We do - March Collaboration Project

We're baaaaaaaack! Over the next several months, the Professional Makeup Artists from my last blog post will be working diligently to bring you some really fun collaborations. For this month, we have incorporated the brand spankin new Motives I Do Palette and Aurora Gem Sparkles into a detailed "Get the Look" post. We think it's great to see how different the same products can look depending on who is wearing them!

We hope you enjoy it!

Here are the products that all of our images will have in common.
