hmm my mom did not want me in makeup too early so i think started wearing it when i was 15. and boy did i not put it on right. i cant remember if my mom even tried to teach me how to put it on..i would mess up my lipstick..i would not reapply it the right way after a meal lol oh god..it would smear a bit. and dont make me start on the eyeshadow mistakes!! i wish i figured out about concealer then !!
i learned by magazines..books and sadly it took til youtube to figure out more things.
I started to wear make-up when I began my college studies, at the age of 19. Before that I wasn't really interested in painting my face. Now three years later I'm such a make-up junkie I don't wear it every day, though, sometimes I like to go without.
Can we dance like everything's alright?
Can we trade the day in for the night?
15, if I can remember correctly. The farthest I'd get to anything makeup related was lip balm and gloss, otherwise I was never really fond of any of it. I'm still a little bit close minded to makeup though - still never wear eyeliner, unless it's for something particularly special
I started wearing concealer when i was 11 because i got terrible acne.. and i wore those lipglosses you get free with teen mags lol.
Then when i was 14 i started wearing mascara.. then soon after that i started wearing eyeliner.
Around when I was 12 or 13 I began experimenting, hitting a horrible face from 13-15 where I went way too wild and then did the opposite for years to make up for it. I actually gave a presentation to my mom about why I should be allowed to wear makeup. I remember it being a huge deal to me.
I was 16 when I wore makeup first time. I had had this fight with one of my friends and I wanted to look better than her next time I saw her. I still don't wear makeup on daily basics, only in special occasions. I just never can make it look the way I want it to look, so I just can't be bothered.
I try to think that strangers don't have time to care how I look, friends know me good enough to know how bad I can look and myself don't care how I look.
i started using makeup in the past year, actually. i'm 19, and i'd never really caught on to the whole makeup business. i was a tomboy, so i didn't play in mummy's makeup or her closet. i can't even put it on properly myself! ..i'm learning, though, slowly but surely.
i started wearing make-up when i was about 13, the odd bit of eyeliner and concealer, though it wasn't until i was about 14 i properly started having a daily make-up routine. i think this whole thread really raises the issue of whether we should have been this young believing make-up was a necessity - i'm not sure i want to know how young girls are now starting out with make-up considering how quickly society is developing.
