Hello, beautiful! Ever since I can remember, I (Emma here!) have been obsessed with beauty tips, tricks, and secrets.

    I’m doing my own makeup for my wedding, and since I hardly ever wear more than mascara and lipgloss, I still need most of the materials to do so!

    I will be doing my own makeup for my wedding, and the brushes that I have now are falling apart! Each time I use them, I end up with black bristles all over my face. I’d really appreciate it! Thanks :)

    I would love to win because I cant afford to buy make up brushes and I find it hard to do my make up without them. I would really appreciate winning these because it would mean a lot to me and save me a lot of money that I dont have. I would be able to do my make up so much better and I would be able to experiment and try new techniques that you can do with brushes. It would mean soo much to me! :) p.s I love your blog.0
