Why do you wear Makeup Tag

After seeing this Tag on Marta's Chubby Love Blog, I have decided to do the 'Why do you wear Makeup Tag'.
1) When did you begin to wear makeup?
I didn't start to wear any makeup until I was in Year 11 at school, so I must have been about 15. My friend Laura introduced me to loads of products and I was hooked! I can remember that we used to go to the toilets at school (how classy!) before maths and she would apply different makeup to me. One time she even applied this new 'lip sting' which actually burned! Since then I have really enjoyed putting makeup on and now won't leave the house without it.
2) How do you feel about makeup?
I love makeup! It is such a great invention, in particular Foundation. I just don't know what I would do without it... sounds a little dramatic! I can make you feel great and ready for the day even if you are half asleep! I would never dream of going to work or uni without any on! I like how you can create different look depending on your outfit/how you feel!
3) What do you like about makeup?
I like that you can create different looks depending on what you are doing or where you are going. I also like the fact that makeup gives you confidence and makes you look good and feel great!
4) 3 Holy Grail Products
  • Vaseline- any kind. I love it for my lips and to tame my eyebrows, I also use it to strengthen my eyelashes!
  • Foundation- makes me skin look flawless.
  • Mascara- Gives my eyelashes a good colour and makes them look thicker and longer, in the process making my eyes look bigger AND more importantly making me look awake!!

Champagne Showers

I'm a huge fan of Vaseline and am always excited when a new one comes out! So you can imagine my excitement when the new Vaseline Limited Edition Pink Bubbly Lip Balm was advertised in a magazine.
When I finally got my hands on it on Saturday I was barely out Superdrug when I immediately opened my tin. I think that it is a lot like the Rose Vaseline Lip Balm but there is something about the fact that there is grape extract that makes it oh so appealing!
One of my friends has been using it for a little while as she has had dry lips due to some meds she is using and has given it rave reviews!

It isn't cheap for Vaseline- £3.49 from Superdrug! But I would defiantly recommend it.

Have you tried the new Limited Edition Pink Bubbly Lip Balm?
What do you think about it?

Pink October

As you may well know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Unfortunately Breast Cancer affects so many people including men and the number of people being diagnosed is increasing. However, the good news is that due to targeted treatment, earlier detection and better breast awareness, survival rates are improving.
Breast Cancer UK is a charity that provides both emotional and practical support for anyone affected by Breast Cancer. In order to continue to provide this level of support the charity needs to raise much needed funds. Fortunately there are lots of ways to support the charity including buying some lovely items on the high street.
Marks and Spencer has a really lovely range of items with 10% of each sale goes to     Breast Cancer UK.

Above are just some of the items that Marks and Spencer are selling for Breakthrough Breast cancer but you can shop the range here.

There is a lot more information on the Breast Cancer Website.
