Why Do I Wear Makeup Tag

I was tagged by Sophie from Born to Buy to answer four questions. If you like my "What the postman brought me" posts, check out Sophie's blog, as there are a whole heap of haul posts and reviews.

Anyway, getting back on track... Here are the four questions and my answers to them:

1. When did you start loving to wear makeup?
Ok, I just made that question up. Sophie had "When did you being loving makeup?" on her tag, whilst Mishelle from Mishelle's Sleepy Time had "When did you start wearing makeup". So I sort of merged the two...

I started wearing makeup when I was about 15. Started off with concealer and eyeliner, trying to conceal my pimples and trying to define my eyes. And then my love for makeup started to grow shortly after, as soon as I found out how much makeup can enhance your appearance without having to undergo any surgeries! A cheap and painless option :P

Foundations and mascara (and an eyelash curler) entered my life a few years later. I didn't really get into them all that much until I realised how much of a difference mascaras made in terms of opening the eyes. I really like how foundations really even out my skin tone and makes my skin look so flawless. That was the when I started really loving to wear makeup. However, I'm not exactly sure when that happened. I'm guessing some time in high school, maybe in year 10 (16 years old) or 11 (17 years old)?

2. How do I feel without makeup?
I feel absolutely naked. As unhealthy as this sounds, makeup gives me confidence. It makes me feel beautiful. It minimises (and sometimes completely covers up) my flaws and enhances my assets. I cannot leave the house without makeup on! Although I did yesterday to do an emergency run to the vet...

3. What do I like about makeup?
Oops... I've answered it in the previous question. I like how it makes me feel, and how it can improve and enhance my appearance so effortlessly and quickly (compared to other options, such as cosmetic surgery).

4.  List three HG items.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush (haven't got a HG colour, I love all the ones I own!)
Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Baby Doll - hands down my favourite gloss in the whole wide world!
Sleek Dip-It eyeliner

So that's all the questions, if you would like to do this tag please comment below with the link. Would love to read your answers! :)
