I know that this is such a random post, but I just couldn’t stop myself from posting this. I finished my rosebud salve! You’re probably thinking “So?” Well, it has never happened in my life that I finished a lip product, hahahaha. I usually lose them or give them to my sisters or.. I don’t know, they just seem to disappear every time. This lip product was an exception, because I’ve never used one as amazing as this one. (For more info, read my older post about this HERE). It took me about one and a half year to actually finish it. I think the money for this was very well-spent(:
I don’t wear much make-up, unless there’s a special event or party. I used to wear layers of mascara about 3 years ago, because I wanted my eyelashes to be huge, until I noticed it didn’t look very pretty at all. I stopped using mascara when I got my eyelash extensions (more info about my eyelash extensions HERE). They look way more natural than using mascara, because they’re very long but also thin. I don’t like wearing foundation because it makes me feel as if I’m wearing a mask. I prefer using concealer to hide red spots and such things. Other than that I only use lipbalm and that’s it. Not much, right?
To keep my skin clean, I use Clarins products. A worker in a beauty shop once recommended it to me and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s a product I feel safe with using it. I know this sounds weird “safe using a beauty product?”. Well, there’s a story behind it. When I just hit puberty I had lots of acne. It was even that bad that my parents thought it was an allergic reaction, so I went to a doctor. He told me to use some products of ehmm.. dammit, I fotgot the name! It was a pretty well-known brand though. But when I used it, it made my face turn red and it hurt really badly. It felt as if my face was in fire or something.. I immediately stopped using it of course, but since then, every product hurt, except products made for babies. Fortunately, after a couple months, I was able to use normal products again. One of the first ones I used, were Clarins-ones.
My routine: Clean my face, then put on some crème and then brush my eyelashes. Ending it by putting on some concealer, except when I forget to, which happens regularly.
