make me up
One of my new favorite shows is Jersylicious on Style. It's about a hair salon in Jersey. It's all the drama and quirkiness of Jersey Shore, without the hot tub and alcohol. (And don't get me wrong, I watch The Jersey Shore too. Judge me not.) Anyway, I've actually learned a few tips from the show. I finally learned how to tease my hair. I can now accomplish some volume at my crown, though I still don't subscribe to the Utah-hair-poof, or the more local Clearfield square hair. The key is to take their tips and take it down about ten notches. I've also started doing my eye makeup pre-foundation. It makes it so you don't have to clean up eyeshadow under your eyes after application. Makes sense, right?
$38 from Sephora. I'm considering buying this travel size for $17. I think it will last a long time, as my sample has and it's like 0.4 ounces.
I love makeup. I frequently have dreams where I have an unlimited supply of it. But I'm a girl whose makeup bag is filled with L'Oreal and Cover Girl. Not Ulta and NARS. The only thing I spend more money on is my concealer. I use Mary Kay because all other concealers don't even come close to concealing what I need concealed. I also used to use Mary Kay foundation, but I found a L'Oreal product I like even more. (L'Oreal Infallible Advanced Never Fail 16-hour foundation). So does a primer fall into the "worth it" category?
Speaking of "worth it," my mom bought me the generic equivalent to Lattise. I read the insert and one of the side effects was indeed that it may turn my eyes brown. I have nothing against brown eyes, it's just that I have green ones. They already went from blue to green...I don't think I could handle another color change. Spencer asked me if I'd rather have green eyes or long eyelashes. I picked green eyes, but then I researched it online and there haven't been many reports of eye-color change. Spencer reminded me that there was like a one-in-a-bajillion chance that a seizure medication would give me Lupus, and I was the one-in-a-bajillion. But, I ignored him and used it for a few nights. Each morning when I woke up my eyes were all pussy and ached! I decided "not worth it." This whole eyelash thing kinda freaks me out. I'm worried it will be a Phen-phen situation and years from now millions of women will have freakish eye defects or brain tumors or something. I hope not, because everyone I know is doing it. So, alas, my eyelashes will remain their current length while my mother-in-law's eyelashes are like 10 feet long. She looks like Snuffleupagus. Life is so unfair.
