bonjour mes amis! its sunday and the weather is totally miserable in london, spent all day trying and failing to create a website - technology 1, emma 0. so i thought i'd steal a little tag from my good pal jess from the vanity account asking why do you wear makeup?
1. When did you begin loving make-up?
i probably became properly interested in makeup when i was a bit older, maybe about 15, but i do remember going into town and applying lipgloss every five minutes just in case i saw any 'cute boys'. alas i did not, and even if i had, what difference was a bit of lipgloss gonna make? applying a full face of makeup near enough every day began in year 11 i'd say. we weren't allowed to wear makeup to school unless it was natural but i managed to get away with a bit of founation, bronzer and mascara.
2. How do you feel without make-up?
if id been asked this a year ago i would have said HIDEOUS I WOULD NEVER GO A DAY WITHOUT IT. i literally used to put a full face of makeup on just to sit around the house. after a solid year of taking proper care of my skin and investing in good skincare products, i now revel in the days i dont have to put a load of makeup on. as a beauty advisor i have to slap it on a bit day-to-day but on my days off i leave my skin to breathe and couldnt care less about what i look like!
3. What do you like about make-up?i love experimenting with makeup and creating crazy looks for photoshoots etc, but for day-to-day wear i love that makeup can reflect your mood. i always used to think this was a dumb phrase but come to think of it, if im a bit upset or angry i ALWAYS have smokey dark eyes. if im excited to go out or feeling energetic i wear red lipstick. i think of makeup as art and i love that everyone wears it differently. you cant be right or wrong with makeup - its an opinion.
4. Three 'Holy Grail' items -
MAC studio fix concealer (my shade NC30)
NARS Laguna Bronzer
Bourjois Volumiser Mascara
happy remembrance sunday guys, i tag you ALLLL!
