Let’s face it — one of the main reasons we buy beauty products is for the packaging. Walk into any store, be it Sephora or CVS, and our eyes naturally gravitate toward the products that look pretty, inviting and exciting. So the swirled makeup trend has definitely got us all in a tizzy! We’re totally loving the look of different hues mixed together, creating an intricate wave and wash of color that are not only gorgeous but totally versatile and wearable. Check out the ones you simply must stock your beauty arsenal with immediately.
