^ This should clarify a lot about my view on makeup. Ohwait, it explains everything perfectly. Although I should have labelled dramatic as 'no go zone' instead.
Anyway, GRRR! I'm so sick of people questioning my choice of makeup style. The way I see it, I am probably wearing the same amount of makeup as the next girl -if she's wearing noticeable makeup that is. Just smaller doses of this & larger doses of that. Not to mention DIFFERENT SHADES, hello people! Subtle & bold shades makes a huge difference in appearance & we could be wearing the exact same amount.
A majority of people aren't warmed up to the idea of contact lens & false eyelashes, that I completely understand but it doesn't mean they should label those who wear these as over the top, it just makes them seem small minded. Very small.
I don't have to explain myself but I'm so frustrated when my so called friends question me. Let me clear some things up.
- I don't go all hectic on my eyes because I want big wide dolly eyes. I'm actually going for that narrow & long sorta eyes, like Kim Kardashion, Megan Fox or Maiko Takahashi eyes sorta thing.
- I wear contact lens because I adore the unique designs & colours, not because I dislike my own natural colour. I have decades of my senior years to show off my natural eye colour but in the meantime while I'm still young, I'm going to freak out everyone with a new eye colour per day.
- I wear false lashes because I prefer the designs over natural lashes coated heavily with mascara. I don't like mascara. Kim Kardashian looks gorgeous with mascara but I have yet to see a non celebrity with nicely applied mascara. It looks very messy & clumpy, icky. Oh wait... Ekimura is actually the only non celebrity that I've seen with perfectly applied mascara... & I have tried to mimic her application with my DollyWink Long Mascara but I fail :(
- I wear foundation because yes I am insecure. About my facial skin tone that is. I don't have hyper pigmentation but I have a Homer Simpson 5am shadow, lol srs. Also some slight redness around my nostrils & light acne scaring, but that fades away eventually. Nothing bad, nearly everyone has uneven skin tones but I hate it & my face is probably at least 10x lighter than the rest of my body. (Oh & I only contour my whole face on days I'm going to take pictures, always contour my nose out of habit on days I wear makeup though.)
I don't want to look like the other Asian girls with one stroke of eyeliner, two coats of mascara, blush, lip gloss & foundation, it's very boring but I don't think my makeup application is unique & distinctive. It's average. To each his own, right?
I've written this post because I have a close male friend who tries to dilute me before introducing me to his pack of friends which I never asked for! It's so frustrating he sits & tells me I'm pretty but also while trashing bits of my appearance. I know he's trying to get me to rid myself of the extensions, wigs, contacts & lashes & it cuts me deep bro. Sndnakjdkabcaanaakjbfvbsfv!!
I know from this post it seems like I wear makeup on a daily basis but I honestly don't. I will admit I used to but these days I have disciplined myself not to.
I hope someone understands what I'm trying to conceive with all these jumbled words.
QUESTION: Can someone please suggest a medium to full coverage BB cream for me? I need to improve the condition of my skin. I want to eventually stop wearing foundation. I'm leaning towards Skin79 VIP Gold Super Plus only because the colour pink kinda repulses me now.... I have normal skin. Please help.
Namaste people :)
