TAG: My Make Up History

Thursday 13 September 2012

I was tagged by The Made Up Maiden to do this post on my make up history. I hope you like it and if you do it, please link the post in the comments below! 

1. How long have you been wearing makeup?

Since I was a teen. At school we had a strict make up policy, and wasn't supposed to wear it. But we got away with tinted moisturiser, mascara and a lip balm. I think this is the reason why I prefer a simple "no make up" make up look even now. 

2. What was your favourite makeup product in the beginning? 

I've always loved lip products. Lip Smackers and The Body Shop lip balms were the IT things when I was younger. Also I was obsessed with TBS vanilla perfume. 

3. What is your favourite makeup product now?

I still adore lip products, but I also really love a scented body lotion.  My favourite has to Jurlique's Jasmine Body Care Lotion. It smells amazing and the scent lasts all day without being overpowering. I also adore MOR products. 

4. What were some of your favourite brands in the beginning?

The Body Shop, Australis, Ulta 3 and Covergirl. Things are so different now. Girls in high school are buying Mac and Chanel make up, but when I was at school no girl did. 

5. What are some of your favourite brands now?

I love to splash out sometimes with Dior or Chanel, but it's a rare treat. For make up I love Bourjois, Napoleon, Australis, Natio, Rimmel, Nude By Nature and Face Of Australia.

6. How would you describe your makeup 'style'?

Really simple.  Very natural and earthy. I love the chic boho look of Nicole Richie or Kate Hudson.

7. What is your everyday makeup like?

I normally have it basic with foundation, pale brown eyeshadow, mascara and a nudeish lip gloss.

8. What is your 'going out' makeup like?

I don't go out very often, but my going out make up is either darker eyes, or a bright lip. I'll also put on highlighter and blush. 

9. What makeup look are you known for?

Not really any "look" but all my friends know no matter what we will do (even if its lounging around) I'll always have make up on and a cute dress. 

10. What is the worst beauty crime you have committed?

Sleeping with my make up on. Which I barely ever do anymore. I think I've done it once in about 4 months. Also brushing my hair when it's wet. 

11. What is the worst beauty crime you are proud to have not committed?

Hmmm, I think I have committed every beauty sin :(

12. What is a trend you were part of but now aren't a fan of?

Hmmm, it's not that I'm not a fan of it anymore, but I think the black smokey eye look. It just doesn't work with my skintone. 
I love it on others though. I do love a brown smokey eye though. 

13. What is one trend you are proud to say you were never part of?

Hmmmm i guess the Jersey Shore look. Plastic, orange and OTT.

14. What is one look you will never ever go for?

Goth, because I'm too pale for black. 

15. If you were brave enough to wear any look, what would you go for?

I'd love to have colourful hair. 

16. An old HG product of yours?

Fudge 1 Shot leave in conditioner. It's the best leave in conditioner I've ever used. 

17. A current HG product of yours?

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. I love it! Also Lanolips Lemonaid. And MeMeMe do an amazing pink blush. 


  1. Found this really interesting! I wish I could learn to do amazing eye makeup that suits my skin tone and to indefinitely stop wearing makeup to bed! Also totally agree about school kids nowadays, its crazy! All well and good if they have part time jobs and support their buying habits but I would certainly not be dishing out cash to my teens on a regular basis for luxury brands!

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking that beauty was VERY different back when I was a teen :)

  2. I wish I had the disposable income of a teenager!
    Just once in your life you should dye your had a mad colour;)

  3. I love reading these, I find them so fascinating.
    Dying my hair pink was the best thing I ever did fashion wise, I definitly suggest. Pick a colour, any colour, and go for it!


    1. I just read your answers on your blog :) Now I'm interested about the Jack Black lip balm!

  4. Great post!
    I tagged you in my liebster blog award post!

    1. Awww thanks hun! It means a lot to me. I'll get it done very soon :) XO

  5. I loved your answers, thanks for doing this!

    I think we were all obsessed with TBS when we were younger! I also think it's funny that we all mentioned not being fans of the trashtastic/Jersey Shores look. :P

    1. Hehehehe, TBS must have made 99% of its profits from school girls ;)

  6. You could definitely see your expertise in the work

  7. I'm not sure exactly why but this web site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I'll
    check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  8. You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I to
    find this topic to be really one thing which I think
    I'd by no means understand. It seems too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I'm having a look forward on your next put up, I will try to get the grasp of it!
