Manic Episodes and New Makeup

Yesterday was a particularly productive day for me, besides being a holiday.

Makeup Is My Favorite Souvenir

NYX Pro Foundation Mixers:I Wanted to Love These, I Really Did

Silly me decided I wanted to be a sun goddess the past few weekends and attain my goal of Lupita rich skin. I’m nearly there BTW, and YES I wore sunblock. On the downside, this means that my tried and true foundations are now too light and have me looking like a tan Geisha. Anywho, Read More
