I have never been a girlie girl. I was more a grudge tomboy who liked dolls. I find makeup so much work and I am lazy. When I was University there was a group of girls who were rumored to wake up at 5 to shower, decide together what they are wearing on that day. The aim was to compliment each other not mimic like how destiny child used to dress. After the morning meeting they would go make their hair then face then dress.
I on the other hand would wake up 15 minutes to time and put on clothes. I had no personal style. I envy such girls though, the dedication to get their face beat everyday is commendable. I am just not that type of girl. However, there is always that one afternoon after jamming by yourself you start playing dress up and you decided to do makeup and then you realize you cannot.
The beauty Youtubers LIE. They make it look so easy. Every time I tried I looked like a fool. Makeup before it is an art it is a science. I clearly missed that memo. It was just pure frustration. Thus, I stopped.
Plus, when I decided to be natural in the products I use I learned the beauty industry is big on using VERY harmful ingredients. I could not bring myself to put foundation that in the end would harm me. I ended up throwing out EVERYTHING beauty related I had. The stuff that was valuable I gave out. There are some Mary Kay products that I kept. ( I mean let us just be real there was no way I was throwing THOSE out)
Lately, my interest has piqued yet again. I have always wanted to do my makeup by myself on my wedding day. With my current skill level I would definitely end up looking like a clown. That was where my journey started. My aim is to make my own makeup if I can. If I cannot then I will look for organic products. It is in line with my believes.
Disclaimer though, as I experiment with different techniques I shall use really cheap probably filled with harmful ingredients makeup. Why? It is just for practice. I do not plan to walk out with that makeup.
I bought makeup brushes from aliexpress. They came a few days ago. I honestly do not know what all the brushes are for. It will be the first time I own brushes.
If you are like me and this is your first time interacting with makeup join this one woman bandwagon.
You can watch my first impression of these brushes here
Until next time
