Amazonian clay liners and I decided to go with the boldest of colours.

Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliners & Cream Eye Shadow

And the best part, you don’t need a valentine to try a bold red pout, or a delicate peachy blush, these looks work all year round. Let this holiday be an excuse (if you even need one) to treat yourself to a beautiful new… Continue Reading
