I don’t know how many of you know about Glambot – if you don’t, I’m here to educate you, son! Glambot is my latest addiction; I’ve got it bad, and that ain’t good. Glambot is, in short, a used makeup site. That might send you running for the hills, but I implore you to just wait and hear me out. Before doing any kind of review on this site, I purchased fairly extensively from it, and researched it heavily.
Sorry for that brief delay, a friend was coming to visit and I didn’t have anywhere near enough posts queued up. Onward! The original title was “The Disconnect Between Beautiful Cartoon Girl’s Makeup and a Beautiful Star’s Makeup”, but decided that this title was a little easier to swallow.
I actually draw quite a bit, although not as much as I should nowadays, and I have animated short scenes (nothing fancy). As it is, I have a great interest in cartoons, how they’re timed, set, written, animated. The old cartoons are my favourites to study, and Looney Tunes in particular.
What I find really entertaining is cute cartoon girls. I really like them. The classics like Red and Betty Boop and the more modern Jessica Rabbit and Holly Would alike. What humours me is how most of their makeup would be considered tacky! Let’s look at some cute cartoon girls and see what they keep in their purses.
Disclaimer: I’m entirely aware that these are drawn by people, thousands of times, and thus the designs need to be kept simple! Nobody has time to draw 50 lashes moving smoothly thousands of times, but this post is meant to be a bit cheeky, so take it as such.
I’ve discussed with you before how much I hate lipgloss, and during that time, I also said that I would be reviewing a boatload of lipglosses soon. I never did! Well, let’s recap: I hate lipgloss because it’s sticky, heavy, takes off my lipstick underneath, and isn’t opaque enough to wear on its own. In spite of this, I have somehow have collected about a dozen lipglosses.
Who is your makeup inspiration? A makeup vlogger? Someone on pinterest? Perhaps someone you know in real life and idolize? Personally, I draw inspiration from all sorts. My favourite day to day inspirations though, are the girls on the wall.
