I forget all the time that my big professional makeup kit is every girls’ dream.... In fact it used to be MY dream. I was a skinny, awkward 12 year old dreaming of a shiny makeup case filled to the brim with colours and glitters and a million lip glosses and it’s funny...

I can’t even start typing this without laughing, and crying a little inside. This is dedicated to the hundreds and hundreds of poor teenage girls who are ending their week with horrendous bruising around their lips from trying to get the Kylie Jenner lip look. So. So f...
