How Important Is Color Correcting to You?

Product Shout-Out: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder

This is only my favorite MAC powder of all time. No big deal, LOL. I’ve worn it for years, have loved it for years, and I’ll hopefully continue to love it as long as they keep making it. I don’t like it when powders look powdery, and this doesn’t. Show More Summary

Do You Plan to Wear Makeup on Christmas Morning?

To be honest, I don’t think it’s in the cards for me this year. I’m Filipino, and my family will be celebrating tonight and staying up all night long (yes, I sang that like Lionel Richie). But we literally stay up all night long! I mean,...Show More Summary
