Good evening everyone! (taps fingers together).
A few days ago I was tagged by the lovely Rebecca from Beckinablog, to do the Makeup Story Tag. I haven’t completed a tag recently, and seeing that I’ve been wearing makeup for a few years now, why not join in on this tag? Rebecca has an amazing blog with consistent content and crazy editing skills, and you should definitely go check her out!
Without further ado, here is my makeup story tag!
1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I initially had began to wear makeup when I was 14. When I was 16, makeup became a consistent part of my life and now I feel weird if I don’t slap some on my face before the school day begins.
2. How did you get into makeup?
Before entering the eighth grade, I had searched for “back-to-school” makeup for middle schoolers, videos on youtube. This was when I had first began to watch youtube videos, and eventually gotten myself into makeup. My favorite beauty vloggers are Zoe Sugg and Tanya Burr.
3. What are some of your favorite brands?
I like Maybelline for drugstore, and Benefit and Urban Decay for higher-end cosmetics.
4. What does makeup mean to you?
Makeup makes me feel happy. I get excited to wake up and go through my whole beauty routine on Saturday mornings, and I’m always in a better mood when I get to do my makeup in the morning.
5. If you could only wear four products on your face, what would they be?
I would wear a mattifying foundation, eyebrow pencil, waterproof mascara, and Benetint by Benefit to add color to my face.
6. What is your favorite thing about makeup?
My favorite thing about makeup are the variety of products and all of the creative opportunities that come with it. There are so many colors to choose from, and I love all of the beautiful combinations that can be created with a few makeup products.
7. What do you think about drugstore vs. high end?
The majority of my makeup is drugstore, including things from foundation to eyebrow pencils. I think that there are some amazing products from the drugstore and that in some cases, you are just paying for the name of a high-end brand. On the other hand, I love and use my Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay and Benetint by Benefit everyday.
8. What is one piece of advice you could give to a beginner?
Perfect your base. If you can create an even skin surface with foundation, concealer, and powder, any lip color, eyeshadow, or blush will look nice and smooth.
9. What is one makeup trend you never understood?
One of my teachers in the eighth grade had always worn a dark, berry red lip liner along the perimeters of her lips and a baby pink lipstick to fill them in. It looked fine from a distance, but was a little bit horrifying when you were up close and personal.
10. What do you think about the beauty community on youtube?
I’ve recently stopped watching beauty videos on youtube because I don’t have much time for them anymore, but I think it’s pretty cool. It’s amazing to see how far beauty vloggers have come, considering that I’ve been subscribed to some vloggers for several years.
