Today I want to let you know how to schedule, what to expect, what I loved, what went wrong and whether it was worth it.

I have to admit, I started this post simply to justify the number of foundations I own. After my hairdresser accused me of not having enough self control, I thought I might see just why I did have so many foundations.

I have so much makeup and sometimes I don’t touch it for a while. Well, makeup expires just like anything else we eat or use.
