17 Jul MY FIRST BRUSH COLLECTION.
When I wrote this, I didn’t know my mom was posting about brushes too. I guess, it’s a timely post since this is a tribute to her.
As many of you know, I am leaving Manila soon to chase my dreams. And with the many changes and transitions that come with that, I’ve been very nostalgic and emotional.
While I was sorting through my makeup, deciding which ones I was taking, getting rid of and keeping, I stumbled upon the first makeup brushes I ever owned. They were hand-me-downs from my mom. If you’re a true makeup junkie, you would appreciate the condition of these brushes – some of which were the very first collections from certain brands.
I remember very clearly when I got them. It was the summer before high school and my mom wanted to sort out her makeup. Doing the same thing I just did, she decided which ones she was keeping, getting rid of and handing down to me. I was lucky enough to snag about 20 of these brushes. And I guess you could say, the rest was history.
That summer was a pivotal moment in my makeup journey. Although it took me years to commit to become a makeup addict, that day was the beginning of discovering who I was through my passion.
For that and many other things, thank you mom.
