Confession is good for the soul, go ahead and unburden yourself! I promise I won't judge.
My makeup currently languishes in terrible disarray in my bedroom. My storage situation is so horrifically terrible and inadequate that I often will buy something, put it down, and because it ends up being covered by a mound of new makeup, I forget about it. Whenever I have the urge to organise my makeup - which happens whenever I realise I haven't seen a given item in a half-decade - I end up discovering products that I forgot that I had, that I've never touched, and that I probably will never touch. Oops!
Yet, I keep buying eyeshadows and lip colours and blushes - I have over 500 lipsticks and lip glosses, close to 100 blushes, and my eyeshadows must number a thousand. Yes, I have issues.
Oh, and another confession: I rarely get pedicures even though I love them. I wait to get one until my feet are near scaly and toenails are all haggard. Ew!
There, don't you feel better now?
A tiny bit!
Aunty Brown has a few more questions though; it's true that I'm the nosy type.
When was the last time you visited the hairdresser?
Oh, this was back in May; I have 9 inches of my hair chopped off at the John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman - all for the sake of a blog post. I went from having hair down to my bum to hair that just hit my shoulders!
Which bit of beauty trickery couldn't you live without?
I can't live without facial contouring. My face is rounder than a breast implant, so if I want to look like I don't weigh a metric ton, I always have to contour my cheeks, jawline and forehead.

You've overslept and have 5 minutes to get out of the house. Are you going out with dirty hair or no makeup?
Since my hair is curly, I rarely wash it. So, dirty hair! Although, I often leave the house without makeup - I just do it when I get to work. I'm a travesty!
Which trend still makes you cringe?
Whoever decided that it was ok to wear falsies in public, during the day, needs to be whipped. I'm sorry, but falsies rarely look natural. Get eyelash extensions if need be, or wear a ton of mascara (within reason), but don't wear a full strip of false lashes to go to work or the grocer. It's barely excusable for makeup artists, even.
Hee hee! You crack me up. I don't think I've ever heard anyone compare their face to a breast implant. You have no idea how tempted I was to post a piccies of an implant with a face on it! Thank you so much for sharing.
