Day 8: Do You Like Experimenting With Makeup? / Day 9: Favourite Brand
Trying to do some catch-up on posts! The end of semester crunch caught me pretty badly.
I love playing around with eyeshadow colors and weird lip colors, but I only ever do it at night. I try not to do anything crazy day-to-day because my style of dress is already slightly unorthodox, so I don’t want to look like a walking freakshow. It makes me sad because there are so many things I’d love to try with my makeup, but I know I wouldn’t be able to wear them. There’s also the fact that if I experiment and mess up in the morning, I won’t have enough time to fix it and do a new look.
Yesterday I actually tried experimenting for the first time in a while. I used Meow Cosmetics Tutankhamen with Fyrinnae Mephisto in the outer corner. It was such a gorgeous color combination but I messed up my eyeliner so I had to wipe it off. I was so sad!
I don’t really have a favorite brand, as I’ve yet to encounter a brand that does it all for me. That and I’m not a fan of the cultish brand loyalty that often rears its head in the beauty community. I especially don’t get the hype over MAC — I find their products spectacularly underwhelming and even when visiting a counter or store I feel very little motivation to buy. That said, while I don’t have a favorite, I do have favorites. Here are a couple:
- Urban Decay
- NYX Cosmetics
