Can I just buy it all? Please?

So, I’m not going to lie.  I have never really been a “make-up” person.  My mom barely wore any make-up so I didn’t grow up watching her do her hair and make-up everyday.  Instead she taught me to wear powder, some blush, and that’s about it.  I started adding eyeliner in high school but I always wore it on my water line.  Seriously, I had NO IDEA what I was doing!  Luckily, I had the skin complexion that I didn’t really NEED to wear the foundation and concealer to cover up blemishes and pimples.

I’m not kidding, this went on FOR YEARS!  Even four years ago, I wasn’t really wearing make-up.  Some foundations, some blush, and some eyeliner.  That’s it.

Circa 2012

Don’t get my wrong.  I thought I looked gorgeous!  There is nothing wrong with not wearing make-up AT ALL!  But I kept seeing my friends apply their make-up with such precision and professionalism.  I didn’t know how they did it.  They took FOREVER to get ready but always looked flawless!  I was jealous because I had NO IDEA what I was doing.  Especially when it came to “the wing” or the “smokey eye.”  I also thought I looked like a clown because I never really wore make-up before.  Plus, seeing 12 and 13 year olds apply make-up better than me kinda made me sad (in fact while I was watching make-up tutorials today, I seriously watched someone who was 12 years old).

Lately, I have really been experimenting with my make-up and have come to love it!  I have learned what colors go well with my eyes, I have figured out how to apply my eye shadow, how to correctly apply mascara without getting it all over my face, and I stopped wearing my eyeliner on my water line.

I woke up today and decided to watch some make-up tutorials.


I actually figured out how to apply a winged eyeliner and I did some contouring.  Now of course I want to go and spend all of my money on make-up.


I feel beautiful in both of my before and after picture.  However, I really and truly feel confident and amazing when I apply my make-up in a new way and nail it!
