Moving to England however, has changed me. I started going on nights out with my boyfriend and his friends and feeling severely “face naked”. Even going to work and the shopping centres I just felt *blah*. People in England make an EFFORT! Dammit. The last couple of years I’ve been a bit of an “eye junkie” and only focused on products to enhance my eyes, as I was always one of the few that didn’t really need concealer or foundation. But the odds have not been in my favour, the English weather and water (of which there is plenty) have cursed my skin. I get red patches, more frequent breakouts, and dry skin one week and oily the next. THANKS! Jerk.
So, I’m super late to the makeup wearing game. BUT in the past year I’ve quickly become obsessed.
Growing up I never wore makeup-no foundation, eyeshadow, bronzer or blush. Once in a blue moon I’d put on some lip gloss like everyone else, or maybe brush some mascara on quickly. Why you may ask? My mom never wore makeup/still doesn’t. Why should she? She’s gorgeous without it! Blessed with great skin, and big gorgeous blue eyes with dark lashes that don’t even need mascara. Not to mention for me, playing a sport in every season – not the best time to plaster your face in products.
This is probably the most made up my mom and I ever were growing up…clearly stylin’.
So I’ve started a little collection of makeup that has severely grown over the past couple of months. Couple my new purchases with youtube tutorials and I’m turning into a makeup monster. I’ll try and post all of my new loot and tell you how I’m getting on with it as well.
If anyone has any must-have products they can’t live without, I would be more than happy to take suggestions!
