During the first year of High School, when I moved to another city by myself due to the courses I wanted to take, I started hanging out with this girl called Amber. I had never been much of a makeup girl, mostly because my parents were kind of strict but also because I was more into fashion, but Amber was a pro (according to 16 year old me). She did my makeup all the time when we became best friends, and she even introduced me to Kylie Jenner (I cannot believe how uneducated I was on the social media network back then, haha). Anyway, when we hung out and had sleepovers in the middle of the week almost every week, my brows looked flawless. However, I was just getting started on the whole makeup thing, so I went and bought myself an eyebrow pencil. In about three shades too dark for my naturally strawberry blonde hair...

Whenever Amber wasn't there to help me, I just painted them harshly with the pen as if I was a three year old holding a pen for the first time, and my brows looked horrendous! However, I couldn't see anything wrong with them back then, but now when I look at the old pictures I cannot help but laugh. I had those eyebrows when I met my now domestic partner and three years later we both laugh at how ridiculous (but cute, according to him) it looked! :D

In 8th grade I went tweezer happy and ruined my naturally thick eyebrows. Sophomore year I would use my Too Faced Naked Eye Palette (throw back) and thought I was a pro applying eyeshadows smh. I would also apply black eyeliner on my bottom lid looking like a raccoon. It wasn't until my senior year I learned how important eyebrows were. Of course for a good 2 years I had made them horribly overdrawn. I looked like a hot mess.

In comprehensive school, I had my elmo phase. Thick black eyeliner, under my eye only. Not on the waterline, right under the lash line & super thick (like 5mm thick, no joke).
Literally pure white foundation (cheers Stargazer) slapped all over my face with my fingers.
Dark purple glittery lipstick. No.

All of these mixed together with my super cool emo haircut & unplucked brows? Yeah, I looked FAB.

My first foray into makeup was stage makeup for the ballet when I was in grade school/junior high. So.... when I hit high school and started wearing makeup more regularly for events and such, I always wore really thick, black eyeliner all the way around my eyes, because.... I guess I thought that looked good? Why did no one tell meeeee!

I have fair skin and I used to contour with bronzer. Not just any bronzer, but a shimmery, orangey bronzer, Milani baked bronzer in Soleil. I thought I was SOOOO POPPIN but one day I realized I looked crazy T_T
