The Makeup Story Tag (Text Heavy!)


Hello lovely!
I'm going to warn you right now that this post will be very text heavy.

A huge shoutout to the Roshelle and Alyssa, aka The Makeup Diaries for tagging me to do the Makeup Story Tag! I suggest that you read their take on the tag, and read their other posts because they blog about almost everything beauty related.

1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup? 
I started wearing makeup at a very young age due to dance recitals. But I really started wearing makeup daily when I was 16.

 2. How did you get into makeup? 
Like I said, I wore makeup for shows, but other than that I actually started wearing makeup because I felt pressured to look a certain way or follow the trend since my friends wore makeup at a young age. 

3. What are some of your favourite brands? 
My favourite drugstore brands are Maybelline, Revlon, and Rimmel London. However, my favourite high end brands are MAC, Nars, Urban Decay, and Benefit. 

 4. What does makeup mean to you? 
Makeup is an enhancer...well it should be anyways. Makeup should bring out your best features on the face. Some days when I do my makeup the way I want it to, it gives me great confidence and a positive mood for the day. 

5. If you could only wear 4 products on your face what would they be? 
Hmm that is honestly really hard, but I would say concealer, eyebrow powder, mascara and lipstick.  

6. What is your favourite thing about makeup? 
My absolute favourite thing about makeup is that you can create so many different looks to depending your mood. Let's say that I want a more natural look, I would minimize to a certain amount of products to use. Or when I have a dance show, I would have heavy makeup so that the audience can see it beautifully. 

7. What do you think about drugstore makeup vs. high end makeup? 
Drugstore makeup is great for those who are ballin' on a budget, whereas high end makeup is quality over quantity. Personally, I love both because you can find great products at the drugstore for cheap or splurge and treat yourself with a good quality high end makeup.

8. What is one tip of advice you can give a beginner? 
My advice to beginners is stick to neutrals when it comes to eyeshadows, and blend your eyeshadow so that there aren't any harsh lines. Also, a huge tip is to know your skin tone whether you're a warm or cool tone.
 There are a lot of no-nos when it comes to foundation and concealer. Always pick the right shade or ask a beauty consultant at the store you're in for help. Lastly, be sure to practice your makeup because you always learn from trial and error. 

9. What is one makeup trend you never understood? 
I never understood those who wear thick, heavy and unnatural looking false lashes. To be honest, sometimes those thick lashes look like spiders attached to the eyelids.

10. What do you think about the beauty community on Youtube?
If it weren't for the beauty gurus on YouTube, I wouldn't have known so much about makeup. I wouldn't know any good products because I wouldn't have anyone to recommend it to me. I wouldn't know how to create smokey eyes or put on bronzer. All in all, the beauty community on the interweb is awesome because you learn so much from other people.

Well I hope that you enjoyed reading my take on the Makeup Story tag!
