It’s time for another tag! This one is so much fun because it’s more personal than other kinds of tags. I’ve been blogging for about a month now, so it’s probably a good time to start being a bit more personal so you guys can get to know me some more! I found this particular tag on Makeup by Amy Perrone and it looks like it’s gone around quite a bit. Well, time to dive in and spread the tag some more!
1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I was about 12, I think, and in 6th grade. I started experimenting with eyeshadow (yes, the horrible blue colors) and I would wear some mascara. I always went with brown though, until a few years ago, because I thought black was too dark. It’s only been in the past couple of years that I’ve really delved into makeup and started trying different products like lipstick and foundation, which seem like normal stuff, but my makeup history has been simple!
2. How did you get into makeup?
I suppose I just wanted to seem grown up when I first started. It seemed like every other girl was wearing makeup, so I wanted to as well!
3. What are some of your favorite brands?
My two favorites are e.l.f. and NYX! Most of my stuff is from those two brands. They’re affordable and they have a lot of quality items.
4. What does makeup mean to you?
Makeup is just a lot of fun for me! I try not to take it too seriously because I don’t want to start using it to make me feel better about myself. I want to feel comfortable with or without it, but sometimes it helps me with my confidence by allowing me to experiment and try new things!
5. If you could only wear 4 products on your face what would they be?
Concealer, powder, mascara, and a tinted lip balm!
6. What is your favorite thing about makeup?
I love how creative it can be! I especially love that I can do so many things with just eyeshadow and create so many looks.
7. What do you think about drugstore makeup vs. high end makeup?
I pretty much only use drugstore makeup, so I don’t have much of a comparison. But I’ve found that many drugstore makeup brands have really good items and you don’t have to pay a ton of money to get them!
8. What is one tip of advice you can give a beginner?
Start simple. You don’t have to dive right into contouring and eyebrows and winged eyeliner if it all seems too overwhelming. Just try some everyday makeup stuff!
9. What is one makeup trend you never understood?
I don’t really understand the extreme contouring. It just seems like too much work and I don’t understand why you would want to change the shape of your face and its features. It would be a lot to keep up with!
10. What do you think about the beauty community on Youtube?
I don’t really know much about it, so I don’t really have an opinion. I watch videos every once in awhile though!
