Wow, it’s been a while since I sat down and watched several hours of makeup tutorials on You-tube, via my Tivo, but I did it again tonight. Now I remember my hesitation on doing the same. All of these women, big or small, black, white and everything in between are all so very young and so very beautiful! Not only could I not hold a candle to their beauty, but I am much older then they are, I don’t have any fancy makeup (and my collection is very small)…. not to mention that I don’t have a web cam or a video camera. lol Now I see why I don’t run out and buy one right away for my favorite “me time” activity… yes I still am that little girl inside that loves to play with makeup and play dress up, although now I hide to do it for the most part.
Well that is all I actually wanted to say in this early morning post, just a note, basically to remind myself why I am not on a video doing fun things… it’s because I would possibly never post them out of embarrassment. I mean, wow have you seen their collections… really have you? I am worried however on how these ladies are managing to keep up such an extensive collection and still manage to throw them out when the time on there cosmetics is up! Most of their makeup being gone ever 2 years… I doubt it!!!! Come on now gals!!! I am speaking to the pros and armatures alike, you really need to take a deep breath, and find what works for your personal collection and stick with as much as you can manage to give up in their allotted expiration time from open to spoiled and possibly bacteria laden. Don’t try to convince me that your Mom’s and Dad’s would be willing to replenish all that EVEN IF it were only every 2 years… lets face it mascaras, foundation, lipstick and glosses… they get replaced all the sooner then the 2 year mark. I will locate my chart on my desktop computer later and edit my post here to show the real time limits on opened makeup.
Am I jealous of what they have? HECK YA!! I am a former Cosmetologist and I love love love everything beauty, and would love to do nothing more then sit in front of a makeup mirror and play for months on end with everything, if I were given the chance. Now if only I could find a way to earn some extra coins online, then perhaps I would consider buying some of these expensive highly pigmented and gorgeous makeup, brushes and the omg so beautiful eyeshadows. We will see if my crafts or my paintings may someday sell and make this poor gal a few coins… then we will see. Until then rest assured that I will not be scaring off all of you and your children any time soon my imaginary viewers of the internet.
Good night… errrr Morning (yup sure enough after 2am) from this gal who is in enough pain that she cannot sleep, but who got a moments escape watching videos from the comfort of her high back loveseat (supportive for a bad/painful neck).
