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!

      Cancer sucks. My aunt was diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer in February 2018. Her goal was to see the birth of her first grandchild in early June but this afternoon they told us that she isn’t going to make it. Feeling pretty powerless right now.

      Thanks to the people who gave me condolences and support after my father's recent passing. 
      It's harder than I ever thought possible to go on without him.

      Surgery for TFCC repair tomorrow!  The next few weeks are going to be a tax on my naturally limited patience.
