I've got to admit that I haven't purchased any new makeup products in months (like... over six months). And it's not out of choice or because I want to declutter my belongings, it's actually because my economic situation has changed and those weekly beauty purchases are no longer possible. It has been a "blessing" in disguise and I'm not complaining. I do own too much makeup to be able to use it all up by myself. This has led me to rediscover products I had neglected and find new uses for some of my old favorites. So all of the products I used today have already been featured on the site before. Particularly the Urban Decay 24-7 Liquid Eyeliner in Siren which I showed last month.
Having written about teal eyeliner, I wanted to take the opportunity to sneak in a topic I had hoped to write about at some point. Three months ago I watched Megan (Wonderful You)'s video on her experience during her first pap smear and all the follow up tests after that. The video itself is very sincere, Megan is very candid. I appreciate the fact that she made this video and think it should have many more views. Women's health is a taboo subject riddled with confusion, misinformation, lack of information, and embarrassment. If you've ever wanted to learn more about PAP tests (which can detect cervical cancer) or ovarian cancer (which is not detected by PAP tests) but were afraid to ask (or it never even crossed your mind), here are helpful resources: the National Cervical Cancer Coalition and the T.E.A.L. Foundation. These foundations use the color teal as their identifier in order to raise awareness, that is why I decided to include this blurb in my ombre teal eyeliner post. Have a great week! :)
Note: I am in no way affiliated to any of the charities or foundations mentioned. I was not asked to feature them on my site. I simply want to utilize this medium to spread awareness, bring exposure or inspire donations towards causes that are important to me.
