Why Do You Wear Makeup | Tag - Beauty With Lily

Why Do You Wear Makeup | Tag

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Who loves tags!? I know I do and I am so glad Hope from Beauty & Bliss tagged me to do the Why Do You Wear Makeup? Tag.
If you haven't checked out Hope's blog, please do so. She is such a sweet girl and has some great blog posts.

1. When did you begin loving makeup?
-I remember being so excited walking out of a store because my parents would buy me a lipstick--a Lip Smacker--as a young girl. I had little Caboodles full of Lip Smackers and nail polishes. So I've loved makeup since I was a little girl, but a few years ago, my love for it grew more.

2. How do you feel without makeup?
-I hated walking out the door without makeup on, actually I didn't walk out the door if I wasn't wearing a full face of makeup, ever. Just recently, I have grown to accept the fact that I don't always have to have makeup on. However, I do feel better with it on, it's a bit of a confidence boost.
The one thing I hate most is when people ask me, "what's wrong" or "are you sick" after seeing me without any makeup on....geez, well thanks!!

3. What do you like about makeup?
 I like that you can completely transform yourself, if you want, and I like how it makes me feel.
As a makeup fanatic, I really like playing with makeup and creating new looks. You can have round big eyes one day, or almond shaped eyes the next. It's all in how you use your makeup.

4. Three holy grain items:
 L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes
MAC ProLongwear Concealer
I Tag The Following Beauties:
Maya from Big Beauty Bag
Loren from Minkys
 And I tag anyone who hasn't done this tag! :)

Thanks for reading, until next time beauties!

xoxo, Lily

  7. Great tag post!! I still get kinda self-conscious when I go out without makeup on or my hair done. I don't like that it's a big deal and it shouldn't be.
    I want to try the mac prolong wear concealer or a makeup forever concealer!!


  8. You are so right, we all look kinda sick, especially if we do not wear Mascara, right? I mean without Mascara I do not recognize myself! Haha, loved reading your answers! I just did this tag too, XOXO, Sissi

  9. I love reading these tags! I look slightly ill when I don't wear make-up, and even if I just wear a little tinted moisturiser, concealer and mascara I feel so much better in myself.. x

  10. Thank you for tagging me Lily! I'm going to do this post as soon as I have time :) Haha, I LOOOOVED Lipsmackers when I was young and we could never get them in South Africa until a few years ago. I would buy international magazines just to see the Lipsmacker adverts and I would just stare at the adverts (my dad thought I was crazy!) Then the day they arrived in South Africa, my dad took me to the shops (a far far far drive of about an hour - again my dad thought I was crazy but he still took me!) and I bought nearly all of them. Haha I was obsessed with lipsmackers! I'm so glad to see you were too :) haha xxx <3
