a few years ago I was hip and cool with the kids, this is back when YouTube was my study time and Sephora was my one place of worship. Ohh boy how the times have changed. I am at a point in my life where I don’t care if my eyebrow pencil is Anastasia Beverly Hills or Maybelline. I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss the rush of adding the new Naked pallet to my horrendous collection of makeup I had spent more than 500 dollars on, only to keep in a drawer for 3 month before I remembered I had bought most of the items.
Now I am a simple gal (when it comes to makeup)
a year ago I wore a full face of makeup
foundation (Urban Decay or Milk Makeup), concealer (Benefit), contour (ABH cream contour) , highlight (Two Faced candlestick), eye shadow primer (Urban Decay), eye shadow (Modern Renaissance, Naked 2, 3 and, Smokey, two faced chocolate bar) , liquid eyeliner (alwaysss Stila, I don’t know why), mascara (better than sex), lipstick (Kylie Jenner kip kit…. I was that bitch)
just typing out all of that makes me exhausted, I am not sure how I got up so early just to walk around with a layer of caked silicone on my face.
Now when I get up I wash my face with some cold water
apply this “Dior forever” concealer to any blemishes that wanna ruin my day, around the corners of my nose, and a scar on my forehead. Not all over though because I gotta leave my freckles out to see the world.
I take this cool Maybelline “brow define and fill duo” thing and lightly fill in my eyebrows with each end (Don’t be the girl with obviously drawn on eyebrows, pls)
Then I either put on some fake Ardelle eyelashes of some BTS mascara, I like fake eyelashes because they’re so easy to take off. No more scrubbing for 10 minutes and then having your eyes get irritated from the makeup remover. its also nicer to spend 4 dollars on lashes than 100 on extensions that take 2 hours to put in and ultimately fall out without a few days, taking our beautiful lashed with them. (I don’t care what anyone tells you, they make your lashes fall out)
That’s it. simple and easy
when in in the car I like to put on some lip product sometimes
I highly recommend Burt’s Bees lip shimmer, the stuff feels sooo nice on your lips with a soothing menthol feel and light formula, great for the upcoming summer days.
When I wanna do something a little more bold I like to reach for some lip stick, I usually dab a little onto my finger and rub it onto my lips so it looks more natural.
despise my udder hatred for how society is pressuring women into an expensive makeup industry, I wanna do a few product reviews in the future and really go into depth about the products (Are they worth it? Are there any dupes?)
Keep it real man, ill see ya in the next one
