About this blog

One Walgreens Cosmetics employee's attempts to give some makeup advice to those who might want it, and who don't want to take it from Jill Rodrigues. I was inspired by a comment that I nearly answered before I realized it was over 4 months old.

Y'all ready? L'go.

Oops

I'm sorry that I've not come back with this blog and tips and tricks!

I took a vacation - the first vacation I'd taken in 8 years! - to Seattle in March, where I got to finally meet my best friend in person, and we got to go see Hamilton on tour! Then I fell into a Stardew Valley on the Switch rabbit hole, and I was a bridesmaid in a wedding, and then... well. Work. Lots of work, lots of turn around. And Cubs games on TV to watch, and my boys in pinstripes kind of take precendence since I get to watch so few games because of work and refusing to shell out $90 a year for MLB.tv.

I might change my focus of this blog (because I have a fafillionty Stardew screencaps!), but I'll try to still put some makeup stuff in here too.

Greetings and salutations!

Hey y'all! 

I was perusing the forum on one of my days off a few weeksmonths ago, and saw a comment where someone had asked about eyeshadow application. I started firing off an answer... before I looked up and realized the post was at least four months old - if only I'd gotten over my weird forum social anxiety sooner! I scratched the post, but it's kind of hung with me since. What do!? Then I saw there were blogs. Hayyyy.

Anyway, hi. You can call me AJ. As you may have seen from the blog description, I am a Walgreens employee who, until the restructuring of the Cosmetics department, worked primarily the Cosmetics department. Up until I started working that department, I didn't give a rip about makeup. Tomboy to the fullest, I am. I like NASCAR and baseball, I never gave a shit. But, when I started working Cos, I realized that I was intrigued, and that I could give better advice to my customers if I wore makeup myself. So, I bought some inexpensive makeup, dove into YouTube tutorials, and now I wear makeup daily. I feel pretty when my face looks nice.

Since makeup and makeup skills improve the more you do them, my skills and the things I like to use have been ever evolving. Trends evolve too. But once you know the basics? You're set.

Since I am headed to work very soon, I'll start diving more into this in earnest soon. What are some things y'all would like to know? Eyeshadow seems to be a popular one, as does contouring. The basics of makeup tools? Maybe some recommendations on specific products? Buying cruelty-free on a budget? Let me know!

      Okay this is new.  I'm on hold trying to order Yarmulkes for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah and I'm listening to Hip Hop in Hebrew. I shouldn't be surprised as music can transcend many languages and cultures. I've just never heard it before.

      Hallelujah! Customers have started paying their bills again! I don't know what happened for most of July and August, but no one wanted to pay for anything.
