My Favorite Makeup Mirror

I realized the other day that lately I’ve been putting on my makeup while standing up in my bathroom leaning over the sink. Not the most comfortable position, clearly. I’ve gone from doing my makeup at a vanity to doing my makeup sitting on my floor in front of a floor length mirror to my […]
