It was year 2013 when I finally gave in and tried my hands at doing makeup. I was so amazed by the power of makeup and I had really loved watching Michelle Phan’s videos. I had literally no idea which one to put on first. I constantly Googled which one had to be done first: eyebrows or eyeshadows? Eye makeup or face makeup? I even searched for “Which brush is for which?”
Back then, I would only buy a lipstick and pressed powder. I wouldn’t buy another lipstick unless I finished one. Kilay was not “life” haha!
In this photo, I used my first ever eyeshadow palette, a quad actually, from Avon. It was their purple quad because I loved purple and I wanted to do Mish’s Purple Hazy Look. I did not have any liquid foundation nor any BB cream. I only used pressed powder.
It’s just fascinating to see so much has changed through these years. I’m not perfect, I am NOT a MUA. I’m just someone who has learned how to properly do it and is still in the process of learning it.
So sa lahat ng nagsasabi ng “gusto kong matuto pero hindi talaga ako marunong”, walang matututo kung hindi nagsusubok na matuto. If gusto, push lang. Keep practicing! Pasasaan ba’t achieve mo na rin!
