Lets face it. As much as we like to believe people are not superficial, first impressions ARE everything! Now by all means I’m not saying everyone should look their absolute best at all times (because I certainly don’t) I am just saying lets face it, in this industry of blogosphere, You Tube and social media, it seems looks do play a very large part for everyone if not anyone to pay attention. Lets face it, it is a sad and ugly truth. There does seem to be a kind of look that works for most in this content creating online world. All I’m saying is I can only do MY best, to at least play the part.
Like most little girls I was into make up and was given a make up kit here and there to play around with. But truth be told, I didn’t really get into make up until I was at least 23. Now a days that is probably classed as super late. As much as I love make up now, I don’t wear it all the time but when I do I feel special. It’s funny how make up can do that to a person. See how I said person, because as I am politically correct. Make up now, is advertised for both genders with the little help of social media. Honestly the only time I wear make up, is when I’m going somewhere special and when I’m creating You Tube videos (because a girls got to keep some level of appearance).
Below are two of my examples of a day to night look. Using some of my favourite brands –
Rimmel Eyebrown pencil in brown/black, LÒréal Brow Artist medium brown
LÒréal Infalliable Primer, LÓréal True Match Foundation in Cappuccino/ 8N
LÒréal False Lash Telescopic in dark brown, LÒréal Eyeliner Super Star
Urban Decay Primer Potion (original)… and still the best!, MAC Eye Shadow in Brown Down
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC50, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Sun Power
Essence Eye Shadow in Triple Choc/ 16, Revlon Matt Balm in Fierce
Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang, Nivea Lip Balm in Sooth
Sleek Blush in Sahara/ 934, Barry M Kohl Eyeliner in Black
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, Eco Tools Blush and Eye Shadow brush
No7 Eyeliner Smokey Eyeliner Brush, Essie Nail Polish in Wicked/ 49
I must say I really am enjoying a natural or nude look the most.
