Tag: Why do you wear makeup?

My first tag post! I've seen this going around the blogs so thought it would give you a bit more of an insight into me and why I love beauty.

When did you begin to love makeup?

When I was at secondary school. I used to get teased when I was young because of my pale skin, red hair and the fact I wore glasses. I discovered that makeup made me feel better about myself and how I looked.  I started out discovering things like mascara, and as I got older, I started to experiment more with eyeliner, different colours, and developed a bit of a habit for nail varnish!

How do you feel without makeup?

Naked! Seriously, I can quite happily go out without any 'face' makeup (foundation, blusher etc.) but without mascara and some eyeliner I don't feel like myself. My eyelashes are virtually transparent without it, so I don't leave the house without those as the bare minimum.

What do you like about makeup?

The way it can transform how you look and how you feel. If I feel a bit down, I pop on a bright lipstick, for a bit of glitz, some sort of glittery nail polish. It generally just makes me feel better about myself and more confident.

Name 3 'holy grail' items

Ok, this is very tricky to nail down to just 3 thing, so here are current favourites...

Lancome Hypnose masacara - it gives me the full lash effect I always want

YSL Touche Eclat - at a push I can go without foundation so long as I have this handy (still hunting for a cheaper alternative though!)

Bourgois 1 second nail polish remover pot - makes taking nail polish off so easy and quick, a must for when you change it as often as I do!
