Confessions of a Girl who Never Sleeps: Dreams

I’m running through a forest of trees, the predator not far behind my steps. I get into the square metal building just in time. I’m breathing heavy, leaning against the steal door.

An Eyeshadow Tutorial

How-To: Perfect your eye make-up. Step One: After putting on your foundation, powder, bronzer and whatever you use for your base, use the secret weapon of eye shadow: Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Put a light layer on your entire eye lid. Step Two: Apply your eyeliner, really, however you like it. I prefer it this way, but that’s because I don’t actually know how to put on eyeliner.
