Hey guys! TGIF!
If you follow me on Instagram (and read my posts...hehe! #teamjustscrollandgo, we outchea!) you would probably know that my main computer crashes not long ago, and sometime last week my back up external hard drive crashed. It was like a spirtual attack!! When I realized  what was going on, I started hyper ventilating, later I was in denial, when I finally accepted it, I burst into tears. Why??

At that point I realized my whole life was on that drive, at least my whole life in DATA. both business and personal. So I called a few tech guys, I went to Super Geek but I was told the HD had been even told me I must have dropped it. I just shook my head and left. So I searched everywhere on google till I stumbled on this website Some dollars after (I wasn't happy about that at all), I got my data back! 
Scoreline: Persistent Salewa 1, Geeks 0.

On to this look

So yes I am not staying away from brown lippies anytime soon, especially the DARKKK ones! Zaron Matte Lipstick in Ebony brought it! If you ever wondered what a lipstick on steroids looks like, this is it!

I paired it with a simple cut crease and very dewy already know that matte finish is really not my cuppa.

Did a white waterline..sigh could my eyes get any bigger?? This picture had me laughing at myself over and over..called myself several names "100 watts, torchlight, egg eyes" At a point I started talking to myself " madam turn down the light" then it moved to a song "Turn on the light by Future" Smh, anyone who knows me well knows that I turn everything into songs!
Anyhoos it is all good in the hood, I love my eyes!

Lorac Unzipped Palette for the eyes, crease, transition
Lorac Pro Palette for the waterline
