My big passion used to be make up. I loved everything about it. It made my heart sing. Until I started beauty blogging. I wrote in depth about that so I won’t bore you with all the details, if you would like to read that first then come back here your more than welcome.
Beauty blogging destroyed my love of makeup (what I have learnt)
Since that whole episode I stopped wearing makeup, I stopped buying making up, I stopping watching beauty reviews/looks on makeup, I stopped caring about makeup.
This made me feel very sad but you can’t force yourself to love something when you’ve fallen out of love with something.
This morning I ended up watching a review on YouTube of the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture eyeshadow palette. This lead to me watching three more reviews on said palette. Watching the beauty gurus playing with the eyeshadow, swatching it, attempting to blend it (if you know anything of the palette I’m talking about you’ll know what I’m talking about!!!) made me crave makeup.
Eyeshadow was always my favourite makeup product, I have more eyeshadow palettes than I’ve had hot dinners and I decided to bust them out and put my face on.
I spent what felt like ages in the fuzzy world of makeup application, it was so relaxing and comforting, reminding myself what to do and what products to use. I went for a warm toned smokey eye with a slightly dewy light foundation and a nude lip.
I was home
For the first time in a while I felt really pretty. It boosted my confidence all day and I felt like myself, whenever I caught a glimpse in the mirror it shocked me! I kept forgetting I had it on but it was the nicest surprise everytime I was reminded.
I’m 100% not going to go back to beauty blogging, but I think this could be the start of me falling in love with makeup all over again. For the reasons I loved it before. Before the reviews, the blog, and the parties… this is how it made me feel.
I know some people will read this and think ‘what that the hell is she talking about, it’s only makeup?!’ But to me it’s creativity, confidence, relaxation and fun.
I would love to hear below if your into makeup, or what your passion is?
