When I was a teenager, young, shy and without any kind of self confidence...
Ok let's write this again.
When I was 14, six whole years ago!, I just didn't like myself.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not madly in love with the way I look now.
But years, experiences and a couple of special words helped me to appreciate what I have.
Make up, while not being the most important thing in my life, helps me accept my appearance, highlighting my best features and hiding my flaws.

Back to the post.
Like I already told you, 14 was a critical age for me.
My mum made me a gift, a make up lesson.
She knew how I felt about myself, every insecurity I had.
She didn't want me to start to wear tons of makeup, she didn't want me to be somebody else.
But she knew that a little bit of mascara and some lipgloss could give me a boost of confidence.
Of that very special hour of lesson I remember just a couple of things:

- The lady that gave me that lesson was beautiful.
She didn't have perfect features, she didn't have the perfect body, she wasn't dressed in the latest fashion trend.
She was herself, happy in her skin.

-Make up makes you feel good.
The scent of it, the colors, the packaging.
Toys for women.

One of the  products I bought that day, along with a brown eyeshadow, a mascara and a nude lipgloss, was a Dior powder.
I recently found it in a old make up bag.
I've been using it a couple of times since I've re found it.
It's the Artistic Bronze shade, a blusher and highlighter in one, with a really soft texture.


What's your first makeup related memory?

With love,
