Jennifer is the Goddess of Faux Beauty. And you know what, I quite like the sound of that. She makes it easy for the ladies, and a few gents, to scoop up the essentials in one pit stop. Think nails, airbrush tans and blowouts. And isn't that all you really need to set the record straight and feel confident as you hit the mean streets of Chicago? I think so. Read on...and read #10! This is by far the best answer I've ever received. - you go girl!
