  • Nova

    Hi there I discovered your blog recently and fell in love completely I was wondering how you made you banner I’m dying to know because I want to start a blog and also I was wondering if when you take photos of make up on you actual face you could do one with flash and one without :)

    • Kaushal

      Hi Nova, thanks do much for your message. I made my banner just with a random font on a program called Paint.NET which is like a free photoshop. I can try & do with & without flash photography of my face (sometimes England isn’t the best for that) but I will definitely try my best x
