I love the hair in #25. But in a lot of those pictures, there’s way too much Photoshopping going on. Your skin should not look like plastic. .
Yup. A lot of those look as cheap as they are.
It’s been my experience that people ask “where are you from” as a safe question to better get to know someone. It seems very normal in small talk for Americans to ask this of someone they’ve just met, especially if that person has an accent or an unusual name. I don’t think it has anything to do with trying to establish your otherness, just getting to know you. :/ I’m white with a perfectly normal name and still get the question all the time when meeting new people.
I’m gonna guess this author has never taken a technical writing class. If the instructions were truly for beginners, they would be a lot more clear. For example, they wouldn’t assume a beginner knows what all the terms mean - base, concealer, etc Besides, the steps listed are out of sequence. Mascara goes on last, not before eye shadow.
