So why do you wear makeup?

Why do you wear makeup?

It's a question I think a lot of girls are asked from time to time. Some wear it daily, some wear it now and again and many only wear it for special occasions and now and again you find people who never wear it EVER! I myself would wear it everyday if i could, but I'm lazy with a capitol L and because I have to get up at an ungodly hour every morning I actually don't bother with it. I could go for a week or so without it. You see makeup isn't something I need to's something i want to wear.

Now I've heard it over and over again "why are you bothering wearing makeup, we aren't going anywhere", "it's bad for your skin", " girls wear makeup to impress boys", "girls wear makeup to impress other girls" "people only wear makeup because to give themselves more confidence" etc etc the list goes on. I've read many articles asking why people bother with makeup and others from people saying they just don't feel like themselves without their makeup. Everyone has their own opinions to makeup and reasons for wearing it or not wearing it.

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation

"Makeup so refreshingly light, it melts right in, creating a fresh even look. So the only one that knows
you are wearing makeup is you"

So as many of you may know I'm trying to take a more natural approach to my daytime makeup, so in this quest for 'no makeup' makeup I've turned to my trusted friends Revlon. A few weeks ago I decided to try out the (relatively) new Revlon Nearly Naked foundation. I took a while choosing my shade and decided to go for 130 Shell, it was a little too yellow and pale for me but the shade higher was too warm for my skin tone.

My first FOTD

Today I've decided to write a little face of the day (fotd) post. It's only going to be about my makeup becuase I'm afraid I'm not fashionable enough to do an outfit of the day.

So today I had time to actually do my makeup before I headed off to college (yipee). So I took a few snaps of my makeup. I was going for a natural, not wearing much makeup look, not too sure if I nailed it though!

Catrice Calligraph Ultra Slim Eyeliner Pen

Okay, you know the way I always praise gel liner to the high heavens? Well I've got a confession. I've been experimenting. *gasp*

Now that you've had a moment to regain your composure, let me explain. About three weeks ago I came across my old Rimmel flash liner (it's a felt tip liner), and if I'm honest i kind of liked it. Now I've had it maybe 4 years or so but when I bought it I just didn't like it so I left it at the bottom of my makeup pile and forgot about it. I tested it out again a few weeks ago and really liked the style of felt liners. But the Rimmel liner is not only VERY out of date but it quite dry (if I remember correctly that's why I didn't like it in the first place so I can't blame the dryness on being around a long time), so i decided to try my luck out with a new felt tipped liquid liner. I took myself into town and did a spot of shopping.

This or That?

So Sally from the Makeup Directory tagged me in this really cool 'This or That' post. Thank you Sally!!
I thought I'd give a go because these are always nice to read to help you learn more about someone. It allows you a little insight into my mad mind.

Blush or bronzer? : To be honest, I normally wear both. Is that a beauty faux pas? Oops, if it is. I use the bronzer under the cheekbones (like a contour) and the blush on the cheeks. But if I had to choose to wear only one it would be bronzer because it adds a bit of warmth to my pale face.
