I bought Moose foundation

Heavy layered foundation and  properly contoured makeup is the latest trend. In every make up tutorial, you will see how layers after layers of foundation is being applied. Contouring is must. It is different then late 90's and early 2000's cake look. Non wonder, it gives flawless result in the end.

However my luck in this matter is not that good. I am never able to achieve that cake neither that layered look despite having the products. This makes me sad. There should be a way for the world to see my layers of foundation. Real foundation stick costs 1.5 k Pakistani. I once had Christine's stick. Currently, my foundation is liquid and from drug store most of the time. Sometimes fake as well. I dunno why, I personally feel like nothing after applying them on my face. 

Annual function is on this coming Saturday. I want to look professionally flawless. There was local stick of 350 Rs and the real Moose foundation was of 400 Rs. Stick was giving dry look. I bought moose for the first time.

Hope for the best.

Am I too optimistic?

It was raining cats and dogs at 7:00 am on Thursday, and I do leave my home for the university at 7:54 am. We are having longest monsoon season this year. They are not that heavy rains but Karachi is not capable to handle them. Then at 8:45 am I got the message that university has been closed. It was supposed to be.

Eid Al Adha is here as well. Picture this: Cattle animals, their stuff and dung, smell and all that, cherry on the top, rain. It is getting messier. Seems like nothing anyone could do about it.

There are lots of things we can't do anything about. My August wasn't that good by the way. There was so much mismanagement. And I have this bad habit of reaction. Life can't be the way I want_all the time.

All is not my bad, but I have also noticed that people are worried, scared, calculated and alert most of the time. The element of uncertainty is here. No matter how much you assure them, they will be in the state of worry. Actually they don't have much expertise to handle the situation. Knowledge and experience are two different things. Smart is one who has experience. On the other hand, I deny all the negativity. I strong believe nothing can go wrong. Whatever happens, happens for the best. And there is nothing in this world which can't  be fixed. We all learn from our mistakes.

Am I too optimistic?
