New Makeup Favorites

Happy Friday!  A few of my favorite new (or at least recent) releases have fallen through the cracks!  I’ve shared them on Instagram, but with the summer being so busy, I never wrote about them on the good ole’ blog.  I’ve become more and more particular (okay, picky) when it comes to makeup – not […]
