I mean females are competitive by nature and we are raised (unfortunately) to constantly be comparing ourselves to others. Don’t beat yourself up over it but don’t let it distract you from yourself. There are so many types of beauty, I guess I’d label the type of girl you are talking about as the ‘perfect canvas’. Most models are typically this way. Not necessarily the most attractive but they have amazingly strong features perfect for makeup and photographing.
I feel you. I get up at 5:30 every morning to get ready to be at work by 7. I always wear makeup. Not a full face all the time but I certainly don’t go bare. At least mascara and some concealer and contour. Do what makes you feel good. Don’t ever let other people make you feel bad about caring about yourself. Anyone who takes the time out of their own lives to comment on how you live yours obviously has their own self esteem issues to work through and that shouldn’t ruin your fabulous day.
I always use LUSH sugar scrub (mint julips) but a nice honey and sugar mix massaged into the lips is both exfoliating and moisturizing at the same time (plus all natural and tasty). I always look for Chapstick with Shea Butter in it. I’ve found some great ones in the organic sections of walgreens, cvs, target, most supermarkets.
I’ve been existing on a steady flow of work —> eat —> sleep.
MAC Hang Up over Currant lip pencil is lush. MAC Diva is my go to for a dark red. (I know I list mostly MAC but I figure it’s the most easily accessible for everyone)
I really miss my blonde hair. I’m actually thinking of taking my hair lighter again. Not platinum. But maybe a dirty blonde or dark ash blonde. Although having my natural hair is easy on my bank, overall hair health, feels silky and is low maintenance.
I love Peachstock by MAC with Spice lip liner.
That’s not a stupid question at all! My natural arches peak out further towards the ends of my eyes and then taper down so I basically plucked all the hairs that tapered after the highest point which actually works better for my face shape. I wax them upwards to give them that slant and pluck any stray hairs that are out of place. This will help my brows to grow back in the shape I desire. I then fill in with my new favorite, Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow in the dark taupe shade with an angled brush.
Dionysus provideth. Happy Thanksgiving!
