  • Have you noticed how much I love a skin like foundation application? Clean skin and paired back eyes are all on trend for 2019.... Oh and so is a colour pop and bronzer. This look isn't for everyone but I always love to show how beautiful this style of makeup can be and how much a bold lip changes the makeup.... Cover the lip and you will see how simple the makeup is, but that lip gives it the wow factor. Is rolling though Instagram you will see alot if heavy makeup and I hope I am a breath of fresh air in your feed .
