ELF Cosmetics Bite Sized Mini Eyeshadow Palettes | Makeup Under $5

NOT LONG AGO, E.L.F COSMETICS LAUNCHED THEIR BITE-SIZED EYESHADOW MINI PALETTES AND THE INTERNET WENT WILD FOR THEM.

5 Gentle Morning or Second Cleansers For All Skin Needs

I'M A MULTIPLE CLEANSER KIND OF GIRL.

I rely on one to break down my makeup, and another to cleanser the skin. This method is known as "double cleansing" and since I caught on to the concept I could never go back! These days we're all wearing SPF (right... you are wearing your sunscreen, aren't you??) at the very least, and a full face at the most. It's just not enough to expect one cleanser to rule them all!... Read More
