Makeup shopping is not my favorite pastime. First of all, the expense! Even drugstore brands can be crazy expensive and let's not even get started on "designer" or 'high-end" lines. Second, the endless options. How many ways of covering up blemishes or shades of eye shadow do I really need? Finally, if you are able to decipher the minuscule font size of the ingredients list, you probably have no idea what most of the ingredients are. 

A much less expensive and less stressful (in my opinion) option is DIY Makeup. It is clean and simple and you will know exactly what is going on your face. Fun to whip up on your own, but even better with a few friends and some healthy snacks. I love a good DIY party!
