Priscilla is happy being a successful, single, business woman. Or is she?

My Makeup Essentials

IMG_4049A little bit of a different post this week but in conjunction with my youtube video on my makeup essentials :)

I started wearing makeup at around the end of high school, and since my mom never wore any, I was completely perplexed on what to buy/get–is a finishing powder absolutely necessary for wearing makeup?
