contouring and highlighting using foundation work for me.
I'm actually starting to wonder if I've lost the confidence I used to have in my makeup skills. I'm not sure whether things are really getting in my way as much as they seem, or whether I'm letting opportunities go by when I could have ignored the apparent needs of others and made the time to practice my makeup.
I now have less than a fortnight to decide whether I am going to IMATS, and if so, whether I'm going for one day or both. After last year, I really wanted to go both days, but with how things have been over the last year or so, I don't even know if I'll get there at all now. The ticket prices go up on 22nd August, so unless I want to pay extra for my indecision, I need to make a decision very soon! In a lot of ways I'd like to do the 2 days, travel down Friday night, stay in the city and come home Sunday evening but I don't know if I'm up to sorting out accommodation and doing my hair and makeup away from home, let alone the time that I'd lose being away from home and work!
Also, I've recently been invited to join in a makeup blogging challenge,
which involves posting makeup posts on pre-determined themes. There's a
theme every week, and the idea is to post on the Monday. It's not
compulsory to post every week, but I suspect that many of the
participants will do so. I'm not sure yet, but I might manage to do this
week's challenge in the next day or two (okay, it's a long way past
Monday but I figure in the first week of the challenge, if I do it at
all it's better late than never. :-)
