Why I love makeup...


It's a bit of a different post today. I felt like I should give you a bit of an insight into my passion of beauty. 

Not many people understand why I love all things beauty related, so I thought I would address the topic, and have a little chat/ramble about it.

Makeup isn't a way to mask your natural features or beauty. It's not a way to make yourself into someone you're not, look like someone you're not. To me, it's a way to enhance natural features, make yourself feel good no matter how much of it you want to put on. And let's face it, there are so many incredible things makeup can do and I love discovering new things, learning new techniques and also being introduced to new brands, new types of products, and when there's new launches I am all over them.

So why all the other beauty stuff? Well makeup doesn't look good on poorly looked after skin now does it? You have flakey patches on your skin and no matter what foundation you apply its never going to look how you want. You have super oily skin and there's not enough powder in the world to keep that under wraps. Skincare has become a topic that I've really enjoyed learning about including different skin types, what products are best for your skin, skincare ingredients and all that jazz. 

I don't discriminate against drugstore or high end brands, I use them all and love them all. I love collecting beauty products, especially makeup. Organising it, switching it around is just heavenly to me and trying new trends and techniques brings me joy. There's just something about sitting down at my dressing table in the morning and putting on my skincare and then makeup and doing my hair. It doesn't feel like a chore, it feels like a hobby, but then to be able to write about it is just incredible.

I hope you liked this ramble/insight/chat and I feel free to let me know why you love makeup in the comments below.
