TAG: My Makeup Story

Wednesday, December 08, 2010
Here are my answers to the TAG suggested by Lidia of Alice in a New Wonderland! It's a really nice tag and I hope you'll answer as well! 
Basically you have to answer these ten questions:

1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
Believe me when I say that I don't remember! xD I think it was when I was around 12/13 because of my really bad rosacea I had to wear foundation to conceal it...Then I started to put on some black pencil eyeliner ...and so on!

2. How did you get into makeup?
It was a gradual process. As I've mentioned, I started with foundation...Then, when my rosacea healed, I used concealer and black pencil liner...Then I added mascara, lipgloss and so on...I began experimenting with colors and eyeshadows...And here I am! xD

3. What are some of your favorite brands?
Madina Milano, essence, Urban Decay, Sleek MakeUp, Mac, Makeup Forever just to mention a few =P

4. What does makeup mean to you?
It means unleashing your hidden self, what you wanna be, enhancing your real beauty, which isn't necessarily the external one, it means to like ourselves with both values and flaws...

5. If you could only wear 4 products on your face what would they be?
Foundation or concealer, Mascara, blush and lipgloss or lipstick

6. What is your favorite thing about makeup?
Experimentation and the confidence it gives.

7. What do you think about drugstore makeup vs high end makeup?
If a product does its job, it doesn't matter if it's drugstore or high end...Obviously, cheaper makeup is more accessible for a university student, but this doesn't mean it can't be worth trying. One more thing: I think that sometimes we all deserve to treat ourselves with some little caprice ;)

8. What is one tip of advice you can give to a beginner? 
Don't overdo! Begin with less and eventually add more after you've mastered the "technique". And practice practice practice!!! :D If you don't do mistakes, you won't learn!

9. What is one makeup trend you never understood?
Like my colleague Lidia =P BLACK LIPS!

10. What do you think about the beauty community on YouTube?
Beauty bloggers are kind, respectful and nice...I don't know the YT community so well, but I can definitely say it's much more "risky" in terms of visibility and haters and such...Since you show your face on the net you're more likely to be criticized...It's more harsh and there are many people that do videos for the sake of being the centre of attention... That has nothing to do with sharing passions, thoughts and advices! However, I agree with Lidia, once again, that there are some YT makeup gurus I really love for their creativity, skills and lovely character!
A few of them: Pixiwoo (the Chapman Sisters),Lisa Eldridge, ,TheMissRettore... I want to add Giuliana Makeupdelight too, she's so sweet! :D


Now it's your turn! You're ALL tagged! ;-D
What's your makeup story???
