To Istanbul and Back


I created this glittery smoky eye on a client yesterday and I was itching to recreate it on myself. This was actually supposed to be an ‘all about the eyes’ post. I had this really neutral beige lip on to keep the entire focus on the eyes but I just wasn’t feeling it. And then, I spotted this little baby pink  lip cream magic wonder on my makeup table and it just totally transformed my entire makeup look. Thank you soooo much NYX cosmetics for your Soft Matte Lip Cream range !!!
