Eyeshadow Techniques: The Two Tone

The Two Tone eyeshadow technique sounds a bit like a band from the 1980’s, don’t you think?

How I Highlight and Contour using Maskcara Beauty

I used to think that Highlighting and Contouring were just tricks people used on tv shows or youtube. And there was no way that I, a mom with 5 boys who lives in the Midwest would ever be able to figure it out!
