Make up is an obsession, and yes, I can admit that. I love experimenting new items and finding out what works best with my skin. I can research different products, or try them myself, but the best way to know if a product works well is sometimes by word of mouth. For this blog, I am introducing you to three ladies who I consider to be experts with make up.
Kylie is currently a stylist at a local Madewell store. Her passion is to travel. She loves shopping, watching old movies, and rock climbing. Her goal is to have one of her photographs featured in a National Geographic magazine.

Kylie’s Day-By-Day Essentials: Foundation, BareMinerals brow kit, Baby Lips, eye shadow primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion Tube), eyeliner (SEPHORA COLLECTION) and mascara.
