Hello fellow bloggers/blog readers,
I wonder…why is make up such a big part of my life…
I personally adore make up and have a lot of fun playing around with it and trying out new looks.
I usually don’t have much luck when shopping for clothes and I feel like nothing fits me , looks right, or emphasises the right places. I often feel like most shops tailor clothes to fit slimmer people because that is the ‘normal size’ and what everybody should look like. But let’s be real, is everyone slim or curvy? No, there not. I would love for some shops to tailor clothes for other shaped people, without having to go to the ‘curvy section’, ‘petite section’ or any other specific section. Also as I am small I wear children’s clothes, and in the ‘Kids’ section everything is made for slimmer people because it is apparently not necessary to consider other body shapes as a child.
Anyway rant aside, I love makeup because I can express my self through it as if it was clothing. There are so many opportunities with makeup- and you’ll never grow out of it.
Some of my personal faves are:
• Bare Minerals Foundation
• Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
• Real Techniques brushes
• Tanya Burr Eyeshadow and Lipgloss
• MUA Eyeshadow Palettes
Make up is great because, like clothing, you can splurge and get so much pleasure out of it but also go the more affordable route and be happy with your savings.
I was having a personal debate with myself on a long car journey and thought ‘Could makeup be considered clothing?’ and then I thought ‘Yes, it does the same things as clothing but just for your face.’
Let me know your opinions on that, I’d love to know what you think.
Makeup is such a big part of my life because I can wear it knowing it will ‘fit’ me.
Never stop wondering…
