And by Beauty Boot Camp, I mean one that actually teaches you the basics of beauty. Are these things ingrained in women, and I just lost that gene? Where do peope learn these things? My sisters don't have any problems with this stuff, but I am hopeless. I am getting back into the workforce, and I can't even get myself together as well as the other stay at home moms in the grocery stores! I have tried books, and videos...everything I could think of. I'm hopeless.
You would think with all of the makeup and hair care products I have in my bathroom that I would be better at applying them. *Sigh*
As a reformed tomboy, I have to admit, I have NO IDEA how to blow dry my hair so it looks ANYTHING like it does when I leave the salon. I can't even come close. Seriously. I can't even keep my hair soft adn parted in the right place. I am a failure at hair. No matter how hard I try, it always just ends up looking like I didn't even try that morning, so why try?? If someone would sit down and properly teach me to style my hair and walk me through it, maybe I could look less schlubby on a daily basis.
Same thing with makeup. I am clueless. I just wear whatever the makeup artist or salesperson puts on my face. If I try anything new, I end up looking foolish. Half the time, even if I try to do what I have been shown, I look foolish. I need to know how to make myself look good on a daily basis, AND how to dress it up for special occassions. I also need to know how to adjust when I change my hair color or between winter and summer when my skin tone changes. And I need to not only be shown how, I need follow up care where someone will check on me the next day or two and make sure I did everything right, and if not, tell me how to correct my mistakes.
I am doomed to be a frumpy schlub...and with that happy note, off to my love affair with candles, soap, and pottery.....:)
