Time for Change

Hello my friends. You will never believe what I just had to do! I just had to purchase more picture memory for my blog! That tells me that I have been doing a really good job at writing this year :)

This post may be boring to some of you because it has a lot of makeup pictures. I mean a lot. 
But there is a reason for this.

You see, when I was in school and in my 20s I wore makeup every day.
I took a lot of pride in my appearance. You know those "southern Belles" that you see who always have to have their hair and makeup and outfit just right....well I was just like that.
I took great pride in my appearance.

Well that all changed when I was going through the horrible anxiety and panic attacks!
I never did my hair or makeup. I would shower, brush my hair once and that was it.

Well, since I have been getting out more, I started to fix myself up more and discovered that I desperately needed more makeup.

So, wanting to keep with the trends, I turned to trusty youtube to see what kinds of makeup were good and what trends in makeup were happening.

Well I was shocked! Most of the makeup the people used on youtube was EXPENSIVE!

I am a walmart/drugstore girl so that didn't work for me.

So I found a couple of people I like who used a mixture of high end and drugstore brands.

Now I have been collecting makeup for a little over a month now so I wanted to show you all what I have.
All have either been given to me or came from a drug store.
Most of my makeup is by wet n Wild. Their brand is so cheap but the product is very good.

Well there you have it. I know I already have a lot of makeup and I plan on getting more. I love playing around with color but being classy about it.

Now I need to convince the hubby to let me spend some money on a makeup case. My little bag runs over.

Well I know this one is a bit boring but it is as much as a record keeper as a show off.
Thanks for reading.
Be Blessed.
