Yup. I am. I freakin’ SURRENDER.
If you were to run into me at the mall, the grocery store, at the park? Any place around town? This is the Tracy you’d see. Dark circles, chubby cheeks, and big-ass pores in all their glory(oh and you’d get a HUGE Tracy-Bear hug too):
I am wearing Paula’s Choice Resist Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SP30(sunscreen is a MUST for me), MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Light Plus, Dior Rosy Glow Blush(seriously, this is the blush I reach for when I don’t know what blush to wear-if you don’t have it? DUDE. You are missing OUT) and It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Lip Stain Je Ne Sais Quois. Oh, and that Benefit Eyebrow thingy, which MEH. I’m undecided about to be honest. I think I should have got the darker shade, because the lighter one is too warm for me. And one of my brows needs LOADS more help that just brushing on some of that stuff gives. It’s like a hairless wonder and can’t even really be classified as a brow? It’s a sorry, pretend brown and I don’t understand how they can be so different from each other. But otherwise? THAT’S IT. You can still see my large pores on my nose, my wrinkles(I mean HELLO, I am 47 years old-there’s no hiding those babies at this stage!). Nothing on the eyes, not even mascara because it’s summer. And frankly, most mascaras and eyeshadows bother my eyes lately. I think I have allergies. Never been tested, but WOW. My eyes are so itchy lately. And how do you scratch your eyes? YOU CAN’T. So, I just don’t wear much on my eyes most days so that I don’t have to deal with the blurry vision that makes it impossible to see my computer screen for DAYS after the fact. Do I look perfect? Hell no. But that’s ok with me.
Dude. Just because I BLOG about makeup and love it so much, doesn’t mean I wear a butt-ton of it on a daily basis. Seriously, who DOES? And when I watch these so-called YT Makeup gurus that slap on pounds of foundation, TONS of concealer under the eye and then POWDER IT all to highlighting hell, and contour with bronzer???? I CRINGE. I just can’t. Nope.
Which leads me to the wonder of WHY? Why does everyone think they need to look so dang PERFECT these days? I don’t get it. I don’t want to look perfect. I just want to look like ME. Just a bit better version of me. Sure, there are times I want to look perfect. But most days? PFFT. This is the Tracy you get. Chubby cheeks and all. So deal with it I say.
How about you? Do you try to look perfect every day? You know what I say? Perfection takes all the fun out of ANYTHING in life. F$$k it. I just wanna look good. Be good. Not perfect. It’s highly overrated I hear. 😛
And I’m done ranting today LOL. Let me know what YOU think. Because that’s why I do this. Honestly. And why does everyone think that they need to highlight so bloody much under their eyes lately? WHY?? Wrinkles don’t need help like that. UGGH.
