RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread ! 

 

when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Yeah, except i dont.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

This is the fifth week on my new job. I've been so much happier and far less stressed. Yesterday it occurred to me that I haven't taken the job home with me either. Sleeping better, eating better...makes me feel beautiful!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Glad to hear!  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Yay! That's awesome. Very happy for you 🙂

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Super happy for you!:) 
It's great when you find a job you like!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

somehow reading that makes me feel really happy for you! i can totally relate - work satisfaction (or the lack thereof) can really affect our lives. Glad to hear that you are feeling happy and peaceful. take care!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thank you so much for the sweet words! I really appreciate it!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

So who else got some random PM on BT to fill out a questionnaire?

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

From an intern at tioga research labs?  They asked for my mailing address so they could get my opinion on numbered skincare samples.  

No can do.  Not that I'm not curious, but if I don't know what's in them then I'm not putting them on my skin.  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Me four. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Me three.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Me too.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I've gotten them before, usually from other users who are doing a research project for school or something. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I have been complimented on my makeup two times in the last month.  This has never happened in my life!  I typically just wear mascara, cc cream and a sheer lip color, but I was also wearing something on my cheeks the two times I was complimented.  I did put in a little extra effort, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

 

I know I should be flattered, but I'm paranoid that people are noticing my makeup because I did it wrong or put on too much blush, not because it actually looks good!  I think I need to get over myself.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

This happened to me today! I used my new Too Faced palette for the first time today, and I messed up because I'm still learning about where to place eyeshadow for my hooded eyes, and my mom's coworker randomly blurted out that she liked my make up look today.

 

I spent at least an hour wondering if she was being sarcastic. I blame that scene in Mean Girls.

 

"I love your skirt! Where did you get it?" then when she leaves, "That is the ugliest effing skirt I've ever seen."

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Haha! I am ALWAYS suspicious of compliments from strangers for that very reason!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

LOL!!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I'm sure you looked very pretty, but I kind of understand the paranoia too! I'm quite timid with makeup as well, but   sometimes what helps me is thinking that I don't want to be controlled by what other people think of my looks. Also, if I don't wear all the colors I love right now, I'll probably end up regretting it 20 yrs down the line and that won't be fun. Sometimes, thinking that helps 🙂 🙂

Everyone is always their own harshest critic. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

My sushi in a bottle promo came in!!!! 😄 Well, more like it came in yesterday, but I haven't figured out how to upload photos from the phone to BT.

LOL - I think the Cold Plasma smells more like chicken broth than fish, but either way, the scent is not pleasant. 

 

However, I've used it for the last 4 days, and I think the results are awesome for me so far (no breakouts so far, fingers crossed).
