Give up practicing your makeup on your face, and start practicing on your … thigh. In a world where makeup trend become increasingly stranger and stranger, nothing surprises me anymore.
People have started to apply an entire face on makeup, fake eyelashes and all, onto their thighs. Gone are the days where, if you wanted to experiment with a new look, you applied it onto your own face, or better yet that of a friend. The thought of it actually seems sort of sad to me; I can picture some poor girl, who’s only wish is to get 200 likes on an Instagram photo, sitting alone in her room, carefully drawing winged eyeliner onto her own thigh.
What’s the point of this? I know that a makeup look like this would take me a minimum of an hour to do and that’s only if I get my eyebrows right on the first try. So once you’re finished putting the masterpiece onto your leg, do you just take a picture, and then wipe it off? That seems like a waste of time and product. Or, do you walk around with it on all day, not giving AF what people think of you? As fun as it would be to show people that you have the skills (and time) to create two, on point makeup looks, I can guarantee that you would get some strange stares.
Now, some are going to argue that it’s “art,” and I’m not going to disagree. In fact, every single time that I spend my entire paycheck at Sephora, I justify my unnecessary purchases with the excuse that “makeup is my artistic outlet.” However, there’s a limit. If you like drawing, grab a pen and paper and get to it. If you like applying makeup, cake that shit onto your face. But either way, leave your thighs out of it.
While I usually tend to avoid the makeup haters, and continue to rock my blue lipstick, sparkly eyelids, or whatever TF I want to rock that day, I have to admit that glueing lashes onto your thigh might actually be taking things a bit too far..
