Hello pretty people! We’re trying out a new feature on TBD. It’s called “Inspiration Station”. Every now and then, we’ll compileĀ a video inspiration board for you with videos that we thinkĀ are fun and inspiring in the world of beauty.

And maybe even request certain tutorials from a particular look in a video!

XO Lauren, Kristin + Amy Nadine
