I’ve never been that great with makeup application. I don’t really know what I’m doing when putting on any makeup. It’s like a guessing game for me. I mean, I get mascara. I know how to do that (RANDOM FACT: my very first mascara was blue, oh the 90’s), but I WANT to know how to apply all the makeups, instead of constantly asking myself: – “What is this powder for?” – “How do I put 3 different shades of eye shadow on and make it look like that?” – “Oh, you mean that is supposed to look good when I put it on my face?” – This leads to lots of searching for online makeup tutorials or removing makeup (so many times).
If I do mess up my makeup I’ll usually just say, “Pfft, oh well.” and move on. If I’m headed out on a date with my man or out for a girls’ night, I’ll try a bit harder. I might even start the whole thing over, especially if I screw up my eyeliner… multiple times. I’ve been using water and cotton swabs to start over, but turns out there’s actually something better: Eye makeup remover! Weirdly enough, this is my first time using an actual makeup remover. Almay sent me some Oil Free Gentle makeup remover, and it’s been working pretty awesome. Especially when starting over/correcting my eyeliner mistakes. I’ve been folding them into little corners to define the eyeliner edges. Works pretty well.
Do you start your makeup over 80 gazillion times (like me)? OR, are you pretty savvy when it comes to makeup application?
