When you're used to doing everything on the net, from checking the temperature to arrivals and possible adventures, life becomes incredibly dull when the internet's elsewhere. At first that is, then you forget everything about anything that needs to be done, checked or answered and just read a book instead.
That or try something new. Like a powder. Would you believe me if I told you I am a powder-virgin? It's true. An old Max Factor powder and me went out a couple of times back in -96 or so but there wasn't any spark. No connection, nothing. We went our separate ways, I stayed with sheer foundations and it went straight into the bin.
Sure, the powder made my face stay matte through whatever ordeal I put it through, but it also made me look like the bearded lady with a fuzzy nose. It amplified every imperfection and made the tiniest pore look like a crater.
So, when I got powder in the giveaway-bag from WetnWild, I didn't really know what to do with it and I still don't. It's the cutest packaging I have seen as far as budget-powder goes, but I can't just have it around as decoration, can I?
It's a compact powder in Natural from their Natural wear-line that's supposedly eco-friendly wih all natural ingredients. It even comes with instructions which I, powder-newbie, first followed and then ignored. Patting powder under the eyes doesn't seem like a brilliant idea as it just makes my so-called fine lines appear to ge geat canyons. Instead I ended up using this powder as I usually do (using sheer or bright eyeshadow), as a way to fix my eyeliner and eyemakeup. A powdery primer like we did in the 80's.
But that's not how you're supposed to make use of your powder, is it?
How do you make yours work for you?
