Like matte skin once upon a time, hydrated, glowy skin has been on-trend in both skincare and makeup for the last few years. And while we love a good hyper-moisturized, glass skin look, can we also admit that it can be a bit over-the-top and hard to maintain at times?  This...
As if mastering the art of makeup application wasn’t daunting enough, now you have to perfect applying makeup on dry skin, which, btw, feels like rocket science. Seriously.
