The make-up world (scary)

Is it just me ?

Recently I have started to care just a little bit more about how I look make-up wise, honestly I don’t wear allot of make-up mainly because I wouldn't know what to do with it what so ever, occasionally ill attempt to do my eyes up a little when I am going out for a meal or a night out. The simple eyeliner, mascara and maybe eye shadow if I’m in a “good mood”.
So when it comes to any other time of the day that is not a night out or a meal out natural/not really bothered is my style, and really there is nothing wrong with that I've learnt as long as you look after your skin like using facial scrubs and moisturise your skin will be happy without make-up. J

Benefit they're Real, Maxfactor kohl pencil in black, Umberto Giannini painted lady in lady Ophelia

No I’m talking about primers, concealers, bb creams, foundations, powders, blusher, bronzer, eye shadow primer, eye shadow, cream eye shadow, mascara, eyeliner, liquid eyeliner, lip liners, lipsticks, lip tints and then all the different brushes and other applicators.............................anything else I missed? (NO CLUE!!)

So for those of you like me that have no to little idea about the make-up world (which is probably not many of you), but what to start getting up to date and in the know about the big wide world of the make-up brands because there are tons of them (not going to try and name them all obvs) but a few of my faves are Barry M, Benefit, Collection and max factor. Honestly you’re going to feel a little over whelmed by just how big of ‘a deal it all is. Tv, magazines, adverts and films, make-up is everywhere and you can become very lost in a world of obsession of having all the new and latest products of all the well known and big make-up brands.

I am by no means a make-up expert and this is by no means a advice blog so please don't take what I say as advice :) I just simply want to voice my voice <3

The only thing I maintain is my hair because the length of it and my eyebrows because I decided to pluck them myself about two years ago. In fact I only started wearing make-up about three years ago (maybe more), that would make me 18 maybe 17 :s is that bad?

When I started I didn't really know where to begin and at the late age I was most girls already wore make-up in school, which made it harder because I had no clue how they knew what to do with (not having a big sister didn't help). The first thing I learnt how to use was eyeliner and lots of it apparently :s

sorry about bad quality couldn't find any good pics of me back then
 My first ever product was Maxfactor kohl pencil eye liner which I still use today. I then took a daring move and brought some drugstore own foundation and blusher (BIG MISTAKE!!) I tried them out the same day and I looked offal (what a waste) so with that I never used them again. The next thing to happen, for my birthday I asked for a make-up trunk to carry the very little make-up I had built up and as a bonus or so I thought the trunk was filled with unbranded simple make-up (wish is hadn't  as surprise I decided to try it on ..............another mistake of mine! Let’s just say none if it was used again! J

Which brings us to the now “yeey”J where I am taking it much more seriously but still having fun. I am finding the best way to find products that I like is to buy and try which works because most of the product I use now I had no idea if they were going to be good when I brought them, I have also been watching allot of beauty gurus on You Tube like “Zoella” and “Tanya burr” and also the lovely “Bubzbeauty” Love love love go check them out ;)

All I'm trying to say is, it's scary (or maybe it's just me?)

<3 thanks for reading.
