i am addicted to makeup now.
i never used to wear any makeup at all, other than some lip balm. but now, because my skin has been so terrible for the last year, i can’t go anywhere without wearing the works — primer, concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, mascara, lip gloss, powder.
i still hate wearing it, but it’s not an option not to. so, since i have no choice, i figure i ought to have some fun with it and play around. i just ordered a bunch of samples from four mineral makeup companies, so that gives me something to look forward to. i don’t know where in the hell i’ll store all these samples — my bathroom vanity is overflowing with tubes and jars and brushes.
the good thing about mineral makeup is that you don’t have to use that much. and they usually give you enough of the sample to last a good long while, so it’s cheaper too. supposedly mineral makeup is better for your skin. i can’t attest to that because my skin is so fucked up from other things (girls, don’t go anywhere near depo provera, trust me). but it definitely doesn’t have all those nasty chemicals in it that you can’t even pronounce. mineral makeup is usually 100% natural (depending on the company), and that seems like a good thing to me.
hopefully my new goodies will get here next week. i love online shopping (no makeup required).
