Confessions of a Teenage Makeupaholic

With my first post, comes so much excitement. Now I have somewhere I can load all the tips,tricks & things I have learnt and share it with all my fellow avid makeupaholics. The first time I began to discover makeup, was at the tender age of 12;
It was the first day of grade 6, and I flounced down the stairs. My father looked up from the newspaper he was reading and I swear his jaw fell to the floor.
"What do you have on your face?" He exclaimed, his eyes wide in shock.
"Just a bit of mum's black eyeliner and lipstick" I responded with a big proud smile. With that came the cliched saying, "March up those stairs and take all that makeup off young lady". I even saw Bruce Jenner say it to his young daughter when she decided to go to school with black eyeliner and red lipstick, on Keeping up with The Kardashians. I then cried to my mother begging her to convince my father that I really am entitled to wearing makeup.

I look back on that day, the first day I ever wore makeup and laugh. It was with that incident that I began to fall in love with makeup. I am a perfectionist and I try to observe and learn everything. When I read magazines I don't just flip past the magazine ads, I look at how the models wear their eyeshadow, eyeliner, how their eyebrows are shaped. With that and hundreds of magazines, books and youtube videos, I have mixed together all the info to get the best out of my makeup. I know I am relatively young and I am still learning but I have a lot to share. I hope that I can share things that will help you make the most out of your beautiful self. Inner beauty is the most important thing and does shine through, but with makeup it can help boost your confidence and let everyone see how beautiful you are; inside and out.
So let your inner beauty shine!
