Thoughts Makeup Wearers Have When Applying Makeup
Jessica Stamey

Alright... I need somewhere to sit first and foremost because I can't stand and do this.

Okay now am I tan or pale today or somewhere in-between?

Oh no, that was too much foundation... I'll just put some on my neck, it costs too much to waste now

I need some music *turns on shuffle* no not that one, or that one, or that one... okay I like this one.

Why is this mirror so dirty? I should really clean it

After foundation comes concealer, which doubles as eye primer because I'm so smart.

*bursts out song lyrics* YOU CAN HAVE YOUR SPACE... COWBOY!

This "beauty blender" is also dirty.. why is makeup so messy but fun?

Gotta shape my eyebrows now, this is the complicated part, I swear.

Alright now it's time for the main event, eye-shadow. This is really what I've been waiting for.

Dang, this Morphe Palette 3502 is my favorite, and also the nicest one I have. Oh, I also love my ColourPop shades...

Okay, so what color is my top so I can match it... it's yellow, so I have legit endless variety.

*Pretends I'm making a YouTube video* I'm going in with a yellow shade and this brown color.


Now time for the wing, let's hope I don't screw everything up I just blended.

*Does wing 6 times and has to reapply some yellow eyeshadow*

Yeah, I knew that would happen.

NEXT, mascara! Of course this gets on my eyelid every time, but it look so pretty on the lashes...

Now I'll just go in with this e.l.f. blush, highlight, and contour palette and wet 'n wild contour.

That highlight isn't shiny enough, let's go with Heart's e.l.f highlight!


Now just add my setting spray *sprays everywhere but where it is needed*

*Adds some matte lipstick and takes selfies*

Okay guys so this is my finished look... wait... I forgot primer.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
