WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?!!!! I said I hate makeup, but I have to direct more of my disdain to foundation. I am 35 years old and I am still trying to find a foundation that is my holy grail. I am very, very, very fair, yellow undertones, have a lot of redness and my skin is dry and sensitive. I moisturize like it's my second job, use primer, concealer, foundation, powder, etc. etc. I drink TONS of water, I always take my makeup off (and moisturize!) and have done so much research on foundation that I can write a dissertation.
I am tired. I feel defeated.
I've been battling foundation woes since I was 16 and would use my part-time job paycheck to buy $50 foundation. I would have to go to Macy's department store and buy the absolutely lightest shade of foundation. The gal's that worked the makeup counters were baffled by my skin, "Omg you're so pale!" Ugh. I spent so much time being upset about being embarrassed about my skin AND spending so much money trying to cover it up.
Foundation does not make me feel pretty. It makes me feel ugly, self conscious and frustrated. I don't want to spend loads of money on something that makes my skin crawl. I don't want to buy a product that I feel 'does the job' only to have it discounted. I'm sick of watching and reading reviews of beauty guru's who only confuse me more, I just want one product to use everyday!!! I have mixed foundations, used all the recommended makeup tools, tried different application techniques. I've been there, I've done that....over it.
I hate you foundation, you are the bane of my morning routine. As for the rest of the makeup, I'm okay with you....as long as you behave.
Your pale annoyed friend.
