Makeup is an extremely frustrating thing. Makeup is like working out but it is for your face, but it only works if you do it right. I can not tell you how many YouTube tutorials I have watched on how to contour, blend, and how to achieve the perfect wing, but I still have no clue what I am doing. For a really long time I only used eyeliner and mascara because those things are easy, but lately I have been interested in face make up. I started off just using cheap products from Walmart, but those didn’t exactly work out so I thought that the problem was that they were cheap. Then i started buying very expensive make up in hopes to improve my look, but it turns out that the make up brand was not the problem, it was just that I am really bad at doing make up. One day I spent about three hours watching videos on how to contour my face so that it would appear skinnier, but every time it just turned out looking like I rubbed some sparkly dirt on my face. It is so annoying when I see all these girls whose faces are beaten for the gods and they look like models and then you look at me and it looks like I was just rolling around outside. Even though it is not working out for me, I will not give up. I am very determined to at least be decent at doing my make up. It would be great if I could master the craft before prom next year so I don’t have to pay someone else to do it. Who knows maybe I’ll get good enough at it that people will pay me to do theirs, we’ll see.
