Me vs.Makeup

I love makeup I truly do but I have no idea how to do my makeup. I can kind of put on foundation but it always looks funky to me. I wear lipstick and some eyeshadow on occasion but doing a full face of makeup is completely unthinkable for me. I think I missed the lesson on how to be a girl because while every other girl was becoming an absolute master at makeup I must have been in the corner doing something else.
because of my complete inability to do my own makeup, I keep a very short makeup routine where I use ELF tinted moisturizer some Revlon pressed powder foundation and some darker colored ELF eyeshadow. that's been my routine anytime I want to put more work into my appearance but on most days I don't wear anything just opting to wash my face every morning and night.
over the years I have tried to work on learning eyeliner and doing more complex things but honestly there's only so much practicing someone can do before you think you might actually go insane. I have plenty of products and once in a blue moon I will get the drive to get everything out and try a more complex look but I always without fail end up looking like clown school reject.
now for as bad as I am doing makeup, I LOVE seeing all the cool things people can do with makeup it's truly impressive and blows me away. I don't think I'll ever stop being impressed with things these amazingly talented people can do with something that I am completely useless at.


  1. I totally agree with you, moreover I'm quite bad too! ;)
