DRUGSTORE PICKS: CONTOUR KITS

 

If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me about contouring..........

 

I would be rich.

Drugstore Picks: Powder

I was scarred by powder when I was in High School. Back in the days of non-digital cameras... (YES, I am a dinosaur,) we could only rely on disposable cameras to capture all of our memories at dances like Prom or Homecoming. I would be SO excited to get to Target a da...

Bronzer applied the wrong way = Jersey Shore

Bronzer applied the right way = Thinner cheeks, skinnier nose, lots of dimension. 

 

Bronzer is one of those funny products that is USUALLY used the wrong way right out of the gate. The misconception is that it's sole purpose i...

If you know me at all, you know that my biggest non-negotiable is BROWS. Brows frame your eyes making them look bigger, wider, and less-tired. They've made quite a comeback this year. Soft makeup with a bold brow and lipstick are super trendy and chic, but without a to...
