Hi Everyone

Hope you all having a great week so far. I haven’t done a “What’s New In My Makeup Bag” since September i think. I’m sharing one of my favourite nail colours for Summer, newly released brand in SA, i’m hoping a dupe for the Maybelline concealer and an amazing new highligher from Catrice

Other than this post i have quite a few Christmas inspired posts that i’ll be sharing with you all though the month of December.

Hope you enjoy xoxo
