As our family is moving forward as a unit and separate entities, we are seeing that each has noted uniqueness. My youngest daughter, Savannah, is a makeup artist. My oldest daughter, Brittany, has always been into makeup.
The funny thing to me is, since Brittany was very young, I have moved away from the use of makeup and today I realized just how much my daughters believe I don’t know about make up. I also recognize that it is my fault.
While I was growing up, I spent many hours in front of a mirror, putting on make up – every. single. day…..
We attended alot of church and I NEVER went to church without makeup on or my hair just “so-so”. I didn’t wear alot of makeup back then, but I wore – what I will call – the basics. However, I was definitely not Tammy Faye Bakker. She was known for the mass amounts of make up she wore. I wouldn’t have been permitted to wear make up in that manner, even if I had the desire.
I do know how to wear make up, but most of the time I choose not to. It is simply a matter of preference. However, upon returning from Ulta, I am made very aware of just how much my daughters think I don’t know about make up, when one of them says to me, “it makes me sad that you bought all of this (referring to the $140 worth of products), and don’t have a clue how to use it.”
It made me chuckle a little.
More on this later, but at the prompting of my best friend, We had a make up party!
