Outside My Beauty Bubble (2)

In the previous entry, I dabbled a bit about coming across counterfeit makeup. I've seen Internet talk about their existence and even saw news reports about them, but to see them in person is a bit of a rarity. You see, in NYC, counterfeits of major makeup brands is rare to see - there's just …

Me and Instagram Cateyes.

Or, to be fair, it's more drag makeup cateyes than Instagram cateyes. Anyway, I finally convinced myself to practice cateye makeup after telling myself (and buying a couple of e.l.f. eyeliners for practice) that I need to do it to get better with the cateye. Because I have shitty hand-eye coordination and, if you noticed …
