The Lipstick League – Week of 1/30/17
Question of the Week: Do you use micellar water? If so, when and how often do you use it?
EauMG’s Answer: Everyone I know uses it, but I don’t. I don’t really see how it fits into my routine. I use eye makeup remover at night and follow with the double cleansing method.
