I am now awarding this award to Lovely Angel of angeleyez1984.blogspot.com. I am supposed to leave a comment so she knows, but I'm hoping she is reading this right now because I can't leave comments on her page and have no other way of contacting her! I've been wanting to comment for awhile now but haven't been able to. I hope you get this, Lovely Angel!

No amount of make up will cover up those damn pimples! You can see them in the photos, even though I was wearing concealer and foundation. Hmm. Time to switch to something more heavy duty, I think! In the last photo you gotta love my big old shnoz!! I hate my nose, it's one of my worst features. Anyway, enjoy the photos! There's more photos to come, as I have two more contests I'd like to enter, so stay tuned for those...

I like it enough. I wouldn't use it for night time though. It's strictly a day product for me. You get nice, good natural eyes with this, and the colour blends seemlessly into each other as well as compliment one another. In the photos it doesn't look like much and you can't really tell I'm wearing eyeshadow but I'm going to post them anyway! The last photo was taken with light.

Make up was the last thing on my mind back in the days. You see, I was a new mum at 18 and I had a baby to care for. It's not that I didn't care about how I looked, it was just not so important for me to look my best. A baby will not love you more if you look hot. So I was always presentable, but not done up. I hardly went out anyway, so it didn't really matter how I looked. As long as I took care of my son as best as I could, I was happy with myself.
As my son got older I went out more and more. But like I said, I'd go clubbing with just lipgloss and eyeliner, thinking I looked fine. And I did. Everybody told me I looked great, regardless of my lack of made up face. So I just stuck with my natural beauty. It's so much simpler!
Fast forward to 2008. Slowly I was being more exposed to make up: my previous job, my love for magazines, celebs on TV, and even my sister. I was expecting my second baby and rather bored with daily life, so I started occupying myself by planning my outfits for outtings and how much make up I'd wear. It soon became an obsession and to this day, I'm hooked. Basically, I just want to make sure I look my best when I'm out in the real world!
So I'm going to start blogging about it all- my outfits, my make up, my body, everything. It doesn't matter if nobody reads this. My objective is to put it all out there so that one day, when I'm 65, I can look back and and say "ahh, the good old days!"
