When Was a Time in Your Life When You Wore a Lot of Makeup?

Me on a typical Thursday back in 2014

I can think of two distinct periods. The first was in high school, when makeup was new to me and I was finally given free reign to wear it in public. Side note, I don’t know if it was just a strict Filipino family thing, but there was an unwritten rule that I was forbidden to wear makeup until I got the go-ahead from my parents, so I’d sneak it on when I was in middle school.

Anywho, I had just turned 14, and I was finally allowed to wear makeup, so I went all in and did the whole kit and caboodle for a day at school — foundation, powder, blush, eyeshadow, lipstick and eyeliner. For some reason my mom wouldn’t allow me to wear mascara though. Weird! I loved it all and relished the fact that I could wear makeup out in the real world. Now that I think about it, though, I had a lot on for such a young person.

About 10 years ago, when I was in the thick of writing for MBB, I did a full-on glam look pretty much every day. It was fun, and looked great in photos, but it was a lot of work. I look back on that period of my life with fondness, though. Dang, I could slay some eyeshadow back then.

When was a time in your life when you wore a lot of makeup?
