Makeup Makeup

Flip back through the pages of time and you’ll find women (and men) using cosmetics to enhance their looks. Whether they wanted to appear more beautiful, seductive or powerful, people instinctively knew that defined features and bold colors made a statement that was hard to argue with.

It’s been a year since we have Read more [...]
