M.A.C Cosmetics : 2012 Products (Part 1 of 2)
This is one of my favorite blush campaigns, definite cheekspo. A lot of y’all still seem overwhelmed by blush, would you be into it if I reblog/post good blush looks for ~~inspiration and ~~tips? I can start doing that.
I love R. blogging about make-up. Though I do believe in the power of prettying oneself up as a means to pep, I don’t remember the last time I put any on. It gets easier and easier not to. Make-up means looking at one’s face for more than two seconds, and I’ve a habit of avoiding the mirror in all bathrooms, more and more these past months. It’s a fast way to become awkward even with oneself! Anyway, what’s left in my make-up bag: various eyeliners, NARS semi-matte lipsticks, and MAC blush, which I swear by. Those names! “Hushabye” is my favourite. So yes, I think R. should definitely post more on this.
Yes to more makeup blogging, and blush blogging especially. I really didn’t wear makeup through most of my 20s (grad school + west coast + weird feelings about the idea of “trying” to “look” “pretty”) but over the past year or so I’ve basically worked up to wearing some makeup every day and reading makeup blogs and stuff (for reasons that I’m still trying to write about now but definitely were partially influenced by #feminist makeupping though there was related stuff going on with me also). My nail polish game is solid. I’m good at lipstick now, and am basically competent at brows and general eyeliner/shadow stuff. I’m still not really good at blush though. I’m totally in favour of it aesthetically, and I like it when other people put it on me, but I don’t really know how to work it, or how “contouring” works or whatever.
