My Achilles' heel

It's not a secret that I am totally addicted to shopping for clothes, shoes and other what-nots. I have an extensive collection of accessories, books, DVDs and other thingamajigs. I can quote movie lines without batting an eyelash.

But of course no one is perfect. I have an Achilles' heel, too. And that, my friends, is makeup. I swear I am so clueless when it comes to applying makeup! I have the quintessential pressed powder and eyelash curler and I have a fairly extensive collection of lipbalms and lipgloss. I swipe the occasional cheek stain every now and then when I am looking super pale. But for all of the others I am just not a fan. I wear glasses so it is (a little) pointless to apply eyeshadow and mascara. I am a total klutz at applying foundation, concealer and bronzer.

I pore endlessly at my copies of Cosmopolitan and Allure and then try putting on makeup but I just cannot seem to get it right. I am hopeless. Besides, I am just too lazy to do the whole paint-your-face thing. And of course, ten minutes outside and I am sure the effort would be worthless because of the humidity in this country. I am also not big on that whole pamper-me thing. I have never had a facial and I do my own manicure and pedicure. I am very ticklish so massages are no-no for me. I reason, "Wala akong pakialam, basta marami akong sapatos." (I don't care, so long as I have many shoes.)

But I would still want to learn. How to apply makeup that is. Who knows when I am going to need it, right? I would also want to have a big traincase full of yummy colors of tubes and pallettes inside. I want to learn how to apply makeup.

Must. find. makeup. tutorials. online!
