Why Do You Wear Makeup TAG

Hey Everyone!

The other night I got to thinking about how I portray myself through Julz' Obsessions. I think my 'life self' and 'blog self' are pretty much the same, but its easy to present myself the way I want you to see me, brushing my flaws aside. I am therefore thinking about doing a few posts about insecurities, though I am slightly worried about the reception they may receive, so let me know if that's something you might be interested in. 

Anyhoo, I thought the 'Why Do You Wear Makeup TAG' would be a good place to start with the whole 'getting to know the real me' thing.

1. When did you begin to love makeup?
I've always been pretty interested in makeup, I always remember begging my mum to put makeup on me as she was doing her own and smearing the Avon kid's cream blush over my cheeks when I was really young. Around age 10 I would wear lipgloss and maybe a bit of concealer. I started putting on makeup as a routine when I went to high school. However, I only began loving makeup around December 2011 when I discovered the wonderful world of beauty blogs. My love has just grown and grown since then!

2. How do you feel without makeup?
Without vs with makeup
Probably like the majority of us: naked. Its weird but I feel really self conscious going out without makeup and feel a whole lot more confident with it on. 

3. What do you like about makeup?
My everyday makeup when I started bloggng and my everyday makeup now.
I like that its like art. I find doing makeup really, really enjoyable. When I'm super busy with exams and studying etc, its a part of my day I really look forward to, especially at weekends when I have time to experiment. There's always something new and exciting to try and different looks to create. I love how, used correctly, it can enhance your features and make you look like a better version of you.

4. Three 'Holy Grail' items?
Find this is my guest post on Natasha's blog here

So there we have it. Its actually quite a short TAG but I've certainly went on a bit. I don't usually tag specific people but today I shall, but if you're not tagged feel free to do it anyway- that's what I done- I just thought it looked like a good one to do.

I tag Melanie, Becky, Islay, Hayley, Becky & Siobhan.

Make sure to send me a link if you do it :)
