Since Day 1 of the 7-Day Blog Challenge, I haven’t managed to keep up with my normal blogs that I had planned for, and I’ll be honest; I did try to keep up by doing both but omg that turned into a shit-fest quick! What the fuck was I thinking?! …clearly, I wasn’t thinking lol.
ANYWAY, when Caroline sent our Day 5 challenge through, I was stoked straight away because I knew exactly what I was going to do!
COMBINEDDD of course! My normal blog will cover Day 5!
So, I had planned to originally blog about a fad, beauty guru’s on YouTube have been trying out recently called; “The Power of Make-up”. I gave it a go!
However, before trying it out, I kind of wasn’t a fan. I think because, lately, I’ve seen quite a few ‘Tubers following in suit, like sheep (probably gona’ get burned for saying that lol) with the fads that come out. But that’s just my opinion ha! And I mean hey! I’m here RIGHT NOW getting ready to blog about it all, from my experience. Contradicted myself totally ha ha!
PLUS, I’m not one to indulge in photo’s let alone “Selfies”, and with this little fad comes both of those! Arrgghhh! What have I got myself into!? …oh well, too late to turn back! It’s all about the experience now!
* * * *
Ever wanted to look like someone else?? DON’T! (I tried it once and it didn’t work out! Go read about it over there --->>> Catfish Confession). Ever wished you could do your makeup flawlessly, like you see on your favourite YouTube beauty guru’s?! PRACTICE!! PRACTICE!! PRACTICE!!!
I’m still in the practice boat, so by no means am I a makeup artist. I just love to love, obsess, adore, appreciate, play around with, get excited over, purchase, try out MAKEUP! Didn’t you know it has no rules, size, gender – only, sexuality labels on it?! And we all know; Kylie doesn’t like to follow rules! So make-up is perrrfffff. And HOLY SHIT BALLS guys! It washes off at the end of it all – so CHILLLL! Don’t stress.
MOVING ON!! For ME; - The Power of Make-up means, I can use it as a form of therapy to help with feeling happy or good about myself if I’m having a crappy time. Some people like food or sex or drugs or spa’s or adrenaline type of shit, I like. No! I love make up.
Make – up gives me the power to transform myself into, another “looking” version of Kylie without having to lose or change who KYLIE is. Do I even make sense!? …Bloody magic stuff, I tell yaah!
I’d be a lying asshole if I said it doesn’t give me confidence. Because, it does! I like to look at it from a different angle though! I like to think it just gives me a confidence boost. I feel pretty, sometimes beautiful or amazing (depending if my shit has co-operated during the day/night or if it decided to be a defiant mongrel ha ha), I usually get a defiant mongrel, and this case was no different!! BUT, in saying that; I don’t need make-up, to be confident anymore.
Once upon a time, I use to hide behind Make-up, I actually hated leaving the house without it. I wore it for the wrong reasons.
During this experience; - I did half of my face with make-up on and left the other half naked as fuck (as seen and done by the YouTube babes). My god! When I saw the difference, I was shocked. It was like I was looking at two completely different people. That was “The Power of Make-up”!! I couldn’t believe it, but you know what?! I didn’t get upset like I probably would’ve in the past. Instead I could NOT stop cracking up ha ha!
I surprised myself with my reaction. Uhh, I didn’t flip my shit?? WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!!!?? Where was Kylie!!? I kept showing my friends and Wifey, telling them that I look like I’m in jail or something from the lost & found box ha ha!
Hmm. So, on a more serious note! Pros and Cons of this experience? (not gona babble, just jot a few little bits!)
What an eye opening experience! I am proud of myself for going through with the whole thing! Going into this, I asked myself; What does “The Power of Make-up” mean to ME??! ...I couldn’t answer straight away. It’s actually taken me a little bit to word this.
The Power of Make-up is; fun, exciting, strengthening, empowering, positive, proud moments, changes, happy, adventurous, playful. THIS is what “The Power of Make-up means to ME! …
What does “The Power of Make-up” mean to you?!
Keep smiling, Stay happy XOXO
