How did you start wearing make-up?

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 had a bit if post postpartum depression. It gave a me an outlet. Now I just love it because I love art and it is a feasible hobby

Re: How did you start wearing make-up?

Oh my...I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you've seeked help for your depression. I've dealt with it a bit too over the past 2 years, but now make-up has made me happier becasue it what I love and I'm sure art will help you conquer your depression. <3

Re: How did you start wearing make-up?

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.

Exactly! That's also my life right there! Smiley Tongue

Re: How did you start wearing make-up?

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! 

Re: How did you start wearing make-up?

My story... so when I was like 10 my mom gave me a Sephora eyeshadow trio and a small brush. That was the first beauty product that I have ever owned (besides like lip balm and stuff like that). I really liked the idea, but I thought it was too much work to put on so it pretty much decayed in my drawer. It wasn't until I was like 13 that I actually wore makeup that I had, and the addiction has grown ever since.

Re: How did you start wearing make-up?

Ohhh yes! Smiley Happy If it's there, you can't get rid of it! It's just too tempting! You want to look and feel good at the same time. 

Re: How did you start wearing make-up?

I actually started for performance purposes. I danced and in annual recitals we would wear makeup. also around 12 years old I got a make up palette from relatives from sephora and just played around with it. still to today I don't wear it 100% but I'm starting to at age 16, 17 in 3 weeks!
