i think the more important question is who cares and why does it matter. i’m fascinated by the idea of makeup as a personal/private discussion. like, people aren’t ”allowed” to wear over the top makeup cuz they get shamed. dudes like ‘natural’ makeup but like, they just don’t know, so they think they like ‘natural’ girls. don’t wear x cuz you look cheap. etc. etc. you have to go to the powder room to touch up your look. (we named powder doom powder doom because i think the concept of going to the ‘powder room’ to ”fix your face” is weird and i like the idea of a powder explosion, like, makeup as this huge explosion of things and appearances…..play on words. now you know. anyway.) why though? why is makeup and its application a secret? i love seeing melted down bustedness, i like seeing powdered perfection, i like everything in between. it’s the best. i want to know everything about everything you do to your face. tell me everything. show me everything. i like knowing how much work it takes to get where you want to be / look / feel. it brings us closer together. hiding away makes makeup seem wrong to me. show me your work. let’s bond.
