The Beginner’s Budget Beauty Bag

Beginner's Best Budget Beauty Bag

It’s easy for us to forget that many of the things we take for granted, like knowing where to apply bronzer (on the high points where the sun hits your face), which drugstore brand makes the best bases (Bourjois) and how to make a red lip last all night (use a matching lipliner, apply a few thin layers and blot in between), aren’t so simple for some women.

There are going to be a lot of exciting new products hitting the shelves over the next couple of months, and I even though some aren’t going to be available for a while, I wanted to tell you about them anyway.
