20. Falling Prey To Beauty Trends
A beautiful appearance will last a few decades, but a beautiful personality will last a lifetime. We naturally want to fit in, and because of this we tend to fall victim to beauty trends that take over our life! You can only be the best version of yourself, so don't get too caught up in your physical appearance.
As a joke, I tried to make a contouring pictorial that looked ridiculous, but it actually turned out to look just all of the other ones floating around Pinterest. Ha! 🙂
But before making fun of this trend, I figured I'd better give it a try. I spent $35 on the makeup and brush for this contouring experiment (it was actually kind of fun, I laughed at myself the entire time) and look how amazing the results are!
Kidding! That's obviously not me unless contouring can also change your eye color. 🙂 Now, to be honest, I thought I looked a lot better in the after photos, but in real life I looked ridiculous! My husband said it looked like he could scrape several layers off of my face. I understand the idea of using a contouring guide to sweep on a little bronzer, but unless you find yourself at a photo shoot, it's a bit excessive to apply this much makeup. Although I'll probably never bother to contour again, I did have a lot of fun!
