First, let me tell you that this is my first time to blog about my make up products. I’ve written about my make up obsession here and since then, I have joined the bandwagon of watching beauty gurus internationally and locally on YouTube.
After watching the series of entries in the NYX Face Awards 2015, I was actually encouraged to buy some make up and try it out for myself. I used to believe that I am allergic to make up and that I won’t be caught dead wearing one. However, things change and I just realized that I am proving myself wrong.
It was around November when my bestfriend got married. I actually remembered that I was so worried at that time because she won’t sponsor the make up artists for her entourage. It was a morning wedding and I don’t know where to find a HMUA at that time. I felt like I’m doomed. I clearly need to find a way to make myself look presentable.
I was relieved when my sister offered to do my make up. However, I need my own set of cosmetics and I actually didn’t know where to start. So I bought several stuff in my first haul that I actually didn’t use.
After several months, I decided to watch more local videos from beauty gurus on YouTube. I started buying affordable local products and several imported drug store products. My only worry at that time was that I don’t know how to put it on. I’m not an artist and I don’t know how to apply the make ups that I bought. LOL.
However, that didn’t stop me from buying and trying things out. I eventually found a BB Cream that I actually like and a press powder and lipgloss of the same brand. I also learned to read make up reviews before buying beauty products. I learned some make up lingos as well. I learned that my skin is oily but I’m not sure if it’s a combination of oily and dry. I’m still a noob to this thing but I’m still trying to learn.
I also bought some fake brushes from a co-worker just to try it out. I was able to learn how to apply the make up products by trial and error. I am actually patting myself on the back because I just learned how to use my brushes comfortably.
After several simple and cheap hauls, I became comfortable in swatching tester products in the drugstore or department store. Ino said that I’ve been spending a lot of time in those places and that usually gets us late for work.
It takes some getting used to. Baby steps. I’m still figuring things out and I’m still exploring.
I just had enough monetary resources this month so I was able to buy a new set of cosmetics. Here are the products that I bought:
