I don't know which lovely in the Lipstick League came up with this week's question, but I love it: Name a beauty-related skill you hope to improve in the new year (for example: winged liner, contouring, etc.).
Rather than a specific skill, I need to work on variety, changing my look up more often just for fun. My usual simple routine evolved as an efficient back-of-the-cab face. Occasionally when there's time, I add a little liner, or a bit of smokiness (usually after I edit and post a how-to video!), but that happens very rarely. I have such great stuff to use, I just need to make the effort! Maybe not in the back of a cab, though. Obvi.
Wait – I do need to take more care with my hair. Gotta get it cut more often, because it requires the least styling effort to look polished when the shape is right. Okay, that.

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 the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette paired with glossy red lips like Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Icon.
