TAG: My Makeup History

Hullo Lovely Ladies!

I've found this tag on a few peoples blogs now and just had to give it a try! 

How long have you been wearing makeup? 

I used to wear black eyeliner and bright eye shadow when I was very young, probably about 13 but I stopped when I realized that the "Goth/Emo" look just didn't suit me...I started really wearing makeup after my 18th birthday. 

What was your favourite makeup product in the beginning? 

After I turned eighteen, I spent some of my birthday money on some makeup and became obsessed with buying lipsticks :-)

What is your favourite makeup product now?

I've gone full circle and have gone back to eyeliner, much better quality ones than I was using at thirteen though.

What were some of your favourite brands in the beginning? 

I loved Boot's 17 in the beginning as well as it's sister brand Natural Collection.

What are some of your favourite brands now?

Like most people I have a pleasure for all things MAC but sadly can't afford them :'( 

I've been loving E.L.F at the moment which is much more affordable!

What is your everyday makeup like?

I don't really have an "everyday" makeup as I like to switch it up all the time, as long as my skin looks good and my makeup matches my mood I'm happy. 

Sorry for the silly pose, I'm one of those people who has a hard time keeping a straight face when taking pictures of myself :-P 

What is your going out makeup like?

A smokey eye and lots of eyeliner with a neutral lip...usually my MAC Creme Cup lipstick!

Again....another strange pose.....*sigh*

What makeup look are you known for?

Smokey eye shadow with a winged eye. It's something I have fun creating :-)

What is the worst beauty crime you have committed?

Falling asleep with a full face of makeup and waking up the next morning with panda eyes....dear god... I try not too but It's all according to how many vodkas I've had the night before ;-)

What is the worst beauty crime you are proud to have not committed?

As my mam likes to call it "looking tangoed" that horrid orange face with a line across your neck because  the foundation is totally wrong for you skin tone. So many girls at school used to have that look...strange enough it was the popular girls...I bet they regret it now when they look back on the photo's!

What is the one beauty trend you where part of but now aren't a fan of?

I used to buy the Stargazer know the ones you can get? 

Bright neon colours. 

Well when I was a teenager every girl I used to hang around with had some of those eyeshadows!!  At the time it was cool because neon was a big thing but now I would stay well clear!

What is the one trend you are proud to say you were never part of? 

Like a lot of bloggers I have to agree with the "foundation lip" sometimes I use a bit of concealer on my lips before I apply a lipstick just to get the best out of the colour because my lips are naturally very pigmented but I wouldn't go out with just that on my lips....usually the foundation lip went along with the orange face....double trouble! Hehe.

What is the one look you will never go for?

Other than the above mentioned?? Hmmm....I'm very scared about the amount of bronzer I apply to my face. I'm so pale that I either look ashy or really fake if I apply too much.

If you were brave enough to wear any look what would it be?

I have a friend who a lot of people would call a "goth" although as I actually know a few "goths" and she's no way near... but she does like to apply dark eyeshadows as well as a dark lip.

 I did it once for Halloween but I'm a bit too scared to make it work on a night out :-)

An old holy grail product of yours?

Bobbi Browns Long Wear Gel long as QVC keep stocking it I will continue to buy it...although I've only ever had to buy one. It's lasted me since last halloween! 

A new holy grail product of yours? 

Hmmm.....E.L.F Studio Blusher...they are so inexpensive but are great quality, I love them. My favourite at the moment is Pink Passion, for the days when I like to look like a china doll!!

So there you go!

I tag anyone who wants to do it :-P
