All Blinged Out

If the last time you dabbled with blue-eye makeup was in middle school, up your game with a touch of bling like Maddy Perez in Euphoria. Make your inner teen proud!

A Splash of Aqua

Are you a girl through and through? We don’t blame you – it’s hard to move on from a classic. However, taking a little makeup leap can bring a refreshing twist to your beauty routine.
