Hello lovelies, hope your all having a nice day. So earlier today i was tagged by the lovely Julz from Julz' Obsessions to do the why do you wear make-up? tag. I have seen this tag floating about for a little while now so I'm really glad i got tagged as i suppose it gives you a little more insight to what I'm like and not just my opinion on a certain product. So lets jump to it...
When did you begin to love make-up?
Well believe it or not i use to be a massive tom boy, i still am a little bit at heart i think. But I wasn't one of these girls in secondary school who loved their make-up and was constantly reapplying lip gloss, although with that said i did love my mascara and eye liner. It was only really after becoming a mum (back in 2011) that i wanted to take a bit of pride in my appearance and actually look a bit womanly. And around that time i got into the world of You Tube and blogging and it was mainly through that i just found this underlying passion for it.
How do you feel without make-up?
Now I'm not going to lie, if it's just my little family at mine and I'm not going out the house i ain't bothered but i am the type of person who will put their face on to pop to the shop. Now that i conceal,wear foundation, contour and fill in my brows i dislike what my natural face looks like, it makes me feel naked and not that attractive. However with that said i do not put my face on to feel attractive to other men, it's basically to please myself and so i feel more confident around other woman, i know that may seem odd but a lot of woman in the "real word" are incredibly judgemental when it comes to looks. I also like to wear make up so that people don't think that I'm some council estate teenage mother, now i really don't mean that in a nasty way or to put anyone down, but we all know this world is judging and people do put you down on face value. I have a baby face and before i fell in love with make up I'd get funny looks whilst pushing my son around, however now I'm just a "normal" mother who fits the mold.

What do you like about make-up?
I think the main thing i love about make-up is how it can completely transform someones confidence and therefore happiness. I find it very upsetting when people think their ugly and hate the way they look, now i know earlier i said i dislike how i look naturally but there's a huge difference between that and someone actually hating their own face. Yet with i few simple little items they can actually feel confident and walk around with their head help high, now i think that's an amazing thing. I'm also an incredibly artistic person and i do consider make-up an art so i thoroughly enjoy doing it and find it very relaxing and enjoyable to do.
Three "holy grail" products?
-My first would probably be the MAC mineralize skinfinish natural in medium, i love love love this powder and yes although it is on the pricey side i think it just makes my skin look almost flawless and is really great for setting your concealer.
-I suppose i would also pick my MUA pro-base conceal and highlight kit, as i find it conceals my dark circles quite well and i love the highlighter cream.
-And lastly another MUA product but this time their mega volume mascara, i bloody love this mascara, i would go as far as saying it's the best one I've tried and i am currently on my second.
I tag all of you who haven't already done this tag and would like to do so, if you do make sure to leave me a comment so i can have a little look. I hope you enjoyed this post and got to know a tiney tiny bit more about me. Thank you all for reading, have a great day and i shall see you all again soon x
