I know I am 32 years old and I still get confused between, bronzer, blush and foundation! You will never catch me at the MAC counter or any place else buying make-up all the options are just too much and I never know what to get to accomplish the look that I am going for! My make-up routine, if for argument sake, I had a make-up routine, would consist of some lip gloss, and if I wanted to get fancy...WAIT FOR IT.... WAIT FOR IT... SHIMMERING LIP GLOSS!LOL Yep sad but true, that is my make up routine!
See what I mean! First picture I got extra fancy and put some eyeshadow on and do you see the last picture that is my idea of shimmering lip gloss!!! So there is my sad truth, I have no idea what to do with make-up but I feel like I need to learn!!! I need to update my look! I need to start my day off a little better every morning and I feel like maybe if I took some extra time and maybe took the hair out the bun and let it down and just had a simple make up routine then maybe, just maybe I can get out this little slump I have been in for the past few weeks! Can't hurt right??? Well the jury is still out on that one, because even when I wear make-up I feel a little weird and I just don't think it looks good on me but hey I will give it a shot!.
I guess my friends also felt I needed a pick me up because two of them, separately gave me make-up for my birthday! (Not sure what they were trying to tell me!) They didn't overwhelm me. They both choose things that are pretty simple for me to use on a daily basis to give my face a fresh look in the mornings! I don't want to over do it!
So today I tried it!!!
Now here is hoping that I know what everything is:
A: Eyeshadow kit. bottom two are base coats for the full lid and the top are what you should put on the top part of your lid (Yes!)
B: Powder Foundation
D: Brushes (though I have to admit third from the left have no clue what that is for) E: This powder evens you out but I forgot the name of it.
F: Mascara G: Poppin' Lip Gloss!!!!
Did I get it right!!! LOL Well anyway today I tried it on my own for the first time. I didn't take a picture because I have my hair in a bun again and well I just was late to work, but I got the thumbs up from my sister in law(by the way she is one of the friends who bought me the make-up) and my husband! Layla also approved telling me I looked pretty, which was followed by her demanding I put lip gloss on her! I am going to try my hardest to stick to this! I know that make-up doesn't solve problems, I know that the situation we are in and the reason I am stressed and sometimes out of it, we will be in for a little while longer!
BUT DAMN IT WHILE WE ARE IN THAT SLUMP I CAN STILL LOOK GOOD!!!!
That's all my friends and family have been trying to tell me, that sometimes just a little change can make the world of difference!! OK I get it I hear you now! And just so this is not such a little downer of a blog I want to share with you some pictures of when I really liked my make-up. Disclaimer: None of the make-up in any of these pictures was done by me! Most of it was done by professionals or great friends who know the difference between lip liner and eyeliner!!!
