first impressions

I’ve mentioned this once or twice, but I work from home. Sometimes it’s really boring and impossible to concentrate. Today is one of those days, so I played with some makeup.

Today I want to talk about something I’ve never mentioned before. Just kidding guys… I’ve talked about this approximately 20 times already. It’s my brushes. And how I HATE washing them.
