L’Oreal Lumi Cushion

The biggest makeup trend of the moment seems to be cushion foundations. What exactly does than mean though?  Essentially, it is a sponge soaked in liquid foundation, neatly packaged in a compact.

Weekend Wears – The basics

Now that spring is officially here, I thought I would feature some of my current style essentials. The first item is a pair of cropped, destroyed, boyfriend jeans from American Eagle.
