My Makeup Opinion.


Makeup YOUR mind

Over the years..

Over the years I've gone through some crazy makeup trends. I wasn't allowed to start wearing makeup until 8th grade, and once I began I couldn't stop. I went from simple to extreme, and no one told me how outrageous I was, not even my parents, they supported my funky fads. Now I look back at my photos and realize how much my makeup skills have developed and also appreciate how creative I was when I was younger.

This is me around the time I started dying my hair and wearing makeup, very deep liner and pale lips: (around age 17) Here I was around 18, very gothic look, but I was an angel for Halloween: This was my everyday look for awhile (around age 19):

Still around 19, I did many rainbow eyeshadows (NYE shadows were my fav at the time):
I was 20 in this picture, very into the Gwen Stefani look: This is when my hair began to fry due to way too much flat iron and bleach, was very into pastel eyeshadows. I also ODed on self tanner this summer: (age: 21)

I dyed my hair darker because it was so fried, but kept my bangs blonde. Still stayed with pink light eyeshadows: This is me now, way more natural then I used to be, but I miss my creative-ness and ballsi-ness to wear anything outside and not be scared what others would think. I no longer dye my hair and have grown out my natural dirty blonde hair. I miss my funky colored highlights somtimes, but my hair has never been healthier. We all go through our many phases and one day we all look back and think "wow, I miss that" or "What was I thinking!" haha.
Out of all my phases my bleach blonde hair and rainbow eyes are definitely my most missed moments.
What was your favorite phase you went through?
Post your makeup/hair phases on your blog too! Tag your turn ;)

Hint for contest: I love to "play"


  1. Nice to look back at old pictures. I think most of us went through that phase. Mine was dying my hair every month phase. I don't have the pictures to show you. But I did old party pictures post. Feel free to check it out.


  2. You look a LOT like gwen in that picture!! x

  3. Its good to look back its funny how we all change so much. I think most of us look a lot better now than when we were younger xx

  4. That Gwen picture looks like an exact replica lol. You did go through a lot of looks, and in every one of them you looked different. I don't have many different looks, the only thing that ever changed about me was my hair cut and my weight lol.

  5. @Nur Kisskat: Yes taking a stroll down memory lane is always fun! I'll have to check it out ;)

    @Ariel: I wish! I loved her for awhile. I'd say my new idol is Drew Barrymore as a covergirl, she looks gorge!

    nicoletta: I hope I look better now. I'm growing up so I feel I have to wear less makeup. Save the rouge and messy dark lips for when I'm 60 lol.

    liptontee: Thanks!! I love her! Well you look great now! Did you find the Diet Season emails helpful?
