I usually use little make up or none, due to dermathitis; even mineral powder/fundation can give me issues if used for more than 3-4 days in a row, so my family isn't used to seeing me with "complete" make up.

Yesterday I was refreshing my memory and did the whole thing: astringent, moisturizer, concealer, foundation, contouring. It took me a while to get everything right, but in the end turned out very nice. I went to my mother to show her, and:

Mom: "Are you going out?"
Me: "No mom, I wanted to see if I still remember this stuff"
Mom: "Oh, why?"
Me: "For cosplay! I want to look good, you know?"
Mom: "Oh, that's right! Wait here!"

She went to her room and came back with a still sealed Kryolan's micro foundation cream palette, the small one, and said: "I bought this to hide a scar, but it went away wit a bit of careful tanning, so you can have it. Use it and become even more gorgeous."

It's a small gesture and didn't cost her anything, but the fact that she remembered she had something I can use for an activity she has no interest in almost made me cry on the spot!
