Why Do You Wear Makeup Tag!
Hello lovelies! I saw this on the gorgeous Cali Jae’s blog and just couldn’t wait to do it! So here goes!
When did you begin to like makeup?
I would say at around 10 or 11 years old. I was obsessed with the Bonne Bell lipsticks I had one that was frosted brown that smelled of cappachino. Yikes! I started to dabble in foundation in my early teens because I had really bad acne. I would do anything to hide it. I used to use Covergirl clean foundation in the hopes my skin would get better. I loved putting on eyeshadow and blush but I didn’t know how to do it properly, I would get so frustrated! So after highschool I decided to go to makeup school and learn all the techniques I had been so desperate to master. After that I tried to go freelance, ( I was only 19) and I remember my first client hating the makeup I did for her, I lost all my confidence at that point and quit! Long story short, I feel confident now thanks to my constant desire to learn and try new products and ofcourse You Tube.
How do you feel without makeup?
Even though my skin is relatively clear now, I still feel like I need something on my face, even if I’m going for coffee or to the supermarket on a Sunday. I usually wear Bareminerals or a BB cream on days off from work. I just feel exposed without anything. Don’t get me wrong I have been out bare faced before it just depends on how confident I am feeling about myself that day.
What do you like about makeup?
I love the endless creativity of makeup, all the different colours, textures and effects. The brands and their philosophy behind them, the packaging, how it makes me feel. I love how anything is possible, I can be full on glam one day then beach bronze another. I never stop learning there is always something I haven’t tried before or new ways to apply things. I love getting ideas from seasonal trends, TV,magazines and best of all You Tube! I can enhance my best features and hide my flaws. I live and breathe makeup, when I enter a beauty department its like all my Christmas’s come at once! I love nothing more than playing with makeup.
