The Fire Next Time #BookLook

Hello Everyone! Who's down for another book look?!

This makeup look is inspired by the book, The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin, I felt that a sultry smokey eye would be the appropriate look to replicate and I hope I was able to do it justice.

For the step by step process on how I was able to achieve this look, check out my YouTube Channel. The list of products I used are located below for your convenience. I hope you enjoy this look as much as I do!
