First EVER Blog Post...

Hello Bloggersphere! This is my first ever blog and the first ever blog post - I'm kinda nervous! This first post is just really for you to know a little bit more about me and what to expect from my blog.

I "discovered" make-up quite late on compared to most of my friends - originally my idea of putting on my make-up was a quick curl of my eyelashes and some clear mascara!! Oddly enough, I felt too insecure to wear much make-up; I didn't want to draw any attention to myself and I didn't want to get it wrong. Don't get me wrong, I don't slap it on now Big Fat Gypsy Wedding style, but I realised in my late teens that it can actually help with your confidence, it's creative, it's fun, it's individual and it's part of who you are. I'm definitely no make-up artist or expert, far from it - I still can't use dark eyeshadows as I end up looking like a drag queen every time!! I'm very pale with blue eyes, so this will affect the types and shades of make-up products I blog about. 

I think I will write a separate, more detailed blog post on my skin history, but in brief I suffered from mild acne throughout my teens, which affected me deeply and unfortunately I still carry some mental scars from this period of my life. My skin is much better now, but it is extremely fussy and still spot prone, so I have to be very careful about what skincare and make-up products I use as the smallest thing can set it off. Therefore this will also affect the sort of products I blog about. 

I decided to set up this blog as a bit of a hobby really, so I can indulge in my love of all things beautilicious. I love reading magazines about new products, new ranges, make-up looks, skincare regimes, product reviews - but I love reading blogs even more, you get that more personal, honest touch from other people just like you, who aren't perfect and airbrushed like in magazines. If just one person gets something out of what I've written that will be more than I hoped for :-)

I think that's pretty much it for now - I don't want to bore anyone's socks off! :p 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and if you have questions at all please ask :-)

Bye for now!
