Japan 2016 Makeup Look

It’s been a while! I understand that I have been MIA for some time. Lately a lot of things went on with me, and I had to focus on them first. But this is something I’ve always wanted to show to you guys: my Japan 2016 makeup look!

Simply put, my friend called it “drunk blush”. Since I tried this look, I found it looks super good on me. It’s become my “usual look” since then!

Take note that there are a lot of non-Japanese products here as well. I used a lot of the products here for quite a while.
