Makeup can be really expensive. Like, $53 for a tube of lipstick expensive. Unless it applies itself, I can't justify spending that much money for it. Drugstore options are fine, but most of those brands don't carry the cool colors high end brands have. Will there ever be a compromise in this age old battle?

The latest issue of Allure has a feature on how to achieve hairstyles popular in the 1970’s. It includes an Afro, which was (and remains) a symbol of Black Power.
