I haven’t written anything here for a while. When I do write something it’s meaningless posts. I’m not stopping to write but for a while I have decided to only use Instagram. I would be excited if you would join me there! My account is cecilia.helin.39. Take care!

Foundation everywhere

I use some kind of foundation on my face when I wear make up. I’ve tried different powder products but I always go back to foundation. Powder look “powdery” on my face. Foundation works good for me. I’ve used lots of foundation. I think Lancome’s products are the best. This is not a foundation review however. This is about the time I went shopping covered in foundation everywhere.

I bought a foundation on one of my shopping trips. I dropped the bag with the foundation on the floor. I didn’t think much about it. I didn’t look to check the beauty products in the bag. I continued shopping. I did lots of shopping. I don’t know about you. Because of my social anxiety I usually look at things and not myself when I’m out. It distracts me to think about the things in the stores I visit instead of thinking about how I feel.

Should have bought face powder.

I usually shop for groceries after I’ve done the “fun” part of shopping. I went to the grocery store. Got what I wanted and went out of the grocery store. Then………I look down and see myself covered in a pink fluid. My jacket and trousers had the fluid everywhere. Then I saw the bag with the foundation. The bottle with the foundation had broke when I dropped the bag on the floor. The bag was broken and the foundation leaked through it on my clothes. I had walked around for a long time in the shopping mall like this! No one had looked at me like something was wrong. When I say I was covered in foundation I mean I was covered everywhere! I had to throw the trousers away. I washed them many times but couldn’t get the foundation off. The jacket thankfully got clean!

Here sometime

I want to say a big Thank you to all my new and old followers for reading my blog. For the moment I’m into Instagram big time. I love to write here but because my depression is hard at the moment and I find Instagram easier because you can write shorter post. I write lots there. I’m not saying I think writing blog posts are hard but now I get tired whatever I do and that’s why I’m just here sometimes.

On my Instagram I write about the same things I do here.

A thing that I posted on Instagram.

Sugar free sugar. “Our sugar free cookies contain 2 cups of sugar.”

I’ll post this in every cathegory so it reaches all of you.

See you there or sometimes here.

Make up

I used to wear liquid make up before. Everything from BB creams to foundations. When BB creams were new I tried lots of different brands. Foundations has been around longer and I`ve tried many different ones there too. Foundations are not my favourites when it comes to make up. I feel like it gives too much coverage.

My favourite thing to wear now is powder. I have used it before but it was long ago. I had this idea that powder would “gather” in wrinkles and enhance them. I was wrong. Powder hides wrinkles and liquid make up enhance them. I know it`s not the same for everyone but this is how it is for me. Always when I used BB creams I was thinking “I have to do something about those wrinkles”. With powder my skin is the way it normally is.

The application of powder is much easier than BB cream. BB creams gets all over the place and it`s not easy to get it on evenly. I think powder looks more natural. The natural look depends on what colour you use though! Liquid make up always stain clothes. Especially jackets get these brown stains on the collar. Powder is much better when it comes to this.

The application of powder is dependant on the applicator you use. I used to put powder on with the sponge that almost always is included. I know you know everything about this but if you`ve never tried powder before, don`t apply it with sponges! It doesn`t give you a natural look and they are not “clean”.

I don`t know about you but I rather use the brush. Both these are from elf. I love this brand! Everything but the sponge that is. The sponge was included with the powder and I used it a couple of times. I washed it after every use but this is how it ended up. The sponge pictured is washed and it looks more than dirty! I bought the kabuki brush and it does make powder application easy. It`s worth spending money on these things I`ve found.
