I saw an article somewhere about a beauty blogger who is wearing a different lipstick every day for a year and photo-documenting it. So for fun I thought I would take a photo of my makeup every day for a month, so I can look back and see what looks I like the most, how often I stick to one “face” or mix things up. I have been putting each day’s makeup on Instagram, but here is a round-up of my 30 makeup looks.
In retrospect it is highly self-indulgent, even narcissistic to take 30 photos of yourself for no really valid reason, but I had fun doing it and I’ve learned a bit about myself. I think makeup makes a big difference to your self confidence and your mood. I’ve been amazed at the difference eyeshadow and eyeliner can make, and I’ve discovered that I’d rather highlight my eyes than my lips. It’s nice to have a picture record so that you can recreate looks you really like. Why not start a makeup diary?
