TO DO: Wear More Makeup

Now this one might seem a it strange. Who makes it their goal to wear more makeup?

I’m not someone who wears makeup with any sort or regularity or frequency. The conditions have to be more or less ideal for me to wear it; if I’m too tired, if it’s raining, if it’s snowing, if I don’t have at least a half an hour allotted for it before leave the house, then another bare-faced day it is. That’s me 95% of the time. But recently, i.e.the last year or so, I’ve been loving the idea expressing myself creatively through makeup. It’s like another outfit dimension. Plus my mom always says my eyes pop when I wear eyeliner, so bonus!

I should make use of the random bits and bobs that I already have but recently, I’ve fallen in love with the idea of getting a palette. After plenty of research/Sephora browsing, I’ve settled on the absolute gem that is the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette by Tarte. This costs $54 dollars (from Sephora) is is mind boggling to me because the thought of pending that much on makeup is honestly something I just don’t think I can wrap my head around, especially since I barely wear it. That palette cost the same as the Star Trek Live Orchestra tickets I bought. So it might be awhile before I “invest” in one; gotta save up my loonies and toonies. For now I’ll just admire from a distance and wonder why drugstore makeup doesn’t come in bigger palettes.
