Here’s a random fact: I am 20 and I still do not know how to put makeup on my own.
Girls my age these days seem to have mastered the art of makeup while I, on the other hand am not even able to choose what shade of face powder matches my skin tone. And I don’t actually know if face powders come with different shades, for crying out loud! Gosh. Am I already irritating your eyes with my ignorance? I am sorry.
But seriously, I have no idea when it comes to makeup. What more for eyeliners and all these others beautification thingies that they put on their faces? I don’t have anything against it; in fact, I idolize those who can do it on their own. It’s just that, first; I always had my mother do my makeup when I have to attend special occasions when I was a child (and her makeup means, powder and lipstick, that’s all!), second, I never had the chance to explore any kind of makeup because I didn’t grow up in an environment that requires much of it.
It’s just now that I obliged myself to try putting makeup on myself. Since I decided to cosplay, I figured I have to learn to do it on my own.
Soon enough, our new vanity mirror arrived last morning and I excitedly tried what my sister’s makeup kit can offer. I found a foundation, liquid eyeliner and a red lipstick. Applying foundation is as easy as 1,2,3 hahaha and I’ve been using lipstick these past few months so I didn’t encounter much problem with that (I mean, nobody ever does, right?). But all is said and done; I was left with the liquid eyeliner. I tried my best to stop my eyelids from moving and my hands from shaking but ended up with almost zigzag lines in my eyelids. In short, I failed big time!
I just hope online tutorials can help me with this. Lol.
