TAG: Memories of makeup

Hello all.
Whilst on the bus on my way home today I made a mental list of what I needed to buy, makeup wise. On that list was a new mascara as mine has started drying up. Somehow thinking about the mascara led to me thinking about the first time I really played with makeup. So I decided to make a little post sharing my memory and thought I could make it into a tag.


Image found on Google.

My best friend when I was little had this really cool makeup palette. It was shaped like a hat. When you twisted the cover it revealed many leaf shaped eyeshadows and under that layer there were some blushes and powders. We loved to play with it and especially loved to play with the eyeshadows. The kit also included a mascara. I remember trying to apply the mascara, it was the first time I had ever used one and I applied it to the back of my lashes, if that makes sense. My friend laughed when she saw me do this and showed me the right way to do it, and it involved very much eye poking.

So that was my first memory of makeup.
I would love it if you would write about your first memory (or just a fun story from when you were little) and post the link in the comment section, I will definitely read it!

Two Faced (and a visitor)

Hello all. On Monday and Wednesday I snapped a couple of pictures before I went to school and I thought I'd show them to you. I also took pictures yesterday and today, but I look so incredibly tired on them that I decided not to post them. :P

My makeup was basically the same on both days, but I added eyeliner on Wednesday.


I realise that you can't really see the eye makeup, but it was very simple and just like in the post below. :)
Oh, and in case you were wondering I got the shirt from Zara, but sadly it's rubbish quality (well, it was v. cheap), there are threads everywhere and I had to re-sew all the buttons!


I had to give a talk on Audrey Hepburn on Wednesday, so I decided to do a flick in her honour, and I am v. proud of myself, because usually when I have a flick I accidentally smudge it so it only lasts about five minutes, but this time I didn't! Also, as it was St. Patrick's Day on Wednesday I wore greed suede heels (but forgot to take a picture). :)


* Gosh touch up concealer no. 2
* Maybelline mineral concealer
*L'oreal true match foundation, rose ivory
* Mac MSFN, medium
* Gosh cover corrector stick, 1
* The Body Shop bronzer, 01
* Mac powder blush, Fleur Power

* Gosh eye shadow base
* MAC Shroom eyeshadow (all over lid)
* MAC Soft Brown eyeshadow (in the crease)
* Maybelline Colossal mascara
* Gosh eyeliner pen (worn on Wednesday)



On a completely different note, spring is here! For me, spring doesn't arrive until I see snowdrops in one of the gardens I walk past every day to catch the bus, and this week I did! A bunch of pretty little snowdrops (my favourite flower, can you tell?) and even a tulip popping up. So I snapped a picture on my phone, and I apologise in advance if the quality is bad.



You might have to enlarge the picture to see the tulip, but it's on the bottom left hand side.


Hope you're all enjoying the beginning of spring! (or autumn maybe?)

Soft Neutrals

Hello all. I just got back from my best friend's and I thought I'd quickly show you what my makeup looked like today. :) Sadly my skin is a bit of a mess, I have lots of breakouts, I don't know whether it's just a hormonal thing, or if it's something else, but I hope it goes away soon! Thankfully I have a fringe so it hides the worst bits. :)

EDIT: I do know why I broke out. I stole some of my sister's shampoo and it broke me out. :( It was the Bedhead Superstar shampoo (pink tube). I realised that that was what it was because only my forehead broke out and my back, and I have long hair and a fringe. Oh well, that'll teach me to nick her stuff! It's cleared up now anyway. :)







I'm wearing:
* Gosh touch up concealer no. 2
* Maybelline mineral concealer
*L'oreal true match foundation, rose ivory
* Mac MSFN, medium
* Gosh cover corrector stick, 1
* The Body Shop bronzer, 01
* Mac powder blush, Fleur Power

* Gosh Soft'n Shine lip balm, 30 Barbie

* Gosh eye shadow base
* Mac eyeshadow, Shroom and Soft Brown
* Gosh eye liner pen, black
* Maybelline Colossal mascara

It always seems like I'm wearing so much when I write it down, but I don't wear a lot of foundation or concealer, only in the places I need it. :)

I thought I'd add a picture of how I wore my hair, I rather like how it turned out, I used a French comb to pin my hair in what was going to be a French twist type thing, but it ended up looking a bit different.



Hope you're all enjoying the weekend. :)
