I once read somewhere that according to Bobbi Brown, the legendary makeup artist, we shouldn’t use mascara on our lower lashes because it makes our face look something (I don’t exactly remember what), anyway, so I have been abiding by the BB rules for quite some time and avoiding the dramatic look of 60′s. Then I started being lazier than ever about make up and instead of a cateye everytime I go out, I started piling up on mascara and blusher. Sure I look a tad more dramatic than I intend to, like I cried a couple of minutes ago BUT it’s easy to apply, looks like I don’t even care about my makeup and I look like a doll. Or at least I think I do, according to the silver shiny thing on the wall that has a %90 success rate of letting me down and putting me to shame. Whatever!

How am I going to do a braid tiara or a triple twist braid when I can’t even make a ponytail? It’s too late for me but long haired people, save yourselves!

Pick a Side

Pick a Side

We choose sides for everything we own, believe or like (sleeping, posing for cameras, writing – eventually resulting in a well applied nail polish only on one hand – a probable one foot half size bigger than the other situation, political views and more) so why not do the same with our hair? For me, it comes and goes every few months, when I can’t keep on styling my hair mid-parted I run to the arms of side swept hair. The side depends on which eyebrow or cheek I want to conceal however I believe it looks better from left to right, can’t be proven why.
