Best of 2016 – Makeup

Best of 2016 – Makeup

Hi guys,

So after skin and hair, it’s makeup time! I will try to stick to new launches as every year the list becomes long and endless ūüėÄ I was still in the winged liner and matte lips phase in 2016, just like 2015. I have recently purchased so many matte liquid lipsticks that 2017 will also be the same :p
