Sunday Sharing: The Makeup Box That Is My Birthday Gift

This is the most special gift I received. My husband is in manufacturing, and he made this makeup box for me, from A to Z.

Sigma Premium Travel Kit : An All Rounder

I usually like to purchase brushes individually. Sets, I find, somehow lack something. They might have good face brushes, but don’t have the eye brushes that I like and vice versa.
