When the Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade 43 years ago, they were ruling to empower women by legalizing safe abortion.  This decision has been instrumental in protecting women’s agency over our own bodies and lives.  On the 43rd anniversary of Roe, it’s hard to believe that we are still fighting to get and keep health care.  The anti-choice movement continuously keeps us on the defensive when it comes to legislation, and finds any way possible spread false information and shame women.

Today marks the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the watershed Supreme Court decision that told a nation obsessed with peering into women’s vaginas and telling them exactly what to do with said genitalia that, in fact, they cannot do that. However, 43 years later, we are not living in the utopia of reproductive freedom that some hoped for in the wake of that decision.

Thanks to the decade’s current comeback, this combo is looking better than ever. Makeup artist Kristin Hilton tells us how to get it. For the face: Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation, $62,
