20 Thoughts Every Tomboy Has While Attempting To Do Her Makeup

"I don't have a Kabuki brush!"


When I was growing up, I never wanted to play with Barbie Dolls or put on makeup. From sunup to sundown I was outside playing or at a sports practice. Instead of enrolling in dance and learning perfect pirouettes (I learned that word from Dance Moms) and how to get my hair into the perfect bun, I chose karate where we yelled and broke boards with our fists.

So when it came to high school when most of the other girls began getting into clothes and makeup, it comes as no surprise that I had no clue what to do. Here are 20 thoughts that every tomboy has had while attempting to do her makeup:

1. "Ugh, I have to wear makeup tonight."

2.  "I'll just look at one of those makeup tutorials on YouTube and will look good in no time."

3. *While searching on YouTube* "I don't understand why you'd want to put this stuff all over your face."

4. *Still searching on YouTube* "When you wear lipstick, you have to worry about how you're eating so you don't smear it all around."

5. "Aha! The perfect look."

6. *Reading description of video* "I'll need primer, setting spray, highlighter, bronzer, loose and pressed shadows, a shadow base, pigments, eyeliner, lipstick, brow gel, a crease brush, a flat shader brush, a smudge brush, concealer, setting powder, blush..."

7. *Looks at my grocery store mascara, broken Elf eyebrow gel and one half-melted tube of sample lipstick I got at the mall*  "Well we might have a problem."

8. "I can make this work."

9.  "This cannot be that hard."

10. "Ok this isn't working."

11. "This mascara expired last year."

12. "Do I really have to wear makeup tonight?"

13. "I mean the natural look is in right now."

14. "I can fix this, I'll just mix some water into the mascara to get the clumps out."

15. "Well that didn't help. Ok, so we're down to broken Elf eyebrow gel and sample lipstick I got at the mall."

16. *Tries to apply lipstick, but it crumbles as you press it against your lips* "Ok, so no lipstick."

17. "I have 5 more minutes to get ready, what do I do now?"

18. "I'm not wearing any makeup, they'll get what they get."

19. "Wait, I have to do something with my hair? Maybe I can find a braiding tutorial on YouTube!"

20. "It cannot be that hard, I'll be done in 5 minutes."

6 Fun Hair Colors You Should Try This Summer



Coloring your hair can be a way to express yourself or to change up your look, whatever the case is it's fun. While it can be very expensive, most of the time it's worth it. These are some hair colors that would be fun to try out this summer.

1. Red

Redheads - which are you? ---- Perhaps a very broad definition. I`m copper. | my kind of hair.... in 2019 www.pinterest.com

Now, red doesn't have to be Ariel red, it can be a subtle red, or fire truck engine red- whatever you prefer. The color will most never wash out, you will always have a hint of red in your hair (just as a warning).

2. Purple

Shades of purple! Love these purple hair colors. #dyedhair #purplehair #purplecolor #haircolor #hairinspo | Hair: Hairstyles & Colors for Dyed Hair in 2019 www.pinterest.com

This is a good color if you are naturally blonde or have colored blonde hair because the color can easily go from purple back to a somewhat natural blonde color. But just as an FYI, the color washes out really quick, especially if you wash your hair often.

3. Blonde

If you have black hair or brown, this could be a fun change. You don't have to dye your entire head, it could just be the ends. But if you are expecting to go blonde in just one trip to the salon you are going to be disappointed. It's going to take at least 4 times to get to what you want if you have dark hair. It is also a big commitment and a big expense.

4. Blue

This is always fun if you are trying to channel your inner mermaid! There are so many shades of blue that the options are endless, but if you have already blonde hair it will eventually turn green because of the yellow hues in your hair. The best idea is to bleach your hair before putting the color on this way it won't result in having a weird hue in the weeks after coloring it.

5. Pink

This color is always a fun go to, it's one of easiest to do and doesn't require a lot of maintenance, it will show up in most hair colors. While it does washout pretty quick, it will look just as awesome as it fades.

6. Brunette

If you are a blonde who is trying to change it up this would be a fun adventure, there are so many different ways you could go brunette, either a nice light brown or chocolate brown even can go as far as dying it black. Either way, there are so many options that will fit anyone's comfort zone.

Being someone who has dyed their hair a good number of times, understand the fear and commitment that goes into doing it because it's a big change especially for those that have never done it before. It's also pretty expensive, and can leave your hair damaged, but if you find the right salon and there are plenty of great products that can help with damage and protect colored hair it should all be a positive experience. Now, the one thing everyone should know before going into a salon is that what you want might not happen because you don't know how your hair will react with the color. Just go in with an open mind and a good idea of what you want, but trust that your stylist will try and get you exactly what you want.
