My Beauty History

Today, I wanted to share with you, where I got my love of all things beauty. I was a bit of a late bloomer when it came to makeup and skincare. In my early teens, my mother had heart failure anytime I suggested buying a lip gloss never mind something radical like a foundation. The mammy wouldn't be too pushed on beauty so I grew up not really knowing anything about it.
When I turned 15,I branched out a little more and bought foundation, mascara,eyeliner and eye shadow. Having not grown up in a house full of beauty products, I wasn't particular bothered, sure I wore makeup but I didn't really have any passion for it.
Then one day, when I was 18,that all changed. I was working in Roches Stores at the time and a new Makeup Studio opened up. I immediately fell in love, I'm not sure if it was the bright lights or seeing all the makeup on display but I was hooked. To this day, I still get a thrill walking through the beauty halls.
I befriended the makeup artist who was looking after the studio, she would do my makeup and try out different looks on me. I begged my manager to transfer me to the studio, when the part timer left. Luckily she agreed and off I went for my makeup training.
If I had a love before the training it got stronger afterwards. There was just something fascinating learning how products worked and getting to swatch them.
Once my training was complete, I moved on from Roches and started working in pharmacy. Here I got to learn about skincare and another love was born. If what ticks behind makeup was exciting, I don't have a word for how much I loved learning about the different brands and what different products did.
Over the years, I've learnt about some great products and then I decided to set up a blog where I could share my passion and meet like minded people. Don't get me wrong, my friends and some family like beauty but on one side they think I'm barmy for loving it so much.
I think some people have the opinion that beauty and makeup aren't that interesting but once I pass on my few tips, that quickly changes.
What's your Beauty History?
