100 Days Of Practicing Makeup (Round 1)

Main Commitment: I will practice makeup.

Start Date: 2017-12-31

This is a very personal project. Making up is a required skill for women. I thought it was a waste of time and worried about the harmful integridents in makeups. Despite my negative emotion towards makeup, I have to think about one method to push myself to learn it. This is the inspiration of the challenge.

“100 Days of Challenge” can be extended to any skill that you do not enjoy but is required to be learned.

Rules

  1. I will try to practice makeup once per day.
  2. I will track my progress here and push to GitHub.
  3. Watching makeup tutorials will not count towards the challenge.
  4. I will only skip a day if something important comes up. And when I resume, I won’t count the day I skipped as one of my 100 days.

Some important additional considerations

  • Don’t skip two days in a row, and try not to skip more than 1 day in 2 weeks.

Milestones

  1. 1 Day (Day 1: 2017-12-31 Sunday)
  2. 7 Days (Day 7: 2018-01-11 Thursday)
  3. 30 Days
  4. 60 Days
  5. 90 Days
  6. 100 Days

Day 1: 2017-12-31 Sunday

Today’s Progress (achievements and frustrations):

My skin color is darker than the host and I have dark circles. The eye color she used does not have an effect on my skin.

Thoughts and Emotions:

  • I like the tutorial Makeup for acne skin (Chinese) very much. Because it is suitable for acne skin. Most of the hosts have good skin (or they adjust color) and do not emphasize on how to conceal red spots.

My roommate said the foundation is much lighter than my skin. I will try different foundation tomorrow.

Tomorrow’s plan

  • Try a different foundation

Day 2: 2018-01-01 Monday

Today’s Progress (achievements and frustrations):

I made up before going out.

Thoughts and Emotions:

I applied both the new foundation and old foundation. I looked whiter. Tomorrow, the only new foundation will be used.

Tomorrow’s plan

  • Use the new foundation only

Day 3: 2018-01-02 Tuesday

Today’s Progress (achievements and frustrations):

I used the foundation stick only. It does not cover dark spot well.

Thoughts and Emotions:

I am not sure whether the foundation stick not well or my technique is not good. I got the foundation sticks from Clinique’s Black Friday sales one month ago. There is no foundation stick from other brand as a control group.

Tomorrow’s plan

  • Concealer with liquid lighter foundation + Foundation Stick

Day 4: 2018-01-03 Wednesday

Today’s Progress (achievements and frustrations):

Makeup before going to work. This is the first time I did it.

Thoughts and Emotions:

Forget about how much time would be spent time on makeup. Just do it. Then I did it.

Little liquid foundation cannot cover dark spot. I think it is ok to have dark spot which makes me look not fake. I fogot applying the concealer which is close to my skin color.

Tomorrow’s plan

  • Don’t forget to apply the concealer which is close to my skin color.

Day 5: 2018-01-08 Monday

Today’s Progress (achievements and frustrations):

  • Applied makeup before going to the department

Thoughts and Emotions:

I missed 4 days in a row. On Wednesday, I did not have time for makeup in the morning. Then the next few days, I chose to stay at home, and the motivation to makeup was near 0.

I am happy to resume the challenge.

Tomorrow’s plan

No plan. If I continue to do it tomorrow, it will be great.


Day 6: 2018-01-10 Wednesday

Today’s Progress (achievements and frustrations):

  • Applied makeup around 3:30 p.m.

Thoughts and Emotions:

My lamp color is yellow. I cannot see the true effect from the mirrow if I makeup at night.

The sky becomes darker around 3:30 p.m.. It motivated to makeup today.


Day 7: 2018-01-11 Thursday

Today’s Progress (achievements and frustrations):

  • Applied makeup around 3 p.m.

Thoughts and Emotions:

After reading tutorials on Udacity (Grow with Google Challenge scholarship), I used makeup as a rest. Then I will do excercise on Udacity.


Day 8: 2018-01-12 Friday

Today’s Progress (achievements and frustrations):

  • Applied makeup around 3 p.m.

Thoughts and Emotions:

I did not want to do makeup. I used the CBT method to push me to do it.
