Colourpop Collection

Colourpop is the brand that’s gotten me interested in makeup again. I’ve fallen out of love with makeup in the last year, just throwing on some bb cream, using a brow pencil and a lip tint and running out the door. It’s been liberating and I’ve only spent 5-10 minutes on skincare and makeup every…

Lately I’ve just been doing a light base, drawing on some straight brows, some mascara and lipstick and calling it a day. I’ve mastered this to be around 4-5 minutes after skincare. I’ve really grown…
