Makeup Resolutions for 2017

I was browsing through my draft posts, and came across one I did in 2014 about makeup trends. Of all the things I noted there (which to be honest was just one item - thicker eyebrows), I could have never guessed how different makeup would be in 2017.

In the past few months I started to feel old & outdated with my brown eyeliner & red lipstick while girls around me have been wearing so much makeup I would probably say their skin type is "Banana Powder". This was rather unbecoming of my past as a beauty blogger and I needed to find a way to burn money, so I made a list. Of makeup resolutions.

My makeup resolution list for this year looked like:

1. Buy highlighter, and apply to high points of face daily for looking like I ate light bulbs for dinner. No such thing as too much highlighter. But not on the nose-tip, cause that's veering into Rudolf territory.

2. Buy contouring powder. Ignore fact that my cheekbones are already very high and looking gaunt comes easy to me. I just have to wait for Week 2 of my cycle when I don't have any PMS water retention.

3. Must get blender. (A beauty blender. Get your mind out of the kitchen, girl!) Ignore fact that it needs to be washed daily and I am one of the laziest people when it comes to cleaning brushes. Also I am the only one who is a little disappointed that it grows in size when wet? (Okay, it seemed like a decent sentence when I typed it, get your mind out of the gutter girl!)

4. Buy mauve/brown matt liquid lipstick (or as my friend calls it - shit colored lipstick). Also buy matching lip pencil to overdraw already big lips.

5. Bake yo face, with banana powder.

6. Buy three different items for the eyebrow - pencil, powder, gel and spend an inordinate amount of time first plucking the hair out and then drawing it back with makeup.

7. Buy Kim Kardashian colored foundation. Earlier I used to buy foundation matched to my skin shade. Apparently, that's no longer cool, and we all need to buy her yellow toned shade match, even if it looks ridic with my cool toned features.

8. Mascara is for kids. Real women wear fake lashes.

Of this, I have only been successful in taming my eye-brows. The rest continue to be mysteries to me though I have watched a ton of YT videos.

I will be talking about some of the other trends in posts in the coming week.
