Our DIY Makeup Alternatives

It’s been quite a while since I’ve dedicated myself to wearing a full face of makeup. By that, I mean committing to the whole, foundation – powder – eyes – lips routine. I can’t even remember the last time I wore BB cream.

Well, to be honest, my BB cream/foundation supply has all run dry and truth be told, so has my very small student bank account.

To me, I believe that the best and most invaluable thing anyone should have in their beauty arsenal is healthy and happy skin.

I also refute the idea of spending $30 on foundation and another $20 on lipstick.

I’m pretty sure plus-sized Erika Schenk has better stamina than I do!

The 18-year-old has been running for nearly a decade, but her body type is definitely different than those typically featured on the covers of fitness magazines. I guess that’s the reason why the world was shaken up when images of Schenk grazed the cover of the August issue of Women’s Running, knowing for a fact that the magazine’s decision to feature a plus-sized model was a huge one.

Would you be buy a shirt by Justin Bieber? Well, we would. Hey, have you checked out the young stud recently? Not to mention his style sense had gotten a lot better since his backward cap and hanging-at-the-edge-of-his-butt designer jeans. Tattoo sleeves aside, he’s really cleaned up his act, especially with the numerous ‘spitting on the crowd’ incidents during what he describes as his ‘teenage years’.
