GRWM: Brow Routine + LMdB Couches de Couleur

No one really asked for this, LOL, but I figured I’d show you anyway. Here’s a Get Ready With Me Video, in which I show you how I do my brows.

It refers to trade routes that “connected Afro-Eurasian landmass.” Though the routes were used for several trade systems (and certain diseases like the Bubonic Plague), it was primarily used, or I guess, known for its role in the promulgation of Chinese silk.
