I love a bright lip! but keep it neutral on the eyes.

I know she isn't alive anymore but Audrey Hepburn always looked flawless!

If you could leave the house using just one make up item, what would it be?

Could you ever leave the house without any make up?
I have done but to be honest I don't feel completely comfy. 

Do you think you look good even without any make up?
I don't think I look awful, But I feel I look better with basic make up on rather than nothing.

In your opinion, what is the best make up line?
I use so many different ones I couldn't name one as the best.

What do you think of make up?
I feel make up should be used as an enhancer rather than something to hide behind. I know I use it as a cover up but I feel like I do because that's what it has become for most people, making people feel like they should be wearing it even if they don't really need to. Show off your assets don't hide your flaws!

If you have made it this far well done and thank you!! :)

Let me know if you have done this post before? I would love to read some of your answers!

Lots of Love
