The Lipstick League Question of the Week
Name a beauty-related skill you hope to improve in the new year (for example: winged liner, contouring, etc.).
G's answer: I suck at contouring, but I'm actually OK with that and not really looking to improve my skills too much since I'm more of a "blush and highlighter" kind of gal anyway. But what I would really like to improve this year, above all else, are my false eyelash application skills. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'm at negative 10. In other words, I can't do it. I've been trying for decades and maybe THIS year will finally be the year that I can become semi-competent! Fingers crossed.

EauMG is Currently Craving: Lately, I’ve been so into ultra-glam late 1970’s era fashion. I’ve been into fierce Grace Jones-ish warm, jewel tone eyeshadows like the shades in Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette paired with glossy red lips like Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Icon.
