I know a lot of my friends wore makeup since they were in middle school. I think there’s always those girls who enjoy prettifying themselves on a daily basis. Eyeshadow, eyelashes, blush, eyeliner… the whole shazam.
Though I have always been interested in style and fashion, I’ve never been much of a ‘put things on your face’ kind of girl. But lately, I found myself drawn towards makeup. Maybe it was after seeing that all my friends were wearing it or maybe it was after deciding that I should try to embrace my femininity (haha…). I’m definitely NOT an ‘extreme makeup-er’. 6/7 days of the week, I tend to just use powder, put a bit of lip balm on and walk out the door. However, there are those days you want to put in more effort and look better and that’s when the blush and eyeliner comes into use.
Today, I decided to put my creative powers into use and draw a nifty little illustration showcasing my most loved products. Rather than trying to create a super neat and detailed drawing (as I usually do), I tried to create quick sketches. They aren’t that great but… hey, at least I tried? :)

Do you, my friends, wear makeup religiously? Or just on special occasions? Let me know :) <Also, if you have tips for taking good product photos, tell me!>
I leave you with a song me and my friend were listening to while doing wall mural painting! It reminds me of the times we listened to this song when we went snowboarding. Thanks to Cherry Tomato (once again – she’s my music buddy) for introducing this song to us!
(Can I) call you my own, and can I call you my lover
Call you my one and only girl
(Can I) call you my everything, call you my baby
You’re the only one who runs my world
