Lust For Gold.

It seems to be a cliche story: a little girl raiding her mother's make-up, drawing lipstick all over her face, mascara on the eye brows. That makes me feel a bit odd... I never did any of those things. I was a bit of a tomboy. I was playing in the puddles after it had rained, covering myself in mud and letting it dry and flake off, climbing trees and riding motorbikes.

Yes, so it seems I'm some sort of outcast in that respect. But my interest in beauty and fashion started to develop once my first real girlfriend introduced me to make-up and how to use it. I'd always had friends that were boys in high school, so when I suddenly had a best friend who was a serious 'girly girl', my whole world expanded.

Most make-up items for me took a really long time to even figure out where it goes. Not until this year did I realise that highlighter, blush and bronzer should all be used at once! Who would've known!?
It took until this year when I turned 19 to use lipstick. I'd steered away for so long because I was scared of using such highly pigmented items on my lips, and so only used lip balms and glosses.

And so now that I've let you all in on a little bit about myself and my introduction to make-up, beauty and all things girly, I think I can probably start going into some more interesting stuff!

Makeup yay!!!

What should I do first though, do you think?
A "what's in my make up bag?", "my collection", "what's in my bag?", or start some reviews of my favourite products?

If you have a favourite that you'd like me to start with, let me know with a comment!

Ciao bella!

Where Does The Lust Start?

Hi there everyone on this beautiful, connecting device known as the internet...

I thought I'd start a nice blog about my transition into womanhood, mainly everything to do with fashion and beauty.

I was never too interested in make up, and I remember the first foundation I ever had. It was a cheap-brand foundation stick. It was tacky, too dark, too heavy...and just made my skin feel so icky. I really did not like it whatsoever...

But...as I've tried new products, tested new things, my skin developing into a less oiled-up mess, I've come to love make-up, clothes, shoes, the LOT. Embracing my skin and my body took time, but finding the right clothes and make-up really wasn't as hard as I first thought.

My collection of beauty items has grown exponentially. I've found YouTube great for beauty tips, and from them have expanded my collection of products even further.
However, I'm still itching to try new (and maybe slightly more expensive) things so that one day, maybe I too can look just as good as Miranda Kerr (if only...).

This new blog of mine will be a collective of different beauty tips and tricks I've learnt, different products I've tried, loved, hated, or still figuring out, and reviews of different products.

I may or may not (whether I can figure out how to use this website properly) upload photos to show you all my wonderful collection of make-up and beauty things that I've collected, and...well...I'll see what happens from there...
