Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog @makeupby_jesse, you can also follow my Instagram @makeupby_jesse
I say new blog because I’ve started blogs before, even Instagram pages but never kept it up after a few posts. Which majorly sucks because makeup is my passion, hobby and chosen career (soon I hope!) but I would never share my looks because my confidence is pretty much on the floor. But that’s what I want to change!
So I’m starting this blog and my Instagram page today and am challenging myself to the 100 days of makeup challenge. It’s basically where you create a new look everyday for 100 days and share it online. My dream with this is that it will help with my confidence and to be proud enough of what I love to want to share it with others, because like my mom keeps reminding me being a makeup artist you have to advertise yourself and your skills so I need to get used to it. Also I seriously dislike photographs of myself, to the point where 1 million people could tell me they like a photo of me but I wouldn’t believe them, no matter what. So my theory is is that it will take a serious amount of effort in the beginning to find a photo I hate less than the rest to post, but once I get so far into the challenge my need to finish things will outweigh my dislike for selfies.
I won’t ramble anymore but if you want to know some more about me then check out the About Me page of the blog. So here are 2 out of >100 photos from day 1:
I wanted to try and be a little adventurous with colour today so I took inspiration from @taniawallerx3 on Instagram and a beautiful yellow and purple look she created a while back.
I’m just going to list the products used for the eyes and lips but if you want my future posts to include every single product used then just let me know down in the comment section!
- Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion “Eden”
- Morphe Brushes 35c palette
- Too Faced x Nikkietutorials The Power of Makeup Palette
- The Makeup Store micro shadow “meteor”
- Ingot eyeliner gel “77”&”68″
- L’oreal volume million lashes mascara
- Cuci Yours “762” eyelashes
- Jeffree Star Cosmetics velour liquid lipstick “chrysanthemum”
That’s about it for today I think, but please let me know what you think down in the comments and what other posts you want to see from me other than the 100 days of makeup. I’d be grateful for any feedback at all!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read this! And I’ll see you again tomorrow!
Look after yourselves! 💜
