My name is Maria Cano, or mariiacano, or @mariiacanoa on Instagram. Since I was a little girl, makeup has been a big part of my life. My grandmother would put lipstick on me every Sunday night before dinner. It made me feel special. The love for makeup faded for a few years until we reunited again. Now, I am obsessed. Which is why I started A Lazy Girl’s Guide To Makeup & Skincare.
Once again, here I am with a new blog. This time I’ll write about something I am still learning about, but thoroughly enjoying (even though it’s making me broke). The first makeup I ever wore was a pressed powder from Avon. I also had an Avon blush. The powder was way too thick and dark for my skin, but I didn’t care. A couple of years later, I was introduced to black eyeliner and the waterline. It became my new obsession and I got so used to seeing myself with eyeliner, that I didn’t feel me when I didn’t have eyeliner on. I felt naked. And this is when I realized, my makeup journey didn’t have an ending in sight.
I was sixteen or seventeen the first time I saved money and bought myself some M.A.C. makeup. It hurt. I bought the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, a blush I still have, and a brush the sales associate said I could use for both. I felt so grown up and so special, like these things were going to make me a better person. At 22, I now understand makeup is not going to change who I am, but I still enjoy the experience of being able to enhance and cover features of my face as I please.
My makeup collection has grown as new trends evolve and as I now have my own paycheck. But, every time I swipe my card it still hurts a little bit. Until I get home, sit in front of the mirror, and begin to use them.
