You’re lucky if one of them truly matches your skin tone, which is just one of the many reasons why Jodie Patterson and Benjamin Bernet founded DOOBOP. The site is the first beauty e-tailer designed specifically for multi-ethnic women.
I have anxiety issues leaving my Chelsea gym because it’s located within arm’s length of where about 1,000,000,000 people I know work. There is not one day – no matter how cold, rainy, or snowy it is – that I don’t leave that gym wearing sunglasses. Why?
