Makeup Tutorial: Easy On the Eyes

Makeup Tutorial: Easy On the Eyes

My current obsession: Eye Gliders. This eyeliner lasts. All day. Let it set for 30 seconds and it's clinically proven to stay put at least 10 hours even in water. Just imagine: a pool party without the risk of raccoon eyes. A girl can dream, and dreams do come true. Up until a couple of weeks ago,... Read More
