Cosmetics are weird

35th of Spring 516 AV

Ashley sat in her room, a two candles lighting the room as Ashley looked into the mirror... She clicked her tongue as she narrowed her eyes. Her scar seemed to be popping out in the way the light hit her face... She wasn't sure how to respond to herself... She supposed her brother was the one to blame for the... Vile scar, even in death he seems to still be getting in her way. She clenched her fist at the thought of him... Though she quickly pushed it back to the corners of her mind.

Ashley reached over to the small box full of cosmetics... She only really knew how to cover up the scar, other than that she wasn't quite sure what she was doing and was just stabbing in the dark. She felt like it was about time she started to actually practice the arts of cosmetics if she was going to succeed at her goals...

She opened the small box and studied it's contents, there were a lot of powder like materials that would help her cover her scar... She could see what could be identified as a 'shadow' of sorts, something she has saw some of the prostitutes wear under their eyes. She supposed she would need it if she was going to act like a woman and use her body to get her goals. Something looked like a blush of sorts... There were a LOT of options, just from the limited amount she had.

Ashley picked up a pad, it was a soft and was covered in small bristles. She wasn't sure was exactly this was used for but she could make some guesses, she brought the thing down and pressed it into the light red make up... What she presumed to give a false "blushing," for apparently men (or women you never know) find a small blush attractive on females. Slightly odd in her opinion, as most of the time she did not find women just blushing randomly. Of course this excludes winters, as mostly everyone got a redish tint on their cheeks... She shrugged, she never really got most interactions with people.

She picked the pad up and found it had picked up some of the make up powder. She raised an eyebrow and patted it against her cheek... She kept looking at the mirror, not sure what to think quite yet of this whole blush thing... So far it looked... Okay, not the best, not the worst. She stopped patting and began rubbing on the other cheek, switching hands so she can see what she was doing with the mirror.

Ashley was finished, she did a... Decent job... It was a tiny bit patchy on her first cheek, and the tone was thinner on the second. She took the pad again and began to fix the make up to the best of her ability. (Which isn't much, in all honestly.) She was still not satisfied fully with it, but it would have to do as her abilities increased, as practice makes perfect. After all her first disguise was anything but... Unsatisfactory.

She placed the pad thing back into the container and looked into the mirror once more, she looked better than before when she first checked. But it still looked bad in her mind... It was frustrating for her as she felt her fists curl and squeeze into hard fists as the frustration got to her slightly.

"Ugh." She said as she looked over the other cosmetics. There was this odd pin point brush, a thick brush, a medium brush. There were a lot of brushes. She didn't know what to do, or how to go about it. The blush thing was completely guess work. How was she even going to remember half of these things? She shook her head slightly as a loud sigh escaped her lips. She ran a hand through her hair as she continued to stare at the cosmetic kit in front of her.

Ashley frowned once more, she sat there and looked at herself for a few chimes before she took a small cloth and began to rub the cosmetics off her face. She sighed loudly as she noticed the cosmetics just smearing off her face, she screamed on the inside a bit as she began to rub harder. It was just flat out annoying at this point and she was getting tired of trying the cosmetics on for right now. She would just have to deal with only knowing how to cover her scar.

Ashley placed the brushes and pads back into the cosmetics box, making sure it was neat she closed the box and flipped up the clasps. She tossed it to the side of her bed and pushed it away with her foot so she would not crush the small box when she got up in the morning. She continued to stare at the box, she wasn't sure why but she did, she assumed it was just a bit of boredom that was slowly setting in on her.
