make up schmake up

I recently attended a make up workshop by make up artist Marj Sia. Honestly, even on my way over I wasn't sure what I was doing because a make up workshop is something I never thought I'd attend. However, the winds of change blew in my direction and I allowed it to sway me in a new direction.

Make Up.

You see, I'm the kind of girl who can actually go out of the house totally bare faced and not have a care in the world. I just don't understand why I would need to put on make up if I'm leaving the house. However, as I became more involved in some TV guesting, I started falling in love with the art of putting on a different face.

I became fascinated with it.

The workshop taught me a lot of things that I did not know about make up. It taught me the basics and a few tricks here and there. I also learned how to combine  few palettes which is something that apparently every make up artist should know.

It felt weird. I felt so girly putting on those make up and also like a little girl learning so much about something that I should have learned a long time ago.

With that feeling was also the constant reminder of something else that I should have learned over a year ago but still hasn't. 

Primer, CC cream, concealer, powder, eyebrow, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush, lipstick, and contour. All these things sound so alien to me but for an entire afternoon, my head swirled with all these information.

Alongside these words were the constant need to stop myself from shedding tears. 

I came home at the end of the day with these, all giddy with the colors but honestly scared of what I'm gonna do with them. Am I really ready to change and be someone who covers herself with colors or am I just using these colors to hide someone I can't deal with right now?

This post seems to have taken a life of its own but I'm gonna let it be because that's what my blog is about isn't it? It's about the many crazy turns my life has and apparently, the fascination with make up is more than what I thought it was about.

Let's see where it goes ... or what it hides.

  1. Did you apply the makeup on your own? If you did, you did a great job! clap! clap!

    Learning something new even when we are older is good.


    1. Yes I did with the guidance of the one leading the workshop. :)
