  1. Oh my! Looking at the shades and the colors makes me imagine that I am actually wearing it. My Mac contouring make up is abut to run out so I might want to try some of these lovelies for a change. A friend of mine bought me an imported make up but it didn’t matched my skin tone, luckily I was able to check out this blog post and these brands will make a perfect addition.
    Oh, can you also make a tutorial about tricks on how to get that perfect eyebrow and eyelashes? Thanks!
