Smokey Eye + Pink Lips Makeup Look

I took these makeup look photos a few months ago and I’ve been mulling over sharing it on the blog. I’m not a makeup expert and I’m usually on the safe/neutral side but on this day I decided to experiment and play around with makeup.

Makeup Sale Haul

If there’s a makeup sale happening close to me, I cannot resist going to it. Even if I don’t need any more makeup, I always like to check it out to see if there are any new products. There are two makeup sales around NZ that I know of but the one I go to the most and where this haul is from is the Big Bucket Deals.

See my full haul below.
