Today’s post is a skincare tag. I thought I’d o a fun take on Q/A and answer some pretty common questions. I did ask for questions to be answered on my insta-stories and added some that I got from online. Many of the questions were makeup related but I don’t wear makeup that often so I did pick and choose which one I answer.
I hope these questions give you an idea about my skin and where I am in my beauty journey. So here we go with my first ever tag posts. I hope you enjoy 🙂 *some affiliate links are used in this post*
