“Why are you wearing all that makeup? Do you mind me asking?” he presses. “I never understood why women wear so much makeup. It’s like you are so much more beautiful without it. It’s like guys don’t even like that kind of stuff, you know? It’s this soul-sucking system meant to oppress women, and it’s fucked up. I want to see you.

It’s just one instance of many that proves that for Cassie, makeup is both armor and a weapon.
Snow-filled snaps speckled the Karen And Kevin Standing In A Street Calling shirt and I love this feeds of Instagram this past week. For starters, Raquel Willis glowed in a selfie shared with a reminder to wrap up before going outside. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Richardson got playful with the first snowfall of the season– showing off a big grin and curls alike.
