'Bloggers Firsts - Beauty Edition' Tag

Hello my lovelies!

I thought I'd treat you all to an extra post this week seeing as you've all been so amazing!

This is a tag that I read on my friend's blog which I thought would be nice to do! As you probably know I normally stay clear from tag posts because I often find them to be annoying and unoriginal but I think this one will be a good little post for you all.

The first brand you found out about due to blogging?
I have only been blogging for a few months myself but have been reading other blogs for years, so if I remember correctly the first brand I found out about was MAC. (which I know is kind of embarrassing seeing as its such a big brand, but it just shows how long I've been reading. I think I actually made the discovery one and a half years ago now!)

The first YouTube tutorial you watched and attempted?
I don't remember what exact tutorial it was but I distinctly remember being about 10 or 11 and sitting down in front of my mirror to try and do a 'night out on the town' look. By that I mean liquid eye-liner with big flicks and smokey eye. To 'create' the look I borrowed my sisters eye-liner and used my terrible eye shadow palette (which I'm 100% sure I got out of a magazine.) As you probably guessed it ended up with me looking like I had two black eyes and somehow I also managed to get the liquid eye-liner in my eye. Brilliant make-up skills 10 year old claire!

The first high end item you brought?
The first high end make-up product I brought was the Nars Sheer Glow foundation. It was actually featured in my 2013 Favourites!

The first product you regret buying?
Batiste dry shampoo. All my friends were raving about it so I bought some, and when I went to use it I found that I was really allergic to it; I broke out into a rash and was sneezing none stop for at least 10 hours!

The first product you repurchased?
I don't often repurchase make-up as I like trying lots of different products but the one product I've stuck with is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. It's still the best concealer I've found!

The first product you reviewed on your blog?
The first post I did that was solely dedicated to one product was my Soap and Glory Heel Genius review.

The first product you bought due to a blogger review?
Mii cosmetics blusher. It was quite pricey but was worth it!

Do you still use any of your first blogger make-up purchases?
I still use my Rimmel Match Perfection foundation and my Collection lasting perfection concealer, but I think I've changed most of the other products.

I tag all of you reading to do this tag, don't forget to leave a link in the comments so I can read it!


  1. I think everyone's first attempt at a makeup tutorial involved smokey eye; and it going horribly wrong! Great post!

    Do you think I should start a blog?
