If you’ve read my O to 100 post, then you know that I’ve been obsessed with makeup for about four years. Seeing it written is kind of shocking to me. Doesn’t seem like it’s been that long in real life. But life has happened and I have no complaints about that. I’m finally getting into a groove and practicing recurrently.
I am generally a brand loyal person. Makeup is the one thing I am not at all brand loyal with. Trying out different products in makeup is the only way to find out what works best. My skills are continually improving, your girl is glowing up! I’m not a professional yet, but watch out world. I’m starting to branch out a little!
I ran across these pictures from a makeup party I attended 4 years ago. This picture tickles me today, because I remember being so proud of my finished product. I also thought I was the teachers pet, having the most product knowledge in the group. Bless my heart.
If we fast forward to today, there have been improvements even since the 0 to 100 post was made in September of last year. I’m proud to say that I feel like I’ve mastered the art of highlighting and contouring my face. However, I am in the process of finding the perfect hydrating foundation (for my normal to dry skin) in an affordable long-wear (12+ hour) formula.
As with everyone, I have good brow days and bad brow days. More good than bad, so I won’t complain! My struggle area was and still is eyes. My lids are oily and hooded, so finding shadow pigments that don’t crease and transfer is one issue, another is my ability to place the pigments on my lids in a way that best displays the colors and helps to make my eyes looks more open. I also need to work on winging my liner.
