    A little Notoriety

    This is my oldest daugther Melissa, 17. I tried part of the notoriety Quad on her along with some Obviously Orange. She's quite the makeup fiend, but limits herself to blacks and browns mostly, though she does enjoy purple. I added to her brows as she's plucked them very thin and I wanted to...
