A few days ago, I went to a party. Yup, a party and its a done thing here to do your hair and makeup the fancy way to attend those lavish parties. My ‘stylist’ told me to be ready early coz she’ll do my hair first, then my makeup. The hair took just a couple of minutes and it was all done. Soft curls and all. Hmm, I didn’t realize I look reasonably well with curls.
Now its time for the makeup. The stylist complimented me on my not too blemished facial skin. Yes, I’m such a swell head. Ha! I need those massive headphones to keep those teeny weeny compliments from getting to my head. But yeah, I’m mighty proud of myself coz it takes a lot for me to take care of my skin. Mainly coz I’m too lazy to put on makeup daily, that I think the next best thing would be to have a clear, unblemished skin.
Anyway, back to the makeup session. She told me though that I have lots of dark eye circles. Yes, I tend to have seriously dark ones specially when I don’t get lots of sleep. I was frantic though about looking like a raccoon but she told me not to worry she can do something. With a concealer! Woot! And it was like magic. Now, I’m dead set on getting myself a good concealer.
