Tag: Why Do I Wear Makeup?

Hello! So I've seen this tag on quite a few blogs recently and thought I would do it too! I love doing tags as they are simple posts to do, I am quite busy this week so it's just nice to do a post like this! If you do this post or have done it already leave a comment with a link so I can read it! As always if you want to do this post, do it! I tag everyone!

1. When did you begin loving make-up? 
When I was 12 I wore eyeliner and that was about it! It wasn't until I was 15 that I started wearing a little bit more, I would go into Boots and buy so many things. I have always been a good saver and when I was 15 I didn't have many things I needed so a lot of my money would go on makeup! I started watching youtube videos and reading blogs when I was 15 which I when I was aware of different brands and techniques like contouring and highlighting. I would say it wasn't until I was 16 when I got OBSESSED with makeup, it was then when I started looking at makeup artistry as a career and when my collection grew!

2. How do you feel without make-up? 
NAKED! I only ever go out of the house with no makeup on if I'm going to my local shop or something! I guess it's bad as I think girls should feel better without makeup on. We really don't look that much different without it on, but I feel like I look like a different person without it! 

3. What do you like about make-up? 
I love how it can "change" parts of a person. If you want to make your nose look slimmer or your cheekbones more pronounced you can. I am not very confident but without makeup I would be even more shy and self-conscious! To me it's something I can be creative with and experiment with!

4. Three 'Holy Grail' items?

Mac Face And Body Foundation - My favourite foundation of all time, I love this stuff!!

Estee Lauder Gel Liner - I love this! It is creamy, not too dry and not too liquidy! I use it almost every day, it lasts all day and takes ages to run out! I got mine in April and still have so much left!

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara - My all time favourite mascara, I always struggle as I have such straight lashes! They DO NOT curl! Even when I use eyelash curlers! I love this mascara as it is not clumpy and makes my lashes look long and like they have a curl in them! 

I hope you have enjoyed this post! I am in the process of making my own tag post up, although I'm not sure what to do it on! Any ideas? :)



  1. I have this post coming up on my blog soon :) Great answers. I really want to try the Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara, so might pick it up soon :) xx

  2. Great tag. Im yet to try face and body but heard good things about it. Once I finish studiosculpt im going to buy a bottle:)
    And I agree girls should feel more confident without makeup on but I couldnt bring myself to do it..maybe if makeup vanished we'd have to but for now Im not stepping out the house without it haha x

    1. Thank you! I really want to try studiosculpt! I would definitely recommend face and body though! :) xx

  3. I love tag's and this one is great. I agree on the no make up part I've recently changed my opinion on it and I need to b more comfortable with it but it is difficult.
