I’m sure you’ve all seen the whole POWER OF MAKEUP videos all over the internets….I know, they’re a few months old, and I’m a bit late to this little GAME… 😛 it’s all just a game, you realize that by now I hope? Yes.
And of course, I support the whole makeup makes me feel better movement…BLAH, BLAH, BLAH… BUT.
Must we REALLY wear SO MUCH of it to make ourselves feel better?
I know I don’t have to. And I’m gong to show you that neither do YOU. Because for CRIPES sake you guys… I am 49.5 years old…if you are anywhere’s UNDER that number? You really DON’T need to wear a ton of makeup.
I like my face without makeup, and if you know me, I often go out and about without anything on my face. In fact, I met one of my readers for the first time and who has become a good friend btw without a STITCH of makeup on my face…ok lie…I was wearing a bright pink matte lipstick that I shared with her….but still…nothing else was on my face. That’s how comfy I am in my own skin. It’s MY skin…and I take damn good care of it! I am never scared to leave the house without any makeup on my face. #OwnIt
BUT, heck… I am a beauty blogger. I like makeup! And just a TINY bit of makeup? Makes just that much of difference for me.
All I’m wearing is a bit of foundation-Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup in case you are wondering, and I LOVE it….if you want a full review let me know in the comments and I shall obey. Also mascara-I find mascara really makes me look wide awake. Also BLUSH. Hey, once a blush fiend, always a blush fiend! I do have a natural rosy cheek, but if I wear foundation, I really do like adding back that colour to my cheeks…it just makes me look younger, right? NO CONTOUR. NO HIGHLIGHT. NO COLOUR CORRECTOR. None of that crap is what I use in my every day makeup.
Also, just a bit of lip balm…most days that’s all I wear when I’m out. Although lately, I really have been enjoying a lot of lipsticks and wearing them, because I just don’t wear eyeshadows anymore. I give up man. I don’t care anymore about new releases, I don’t want to care, and I don’t buy them or any palettes anymore. DONE. Like a good steak dinner I am done. I just don’t see the point of them now. With my aging, hooded eyes, you won’t see any eyeshadow, right? So WHY bother? Yeah, that’s my view now. Waste of time and money for me. But hey-you do YOU and I’ll do ME, right? It’s just makeup, and it’s all fun in the end.
So, there you go…what just a LITTLE bit of makeup can do for you. And I don’t mean to dis the whole LOADS of makeup movement…wait…maybe I do HAHAHA. I am really, REALLY tired of all the LOADS of makeup I see on such young and pretty faces these days. It’s alarming! And I don’t understand it at all?! If someone can enlighten me and explain it all, please do so??!! I’m a true GEN-X, and if you are like me, then you also don’t get the whole I WANNA BE LIKE so and so that’s going on these days. My generation was all all about being an individual and doing YOU and not listening to THE MAN…hahaha I guess now I’m talking about the makeup man! Why does everyone want to conform so badly and look the same? What is driving this insanity? Why aren’t girls happy with their faces? IT BOTHERS ME SO MUCH.
I’d really like to know what you think. I have my own thinks, but I want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let’s chat about makeup these days and what’s going on. Maybe you have some thoughts that I haven’t thunk! SHARE.
