  • Nicole

    my first makeup memory was simply lipstick. i always pretended to be a tomboy growing up, and hid the fact that i was girly at times. i found my mothers lipstick and put it on, only to find it extremely difficult to wash off. I ended up using a lot of strength to wash the lipstick off, but when I put it on it felt really nice heh.

  • Kim T Anderson

    One of my first memories of messing with makeup was sneaking into my niece’s (yes, I said niece’s- I’m the youngest of 7 kids. I was an aunt 7 times over before I was even thought of) makeup bag and her yelling at me about it. I learned real quick right then that women are serious about their makeup! Thanks for the giveaway. Good luck everyone!

No one ever noticed lol.

  • Spa Mm

    I was five and found my grandma’s red lipstick – it ended up all over my face!

  • Deb8226

    I remember my cousin giving me a shoe box full of makeup and i was in love with it!

  • Fazzy

    This is kind of embarrassing but funny; so when I was around 8-10 yrs old, my friend who was 4 years older than me left her liquid eyeliner down my house. I wasn’t sure what it was back then so I drew a moustache on my face with it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Lord knows why

  • latanya t

  • Amanda Goodwin

    my sister’s makeup, she was 16, I was 6 and noooo she wasn’t happy when I got done

  • Hunter Lily Reynolds

    I used to think I was quite good at makeup around grade 7-8 because I was the only girl wearing it. I used to get compliments from other girls, but just as many odd looks. Looking back on it now I see that the $2 neon, orange, cream-to-powder foundation might not have been the best for my dry patchy skin. I used to combine it with a beautiful raccoon eyeliner though, no mascara, so it balances out.

    When I was in middle school I would sneak an entire pouch of makeup to school with me eachday and I would pile this horrible orange Merle Norman foundation on my face. That stopped real quick when my mom showed up to my school and made me wash my face off in the bathroom,lol.

  • Gwendolyn J

    I once shaved my brows in high school I had to draw brows and it was bad..

  • Petra Kos

    I don’t remember it, but my mum told me a story about my “lipstick disaster” – I was 2, and while my mum was sleeping, I took a lipstick from her bag. I drew a real masterpiece with it all over the curtains, blankets and pillows ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Marilena Kat

    My first make up memory was at the age of ten, I used to find lipsticks of my mother and putting them definitely like a Joker !!!

  • coman.ella

    Some memories are only fun if enough time has passes since they happened ๐Ÿ™‚
    I do remember getting ready for work one morning with not enough hours of actually sleep the night before. It took a friend at work to point out I had only put makeup on one eye and left the other one bare. Not my finest moment ever ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Maria Stanica

    I bought an elf liquid eyeliner (my first liquid eyeliner ever). While I was applying it with a friend, I got a drop of the black liquid into my eye, and the white part of my eye turned black and my eye started crying black tears. It was so funny, but in the moment I was horrified!

  • Jade

    A couple years back, I was wearing green lipstick for St. Patrick’s Day, and no one bothered to tell me that some of it got on my teeth. Apparently it looked like salad and everyone assumed it was tightly wedged in my teeth, and I wouldn’t be able to get it out. Why did no one realize it was my lipstick. It was on my lips.

  • Dagmar

    My first makeup memory is borrowing some of my moms expensive makeup and getting in trouble for using it! lol

  • bookloon

    My worse make-up mistake in memory was using waaaay tooo much blush. My parents thought there was something wrong with my skin when they first saw me.

  • Tracee McCallum

    I spent ages making my eyes look flawless and then would be too late to pay the same attention to my lips so I’d just slap on whatever gloss I had on hand

    GLITTER EYE-LINER! When I was in high-school, my friends and I went through a faze of putting this into our water lines! Seriously, what were we thinking! lol

  • Carolynn

    My first makeup experience is during 6th grade. I had found out about BB cream and decided to use it. But I had no idea that it came in colors!LOL and for a few months I thought I looked good and confident. Until one day, my crush during that time asked if something was wrong with my face. When I finally found out what I did wrong, I was on the floor laughing so hard! The cream wasn’t even blended, LOL. Smh ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Nerea

    My first makeup memory is about the makeup of my Barbies: I changed their look every day ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Barbora Prikrylovรก

    I live in Slovakia and it’s really challenging to find a makeup, powder, foundation or pretty much anything in the right skin tone, because most of the brands we have here have like 3 shades and all useto be pretty dark (even though the brand itself has like 10 different shades, in the drugstores here you can only find 3). And so when I was like 14 I really wanted to start using makeup so I went and bought a powder, I had basically no idea how to use makeup properly so I just used corrector and put powder over it and for a couple of months I used to go to school with orange face and white neck, until one of my classmates told me it looked ridiculous.

  • sassy

    I always loved makeup-my mom says that she would give me her makeup bag & I would play hours with everything inside & I never broke or damaged anything ๐Ÿ™‚ #funtimes And my first luxury buy was Versace lipgloss (pale pink with silver sparkle)

  • Anastasiya

    I remember my first luxury buy – it was ysl powder ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Andrea Darst

    I remember being about 8 years old and trying to use colored chalk as eyeshadow!

  • Satu

    I used to wear winged liner so often in high school and thought I was a pro at liquid eyeliner, but looking back at the photos now ahahaha, my wings were so CURVED, like a perfect quarter circle and there was nothing sharp about them :’D.

  • Isabel Rodrigues

    Well when I was little my parents gave me a kit with a nail polish and a lipstick for kids and it was awesome – it really painted! Apparently, my little brother thought it was awesome too, and decided to paint his entire face with the lipstick… It had to be confiscated… But oh well, I still got to keep the nail polish! That is my first makeup memory!

  • amypugmire

    I remember I was in Junior high and I was breaking out bad. I went to the grocery store and bought a bunch of concealer that was way too light for my skin and dotted all the zits and tried to blend it in but it didn’t look so good. I guess i had no idea what foundation was at the time. ๐Ÿ™

  • Meegan

    I remember my Mom giving me my first eye shadow (blue of course) and mascara in middle school for my first school dance! โ™ฅ

  • Kim Pincombe-Cole

    Wearing makeup in my teenage years was not my finest moment. I think wearing too dark foundation & heavy blush was my worst faux pas…

  • Heather ใƒ„

    My worst makeup faux pas definitely involved my first time wearing lashes…pretty sure they were a good quarter inch away from my actual lash line.

  • tashana saurus

  • christina07

    I remember my first makeup memory was trying on eyeshadow for the first time. I really didn’t like the way makeup looked. So I always applied white eyeshadow on my eyelids, with no mascara or eyeliner on, and I have all these awful pictures of me where my eyes look super tiny because of it hahaha.

  • pinksuzanne

    My first makeup memory was the year I got a lighted makeup mirror. As a teen of the late 60’s a lot of frosted lipstick and black eyeliner was applied daily.

    My mom studied makeup back when I was in grade school and I was totally obsessed with her kit, often fooling around on weekends while she did clients’ makeup. Still have all the makeup books and the hours spent watching her back then now has me incorporating some of those looks on myself.

    My first memories of makeup are of course my mom’s lipsticks and eyeshadows. I swatched them really good all over my face)

    My first memories of makeup were my Mother getting ready for parties in the ’60’s. Talk about your teased hair and smokey eyes! Her Maybeline mascara was a black rectangle pot that you had to wet a brush to use lol

    My first makeup memory was when I asked my friend to do my makeup for me, I was super excited and really surprised that when I looked in the mirror I saw a clown face looking at me. I still let my friend do my makeup for special event but now I know to always check which colours she’s using.
