How did you start wearing make-up?

[ Edited ]

I am always curious to how people start wearing make-up and what influenced them to get into all of this beauty craziness. I, for one, wore make-up when I was 12, about 4 years ago. I wore it to my grade 8 grad. And I never really stopped since. I dealt with a bit of self-esteem issues and I used make-up to cover myself up (literally!). But now I feel better about myself and I just experiment and pamper myself with make-up. And just this year...I joined the Sephora family. What's your story? Smiley Happy

I hear you on that. I don't think I had/have PPD, but earlier this year I hit a low with my post-baby appearance, and my renewed obsession with beauty products has both helped my self-esteem and given me an outlet. Probably an element of retail therapy in there, too. Smiley Happy

Reatil therapy is my therapy. Smiley Happy I will be super upset if I don't purchase a thing after 3 hours in the mall!

Thank you for saying that Smiley Happy. Yes the depression is better. It is so funny how I spent the first three decades of my life without makeup. Now I can't seem to get through a day without looking at/applying/reading about/ or buying it.
