45th Weekly Make-Up Tag - Monochrome

Yep you guessed right it's that time of the week, after umm'ing and ahh'ing and asking your opinions last week I've decided to keep the makeup tag going when I think about how I was the first to ever start a tag like this and how successful I've made it and also seen others take up the idea it would be a shame to let it go, after all the efforts with a screaming baby and staying up until 4 in the morning to type the posts up I just can't bring myself to end it so I'll keep it running until it dies down, can you believe it we've been doing this tag for nearly a year! Thank you to everyone of you for you honest feedback I really appreciate it :) Ok for this weeks tag if I'm honest I didn't have a clue what monochrome makeup would be .. want some more honesty I still don't know, when I think of monochrome black and white springs to mind so I went with just that and this is what happened, I'm not happy with how the pics came out I once remember a photographer saying they don't like shooting white as it blows out I think I experienced just that  ... We have a lovely new lady joining us so please make Keira feel welcome girls ...
