2017: Year of Moar Selfies

That’s right: this year, I’m going to try and work up the nerve to post more selfies. While wearing a face full of what’s in my stash.

I’m not a selfie person. To me, people who constantly take selfies are perceived as narcissists – it doesn’t bother me if you’re by yourself and snapping away, but if I’m in your company and we gotta haul ass somewhere and you’re snapping pictures nth amount of times trying to get that perfecti angle, don’t be surprised if by the time you finish, I’m miles ahead of you. I just don’t have the patience to just stand idly while someone snaps away trying to get that perfect selfie or snaps one selfie after another with different poses.

In the end, it’s still you.

Rant aside, I also have reservations about putting my face out in public while wearing a full gear of makeup. Aside from having my image stolen for catfishing purposes (watch MTV’s “Catfish: The Series” and you’ll see what I mean), it’s also something I never really understood or could ever get into. But it appears to be a mandate when you want to call yourself a beauty blogger/vlogger soooo…

Moar selfies it is, I guess. Because the makeup culture demands sacrifice from its netizens.

In-between my computer activity and coloring a page from one of my coloring books, I find myself browsing through Ulta’s, Sephora’s, and e.l.f’s online stores and Temptalia going “fight me” for new products that I would want. And I found none.

That was hammered in further when I found myself trying to roll-call all the makeup brushes that I own (and I could swear I have a helluva lot more than what I see) and I had to dig through my haphazard drawer of e.l.f. Baked Blushes Highlighters in Pinktastic, Ardell Lashes bought from IMATS, my Bite Beauty Lipsticks in their Sephora bag, and Kiko Stylo Lipsticks to name a few. I found 3 (I could have sworn I went nuts at the e.l.f. store in Roosevelt Field but maybe I’m just tripping again) and brought them out.

All that just to cough up three e.l.f. brushes.
