5 Reasons Why Your Beauty Routine is Causing Breakouts

Breakouts. Aren’t they fun? They spring up at the WORST possible times, don’t they? While there are SO many causes of acne out there including hormones, stress, your diet, etc., some of the reasons can be shocking. You might be the very cause of your own breakout in 2 ways: 1.)

How to Make Your Lipstick Last All Day



I don’t know about you, but I LOVE me some lipstick. Some people prefer gloss. Some skip their lips all together.

So you want to know how to make your lipstick last all day?
