Hi fives and hugs all around! Let us love on each other today because we did good and we have done good! I’m feeling great and positive vibrations is what I’m emitting raiabounao!!! At the beginning of this year I wanted growth in myself in every aspect of my life and this included the way I present myself. I learnt that when you take care of yourself on the outside as well as inside, you become more self aware and in that more confident in taking up tasks like achieving goals!!!!
So what did I do you ask, I bought make up. Hehe…….I haven’t put on make up in years so I decided to try it out. No, this is not a inspiration/motivation post….nope. These are the findings of my new make up use and I’m sure the ladies can relate.
- Make-up is messy
I bought a stick foundation and even that gets messy on its own. I have a blender that I think should be washed everyday or be disposable and come in sets of 30 or something like that. When women put on make up, we seem put together…….that’s true until you see the make up ‘utensils’ themselves. It’s a paradox in some way. Either this is true or I have no idea how to use make up and that’s why it’s messy. But come to think of it, why don’t make up tutorials show us all the products they used after using them………hmmmmm….
- Make-up gets everywhere
I learnt that the hard way. So now I never put on make up before dressing up and also to covering the neck area of my clothes as I’m doing my make up. This however does not mean that at the end of the day the neck area of everything or when I hug someone that a brown stamp of foundation will not be there. So I prevent but at the end of the day I make no promises.
- Make-up confusion
There are so many products and so much information on the products that I don’t even know which one will work and which one will not. And by work I mean the one that my friends who are make up gurus will say, “Yes that works.” And don’t get me started on the number of things someone applies on the face. Considering it is just one face. Hehe make up people don’t shoot, I’m a newbie who does not know what she is talking about.
- Make-up time
To look good takes time and you cannot do it while walking out of the house. Because you need to check how exactly you have put this and that. Recently I have been waking up earlier just so that I can get to finish up my make up before I step out. And as a newbie, obviously I will mess up frequently. So it even takes a longer time for me.
- Make-up Money
It is not cheap my friends. If you want quality and or have a sensitive skin, it feels more like an investment. Make up is truly an investment. Just walk into a beauty shop and ask for something and see what I mean.
All in all, I love how it turns out. I’m not too bad at it. It is these kinds of things one does to make themselves feel appreciated by themselves. I like make up as new as I am to it. It brings a well together nature out and we all know that is an incredible feeling. I love being female and on this Women’s International Day it is no different. I like how long I take to be ready and having my face plastered on people’s shorts and tops. I like that I buy make up that suits me.
I like that I am a strong woman with a goal and vision and a unicorn heart of gold. I may have unhealthy habits, such as: Fries, Skittles, Cake,Tea, Watching late night movies on work days, Watching late night YouTube videos on work days, Pizza, Soda……..oh I should stop there…….hehe alright then. Anyway, this video is about women for women so watch it and be inspired!! Happy International Women’s Day!!!!!
Thanks for reading and have a good one!
