Looks I Wore Recently (Makeup & Fashion) Part 2

IMG_0601-001

Makeup is an artistic expression for me. I have a large collection of cosmetics from which I enjoy creating unique, fun looks. Fortunately, attending events for my blog gives me many opportunities to express my creativity through makeup. For reference, I’m 30 years old. I have slight texture on my skin, and a dry skin type that gets oily in certain weather conditions. I have noticed tiny fine lines around my eyes, but I never try to hide them. Makeup for me is about emphasizing my favourite features which are my eyes and lips. I wear a MAC NC 35 for colour reference.

The post will be a simple roundup of where I wore the look, and the products I used for it. You can check out the products by clicking on the links alongside them.
