Well my loves, you know that I also have a life outside of the gym, and that I am just like every other girl, I love to put on make-up. And I love to spend hours trying out different variations , but without the right equipment it doesn't work.
Normally I don't spend that much money on make-up stuff because I am mostly at the gym or at home recovering from my gym-sessions and preparing meals. But when I leave the house, for work or for a shopping-trip, I prefer to get dressed up a bit and put on some make-up, still I am not a fashion-grinch .
And now that I entered the working-world, I thought it would be the perfect occasion to throw away my old low-budget-make-up-brushes and get better ones ,by DaVinci. I read a lot of positive reviews, so even though they are quite expensive, I think it's a good investment. And I definitely need better make-up brushes to put on my stage-make-up ( great jenny... go on justifying yourself..)
Of course I bought the whole set,which contains a big brush for powder-makeup, a smaller brush to apply rouge, another small brush for liquid foundations. For the eyes there are 4 different tools, a brush for the eyeshadow, one for the eyeliner or thinner lines, a blender and also a brush for your lashes and eyebrows. And not to forget a very tiny brush to put your lipstick and draw thin lines to make your lips' form stand out even more.
I was amazed by the brushes at the first try, they feel so soft and smooth. It's so much easier to apply your makeup with good brushes and my 'everyday-smokey-eyes' turned out to be absolutely fantastic (in my opinion, as I am not a professional).
I can't wait for the competition-season to begin. I kind of love those preparation-rituals before the big moment, when you get up early (even if I hate getting up early) , wash your hair, style your hair, and then start with your make-up.Maybe you remember that I hired a professional makeup artist for my first competition (post here)? Well, I draw some inspiration from that makeup for the two following competitions. And as I will spend my morning at the hairdresser's already to get my hair perfectly done (for the J-M.B Open here in Luxembourg), I am not sure if I should put on the make-up myself again or not...
What do you think?
If you have any suggestions concerning make-up artist that come to my home, please let me know.
