We love getting our makeup done. Though most of the time you’ll catch us bare faced most days of the week, all of us here like wearing makeup. Lately though, it seems that we’ve been noticing a trend in makeup tutorials. Nose contouring. If we had five dollars for every time we’ve run across an in-depth tutorial on YouTube we’d be rich.
