Howdy-do Blogger Friends
Everyone has snippets of their past I think they will never forget. One of many for me is taking a trip down to the corner store to buy candy and the most recent episode of Betty and Veronica (all for which could be bought for under a dollar…and it was a bill…not a coin)
I was around 7 when I became hooked on the teenage drama that would ensue. Would Archie stop being a dink to Betty? How many burgers would Jughead eat? Would Ethel finally get a real kiss out of him?! And would Reggie and Veronica just hook up already and take Archie out of the picture and leave him for Betty…seriously, I felt Betty’s heartache!!
Fast forward 30 years and I am no longer hooked on the comic (I haven’t actually read it in a VERY long time….I should actually pick up a copy and see what is going on in the modern Riverdale world!) My obsessions…er…”interests” let’s say…have grown over the years.
As a teenager I never wore make up.
I mean NEVER
Didn’t even own mascara
MAYBE a white lipstick but who didn’t back then?!
I didn’t really bother with it in University either except if I was going to the bar. It wasn’t until my late 20’s that I started learning about, and really being interested, in the beauty world.
Now…it’s much more than an interest.
I read beauty blogs, watch beauty guru’s on YouTube and stay up-to-date with the most recent advances and trends in the makeup world. It’s actually a bit ridiculous. BUT….not when it is combined with a childhood obsession. (um…well maybe to some it makes it even more ridiculous?!)
I am a fan of MAC cosmetics…I wouldn’t say it’s my favourite go to brand but they do, in fact, rock. They come out with a ridiculous amount of limited edition collections every year and the most recent one made me incredibly happy! So I picked up some things (I guess I will admit to asking my mom to go and pick up the most requested products first thing so I could have them before they sold out…) and while I was making a purchase the salesperson asked if I had signed up for their official launch…get your makeup done by an official MAC artist, meet MAC’s Betty, Veronica and Archie and listen to some cool old tunes? So I said no but SIGN ME UP!
And I went.
It was fun.
My makeup looks great.
I got a sneaky little pic with the guy they had dressed up as Archie
The Setup at Mapleview
Tools…I had my makeup done with the Betty side of the collection (with the exception of a Veronica blush)
Archie…an inspiration for little ginger boys everywhere!!!
The before and after….
I wonder what the next pop-culture collection will bring?!!
Thanks Beth-from-MAC-at-Limeridge (soon to be at Mapleview for those interested! She was great!)
Thanks for stopping by!! (and quietly judging my obsession)
Hugs and Love
