New things are always a bit unsettling at first.
Like quitting your job. Putting all your faith in creating and selling cards is risky but if it’s what I want to do I should do it right?
I can’t figure out the best way to go. I’m just concerned if I can make a living.
I need to believe in myself, take the leap.
But life isn’t a film and as much as I want it to be, it’s not.
I don’t even know what to write.
Now I’ve stopped moaning I can write about makeup again, because looking glam makes everything okay. Well no it doesn’t, chocolate does but makeup makes me feel like me.
I bought some more makeup the other day. Of course. Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation in literally their palest shade and it’s a dream. It’s more liquified than the Arbonne foundation but the coverage is beautiful. It’s really a personal preference but I honestly think it’s worth it. The coverage is even and full. It did not disappoint.
What did disappoint was I re-purchased their Illuminizing face powder. I really liked it last time, it gave me a soft velvet finish with a natural glow. Felt like a shimmery princess. Anyway, when it arrived it was broken and it ruined my life. I mean first world problems and all, but you know.
Anyway, haven’t really done any interesting makeup looks recently just been sticking to my basic messy cut crease. I fist use the Too Faced Born This Way concealer in the colour “Snow”. I use a Sigma Kabuki brush to cover up any dark circles under my eyes and use a sort of swirling and dabbing motion to essentially fill in my pores before applying my foundation. The foundation that I am currently using is the Urban Decay one. I stipple this all over my face with my Sigma brush. I avoid applying foundation directly under my eyes. Someone told me once that putting foundation under your eyes gives the impression of them being dragged down and I’ve just never risked it. Moving on, because my Illuminizing powder could not be saved, I use the Too Faced “Peach Blur Powder” to set my foundation. I fill in my eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil, my favourite is Benefit Precisely my Eyebrow Pencil (fun fact). For eyeshadow I’ve been using an Arbonne shade, that I have completely forgotten the name of. It’s a slightly shimmery nude. I apply that all over. Smudge “Dusky Rose” from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam palette. I add the Arbonne “It’s a long story” mascara and that’s my eyes done. Then Arbonne bronzer to add some contour, blusher in the shade “ballet” and Too Faced “lip injection” in clear (on my lips just to be clear) and that is my makeup done. Sounds a lot but it’s not for me.
What I like about Urban Decay is they’re cruelty-free and vegan. Got to protect the little animals. I don’t see why cosmetic brands test on animals. There are so many brands and decent brands that don’t use rabbits as their test subjects, so it begs the question why do they do it?
Companies test on animals to provide data that they can use to defend themselves when they are sued by injured consumers. If cosmetic products blind or poison animals during tests, they often sell them anyway. They use the fact the products have been tested to support the claim that they are conscientious.
