i don't wear a lot of makeup.
The last time I purchased foundation was on Halloween when I needed really white skin. The time before that was for a high school play. A few weeks ago I decided I needed something more than simply concealer. So I dropped $40 on foundation, new powder, eyeshadow, and a few new brushes. I felt a little better about spending money on makeup after I compared the price of Bobbi Brown's foundation ($40). But still, for me, it has always been kinda hard to spend very much on makeup. I know there is probably a big difference between makeup from Target and brands like Bobbi Brown, but I haven't figured them out yet. I spend too much money on things that never work like I think they're going to work. I've spent tons of money on acne cleansers and different types of shampoo that aren't supposed to strip away all the natural oils. But they never work quite right. And sometimes I think, why do I even try? I can live with my stupid silly acne and my too greasy hair (or too shampooed hair) and I bet no one but myself ever notices any difference. If I buy cheap makeup and it makes me happy, then that's good enough for me! If you feel better with the more expensive brands, then by all means go for it! And hey, who says you have to wear makeup anyway? In my opinion, the majority of women these days cake on way too much makeup, when they are perfectly gorgeous without anything at all. It's all in how you view yourself, ya know?
