Sorry it’s been a while I know. But I’m back now!
So girls (and boys), I’m guessing I’m not the only one who loves to do random makeup seshes for absolutely no reason, when I’m going absolutely nowhere, on a random day, while I have a large pile of homework staring me in the face. Do the homework and stay on top of school? No thank you. Do my makeup and then parade around my house in it or even take my dog for a walk? YES PLEASE!
A couple of weeks ago it was one of those days: It was a Sunday afternoon, the sun was shining and my dreaded homework sat untouched in my bag where I’d chucked it at the end of my bed as soon as I’d arrived home from school. As you can probably guess, I left the homework where it was and headed instead for my small and basic makeup bag. I don’t have much makeup and can’t really be bothered to buy more so instead I waited silently in my room until my sister left the house then made a beeline for her makeup (please don’t tell her, I’m bagging on her not reading this – pray for me if she does).
Now let’s talk about this particular makeup look I did on this uneventful Sunday, whilst still in my pyjamas. Okay, I’m ashamed to say it but I’m not one of those free souls who can just grab their makeup and without any guidance create a stunning, creative look. I can’t just snatch this colour and that colour and wack it on my eyes and blend this and that and look amazing. So instead I watch tutorials and do my makeup along with them: they do their highlight, I do my highlight. Magic. And on this particular day my aim was to conquer the almost impossible eyeliner. Now, I CANNOT do eyeliner. I just can’t. My hand wobbles and the next thing I know I’ve drawn a thick black line halfway up my eyelid, smack into my eyebrow. Not a look I’d go for, trust me. But today was a special day, the eyeliner fairy must have been watching over me because I did it! I DID EYELINER. And I did it well and evenly, if I do say so myself.
I wanted to practise doing a full face of makeup and so with this in mind I turned to one of the biggest make up queens of all time: James Charles. I followed his video step by step using my cheap supermarket make up while he used his million dollar makeup, making one exception: he did a flaming red eye whilst I opted instead for a more icy, pinky – purple look. I won’t even lie and say this look took less than an hour. Because it did not. It took almost a whole day while I smudged and redid, went wrong and redid again and so on. I went wrong SO MANY TIMES. But I must say, despite that I was proud of the end result and shocked I’d even managed eyeliner.
Does anyone else do their make up on a lazy day, and you’re happy with it and think ‘Perfect, I can do this for the party tomorrow then’? Then, the party comes around, you’re getting ready, you attempt to do the makeup and it all goes horribly wrong. Suddenly you forget how to even put mascara on (an exaggeration but it’s necessary in proving my point hehe). Well this look was one of those looks. I’ve not been able to recreate it since and as for eyeliner, I’ve just gone back to drawing it halfway up my eyelid.
Wow I hope I’m not the only one.
This was the final result:
Well thank you if you made it all the way to here, through all my rambling – I appreciate you. I hope at least some of you can relate to me hehe.
Until next time,
