Glowy Makeup Picks

Everyone loves a bit of glow (a safe assumption?), which explains the never-ending highlighter launch throughout 2016, and if I may make a prediction, the trend is not going to die down in 2017 either. Because… well are we ever going to stop loving a glowy skin? Probably not. I, as a beauty junkie, obviously are not an exception.

An Everyday Mascara Love – HR Lash Queen Feline Blacks Mascara Review

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Review & Swatches
