My Make Up Story Tag!

I was tagged by The Makeup Diaries to do this tag - so thank you! :D

1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I didn't really get into makeup until the end of school. I did wear mascara occasionally when i was younger but i didn't really branch any further than that until i was about 16.

2. How did you get into makeup?
I started to become more interested in makeup from youtube tutorials and beauty blogs. I was fascinated by the looks people could produce and enjoyed 'attempting' to recreate them.

3. What are some of your favorite brands?
I love a good MAC lipstick! But i also really like more affordable drugstore brands like MUA and Maybelline.

4. What does makeup mean to you?
I think makeup is fun! I wouldn't class it as a necessity as i enjoy wearing no makeup and of course you could live without it, but i love experimenting with different colours and formulas and trying out new products! I guess i think of it as a hobby, and i find it entertaining watching tutorials and learning about new products.

5. If you could only wear 4 products on your face what would they be?
Definitely a brow product, to be specific i would say Benefit's Gimme Brow as i love feeling like my eyebrows are shaped and look a little more groomed; I would probably say some kind of concealer or foundation just to cover up any blemishes i might have on my face; I love lip products so i would say a lip balm as my lips are always dry, and a pink lipstick maybe MAC's Lovelorn.

6. What is your favorite thing about makeup?
The variety and choice! There is an unlimited amount of looks you could create with all the makeup products out there, which i love as it means you can be as unique and different as you want!

7. What do you think about drugstore makeup vs. high end makeup?
I really like both! I think there are hits and misses in both drugstore and high end you just have to look around to find the best products. High end is nice as a treat, but i love finding a great affordable drugstore product!

8. What is one tip of advice you can give a beginner?
Everything takes practise! So what if you're rubbish at applying eyeliner? Who cares if you really cannot recreate a smoky eye? With time and patience you will improve, or you will just embrace the fact you cannot get every aspect of your makeup perfect, and instead you can focus on the things you are good at!

9. What is one makeup trend you never understood?
I agree with The Makeup Diaries answer on this one. I'm really not keen on the coloured lipsticks like blue and yellow. It may be because i really would not have the confidence to be so bold and wear one.

10. What do you think about the beauty community on Youtube?
I love some of the Youtube Beauty Gurus as their videos are so well put together, and they always create looks that are gorgeous. They provide really useful tips, and put in a lot of time to provide so many videos. The only thing that is a downfall is that there can be a lot of negative comments flying around that i personally feel aren't deserved and i can imagine it could be pretty upsetting to read.

So those are my answers! I'm going to tag a few bloggers who i have been enjoying reading posts from recently, but i also tag anyone reading this if you fancy giving it a go:

Pearls and Sparkle
Annie Writes Beauty
Freshly Pressed Beauty

Thanks for reading Xx

  1. Love this post! May have to give it a go myself. I agree with the coloured lipsticks, I just don't quite understand the trend, each to their own I guess!

    1. You should give it a go! It was really fun to answer these questions as it really made me think! Yeah i agree about the trend, i'm sure people really like coloured lipsticks i just don't think i could dare to wear myself! ;) xx

  2. Great advice for a beginner, you're so right.

    Agree with your comments about youtube personalties, there can be some very hurtful things put on their channels; but sometimes jealousy can get the better of some people.

    Great post :o)
