Why I Can't Stick to 1 Foundation After Fenty Beauty - What to Do If You Can Relate

To whom much is given, much is required, right? That's how the saying goes, yet never in a million years did I think it would apply to my foundation.

Finally, a makeup line we - people of color and all skin tones - could wear. You would think all my cosme...

We Tested $249 Worth Of Face Wash — & This Cleanser Was The Clear Favorite

Don't trust anyone with perfect skin who tells you they don't wash their face; you just know they're lying. And if we were to hazard a guess as to why, it's probably because they found The Cleanser — the one that vacuums pores 'til they're clean and tight, rinsing away those stubborn mascara marks hanging out under the lower lash line to leave skin baby-soft, glowy, and gorgeous — and they just don't want you to know about it. Again: not to be trusted.Instead, take it from our R29 editors, a gr...

Holiday Glitter Makeup: Everything You Need To Know

This post was sponsored by wet n wild as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. If there is one thing that everyone can count on, it’s that winter makeup will always feature an abundance of glitter. The connection seems to be solidified, almost to the point of cliche: the moment the nights become longer, the makeup becomes sparklier.
