Awkward Makeup Fails

I don't really remember when I started playing dress up. I wasn't a girly girl as a youngster and as a teenager my only real 'beauty' obsession was my hair. I regularly had my hair coloured, either at home or in a salon from the age of about 12, but makeup? I guess I just wasn't that into it.

I remember a lot of the girls at school wearing makeup on the daily, but honestly, I just wasn't bothered. So many girls my age seemed to be obsessed with mascara and having lashes as black as their bitchy teenage souls, but if my hair was good, I was good.

Infact the first time I remember really being interested in makeup I was 17...Yeah I probably owned little bits before, but it was at 17 I became a regular wearer. My friend Rachael and I became obsessed with these crystal glitter eyeliners from Collection 2000 ( you can still buy them now )..We bought them in every colour and even on really awful days, down days or days where we were doing nothing, our faces sparkled in £2.99 glitter goodness.

I saw this on Facebook. No word of a lie it made my day !!

I may have been late to the game but I think everyone needs to go through that awkward experimental stage.Yet thanks to the likes of youtube most people are skipping it and I really think they're missing out. Now a days 14 year olds walk round looking like mini Kim Kardashians. Contoured up like catwalk models...I mean really??

I'd ask why girls want to grow up so fast, but as a teenager, all I wanted was to be grown up. Now however I'd do anything to go back to the days of such little responsibility.

As a 24 year old, I'll hold my hands up and say Makeup, beauty etc are such a big part of my life. I adore the stuff. I love playing around creating new looks, shopping for new bits and pieces, following trends and I doubt most people will ever see me without my face on.

Yes I still have 'what was I thinking' days, that create amazingly cringe worthy pictures..but thats all part of the fun.

What's been your awkward make up fail??

let me know
