Read This Before You Buy Makeup Online...

Most makeup-obsessed people have love-hate relationships with online shopping. We revel in the luxury of ordering an eyeliner and a sandwich while watching Netflix in our sweats, and we're all for refilling our tried-and-true must-haves with just a couple clicks.

Since we'd never give up our couch-shopping habit, we're determined to crack this online beauty world. So we turned to a few of our most trusted makeup artist friends. With their expert insight, we've laid out a plan for making sure we're just as excited when we get our next delivery as we are every time we leave the makeup counter.
