Do you ever look around and think you don’t do enough to keep yourself up? I mean, I’m surrounded by morning people. Well, honestly, as I leave later I’m probably surrounded by the exact oopppoosite of morning people, but once I get into the office my life choices are glaringly obvious. And, let me tell you, I am flawed.
So as I stare (glance?) at the girl doing her makeup on the subway and my first thought was, well at least I’m doing better than her…I mean, I did my makeup before I left. Sure, I left late, but I did it. But then, horrifically, I watched her. I watched her and watched her, then I watched some more, no really, for eons I watched only to realize I never put love into my makeup like that. Never ever. Ever. EVER. Well, maybe prom, or my brother’s wedding. But, with a time commitment like that, no wonder she needs to do in on the subway! Take every minute you can get sweetheart. Take your 15 stops and cherish your ride, because with a routine like that it will never be long enough.
I mean, the painstaking love to put 2 shades lighter foundation on your entire face, and I mean entire, every, last, inch of chin and forehead up to the hairline covered…not to mention the darker Mac powder that then goes on top…all leading to the lightly brushed bronzer just glazing the cheekbones…. I mean, if it takes that much work to look exactly how you started (she had beauty skin), no wonder I don’t take care of myself. Me? I slap some concealer on the red spots and bobs your uncle, we call it a day.
So, look sunken the natural way, or put about 4 layers and 3 hours into your face to come out looking exactly the same….you tell me. Seriously though, photoshop is the key.
