Playing around with liner

Hey ladies :)

Long time since I have posted... I've been busy busy busy... but I have been practicing some different looks... I don't know why I didn't take photos of the looks I have done recently (dumb me) but I will get back to posting my looks of the day and what not. I just had an interview to work at Sephora part time over the holiday season, so hopefully I get it! :) I ordered soooooo much makeup this past month, I think I may have literally like tripled my makeup stash! I'll be doing swatches and reviews soon of everything I have done... But for right now, I just wanted to post photos of this look I did just playing around :)
