Why Do I Wear Makeup TAG?

I've been getting into TAGs a bit lately. I think they're a great way to know the person behind the blog and, well, I just like doing them. I've seen this TAG around a bit lately and I finally decided to do it.

There's only four questions, so let's get into it!

1. When did you being loving make up?
I think it's built into my DNA, to be honest. I have two older sisters, one six years older and one eleven years older, so I was exposed to make up from quiet a young age. With that in mind, I was always interested in dressing up with them having my nails done etc. 
I bought my first foundation when I was thirteen (probably not my colour, ahah) and spent the next two years wearing foundation and lots of black eyeliner in my water line. 
Good work, Sophie. Not!

Whilst I always loved make up, it became more of a hobby than a chore when I was about fifteen as I had the capacity to start trying new brands and research products online.

2. How do you feel without make up?
This is probably one of those cliche answers that people expect, but I honestly feel naked. Make up is my hobby so I wear it most days, sometimes I even wear it when I have no plans, especially when I want to try new techniques or products. I find that I have a bit of a sheen to my face when I'm not wearing make up which, when combined with my redness, makes me feel somewhat uncomfortable. I'm getting better at heading to my local shops without make up on, however! 

3. What do you like about make up?
Make up is a creative outlet for me. I've always been quite a creative person but never been good at drawing/painting and things, so I think this is the way I can express it.
I feel a lot more confident when I'm wearing make up. I've always had skin issues and, whilst it has almost completely cleared up, I'm always self conscious about it!
Make up is my hobby. I mess around with it when I'm bored, I invest in products that I think will be worth my money and I love to talk about them with the people I love, especially the blogging community. 

4. List three 'Holy Grail' items
Maybelline Baby Lips in Anti-Oxidant Berry - This lip balm is incredible. I don't know how I haven't reviewed it yet but I will eventually. I have repurchased it at least 8 times
Max Factor Lash Extension Effect Mascara - I love mascara in general, especially those that separate lashes and a totally clump free. At the moment I love Max Factor Lash Extension Effect Mascara
MAC Studio Fix Powder or Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder - To be honest, I really like most pressed powders with coverage. My all time favourite is the MAC Studio Fix Powder, however I've started using Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder as it's a lot cheaper
(Do I think it's as good? No, but just)

So that's the whole TAG, everyone. I tag the following people. I'd love to see their answers, as well as the those of anyone who is reading this. You're alllll tagged.
