The Power Of Makeup

While this is mostly a 'youtuber' thing to do, I have decided to do it anyway because in my opinion, I think every blogger/youtuber should do.


For me, I don't use makeup every day - but when I do, I really like to go all out with my makeup. I don't feel like I have to go out of the house with a face full of makeup every but then I totally get if someone is wearing full coverage makeup - like, do you boo.

If I think about it, I started wearing makeup 'properly' when I was about 14, but trust me it was not a sight to be seen I would be wearing a bright blue eye shadow and a foundation 3 shades darker than my real skin tone, but everyone needs to go through that stage, right?

So, I have decided to share with you a bare faced selfie of me without ANY makeup or filter and then a selfie with what I would usually wear on a night out.

Hello makeup free me: So, this was literally taken about 5 minutes ago (please excuse the eyebrows) I'd like to think I am confident enough to be able to go out of the house without any makeup on, simply because - I am not put on this earth to impress every single stranger that lays their eyes on me. While I understand other people may like to go out of the house everyday with makeup and thats cool, we aren't here to judge anyone based on just their appearance.

And this is me when I have done my makeup (I'm no makeup artist but I like to think I do a good job sometimes)
These were both taken last night before me and my friends met up to go to the Slug and Lettuce, a bar in town. They have 2 for 1 cocktails YAS!.

I know you probably can't see this well, but I used the Sleek Diamonds In the Rough Palette, the Morphe Palette in 35N the NYX Matte Liquid Liner and the Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara for my eyes. the MAC Soft and Gentle MSF and the MYX Matte Bronzer for highlighting and lightly contouring. Lastly I used the Urban Decay 'De-Slick' Setting spray as I have quite oily skin. Later on however I did apply my lipstick Taupe by Mac.

I know this isn't an extreme makeup look, in some peoples opinion, but for me I spent a lot of time on my eyes haha.

I feel makeup is different for everyone, there are people who have no care for it, have some interest and then those who live and breathe makeup, which both options are fine!! Everyone is different.
