Hide your low-rise and hipster bottoms because high-leg bikinis are back from the ’80s, and they’re here to fit comfortably and accentuate your legs. This super-high-rise, above-the-hip look tightly hugs your body for a comfortable

For the record: I like my face, and I don’t think it needs changing. But you know what else I like? Gorgeous, full eyelashes. I’m one of those girls who wear mascara to the gym.
