Beauty Battle Station Must-Haves

"This isn't s bra, this is body armor.  This isn't makeup, this is war paint!" - Iliza Schlesinger


When I'm getting glam for the day, I step up to my battle station and make a game plan.  Okay, maybe you don't call it a "battle station", maybe you call it "a vanity".....same, same.

I do, because it was the first lip trend that I hopped on.  I went out and raided the Maybelline nude lipstick collection display at my local Walmart.  Some of the shades that I bought back then don't really work on me anymore, but I think that 'Nude Embrace' still does.
