Makeup 101

At 23, I'm finally beginning to move beyond the basics of makeup.

Walking amide the aisles at Sephora the other day, seeking my favorite mascara {they're real! lengthening mascara by Benefit Cosmetics}, and I simply felt overwhelmed, having never explored much further than mascara, liquid and pencil eyeliner, foundation for spot coverage, cover-up stick for same, and lipstick.

Today I made a big girl purchase of BB Cream, an egg-shaped blending sponge, eyebrow mascara, eyebrow pencil, and some darker highlighting pencil thing {I'll have to check the stick}. Oh, and replenished my liquid eyeliner - wet n wild's black Megaliner as it's super cheap and I go through it so quickly.

Initial thoughts:

  • what is so wonderful about this stuff that sounds like Star Wars-themed boo-boo ointment? {BB cream}
  • what is all of this stuff?
  • I just want to know how to contour
  • {multiple educated google searches}
  • why do women draw on extra eyebrow hairs? why am I?
Got home, attempted...wasn't terrible.

Future pictures may reveal the slow process of learning how to use lieu of that: kitty pictures. Naturally.
