Start your Makeup Inventory in 2018

  Ok, I know New Year’s resolutions are a bunch of hokey and statistically are likely to fail in less than a month (presumably). However, I’m not proposing starting them (although I’ve suggested starting resolutions any time of the year). I’m talking about starting a […]

Makeup Resolutions

Makeup Resolutions

This post is probably more suitable for late December/early January, but I thought of it in September so here we are.   I really doubt I’m the first person to think of a concept like this, as much as I’d like the credit for it. […]
