Ever since I came to own my first tube of clear Maybelline Great Lash eight years ago, makeup has been a part of my life. In grade school, I wasn’t allowed to wear it at all. Experimentation with my giant Markwins eyeshadow and lipstick palette — on sale at Robinsons-May, much to my middle school […]
