I was recently looking through old photographs and couldn't help but laugh at myself and how funny I looked during my younger years, not necessarily my physical appearance, but how I dressed and applied makeup!! I've gone through a lot of different changes throughout the years, and I've experimented a lot with makeup and fashion! I guess I had an idea of what type of clothes looked cool, and what kind of makeup or hairstyles were "in" and even though my mother would tell me something looked ridiculous, I still went forward with it!
Thinking back, my addiction to drugstore beauty items started at a very young age, in fact a lot of makeup brands I use today are brands I actually used when I was younger! I never really wore makeup at a younger age, a lip-gloss here and there, a lot of nail polish, and a TON of sweet tasting chap-sticks is usually what I went for!
The very first makeup brands I remember using when I was younger were:
Wet n Wild
I loved their nail polishes, I remember buying a glitter polish and a clear one to top it off! And even though I always "went outside the lines" I had so much fun playing with WnW polishes! (Which by the way is still one of my favorite cosmetics brand!)
I probably can't count the number of Lip Smackers I had, I wanted all the flavors, and if a new one came out I wanted to try it immediately! I remember going to the local drugstore (believe it was RiteAid) and running to the Bonne Bell section to see if a new Lip Smackers came out that I hadn't tried yet! It never went to waste, I would finish all the Lip Smackers, I carried one with me at all time! This is probably why now days I feel "naked" without any lip products on!
I loved NYC's liquid lip shine, and although their old formula was super sticky I didn't care! Clear and Frosty Pink were my 2 color choices, I remember thinking I was so grown up when I started wearing this...now looking back all I can do is laugh!
I asked a few of my favorite bloggers on twitter what was their 1st makeup brand/product they used and a lot of the same brands came up repeatedly. I receive a lot of responses but below are just a few:
