It took me around 3 years convincing myself to purchase a Dior Backstage Palette in Cool Neutrals (002), and I finally did. In the worst timing ever. It’s the pandemic, people rarely ever wear makeup, more so go out of their homes. So why? Putting on makeup and prettifying oneself even for zoom meetings, or no occasion at all feels good and comforting.
It was fairly “new” because we just transferred there from our apartment, after we decided to move back in with my mom and brother so we’ll have help and company in this pandemic. No regrets. We just needed time (and money) to give our room a mini makeover. As they say, “A clean room does wonder for the psyche”.
“The pandemic has been difficult, especially for kids who already struggle with depression and anxiety,” says Brooke Gomez, LPC, a clinical therapist at Children’s Health℠. “One of the things we advocate for mental health is reaching out, socializing and leaning on a social support system. But because of COVID-19, now we’re telling families to do the opposite and stay socially distanced, to protect their physical health.”
