Current FOTD – May 2016

Last week I realised how long it had been since sharing a current make-up favourites or routine (if I’ve even published one at all!). This is the face I’ve been putting on before doing anything mildly important (which is not a lot). It’s also mostly the make-up I’m wearing in my latest selfie, which…
