My name is Natasha, I'm 19 and I'm a business economics student with an interest in beauty, fashion and life.
Growing up as a tomboy meant that I never really took much of an interest in beauty or fashion. In fact, by the time I worked out what concealer and blusher was, girls in my year of school had left to study beauty and make up full time.
I bought my first foundation when I was about 16, totally on a whim. Then, with the help of one of my friends I got myself some powder, blusher and mascara and became hooked on it. It took me a few months to familiarise myself with things and I tried out a lot of different products when I first started out before finding ones that I liked. During this time I also took more care in my appearance and started buying clothes which were a lot more girly than ones I'd previously owned.
Because I was that little bit late getting into the swing of things, I had a lot of catching up to do. Youtube was a great help to me. There are some amazing tutorials and advice on there and I'd recommend anyone who was just starting out to have a look at some of them, you'll definitely learn a thing or two and pick up some great tips. Even now, 3 years later, I still look to Youtube on an almost daily basis to hear what people have to say about different products, to watch tutorials and just to be entertained and see what my favourite bloggers are up to.
This is the main reason I got into blogging. I wanted a little space on the internet where I could gather my thoughts, share my favourite products with other people and maybe do a few tutorials and other fun things along the way. (I also needed a reason to justify spending money on all the lovely things I see other people talking about but shhh)
I love talking to other bloggers, and hearing your thoughts on my posts so any comments are feedback is much appreciated.
