Teen Gift Guide

 

HUG your auntie! My holiday gift guides are back! I’m not in the mood; it doesn’t feel very holiday-ish but I’m pushing through. This is an annual tradition on EauMG.

EauMG’s Answer: I use basic ‘ole concealer daily, mainly for under my eyes. I do own a few of those “color correcting” products in shades of green marketed to help with redness from Korean brands (i.e. The Face Shop, Nature Republic, Missha) and Shiseido. I don’t know if it is just me or my
