An Afternoon with the Family | Makeup Tutorial

The other day I wanted to film a new makeup tutorial and pay homage to my motherland in honor of its independence day! To put my own spin on the look, I chose to subtlety incorporate green into the look, trying to keep it as wearable as possible! (Products used will be listed below)

Once, I was done filming, I took a long stroll in the garden of my house where I bumped into the rest of the family- hence a photo shoot ensued.

If you're wondering why I'm wearing heels to take a walk- it's because I was waiting for the car.

To me there is nothing more beautiful than nature. Trees, plants and the vibrant forest green hues instantly put me in a better mood, and I'm awestruck by nature's beauty every single day.
Sadly, a few members of the family are missing.
