I started wearing make up properly when I was about 13 or 14. It wasn’t much maybe a bit of foundation and mascara, I was pretty clueless. I learnt a lot about make up through friends, like I had no idea about powder or concealer when I first started wearing make up! Over the years I experimented with make up and I now feel that I’m confident with make up and know what not to do! I cringe when I look back at pictures from when I was 14/15. I had a little rock chic phase and my eyes were pure black…. black eye liner, black eye-shadow, black mascara! I’m surprised I didn’t have black lipstick on!! I’m so glad I grew out of that one quick 😛
I soon moved on and the bright eyeshadow phase began! It all started with a Claires Accessories eye shadow pallet, I used to wear a colour on my eye lids and a colour under my lower lashes. It looked really funky, I’d probably still do it for a gig/festival/hen party but definitely not casually or for work! As I matured and went to uni I kept my look simple and on nights out I ‘d opt for the smoky eyed look, praise jesus I’ve managed to master that look!
My favourite make up look now as a 21 year old has to be my gold glitter eyes and red lippy 🙂 I don’t always wear lippy but my glitter is a must!! I find that it compliments my bright blue eyes 🙂 I’ve had a lot of compliments about my glittery eyes! I probably haven’t picked my best picture but its the only one I have to hand where you can see my make up clearly. I use a number of glitters and I will do a top 5 post on my favourite products but my lipstick hasn’t changed. The red I use is by Natural Collection and the shade is “Crimson”. Now I do have other lippys but red is my favourite! ❤
How has your make up developed over the years? Were you lucky to find the “one” straight away or were you like me and dabbled in a few looks before finding your look 🙂
