    at 11 (7th grade) i wore eyeliner and mascara and blush and some sort of shiny lip gloss...usually flavoured...watermelon or cherry...
    then i moved up to full on eyeshadow and coloured mascara...usually royal blue or purple mascara...and several shades of purple shadow...

    i also went through a phase in the 90's of perfectly lining my lips and wearing dark lipstick at all times...

    now i barely wear any...just blush , blk mascara and clear gloss...if i'm feeling fancy i'll use a tinted moisturizer and a tinted gloss...

    I wore a tiny bit (when I could be bothered putting it on) when I was 11.

    Though I started wearing it properly when I was about 15

    i've only really ever wore eyeliner which i've been wearing since i was in about 6th grade. i absolutely can't stand foundation or powder and my lips are too dark naturally for lipstick.

    Around 14,13 I would wear a light amount of makeup. Mascara, concealer and thats about it... 15 is when i started to use eyeliner, eyelash curler, eye shadow and all that. I had this one period where I put alot of make up on, (probably because I was really insecure during that time) but now I don't put as much on like I used to, because I'm way too lazy. These days I only mascara, eyeliner, concealer and occasional eyeshadow.

    I started wearing makeup when I was 12 and used to go to raves, it was awful clown-ish makeup (blue lipgloss with glitter on it and blue eyeshadow:doh: :shock: :lol:) and I'd wear it only on weekends..i'd go straight from the shower to school.
    I started wearing makeup for real the first time I got dropped out of school and got a job in an office..it was just as boring as it is now (lipgloss, light blush, mascara and foundation). oh and I was 14.

    clear mascara, nail polish, lipgloss and powder at about 10 !! lol i was an early starter the ironic thing is though i look realy young now i still look about 13 even though im nearly 16. I started wearing nail polish at about 6 or 7. I wore make up on special occasions from about 7 but i wore make up properly from about 13 (by that i mean full make up foundation, eyeliner etc.)

    My 'problem' (so they say...) began at 12 after light experimentation and developed into a full-fledged addiction within the following year.

    I was 15 when I was first allowed to wear tinted lipgloss and mascara. And at 27, that still all the more I usually wear. I was allowed to wear more when I was 16, but was generally too lazy to go whole hog with it.

    i started around 12 or 11, that was practically anything and everything (except blush and foundation.) I became really into it then a yr later i realized how much trouble it was, so now i dont wear any except my acne cream and moisturizer.

    i went to an all-girls high-school that ran pretty much like a convent = super duper strict. One could get suspended for even wearing clear nailpolish.

    i always loved playing with makeup, and started wearing a little eyeliner when i was about 11 or so, on weekends when i went to the mall.

    At 16 came to Canada and went to a regular high-school, so i stepped it up a notch, wearing coloured lipgloss, peach blush and some more eyeliner. Sometimes wore tinted moisturizer.

    Didn't start wearing foundation until age 21, when i had a horrible allergic reaction to sunscreen.

    Now: full-on coverage and colour. lawdy.

    I was attracted to nail polish, got my hands on it when reaching 11.
    Then, I painted my lips red only at home at age 13. But really wore it since 16.
    Even now I don't wear make up very often..(either I forget or I don't remember or I'm not in the mood)

    god this thread has brought it all back!

    i must admit i used to cake the stuff on when i was younger it was so awful. i cant actually believe it was possible to get that much make-up on my face. i must have looked terrible!:doh:

    think i might just sit and cry thinking about it:cry:

    i dont wear that much now compared to then but i have got the whole eyeliner addiction going on. a firm believer i am that mainly only young people can get away with very dark eye make-up im going through the phase of doing it as much as i can so its not too late and regret not doing it if that makes any sense at all!:flower:
