Why Do You Wear Makeup?
13 Dec 2013
If I'd asked myself this question 6 years ago when I was at College without a doubt my answer would've been: to cover up, to conceal, to hide behind. Any of the three. Wearing make-up was something I did more out of necessity than because I enjoyed it. I wouldn't even dream of leaving my house without make-up on. 6 years later however? My answer is simply because I enjoy it! I love the way make-up can change and enhance your face and give you renewed confidence in your self.
Since finding the beauty blogging world, my interest in make-up has grown exponentially to the point where I now can't go into Boots without making at least one cheeky purchase. But now I see it as a way to enhance my features rather than covering them up, so buying make-up is a treat to myself. That's what I tell myself anyway! Creating new looks and finding new products is something I really enjoy, whereas before I would buy staple products simply to cover my face.
I still prefer to have make-up on when I'm going out, but I don't find my naked face quite as horrific as I used to. Which is always a good thing! The blogging world has definitely opened my eyes to how make-up should be used. :) What's strange is that I actually wear more products on my face now than I ever did before, but I'm definitely not hiding behind them anymore.
One product I won't forgo though? Mascara! My eyes literally do not look awake otherwise!
