Makeup & Selfies: What I do when I have some spare time and I’m bored + a short history behind it
Keywords: Makeup and selfies!
When I feel I haven’t had makeup for some time and the day is really boring & I have nothing else to do… I pull out my makeup brushes and other makeup stuff so I can practice/experiment with my face. LMAO
Even as a kid, my MUM would paint my face with makeup! Yes, my mom was my first makeup artist haha!
While growing up… I used to just watch my Tita Tanya put on some makeup. Baka matuto daw ako sa katitingin ko sa kanya habang nagme-makeup. I can recall that she had this blue liquid eyeliner which she applied on my lids – and I loved it! It sparked my interest more…
Although I didn’t put much makeup on my face too frequently back in HS and College, my liking for makeup didn’t just fizzle out. I would sometimes order lipstick and eyeshadow palettes from Avon so I have a makeup kit of my own (college days). The only makeup nightmare I’ve had was when I was on a “trying-to-moving-on-but-still-in-denial-and-can’t-get-over-a-break-up” stage at the age of 18-ish – that was my first official heartbreak! Ate Maricel, a co-worker of mine at Baker’s Plaza knows about this (LOL)! Oh man! I looked liked a spaced out, teary-eyed emogirl with very thick eyeliner while tending the cash register! Yikes! I called it makeup theraphy back then… now I call it makeup nightmare/disaster! ahahaha…
Mommy Lou also played an important role in my knowledge and application skills for make up. She would try all sorts of branded and never-heard (because I have no knowledge of and I’ve never really heard of the brand before) cosmetics and makeup techniques on me – I was her canvas. hihi! We watched makeup tutorials on Youtube. I believe I have lots of photos of those too in Facebook… but too many to post here. I haven’t done any recent ones but these photos I inserted here are from last year’s (I just saw these now after months have passed and I again scoured my lappy for pictures to post on this blog. hihi)
