tag post: Why Do I Wear Makeup?

Tagged by the sweet Ashley from Ciao Bella. Have you guys checked her blog out yet? She has amazing beauty posts, a Fall nail of the day Series, and a great tip for bloggers who are having "blogger's block" - she has some great tips for you so head over to her post and tell her I sent you!

1. When did you begin loving makeup?

  • I've always loved makeup but because of my acne-prone skin I did not wear a lot of makeup growing up. In my head, I was thinking if I pack on all those creams and powders on my face, I will just break out some more so I kept it to a minimum of sunscreen and lip balm all through out HS and College! 
  • I wanted to get back to it, when my skin got better and so I look more put together for when I used to work but when a specific brand broke me out I knew my theory was right! My face is so picky, I can't just put any makeup on! So before jumping back into the makeup pool, I had to do some reading and research! I am so glad a lot of beauty brands out there now uses more natural ingredients than super harsh chemicals hence my shopping-beauty-problems!

2. How do you feel without makeup?

  • I don't have a perfect skin, but I can go grocery shopping, Dunkin Donuts, Walgreens , USPS and the deli which are just a few blocks from me without any makeup on. If I am about to hang out with friends and family, I need to put my full face on since I know there will be picture moments and I need to be picture ready, duh!

3. What do you like about makeup?

  • I love how I can express myself that day with what color I put on my face. I want to  look fierce, I go for a bold lip color. I want to look simple but put together, I go for a nice neautral-gold eye makeup. If I'm feeling daring then I'll go wear some bolder, brighter eye makeup. 

4. Three holy grail items:

  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains: when in a hurry, I grab these!
  • Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil: I use this on my dry skin problem areas, eyes and lashes, hair, lips and cuticles!
  • Jordana Fabu-liners: no look of mine is finished without a winged liner!
