It's my first year of being a 'real adult' (ie I am no longer a student) and I find myself longing for the simpler days, when all I had to worry about was when the next essay was due. I LOVED being a student, and have been for such a long time that forging an adult identify is proving to be a bit of a struggle. I wannnnt to be a perpetual student!
In the nostalgic mood, I decided to seek out my childhood makeup (to be honest, I didn't have to look far! I still keep it on my desk and would consider using it even though some of it is about 9 years old. Bleugh you may say, but it looks all right to me!)
One of my first eyeshadows, a cream consistency and a pinky glittery colour, official name 'cool cat'. I really liked it as it differed from the usual eyeshadows in Boots, and I loved a bit of glitter on my eyes.I certainly felt like a 'cool cat' when I wore it.
The products that I haven't pictured include a violet eyeshadow duo called 'slow motion' and a Sephora mini tub of glitter. I used to put the glitter over my eyes (and sometimes cheeks) and I would still do that! Sadly the Sephora at my local Brent Cross is no longer there :(
So, I have found that my makeup tastes have not really changed over the years. I was either very grown up, or am still a child at heart.
