these are some weird times we’re going through. I was able to, a couple of days after the first cases of Covid-19 have reached my country, decide to stay in voluntary isolation, following the official guidelines. so… now I have quite a bit of free time… and I decided to pick up my brushes shop your stash style — because what other style is there?—, do a “Get Ready With Me To Go Nowhere” (GRWMTGN — do you think that’ll catch on?) and chat about this strange place in time we are all in, things to do to pass the time, to help out the community, worries and sadnesses, and of course, filling the gaps with a lot of self-deprecating jokes.
If you’re in a similar situation, let’s bond over this weird reality-suspending limbo… and cross over some meaningful ways to pass the time. Anything goes except hoarding food, masks or toilet paper! If you’re not, tag along by pretending you’re watching one of those dystopian series…
Did you miss those intense and uncalled for close ups of my poor brittle face? It’s always fun to test out new foundations on camera. Get to know if it’s a go for me in this long (because thorough!) video ;)
I haven’t named most of these products as my favourites by accident… I actually love and use most of them on a daily basis, or at least keep them on rotation. Here is one example of how I get them to work for me on an everyday basis.
Suddenly, it’s been almost a year since my last video. On my Instagram, I’ve posted about 5 pictures. So it’s been basically… radio silence. Do I owe you an explanation? I’m sure everyone did just fine during my absence, yet I feel I created a bond with this weird virtual entity that is you guys.
Won’t lie: 2019 was the roughest year to date and every turn seemed to bring more twists to bring me down. Picture a 1990’s video game with boomerangs flying all over and hitting me in the head…
I must say makeup and skincare have not been on the top of my priorities, but, surprisingly enough, even during my worse moments, those little rituals provided me some solace, some comfort, and the seeming chore of doing my skincare routine in the evening was something that made me feel slightly more… normal. Self-care and all that, I guess. Also, YouTube has provided me with many hours of entertainment, or, at least, something to keep my mind out of reality.
So… Yeah, now that things seem to be settling down I noticed I missed filming, playing with makeup, and I’m pondering coming back.
There’s a couple of pros and cons, of course. The biggest thing I’m dwelling on is: is it worth it? Would you like to hang out with me again on some Sunday mornings?
I’ll be here waiting to know what the 3 of you think ;)
