Anyone else in the house, who always forgets to click pictures when they doll up a little bit ? ( this pic was taken last month for Diwali 😅) 99% of the time I simply forget to get a good picture of me when I dress up well. I’m a bare minimum make up person ( usual routine only includes moisturiser, sunscreen, kajal / eye pencil & a lip balm ) I tend to rub my eyes a lot and mostly end up looking like a panda by mid-day 😅 and by the time I leave work I look like this. I always think maybe I should retouch the lip balm & kajal when it wears off but then again I feel I don’t have to look all that great to stare at a computer screen, if you know what I mean 😎 I understand if I was at the front desk or attending client meetings & all I would add on a little more glamour. But I just feel happy like this ! Because this is me & I’m happy being me.
Confession though : I really enjoy watching make up tutorials & own a fair range of high end make up products & can actually do pretty decent make up on my own if required but I’m just like “meh 🤷🏻♀️” another day maybe ( everyday ).There have been tonnes of times I’ve put on make up and then immediately taken it off cos I’ve felt like I’m not myself ( I donno if that even makes sense 🙈) It’s the same when I edit my pics & then check the unedited pic and feel that’s way more better looking to me. Probably I like the lack of perfection or my flaws a little too much or maybe I’ve embraced it whole heartedly.
My pictures are usually never perfect & in most cases I’ve no pictures to show. The more I’m immersed the lesser the pics. It happens when I travel too. I draw in every little detail & seal the picture in my heart but I mostly forget to reach for the camera. I want to & would love to but it always skips my mind. Is this normal ? I always feel I should have been born in a different era...certainly not this digital one 😂
