My Makeup Story.. Tag

I saw this on the lovely ellybellybaybee's blog and thought id have a go 

1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup??
i remember one of the first times i ever wore makeup, i had a ballet concert and i was allowed to wear a little bit of silver eyeshadow haha, along with a face covered in glitter. I think i was about 14 or 15 when i properly started wearing it, i used to wear bright purple eyeshadow and uber thick purple eyeliner haha, as well as foundation way to dark for my skintone (orange face white neck comes to mind).

2. How did you get into makeup?
iv'w worn makeup since i was about 15 but when i was about 17 and went to romania, some of the girls were quite glam and their makeup looked flawless, one of them holly did my makeup to go out, after i saw how much doing it properly could alter my look i was completely hooked!!

3.What are some of your favourite brands?
i like a mix of everything my favourite high street brand being bourjous and my favourite high end brand being either MAC or benefit (the packagings always a winner)

4. what does makeup mean to you?
makeup can enhance a look and features, it makes it easier to express myself and show my individuality without being to out there. it also gives me self confidence, for example if im having a bad skin day i just wack on some concealer, or if im feeling a bit colourful i just pick a nice shadow or lipstick

5. if you could only wear four products on your face what would they be??
concealer, mascara, eyeshadow, eyeliner

6. What is your favourite thing about make-up??
it can change a look, i have so many friends that are naturally gorgeous that with a bit of makeup can just look wow haha. it also gives people confidence which is a really good thing

7. what do you think about drugstore makeup vs high end make-up??
il admit it is nice once in a while to treat yourself to something high end, and have something you'll treasure, but most of the time some of the drugstore brands do the same thing as the high end stuff, plus i love finding a dupe for something expensive :) 

8. What is one tip of advice you can give to a beginner?
do what you feel comfortable and don't copy everyone (remember one shade of foundation doesn't suit everyone) and also the more you experiment the better your outcome

9. What is one makeup trend you never understood??
i know a few people have mentioned it but definitely the whole concealer on lips

10. what do you think about the beauty community on YouTube and blogger??
I have talked to so many lovely people because of blogging, ive also learnt some great things, all the gorgeous girlies are great and so friendly, yeah ok there are some that make it a competition of followers and are mean to others, but that is a very small minority, and most bloggers are just bloody great :) for YouTube i give everyone single person who posts a video credit because i don't think i would have the guts to do it!!
