I’m a Beauty Expert

The truth is that although I’ve always been a makeup junkie, I haven’t always thought of myself as a beauty expert. I loved to find out what people were using and I loved to compare notes about my favourite products, but I never thought of myself as someone who could guide people on what to […]
