I’ve seen a few people posting about how they used to wear makeup and how they have improved so I thought I’d share with you my makeup journey! I started wearing makeup pretty young. Just foundation mostly. I think I started wearing it at about 13-14, around my first year of high school. This was also kinda when the ~emo~ phase was happening, Myspace was big and I was being picked on by boys for my eyeliner.
My foundation didn’t match, it was too dark and it was warm toned. And I hadn’t been introduced to the wonderful world of contouring so my face looked pretty round.
Two years later, I’d dyed my hair and I was wearing foundation that pretty much matched me. My brows were blonde and my kohl eyeliner was thick and did nothing for my eyes, which happened to be my favourite feature. Still no contouring and no lipstick yet.
Two years later, I did my own makeup for formal. At that time I’d discovered makeup tutorials on youtube and I started making them myself. Contouring still wasn’t part of my face but I’d lost a lot of weight in that year and my cheeks had sunken in quite a lot. You can see that if you compare this photo to a picture of me, recently. I’m 10 kgs heavier now than I was back then!
And this is me now! 3 years since the last photo. I’ve learnt the art of false eyelashes, contouring, foundation matching, eyebrow filling, highlighting, etc.! I’m very happy with how my makeup looks now and I know that I still have a long way to go.
I hope that you’re having a wonderful day!
