Make up?? Hmmm……

When it comes to make up I really don’t have a clue what I am doing. I generally don’t wear any for that simple reason. I used to when I lived in the big city and had no kids. No excuse but it is my reality!

I think way back then, I cared a bit more but nowadays with work- hey I don’t think the kids care if wear it or not. They just turn up to school!! But saying that I do like to try stuff out when I do have time.

I’ve looked at videos on YouTube for applying mascara really well. They work if you can see what your doing. I have to take off my specs and honestly, I can see but I can’t see that well to make an amazing wonderful job of mascara.

I’ve got the mirror in the bathroom to help- you know the one with normal size and super zoom. I even saved some stuff on a board in my IG account. Honestly it isn’t helping my predicament of choosing to wear make up.

It gets a bit worrying when you hear about concealer, foundations, primer (I thought that was for houses), blush, eye shadows, liquid mascara, normal mascara and don’t get me started there.

You go shopping for a new mascara. In your inexperienced way and you stop at the make up isle or isles I should say. Now what kid of mascara do you need?? There is something for everything. I literally shit myself because I just need some black stuff to stick to my lashes and not run. 🙄 It’s just not that easy!!

You then sit back and look at everything. I mean everything. I catch someone else looking And I take a quick sneak peaks to see what they’re getting. I hate it!! Let me shop for clothes and shoes any day! Less stressful.

And now. Here I am. Sitting here thinking about getting ready to go out with the girls and I am thinking…….. to make up or not make up. If I do make up- what shall I do because bear in mind this is country bumpkin territory. Now I have waxed my brows so they are tidy- non-existent but tidy!!

Oh I think it will make me feel more in the spirit of going out. You know taking pride in me after all I did wax the brows. So maybe just a little to make me feel better. That would mean a little Thin Lizzy around the edges, some mascara and maybe lippy. Shit my Maxted isn’t looking the best! Shit I need to go shopping again 😱

Ah shoobies, that’s next weeks worry!! So let’s get a moving for today!!

So when I go out tonight, I will think I look ah- mazing because I have gone to quite a bit of effort and I really think that should be acknowledged. 🤣 Really in my mind I will look like this

But the reality is quite different considering I am a lot whiter and have super thin lips.

So when you see me out and I have some make up on – please comment on how lovely I look bearing in mind it will look shite. I made an effort. An extra 5-10 minutes of my day with the zoom lense!

Some compliments may inspire me to buy more 😂😂
