Photos!

I have had a few questions about the black and white photo I added to my sidebar and default Twitter pic, so I thought I would do a post on it. These photos were taken by my husband in 2007 for a project at uni.






With regards to hair and make up in these photos, well my hair was just blowdried straight. Makeup - I'm not wearing much, just mascara, cheek stain and lip balm which was basically my makeup routine until a year and a half ago.

I only started wearing foundation because my hormones went bananas and started experimenting with eyeshadow at the same time. So, basically I started wearing a full face of makeup at 23. I was united with mascara and cream blush at about 14.

How old was you when you first started wearing make up?

Great pics!

I didn't start wearing make up until I was about 20. Became a full on beauty addict a few years after that. I love that there's always room to learn new tips and tricks when it comes to make up.

I was 14 when I started - but I just used mascara and blusher. Ahhh... lol xx

Cat said...

Those photos are lovely :-)

I started wearing mascara at about 14-15 and then when I was 16-17 and heading into college I started with a tab of foundation. Have only started playing about with colours and products for the past 18 months really - had a couple of friends in uni who really inspired me to do so.

i wasn't allowed to wear makeup because my school was very strict but i would wear some foundation from virgin vie to cover up any redness and wear kohl eye liner on my water line. On special days I would wear liquid eyeliner on top. (I was 15 then)Now i wear the full works.. but obviously toned down for uni :) I'm 20 now and boy have times changed lol

merhaba,
cok hos fotolar, sanki bir dergide geziniyormusum gibi oldu, sana her iki turlu makyajda yakisiyor yuz hatlarin buna musait, makyaji tasiyabiliyorsun, ama bu resimlerdeki halinle cok dogal ve hos olmussun...Bende kucuk yaslarda makyaja baslamistim ama dogal olarak goz kalemi, rimel, ruj gibi basic seylerle, genc kizlik doneminde cok makyaj kullanmisimdir, suan pek fazla makyaj yapmiyorum benden once esimin tercihi bu, ama yinede rimel, allik ve ruj dan asla vazgecemem.Artik icinde besleyici vitamin, minareller olan fondotenler oldugu icin ve makyaj temizleyicini dogru sectikten sonra cok fazla cilt problemi yasayacagini sanmiyorum.Ustelik sen bu konuda bilincli biri olarak dogru makyaj teknikleri senin icin sorun olmasa gerek diye dusunuyorum.Zaten haftada bir veya iki gun yuzunu makyajsiz dinlendirdikten sonra cilt gozeneklerin hava alacaktir.Sonuc: sen her halinde guzelsin canim...

Wow these photos are stunning!! You're so photogenic!

I started wearing make-up when I was 13. Until puberty struck, I was adamant that I would *never* wear make-up or high heels.. never *ever*. But then I started buying Shout magazine, then Sugar and Bliss... and I was brainwashed into thinking that I needed to wear make-up or no boys would fancy me. Man I loved those magazines!

I mainly used to wear just concealer, eyeshadow and mascara... oh, and I loved nail polish too (but never bother with it anymore). Ahh the good old days of Collection 2000 and Rimmel!

The pics are beautiful! I've been wearing makeup since I was about 15 I think? I had typical teenage skin and it helped to camouflage that a bit.

i LOVE makeup but have only started using products other than mascara and concealer over the past 12 months or so!

You are just so gorgeous Muhsine! I love black and white photos because they are so timeless and elegant.
I have always had a love affair with makeup. I started experimenting at the age of 12! But then I went through an awkward stage(as most of us do) and I stopped for a long time. I wore it, but I wasn't obsessed with it like I am now. I started watching YouTube and reading beauty and fashion blogs about a year ago, and Now my routine is constantly changing and I love it!

you look so pretty, you really have gorgeous features xx

Victoria said...

The last pic is my favourite - so pretty. xx

Kittenish said...

Beautiful! The first and last photos are my favs <3

I love lip gloss and lip balms and stuff; I've used those since I was old enough for Lip Smackers (around 4 or 6 years old). I've worn foundation on and off since I was 14 (because of acne and oily skin), but I've never been consistent about it and I've always used ones like Neutrogena that have good-for-skin ingredients. In the past few months (I'm 26) I've started to try out blush, mascara, eye shadow, and all that stuff, but I don't do anything drastic 'cause I'm still a total newb.

aretha said...

lovely pics! :)

i started experimenting with shadows at around 14-15 and then eyeliner, blush and some mascara but no lippy. i only started wearing a full face when I was 21-22. I am 23 now. :)

Michélle said...

Wow, what gorgeous pictures! I love the last one with only mascara on! ♥

Nina said...

Lovely pictures!

I used only corrector/concealer for a really long time like from when I was 13 to 20. Now I'm 23 I still don't wear full makeup because I never like how it looks (I still haven't found the right products I guess...), but I am using more of the mascara and blush :)

Muhsine said...

Fotolariniz çok güzel *.*
Özellikle en sondakini çok beğendim, çok da güzelsiniz *.*
Ben 14 yaşındayım şu anda,pudra ve göz kalemi vs. kullanıyorum sadece.
Bu arada doğal makyajlar size daha çok yakışıyor :)

DangerouslyBeauty said...

Youre just too gorgeous, I'm sorry :) x

*~Roxy~* said...

I think I first started playing with makeup when I was like, 7 or 8, first was able to wear it outside when I was about 11.

Beautiful photos, you 're such a natural beauty! :)
I 'd have to say that I 've started wearing the first products (concealer and e/s) at some point in high school!
Foundation and the rest were kept for special occasions back then!

STUNNING" Simply gorgeous!!!!

Like you i only started with the foundation and things a year ago before it was all harmless gloss and mascara... and look at us now!!xx

- Kay - said...

wow you look so gorgeous! I would say even better than with makeup, especially since when someone looks at us and we do have the eyeliner and heavy eyeshadow and etc (I hate it but guys have told me this) they assume that you need all that makeup to look decent, and not that it's for fun.
