Makeup Wars $30 Face of the Day Challenge!

2014-08-17 03.37.10 (480x360)

This week our makeup warriors are presented with the challenge of creating a full face of makeup for only $30. Drugstore makeup has really evolved in the past few years so that is where I concentrated my shopping efforts. With only $30 to spend, I did have to skip face and  eye shadow primer, but […]

2013-07-10 03.30.34 (360x480)

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to institute a moratorium on lipsticks and/or lip glosses for a few months. I have so many I can’t even keep track and obviously they don’t all get used–some just sit in a drawer. I did a little research for this post and I hate to admit it, […]
