*taps mic* Hello? Is this thing on? Anyone still listening?
I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I’ve done an actual, honest-to-Jim post. I’m still trying to catch up with school stuff but I found a bit of time, so consider this a half-post, or a three-quarter-post if you’re feeling particularly generous.
I hung out with my best friend, Maggie, last weekend and we decided to play around with makeup, as girls do. She didn’t have any base on hand with her, and although I have a lot of mismatched foundations (a plethora, some might say…), we’re so different in skintone that none of mine even remotely fit her. (Plus I’ve got golden undertones whereas she has pink.)
I did, however, have a concealer which matched her almost exactly, so I used that to cover up her spots and to even out her tone.

It was super fun getting to do her makeup, and further cements my belief that I’m in the wrong industry and going to school for the wrong thing :P Maybe I’ll have a quarter-life crisis and drop out to go be a makeup artist. Probably not.
Anyway, I hope to be back at full steam in a few days! I’ve got three Julep boxes to swatch and reviews galoooore!
