maybe a change would keep me high, stop me thinking and wondering why.


Lately, I have given a great deal of thought to why I love makeup.

It wasn't always this way - I hid away in boys clothes and was too embarrassed to wear any makeup at all. Once that started to change, I dove headfirst into my love for fashion and beauty, and haven't looked back since.

I find the process of getting ready electrifying. There is satisfaction in getting a look just right. It still amazes me that makeup can reflect the way I feel on a given day. I feel that makeup gives me the confidence to be my best self. I wear makeup because I love it. I wear for me.

Makeup is an art that I fall more in love with, with every passing day.

So, that is why I wear makeup. Why do you wear makeup? When did you become interested in makeup, fashion, and beauty?

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

  11. Personally, I don't really use a lot of makeup but I definitely can not stay away from lip gloss and some occasional powder. I probably started about 5years ago and I think it does give you some comfort in that zone... if you know what I mean...
    Great post... Very interactive!

  18. That post made me think the reason why I'm not wearing make up..
    mainly due to my inability to do it..and thats why I rarely wear make up on my posts..:(

  20. I love makeup but never wear it! something about putting it on just takes too much time and im lazy!

  21. I really do believe that makeup is art. It may not be art in the traditional sense, but it's still artistic to apply makeup every day.

  26. Thanks for your comment on my blog, I love Rimmel London products :) I started using makeup when I was in primary school, but I didn't use very much. Whereas now I have a beauty routine in the morning and looks that I love wearing for different occasions :) Right now I love pink lips with a smoky eye :)

  30. I think since I was a child, I've always loved make up! ;)

  31. I agree with you - makeup and fashion itself is art, every beautiful & stylish look is like a painting! That's why the streetstyle is so popular I think. Looking through The Sartorialist or Stockholm Street Style is like going to a museum to enjoy beautiful art of painting

  36. such a great reason and sometimes i wish i was more confident to really wear make up. I don't wear any on a day to day basis and the most i'll do is mascara and blush if i'm going to dinner

  38. i love makeup, but i really suck at it.... i don't know what's the deal, but every time i wear it, i feel like i'm getting so old! kind of depressing. this is a fab post, and it kind of lifted my spirits a little. :)

  39. I like makeup because it gives us control over the way we look - sultry, sweety, natural. We can do almost anything!
