God. Sometimes I wish I had been more of a girly girl all my life. You know the kind I mean? Perfect clothes, styled hair, shades, high heels and flawless make up that almost isn't there. Me? I wear whatever I like even if it isn't perfect, my hair has a zillion bad days, I've never worn shades, I hate heels and I've NEVER worn make up. Sure, I'm a kajal (kohl) addict and I own a gazillion lip balms but that's it. And suddenly, life springs a wedding on me.
I know I'll be expected to have some make up on. And I'm going to have to throw myself at the mercy of some parlour lady and hope for the best. But the problem is - the major functions are in Madras. So it won't even be MY parlour! To make things worse, my boyfriend insists that make up will make me look either orange or deathly white and "plastic". Great. Just great. Way to take the pressure of me baby.
I asked a few friends and went out and bought something called Maybelline Matte Mousse. It looked good in the shop. Really, it did. And it felt all soft and like it would be like heaven to put on. Nope. I tried some on for a party yesterday and ended up with people asking me why I was looking so pale. And this with my engagement less than two weeks away. Now I'm scared out of my wits. What if I look like a clown?! I know what I want - a tinted moisturiser type of thing. Something that's barely there but makes my skin a bit more 'wow'. But I don't know where on earth I'm going to find something like that. Help?
