So, second day, and I already have a late post. Well, my "days" don't really end until I sleep. So there.
Today's post will be on makeup. And what I don't understand about my addiction to it.
As some of you may know, I recently (read since college) developed a small obsession. I now own more makeup than I really should own, and I don't know if I'll be able to stop myself from buying more. So that's the main problem.
Another main problem is I have some makeup items that I don't really know how to use properly. Most notable of these products is probably bronzer. I get the general idea about it, you know, make yourself look tanner, or perhaps change your face shape. But honestly, I don't quite understand the whole... mechanics? art? of bronzing your face.
So, one more thing I don't really get is, well, omg all those brushes! I have a bunch of makeup brushes now because they were cheap, and they were nice brushes, on sale (kinda). But! before I started using brushes, I was using those silly little sponge tip applicators which, honestly, did make things harder. However, there are just so many brushes! I have a foundation brush. But wait! I also have a stippling brush. Both are good with liquid foundations. And then I have my pressed powder, which doubles as my foundation sometimes, and I need to use a powder brush for that... @_@ Back in the day, I used to just use my fingers for the liquid foundations, and a ... sponge circle thingy for the pressed powder. And then there's the eye brushes. To me, there are 3 basic shapes: flat and thin, round, and rectangular and thick. So why are there -so- many brushes? Oh wait. They have all 3 types... in different sizes! And then there's the difference between synthetic and real hair. Someone please explain that to me?
Well, that's all I have time for today. I'll be back with more tomorrow!
