Welcome to the weekend, yay! ? I hope your caturday acquired off to an excellent begin. Mine has been adequately enjoyable up to now. ?
Can we begin by speaking a little bit bit about make-up? Fairly please? — as a result of I’ve been fascinated by a remark Heather left on a put up the opposite day about viewing make-up as an all-or-nothing factor…
What she mentioned about being all-or-nothing with regards to make-up *actually* resonates with me! I’ve completely felt this fashion previously. A number of years in the past, if I hadn’t been capable of bang out an elaborate smokey eye containing fewer than 5 shades, I wouldn’t have even touched my brushes. I believed, why even go there until you CAN GO ALL THE WAY THERE, ya know?
Oh, how the instances have modified!
I’ve taken a extra relaxed strategy to make-up over the previous few years, and ESPECIALLY for the reason that pandemic began. I’ve gone days — in a pair circumstances, weeks! — with out carrying any make-up in any respect.
Currently, although, I’ve been attempting to encourage myself to put on a little bit extra and go a little bit additional with my make-up, as a result of I actually do really feel higher after I attempt a little bit, even when it’s simply mascara and forehead gel.
Once I do, I get the identical feeling I get after I make my mattress within the morning. Like, after I don’t do my mattress and it’s a matted mess, I really feel a little bit…off balanced? Technically, I stay useful, however each time I stroll by that unmade mattress I grumble… ?
Thoughts you, I understand that I don’t “want” (airquotes) make-up to be useful, however carrying a little bit does appear to take the sting off, which is simply to say that I did this look with 4 merchandise within the span of time it takes to hearken to Islands within the Stream, which was taking part in within the background, LOL! ?️
I used a purple liquid lipstick known as Stila Beso, a combo forehead pen/pencil known as City Decay Forehead Blade, a mascara known as City Decay Cannonball, and MAC Studio Repair Comfortable Matte sheer stick basis round my mouth and my nostril.
I’d’ve completely skipped basis, however I’ve been hyper-aware of my higher lip space currently. I’ve some pigmentation there that makes me seem like I’ve what I affectionately consult with as a “mustache shadow,” and it’s there even after I wax. It’s so bizarre! Does anybody else have this? It’s sort of annoying, however hey, with a masks on, no person is aware of what’s occurring besides me…and my mustache, HAHAHA!
This weekend’s Saturday browsing…
I fell right into a YouTube rabbit gap watching these twins hear traditional songs for the primary time.
Annie Lennox, by the best way, is A LEGEND.
Talking of legends
Educate me easy methods to make magic, Lisa.
This will likely or could not have made me tear up a little bit.
Somebody please make this for me.
This was SO good.
Even when you can’t/don’t really feel like carrying a full face this weekend, why not attempt a little bit little bit of make-up only for enjoyable? It may make the great day you’re having even higher. You simply by no means know!
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
