It all started with a tube of lipstick

Welcome to my blog. For my first entry, I will narrate how my passion for beauty products started.

In my adolescent years, I had an awkward teenage phase. I was this chubby girl with frizzy hair and feet that were too big for my height. All things related to beauty were the least of my concerns, since I was into music, food and games. During formal events like weddings, piano recitals and even my grade school graduation, I did not want any trace of makeup on my skin. The only time I remembered putting on a full face of makeup was in grade 6, and we had a school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. To be honest, I think it was someone else who did my makeup.

Upon entering high school, that's when many girls start dabbling with beauty products, becoming more conscious about fashion and trends, not to mention start reading teen magazines. We also had a Personality Development class, that introduced us to a skin care regimen, preparing a vanity kit and how to take care of ourselves. It was also during my early teen years when local teen magazines such as Meg and Candy were first published. While reading these magazines, I felt so grown up. But if there was one item that made me feel so grown, more than anything in the world, it was a tube of lipstick. 

In my next post, I will show you the lipstick shade. I hope you guys stay tuned. :)
