Totally by chance I came across a girl on Instagram with beautiful and simple make-up tutorials. I got hooked in no time and I wanted to buy all the products she was using.
Watching her insta lives every time fuelled my desire to look flawlessly beautiful. I started buying make-up products – all sorts. It didn’t matter if it would suit me or my face, I bought it. I was scouring YouTube for more make-up tutorials. The more tutorials I watched the more make-up products I bought. And I still couldn’t achieve the flawless look.
Then I read an article about impulse buying and I recognised that I carried all the symptoms mentioned. It kinda woke me up. The fact rammed in harder when the sales consultant at Superdug told me the capuccino shade is totally my shade and I listened to her and bought it! I have Indian oily skin and my skin shade, in general, is classic tan.
It eventually dawned on me that no matter what product I buy, the most important thing for me to do is to take of my skin. A properly laid-out skin-care routine is what I need. And no, this time I’m not rushing to the store to buy skincare products. I’m going to take my time – do more research on exfoliating and its bitches. The second thing I promise I’ll do is to go to a bigger Boots store and get my skin shade properly matched.
I feel much better now that I’m applying a face moisturiser only. I’m not going to succumb to societal pressures…I’m not…
