My mom and I have a lot the same tastes and we are pretty similar. I am told that we act basically the same, but one thing that is totally different about the two of us is our thoughts on skincare and makeup. Personally, I think taking care of your skin is a big deal and I take a lot of pride in what I do to take care of it.
I wash my face like everyone does, but then I have to put on toner, serums, eye creams and moisturizers. Even though I am only 14 and probably don’t need to do all of these steps it makes me feel accomplished. With just makeup I feel like it is not nearly as important as your skincare but still I have a lot of makeup; more than anyone should need and I think I know pretty much everything there is to know about makeup. I know where to conceal, highlight and contour. And the same goes for skincare, I know what you need to use if you’re struggling with wrinkles or blemishes.
The thing is that I don’t even know how I know so much about makeup and skincare because my mom is pretty clueless about this subject to be quite honest with you. Her makeup collection, well it’s not really even a collection but it consists of mascara, foundation, blush, lip balm and a few brushes. I wish I could be that minimal. My mom is definitely not a beauty guru! She puts her foundation on with her hands, which kind of makes me cringe but I’m sure I would be the same way if I had 4 kids to take care of! But at the end of the day she looks the same no matter how she puts on her makeup and yes that is a compliment to her! Maybe I should give her techniques a try.
There is one thing I have to say though and that is if she didn’t have me to help her with makeup and all of that stuff who knows the kind of things she would be using. What I am trying to say here is that she is pretty lucky to have me!
