Why do you wear make-up?

The lovely Anna of ViviannaDoesMakeup posted a video recently talking all about her history with make-up and why she wears it. I thought it was a really interesting TAG and doing it myself gave me a chance to question why it is that I got into this crazy beauty world. I tag anyone that wants to add their two cents, so please comment with a link to your post if you do! I would love to read it.

1. When did you begin loving make-up? As a teenager with bad skin, I remember loading on the high-coverage foundations to boost my confidence. However, I wouldn't have said that I was particularly 'into make-up', but after a slightly better looking me. It wasn't until I discovered the youtube and blogging beauty realm in 2008 or so that I really jumped in head first and fell in love. I thought it was incredible that you could learn the tricks of the trade from some of the best artists out there whilst sat in your own home! I've never looked back since.

2. How do you feel without make-up? To be honest, ever since my skin cleared up after taking Accutane when I was 17, I wasn't too fussed about going out and about bare-faced. I'm very outdoorsy and quite often make-up is the last thing on my mind if I'm going out for a hike or swim. Having said that, if I'm doing normal people things for the day, my make-up is entirely dependent on my mood and I can be just as likely to rock a red lip as I can no makeup-makeup! It is art for the face and definite self-expression.

3. What do you like about make-up? I like that it boosts confidence, expresses your mood and sense of personal style and can transform the face. But probably what I like most is that it provides me with a creative outlet, which was particularly wonderful whilst studying science everyday at university!
