Somehow, I missed this whole thing. I look at ads like this and I honestly don’t even know what this shit is used for or how it’s applied. Under what circumstances would one use these items and where in the process do they belong?
I don’t know how I missed it. I mean, I grew up in the 80s. I remember sitting at my mom’s vanity playing in her eyeshadow: jewel-toned greens and blues, and purple. I remember using her eye liner, lipstick and mascara. But somewhere along the way, I just lost interest and therefore the know-how.
I am not saying wearing makeup is bad, in fact I am envious of those who know how to pull it off. I wish I knew…I wish I could. I have had my makeup done professionally twice and each time, people’s response is “Wow, you look amazing! What did you do?” With my head down, I confess to wearing makeup. It reaffirms the feeling that I should do it more often. But I don’t know how.
And, before you offer to teach me or tell me about some great little place where I can go and learn, I should caution you not to mistake this post for me saying I actually have interest. I don’t. I am only saying sometimes I WISH I did…but I don’t.
And don’t give me that crap about ‘oh, you are naturally beautiful.’ Nope, that’s not it. I am just not good at girl stuff.
P.S. I don’t like shopping, or even brunch. Told ya’ I suck at this.
