Make-up your mind!

Makeup enhances beauty, defines your features in new and exciting ways. It brightens your facial structure and turns your face into a work of art! I am very much into dressing up and makeup. I wear makeup every day. I like natural look though, just little bit of mascara, foundation and bronzing compact powder. I enjoy it but I don't depend on it.

Love all of those images! I love make up, I like trying new things with it, I should really experiment more with colors. I like to wear more eye makeup when I go out at night but usually it's eyeliner & mascara & sometimes some nude eyeshadow :)

Thanks for your comment! It was sad in real life (I wrote this after the other night), but in a funny kind of sad that I laughed about later when I recalled standing outside of my ex's house in the freezing cold with no jacket pacing back and forth with phone in hand about to dial and then thanking god that I didn't in the morning haha.
