Why Do You Wear Make-Up Tag.

1. When did you begin loving make-up? 
Going from some of the photos taken of me in my final years of high school you would think I began loving make-up around the age of 16-17, funnily enough though I didn't start loving make-up until 3 or 4 months ago.  I had pretty decent skin when I was younger so I only ever bothered to put on eyeliner (check out my raccoon eyes below) and the occasional smear of lipgloss.  It wasn't until my first year of Uni that I was introduced to the Mary Kay range and started experimenting with blush and mineral foundation.  Whilst I loved the look that these products created and used them regularly, I still wasn't overly fussed on wearing make-up as a whole.  In fact once B and I moved in together I pretty much stopped wearing make-up altogether.. except for special occasions of course.  A few months ago however, I found myself actually wanting to get more in to make-up.  There were (and still are) so many parts of my life that I just had zero control over, and applying make-up to give myself a confidence boost was one of the few things I found I could control and even enjoy!

2. How do you feel without make-up?
If I've recently broken out, my skin is looking red, or the dark circles underneath my eyes are making me look like a zombie then I will probably feel pretty uncomfortable, but not so uncomfortable that I'll want to apply make-up just to duck to the grocery store or to sit around the apartment all day.  I feel totally comfortable not wearing make-up around my best friends, family and partner, so I guess that's a good thing.

3. What do you like about make-up? 
I like that it can be used to hide blemishes as well as to enhance certain features, such as my green eyes. :)

4. Three 'Holy Grail' items?
Rimmel 'Wake Me Up' foundation - The best liquid foundation that I have ever used!  It applies and matches my skin tone perfectly.  Excellent coverage that lasts all day. :)

Rimmel 'Match Perfection' skin tone adapting concealer - The perfect concealer for post foundation application.  I use this to hide any of the blemishes not fully covered by my foundation, and it blends in and covers them perfectly.

Rimmel 'Glam Eyes' Day 2 Night mascara - A mascara that has two different brushes built in, one for subtle day time lashes and the other for voluminous night time lashes. This is the best mascara that I have tried to date.


  1. I'm inspired by the fact that you feel confident without makeup. That is truly great, and I think you are truly beautiful! :)
