I started this blog back when I was 14 years old, and to be honest I had no idea what I was doing whatsoever. I was hardly even into beauty, but I desperately wanted to start a blog and had an ever growing collection of about five lipbalms (strange how I though that was a lot back then and now it doesn't even rate on my radar in terms of my makeup collection!) and figured a lip balm review wouldn't be too hard to write.
Well, I was pretty appalling if I'm honest with you but I feel that I have grown a lot since then, certainly expanding my knowledge of makeup and beauty. Anyhow, back to the story! - as I do have a beauty blog, I notice other people's makeup more than anything else, and I think it is safe to say that many teens are prone to making horrible makeup mistakes.
If you could pass on some wisdom, what would you say? I myself am very conscious of my makeup and how I appear to the outside world...I cater my makeup for the occasion, that is for sure!
Were you victim to an awful makeup 'look' when you were 16? What should I stop myself from before it is too late! For those of you who are my age, what do you ensure that you never mess up when it comes to makeup?!
I would love to hear any horror stories you have to share!
I'm actually happy with 16 year old self (except I'd smack her for NOT wearing makeup to her formal!) haha!ReplyDelete
I was the same though, I figured blogging was easy as pie and just threw together a review... so happy I've come this far though!
Good on you Jasmine! Haha, was there any particular reason that you didn't wear makeup to your formal or you just didn't get around to it? :) Blogging certainly is not at all as easy as it looks!Delete
Well the main reason behind it was because a lot of girls at my school wore a lot of makeup, and they were tarts lol, so I didn't want to be included in that whole group. I think my 16 year old self couldn't really distinguish between wearing lots of makeup and being tarty and wearing just a tad to give yourself a different look!Delete
Fair enough...it's still the same way!Delete
Red lip liner as eyeline, black lipstick and way way too light foundation. No more shall be said.ReplyDelete
Wow, that's pretty impressive Claire...that's uh, full on :)Delete
No more black eyeliner on the waterline, Sophie, with just foundation. No more.ReplyDelete
Ahhh, black eyeliner is always a problem for young teens! :)Delete
i'd like to go back and help my 16 year old self out with makeup looks hahaha i think i was actually pretty good with it at that age because i kept things SIMPLEReplyDelete
I think that is an excellent way to go as opposed to doing hopelessly crazy looks! :)Delete
I used to wear a lot of black eyeliner, it was not a good look.ReplyDelete
Oh dear...that black eyeliner causes a lot of trouble!Delete
