In my last post, I came up with the Target Self-Checkout MIRROR Selfie Challenge. The challenge was born out of doing makeovers under fluorescent lights and then remembering how I once thought there was someone else standing behind me when self-checking out at Target. It wasn’t a grumpy stranger impatiently waiting; it was my reflection. Those lights and that camera lens is brutal! Thus the Target Self-Checkout Mirror Selfie Challenge was born.
However I have now completed the challenge, and now know there is no mirror there its actually a camera monitor. Embarrassing I know, but that goes to show just how much I was horrified by the reflection; I just assumed it was a mirror and never looked at it again.
Executing the Challenge:
I arrived at Target after putting the kids to bed with a clean moisturized face. I went in and picked up a Halloween sticker book and then headed to the self-checkout. I went to pay and realized I had forgotten money. I told the cashier, and he told me to just go to the car and get it and then come back and finish checking out. I went and got my money and came back, but now I had a cashier hoovering around me. I pressed on. With as much Suave as I could muster, I started snapping selfies. It was around this time I realized it was not a mirror but a monitor and it was higher than I remembered. It should be said that my reflection was as scary as I remembered. I did the best I could and could feel eyeballs burning into me as I was snapping away.
Convinced I got some decent before shots I headed back to my car and proceeded to do a Maskcara HAC using just the overhead lights. I did it as I normally would do with the same colors I normally use. Once I was convinced I blended enough I headed back to into Target. This time I got a gel sticker set for my daughter and then went to the same self-checkout register. I pulled out my phone and started to take selfies. I most certainly looked like a goober taking selfies, but my reflection in the camera monitor was not nearly as horrifying. Would I put it as my Facebook profile picture? No. Do I think it demonstrates how well Maskcara preforms under florescent lights? Yes, I do. My skin tone was evened out, dark circles look more tired mom less Uncle Fester. My jawline is defined and I have check bones under my rosy cheeks. In my after picture I have the #reallifefilter on and in person it looked natural not cakey.
I am really glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and faced down that monitor. Would you try doing a Target Monitor Selfie Challenge? If you do I would love to see it. Check out my video for a better understanding of how things turned out!
