I Love Makeup

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,293 People

    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. :)

    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...

    Make Up Was My Canvas.

    As a teen I had chronic acne and was so self conscious. I worked as a shampoo girl in a classy salon. I learned how to conceal my blemishes and accent my good features. I was a licensed make up artist by 15. I dreamed of a future in cosmetology. I became a stylist instead and...

    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 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.

    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...

    I wish I could bring out my own brand.

    -All wearable colours, no brights. -No glitter -Mostly mattes, some metallic satin finishes There doesn't seem any brands that do a lot of sophisticated colours.

    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.

    There is just something

    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 think people tend to despise makeup more

    nowadays... Not sure why. As a women I have the right to do what ever I want to make myself feel beautiful & frankly makeup does that for me. I'm not happy with how I look without it sooo I see makeup as more than cosmetics, it's art, and personally it's part of me.

    I'm a bit of tomboy (I like to be girly

    sometimes) and I can do my makeup very well I just don't like applying it on everyday. And everyone always ask me who does it when i wear some...and surprised when I say me, so thank you YouTube for teach me how to apply makeup like semi-pro!
