I was asked a while ago about my makeup routine and it’s taken me just about a month to figure out what to say.
To be honest, I was quite the tom boy up until recently. I lived in sweat pants, oversized hoodies, and sneakers. Up until two years ago, I maybe wore eyeliner twice at most. Senior prom was one of those times, and the second time might’ve been to a wedding?
I consider a dolled up day to include some winged tipped eyeliner and a quick brush of mascara. It was only recently that I learned how to use liquid eyeliner. Although I admire the women who are extremely meticulous and creative with their daily makeup routines, it’s incredibly hard for me to find time (and motivation) to follow suit. Unlike most makeup gurus who can get the eyeliner right on the first go, I usually have to try extra hard not to stab myself in the eye with the tip of the brush. If I’m lucky I’ll get it right on the second try, but it usually takes a solid 10 minutes to avoid looking like an 8 year old was let loose with a set of markers to scribble over my eyelids with.
I wish I had more insightful things to say about makeup. Maybe you could leave me with tips you’ve come to master or fun ideas to try in the future!
What are your makeup routines like? Are there any techniques or looks you’re looking to try to work into your daily routines?0
