February Blog Challenge – Day Thirteen

~~Whats In Your Make-up Bag~~

I LUUURV make-up. I have a lot of it and I love experimenting with it.
I used to play with my make-up on my sisters faces, trying out all kinds of looks I found in magazines. The first time I was asked to do someone else’s make up was when my cousin made it to the final round of our high school beauty pageant and I absolutely LOVED it! I made up both my sisters and my aunt on their wedding days, and I have made up several ladies for matric dances and year end functions.
Here I am, made up for a party where I had to dress up as a drag queen (I had been allocated Priscilla, Queen of the Desert as my costume). This look took me close to two hours to complete on myself…

The kind of drag queen look that I loosely based my party make-up on

I have everything from false eyelashes to body glitter and a special collection of brushes.
In the following picture I have put my three bags of makeup into one collection, not including my nail polishes. I have one small, leopard-print bag that is always close at hand, containing the black eyeliner, mascara and foundation I use most often. I have another one containing all my pencils and mascaras, and then the pink vanity bag containing all my shadows, blush and brushes.

  1. Make up has been a fairly recent discovery for me – I don’t think I’d ever bought myself any until 2006…
    Now, I have a few basics and I like to keep the look fairly neutral or else very classic. Haven’t had the time or money to experiment much… :-/
