Last year a trip to the beauty department at Saks, left me with an obsessed with Armani Beauty. I came home with the serum, primer, foundation, powder, bronzer, blush, etc. (the whole shebang) and I’ve been loyal to every product ever since. Last month when I was traveling from LA, my new bronzer took a tumble and shattered. Determined to make it as good as new, I searched Youtube for tutorials.
