Ever had 'Makeup block' ?

Recommended Posts

You know writers sometimes go through writers block where they know they want to write something, but they just don't know what?  Well, I window shop ALOT, and have things in mind to purchase when I have some free cash floating around (hardly ever lol).  However, sometimes when that time really does come around, I can't figure out what to buy.  I fiddle and fiddle and fiddle, question said product I was going to buy especially if it's pricey.  Go back home, dig up reviews, go to various places, look at different brands etc as if I had NO idea what so ever of what I planned to purchase.  Then, sometimes I say, should I really buy more makeup?  Or should I get a shoe?  Or a handbag?  Does this happen to anyone else?

It does happen to me. I stock up on mascara, always good to have some in backup. For the rest, even if i read reviews and made comparative studies, i still will question my choice. Last time it happened to me i questioned the Guerlain lipgloss i wanted to buy for over a year now. It turns out i was right because it's the same color as a cheaper version, but still sometimes i think i should just shut up and buy it.

Yes I do, but it is always because what I want to buy I need to save more for, then I sometimes end up changing my mind and cant decide what to get. I also get makeup block, were I no longer feel inspired or creative.

I do the SAME thing and then end up buying something entirely different.  And then later I'll see what it was I originally wanted to purchase and think, "Why didn't I get that?"  LOL  Sometimes I wonder if men have the right idea about us and our indecisiveness.

If I shopped high end, I think it would happen all the time. I do this when shopping for clothes. I still regret not buying a top I saw over 20 years ago! lol I would have looked so hot in that top...

 

but anyway, as far as makeup goes, I shop drugstore, so I'm more likely to buy something on the spur of the moment because of the great price and then regret it later mostly because it wasn't something I needed. How many lip products does a woman need anyway??? lol

hahaha that's true. I used to buy mostly drugstore and I'd regret buying some of the stuff. Since I've been shopping more high-end I've tried to be more careful about what I buy, just because, if I'm going to spend a ton of money on stuff I want to make sure I like it.

 

The one thing I have to say about high end vs. drugstore is I end up having a lot less regrets because normally if there's something I want and I just want to try it out to see if it's all it's hyped to be, I can just go to sephora and ask them to make me a sample. I try it out, come back and buy it. No regrets :)

I walked around Murale yesterday to put stuff on hold for a 20x the points event. Unfortunately, there was absolutely no make up I really wanted (no match in Vitalumiere Aqua, no interest in any of the Chanel Spring stuff I'd skipped, and of course, Calanque & Nouveau Monde were really blah when swatched... :/) So I ended up stocking up on cleanser and skincare. There's still stuff I want, but nothing I can really super justify, at least in mid-end and higher-end brands. I'm so boring. All I really want to collect at the moment is Revlon Colorburst lip products, and find HC Glamoflauge concealer.

    • When you have something that need to step foot out into the street, must you need to review myself to have decent and neat yet. Or maybe you need to makeup the back face, cool his hair a little. In addition to a face skin smooth screen, then hair neatly with the style chignon simple will help you look more outstanding. In these days of cold weather, your hair can be dull, rough or matted due to shampooing, so the bun hairstyle simple will help keep looks cute and more refreshed. If you are a person who love makeup, love beauty, then you should not skip this article! Here are 5 types of beautiful and simple hair that make you look great The Hairstyle On The Top This style of top bun is suitable for girls traveling by car or bus, not wearing a helmet, ensuring you are always neat, but also a little more height for you. This top bun style is a bit different, unlike the regular bun, which is the type of hair that knots, looking very different and youthful. This type of bun is also suitable for girls who have not yet washed their hair, can take advantage of the small strands of hair to make it more luxurious, hiding the scalp that begins to be greasy and itchy. Making: First, tie all your hair into a ponytail above the top of the head. You don't have to tie it too tight, you can loosen up to look natural, and you can release a few loose strands of hair around your forehead. Divide the hair into two equal parts, wrap the first strand around the rest of the hair and use a fixed clip to fix it. Take the rest of your hair, do the same thing, but wrap it in the opposite direction, and then use a peg to fix it. So the hairstyle on the top of your head is completed, it looks very dynamic right? Feminine Hairstyle This is the perfect way to put on a bun to wear a helmet, also neat enough for you to wear the turtleneck sweater and scarf without itching. It can be considered as a basic type of bun, decorated with a braided pigtail to add to the momentum, making your school and work days less boring. This is also a very romantic hairstyle, suitable for you to handle messy hair in dating. Making: Separate a small lock of hair in front of your face so that it will be braided later. The rest grabbed into a ponytail. From this ponytail, twist it into a simple twist and pin it with a toothpick. Use the hair in front of the face to form a strand of ponytail, tied temporarily with small rubber bands. Then, use your fingers to drag the braids to make the pigtail look loose and wider. Wrap it in the bun behind your head, then pin it with a toothpick and you're done. If you have a lot of loose hair, apply a little hairspray. Multi-layered Hair Drawn If you do not know how to create a chignon, you can still apply an extremely simple technique to create a special bun style, ready for parties. How to create multi-layered knots: First, comb your hair very smoothly, then take a part of the hair above the top of the head, divide it into two sections and tie the knot together. Combine some hair underneath each strand, then continue tying the knot together. Keep going until you have all your hair on the knots. Secure the tail with elastic. Afterwards, insert the ends into the hair and pin it with a toothpick to finish. If your hair is longer than the model in the photo, you can continue to tie the long strand of hair down the back of your neck like a ponytail, then twist it into a bun and pin it with a small clip. If desired, fingers can be inserted into the knots to create a thick and fluffy bun. For people with very smooth hair, spray extra hairspray or dry wax to prevent knots from falling out. Curly Hair Chignon This is a very elegant, elegant bun hairstyle, similar to the hairstyles of many famous stars attending the event, but it's actually very easy to do, you don't need sophisticated styling tools, but Just hair ties and toothpicks will suffice. Making: Take a lock of hair above the ears, twist it, and twist it to get more hair into the lock. Do the same thing on the other side of the lock, then tie the entire hair into a low ponytail behind the nape of the neck. Insert your fingers into the middle of the hair above the elastic to create a gap, then thread the entire end of the hair into this space, taking care not to let the ends pass through to reveal under the bun. If your hair is too long, you can place a portion of it on top, then clip it around with a toothpick. So your bun is done. Thanks to the double curls on the ear, your hair will look thicker, more fluffy and more sophisticated. You can drop a few strands of hair hanging down in front for a more feminine. Style Chignon This is a hairstyle suitable for the evening outings, creating a youthful look, a bit rebellious and suitable for dusty costumes. Making: If you do not have time, you can skip steps 1 to 4: These are the steps to tangle the hair on the top of the head to create a feeling of thicker hair, thereby making your face appear smaller. You can directly do it from the 5th step, which is to tie all the hair into a low ponytail, and then divide the hair into 2 parts. For the upper part, let's disassemble, then fold the lower part to cover this messy hair, forming a bulging bun. Use a rubber band to fasten, then divide the extra hair ends of the 2nd part into 2 smaller strands, use these 2 smaller strands to wrap around the elastic band and then pin with a toothpick to complete. If you want more momentum, you can use a curling iron a few curls around the face. hope you can choose for yourself a beautiful bun among the above. ------------------------------ Website: https://beautizon.co/
    • Try BB cream or CC Cream, avoid using foundations,I prefer using bb cream and cc cream as it suit my skin type
    • It is definitely the MICA! I cannot use any mineral products or anything containing Mica which sucks because all the good blushes and colors have Mica but as soon as I use it I break out.  I have no breakouts at all now that I am MICA free.
