If there is a product that I struggle to accept (and it very much struggles to accept me), it is a concealer. I'm that annoying Goldie Locks who after spending enough to buy a small country has decent skin, some imperfections, a few fine lines, and acne-prone but aging skin that wavers between oily and [...]
On the day-to-day I am a minimal makeup kind of gal. More because my skin is like a 3 year old toddler waiting to have a tantrum so when it's sleeping (acting like an angel) I will do whatever I can to not wake the beast. However, when I have a glam party or something [...]
