Why Do I Wear Makeup TAG

Well my beauties! I've been Tagged by the lovely Sophie at Born To Buy to do the Why Do I Wear Makeup TAG. Personally, I love participating in a good tag, so I was so excited to be Tagged by Soph.

This is only a short tag, just four questions in total, but it's pretty interesting. I really love it because it gives you a bit more of an insight in to me and, most importantly, my OBSESSION with makeup.

1. When did you begin loving make up?
It’s difficult for me to pinpoint the exact moment that my love affair with makeup began. I guess that as a teenager I was always interested in makeup… constantly swatching products when I would go shopping with my mum. I have always enjoyed putting on makeup for a special occasion, but that was kind of the extent of it. If I am to be completely honest my real ‘obsession’ with makeup began only a couple of short years ago, when I began to watch YouTube videos. I was going through a particularly challenging time in my life and watching YouTube became an escape from my life. It all began with a few How To videos for hair looks and from there I discovered the incredible and captivating would of Beauty Gurus. Now, at this time in my life, I was feeling particularly low. I had very little self confidence, I really disliked myself a LOT and I was not enjoying life. A makeup tutorial video by the lovely TiffanyD appeared in my suggestion box and that was it… I WAS HOOKED. Makeup became my obsession and once again my life had meaning again. I finally had a hobby, a passion, a creative outlook and I haven’t looked back. My obsession has led me to this whole other world of blogging and vlogging; it has bought me so much joy and happiness and I have ‘met’ some truly remarkable people. Makeup has opened my eyes to a world of beauty and for that I am eternally grateful.

2. How do you feel without make up?

Honestly, these days I actually feel completely confident and content with or without makeup. As my love of makeup has blossomed so too has my appreciation for natural beauty. That’s a big part of the reason why I started EsteemBeautyxo. I believe that beauty radiates from within, and it is through the use of makeup that one’s true beauty can be enhanced. So, my love of makeup has enabled me to develop the confidence to be comfortable in my own skin. Don’t get me wrong, I love to wear makeup… and there’s a lot to be said for the added confidence boost that the perfect red lippy can provide, but ultimately, I now feel gorgeous in my own skin. I am proud to rock a naked face… I have discovered Esteem Beauty, a certain kind of self confidence that can only exist once you have learned to truly love yourself, inside and out.

3. What do you like about make up?

I love how makeup can enhance your natural beauty and increase your self confidence. The perfect foundation, lipstick or eye shadow (Yes! I’m talking about you Cappuccino, Please!), has the power to make you feel on top of the world… and like you can achieve anything. Makeup makes you feel beautiful, and after a while you believe your beautiful, with or without that killer red lip. Makeup has transformed the way I see myself and more importantly, the way I feel about myself. I also LOVE that you can be so creative with makeup. I am an artist with a gorgeous blank canvas to create the perfect masterpiece. I can literally spend HOURS experimenting with new products and playing around with new looks. It’s the perfect way for me to escape from the reality of life in to my own private nirvana. Makeup brings me such joy and happiness… not to mention that excited-giddy feeling in your stomach when you discover that amazing new product that just might change your life!

4. List three 'Holy Grail' items
Garnier BB Cream for Oily/Combination Skin
You know I love it, I’ve harped on about it until I’m blue in the face. If you haven’t yet tried it, YOU NEED TO!! I love it, it’s my holy grail… enough said.

Essence Eye Shadow in Cappuccino, Please!
DOMMsmiles introduced me to this little pocket rocket and it has changed my life… I actually use this Every. Single. Day. No exceptions. It’s just the perfect colour… ideal for highlighting or great as a base to aid blending. It’s an exceptional product and it’s a steal at under 4 bucks!!

Essence Lip Liner in #11 In The Nude
This is the perfect Nude colour for my lips and I adore it! I reach for this too often, seriously, I’m already on my second… but at $1.99 a pop it’s a love affair I can afford to keep. The formula is so creamy, it glides over my puckers like a dream. This is a MUST for every girl, you can’t live without it. Do yourself a favour and pick on up next time your at Target or Priceline… your lips will thank you for it.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this TAG!! Sorry I have been MIA. I have started a new job and uni has gone back (third year!! OMG I can’t believe it). I am trying to get back on top of everything and get in to a bit of a routine! In the meantime, please check out my Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube… You can keep up to date with me there.. if you want to!!

Remember… Beauty shines from within…
