Beauty Blog Challenge – Day 1

Happy new year everybody. This year is the start of so many opportunities for me, in sha allah (god wills) and I look forward to the good things and the challenges that will be coming my way.

So guys, to get into the hang of blogging more, my little sister gave me the idea to do the 30 day beauty blog challenge. I was gonna try and start on the 1st, but I was too busy doing nothing 😉

So each day I have to complete one of the challenges and upload it. Hopefully I’ll stick by it and upload some new content everyday.

So the first question is:

When did you start putting on makeup?

I started wearing a bit of makeup when I was around 13/14 years old. I wasn’t into makeup that much and to be honest when I look back at the pictures it was quite horrendous. It makes me cringe 😖

No one around me wore makeup when I was growing up, my mum was always natural just with some pencil eye liner on the water line with lipstick when we’d go to weddings and my sister just wore some lipstick and just about drew a line on her eyelids. So I never was that interested into makeup.

Back then I’d wear some eyeliner on my water line, un-blended eyeshadow with some mascara. Lol it was so bad, for real it makes me want to cry. I then got to 16 and started wearing liquid eyeliner. We won’t even discuss the flicks I would attempt.

Then when I was 18 years old, I bought my first Rimmel Foundation. Back in those days they had only a few selections of shades, so women of colour had no choices. I remember I was the second to last dark shade they had. It just about matched me and my neck. Even then I didn’t know how to apply foundation properly 😂

So going back to when I was 22 years old, only did I properly learn and start wearing makeup the right way and know how to have my face on fleek and blend my eyeshadow properly.

I feel like I’m a princess, who don’t need no man and can slay a dragon myself with those fluttery lashes and blended foundation that matches my neck 😉
