    Very glossy lip products do not suit me,

    neither do shimmer lip products. Very pale and very dark lipsticks don't suit me either yet I see people buying purple and other strange colours for their lips. I've noticed whenever a new makeup brand comes out and people do their hauls they've always bought things I wouldn't...

    Who has heard of Freedom Makeup London?

    I've tried looking at some of the products others have bought, no one appears to be that interested in what I picked out! They've gone for brights, conceal palettes, bronzer and silver/blue lipsticks.

    for hours trying out different types of makeup. Makeup every day. All the time.

    I love makeup. Period.

    Life without makeup (for me) is like life without air; just not possible. I love to experiment with my looks, what colors go with what, how pale I can make my skin, etc. I love many different kinds of brands; NYX, NYC, Milani, elf, CoverGirl, Almay...I love them all. I draw...

    "Girls wear makeup to impress men.

    This girl I follow on Instagram,

    @punchingpictures, is absolutely amazing and provides endless inspiration. This is the first time I have tried to recreate one of her looks though and I absolutely love the way it turned out. :)

    Putting on makeup is

    such a spiritual experience tbh, I can see myself going from maybe, 3.5 to a solid 5 in front of my mirror. It's great.

    I've loved makeup, ever

    since I was about 12-13. I started out with eyeliner/mascara, moving into high school if tried out brows and lipgloss. Now here I am. Top is about 3-4 years ago, bottom is now. Practice helps. A lot. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm pretty damn proud of myself for not...

    I love makeup so much,

    it makes me feel beautiful! I'm afraid to say it sometimes though. There are so many "makeup shamers" out there that automatically say I only like makeup because it hides how ugly my natural face is.

    I have a lot to say about makeup

    but no one to say it to. I grew up being taught that makeup was bad because if you wear makeup you are essentially telling God you don't like how you look. I hard such a hard time believing that and my fascination with makeup only grew as I got older. I promised myself that I...

    After a long hiatus from putting a face on,

    I had an entire evening of privacy, to work on makeup skills. OMG, I realized I'm an idiot! Things began routinely. A facial scrub, followed by a very close shave, followed by moisturizer. Everything's good so far. I sat down at the vanity, began applying foundation. My...

    I love makeup but I'm not

    so sure if I'm that good at it. My favorites (which I recommend) include the melted lipsticks by too faced, NYX lip plumper and conceler, and the Maybelline fit me stick foundation. They all work amazingly well.

    I keep it pretty natural around my eyes

    and go bolder on my lips. Every once in a while I'll go full blown beat to the gods but I don't like all the makeup on sometimes. I feel like I can't breathe.

    I can't get enough and the fact

    that I now work at Sephora is making my addiction worse. I just splurged on Limecrime Velvetines as well as the new Jaclyn Hill Morphe palette. Man that was so stressful cos the site crashed lol. After I got my new year's midnight kiss I was literally on the site hahaha smh

    I think that I most enjoy testing out different

    eye shadows and eyeliners; I always love to see how they interact with my eye color. :) I tend to wear a decent amount of makeup: concealer (is a must for me), eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, eyebrow pencil, and sometimes lipstick. However, I've also been told that I am not very...

    I love makeup! I'm one of those people

    that believes makeup doesn't cover up natural beauty-- but enhances it. Any makeup lovers, please message me to discuss makeup techniques, tricks, or any sort of brands that you believe the the best. (Drugstore or department)

    Learning From My Sister

    Once I started to regularly wear feminine undergarments, my sister, 1-year-older than me, suggested I try makeup, too. I had been watching her, my mom, and my aunt for some time, so the suggestion was something I had been thinking of. She offered to help me since she felt me...

    I love makeup so much.

    It makes me feel better about myself, it makes me feel beautiful and it hides my flaws because flaws is all I'm made up of but here is me without it T_T

    so absolutely so delicious about trying new looks. Every time I pop open my kit and let the brushes do the work I gain a little more pep in my step.

    I truly love makeup. My face is a canvas

    and I can do whatever I want with it. Pink lipsticks are my weakness. I think makeup just enhances your beauty. Wish I could afford the high end products but hey I'm doing perfectly fine with the drugstore brands. :)
