    I would probably say when I was about twelve, but I only dusted on like a light purple shadow and wore lip gloss. I fell in love with makeup probably around grade 7 when my grandmother bought me a bunch of green things ( it was my favorite colour) and in it was a single of I believe MAC humid. I fell in love from that day on, on my birthday I was given stars n rockets as well as little vi lipglass, I guess I fell in love with MAC more than anything. I turn 19 in two weeks and I already work in cosmetics because I fell in love so young. My oldest would have to be a purple liner from MAC , the colour name has rubbed off

    That’s a tough one as I like to rotate all my cream/luquid product within 2 years time. Also I’ve change my eyeshadow collection completely as well with new brands.
    I would say my brushes are the oldest thing now and most of my old one I’ve given to a new home as I started with natural hair ones. Silk Naturals Ultimate Eye Shadow Brush IS my oldest Makeup item now and I’ve serious always kept it with me for travel and use the doe foot with my eye looks.

    • AGE: Right! 10 when I got this eyeshadows palette but never used but high school is when I started to us a bit of make.

      Age you fell in love with makeup: 23… I really hate foundation as nothing matched so discovering mineral makeup companies made a HUGE difference in how I could use makeup for the face and highlight/contour/blush. I already have rose/red checks why would I want blush otherwise. lol

Well if lip smackers don’t count, then about sixth grade was the beginning with clear mascara and gloss, eventually wearing black mascara, lip gloss, some powder and eyeshadow end of middle school/beginning of high school, and used the whole kit and kaboodle-primer, foundation, eye primer (never knew how I lived without this!), and concealer the summer after high school

I think I have a couple really old Bare Escentuals shadows from way before they had the sifter and it was just powder in a jar. OH Benefit Georgia too!

    Not including “play” makeup, it might be special occasion makeup from about 16. Did not wear for unspecial days until my 20s.

    Age you fell in love with makeup?
    Probably about 29 or 30.

    Oldest beauty product you own?
    Brushes, a gift, from maybe when I was 16 (am 31 now)

    I’d like to share this. I liked to dye my hair from age 16 onwards and once I’d graduated high school I wore platinum, hot pink, even green, all sorts of colors. For special occasions I’d throw on lip gloss and powder.
    One day when I was maybe 25 I was lamenting to a male friend how I got so little male attention. He suggested I wear makeup and more flattering clothes (not just unisex tshirts). It hadn’t felt important to wear makeup until he pointed out it was holding me back. This was in Los Angeles and he’s the one guy you can count on to always be dating the most glamorous woman you’ve ever seen. But still. My brother’s girlfriend (younger than me) wore makeup every day and I thought it was weird, like they were hiding something (nothing to hide, she was pretty with good skin).
    What ended up happening is I did start to wear more flattering clothes (being plus sized might be a downer but it doesn’t mean nice clothes don’t exist) and I tried to fit in more with my beauty looks. I grew my hair longer, changed it to black so it’s semi-natural looking, and once I was single again (after dating some duds lol!) started to experiment with foundation and eye shadow and … this is key… photographing the results. That made a big difference with picking a foundation color, perfecting the application (powder can go on pretty flaky!), and watching for when it starts to go crappy (this is before eyeshadow primer was a well known Thing).
    Well anyway now it’s years later: I’m 31, I’m married, and I work at an auto shop. Nowdays I do always have “the basics” in my stash and if I could do it faster maybe I’d wear makeup more often. But I still am not that every day makeup girl. If I am going out to a nice dinner I will do a full face. If I want to look extra put together such as for inlaws I’ll do a basic face (no blush, no lipstick but some degree of everything else).
    After griping to my husband about Kate Middleton’s eyeliner skills when in line at the grocery store, him saying it looked fine (I think it’s too heavy), I have started to wear pencil eyeliner (only!) more often. How does that work?!
    I think my eyes are sensitive to mascara so avoiding that but doing an otherwise full face is one method of dealing.
    I know most of the commenters wear a full face everyday as kind of a hobby. I know some high powered women and none of them have a full face routine. I guess I’m still trying to stake my position on the feminism (belief than men and women have the same VALUE) -beauty spectrum. I want to be taken seriously, but not look like I’m desperate for validation. I want to look nice but not like a cheaply spackled college freshman. And I want you to ignore my blemishes and dry skin!
    So it’s like this.
    Seeing as I’m a woman, I will be seen as more modern and trustworthy by the men and women I do business with if I look appropriately dressed and put together…. which here/now means enough makeup to “smooth out” (can’t look haggard!) but not enough to attract attention to itself (Can’t look ostentatious!). It’s a fine bloody line!!

    Oldest beauty product you own? hmm.. well since I’ve only been in love with makeup for a year, most of my stuff is pretty new, but I think I have like a few revlon illumance quads, a covergirl eyeshadow and 2 blushes and a maybelline quad from like grade 5. And then of course there’s Claire’s makeup… :D

    Age you fell in love with makeup?
    19, thanks to the youtube beauty community. Gone a little crazy after that for about a year or so when I would apply HEAVY makeup to school! Now I’ve learnt that less is more and I’m all neutral!

    Oldest beauty product you own?
    most probably a blush I bought back in 2007, haven’t used it for a LONG time though.

    Age you first used makeup? 18 ( I had to sneak my Mom wouldn’t let me prior to 18, so 18 is when I wore it and bought it for myself).

    Age you fell in love with makeup? 13

    Oldest beauty product you own? I’m not sure, I have a such a huge collection. I have it stashed in multiple bins. Probably if I have to guess a tube of the original Crystal Baby by Estee Lauder or an old tube of Black Honey Clinique.

    Age you fell in love with makeup?

    I was very young, probably about 4 or 5-years-old. I used to watch my mom and aunts get ready every morning, and I remember thinking that they looked so beautiful. I would always ask them to put makeup on me, but they would always tell me I was too little =o)

    I’ve held onto this one purple eyeliner for about 4 years now. I don’t even know what brand it is anymore because the label has rubbed off.

    Age you fell in love with makeup? 24

    Oldest beauty product you own? An Avon Santa Helper Peppermint lip balm. I’ve had it since 1985 and it’s shaped like an elf. I keep because of it’s sentimental value and my mom gave it to me :)

  77. Lynnie

    Age I first used makeup: around 12, when I figured out how to apply my Mom’s grey stick eyeshadow and saved up my own $$ to buy a hideous frost pink lipstick at the drugstore

    Age I first fell in love with makeup: that would be 12, too

    Oldest beauty product I own? I think I’ll win the prize here: A blackened teal/blue eyeshadow from the original, legendary Biba store in London. Bibae defined the 1960s mod look and its signature clothing and makeup colors – murky blues, purples, blacks – are equally current today. http://www.bibacollection.co.uk/history.htm My Biba eggplant lipstick died a while back but the eyeshadow has the original logo and, thanks to incredible pigment, still looks barely touched despite my sporadic use.

    • Now that you reminded me….I own my mother’s powder’s compact that she got in prior to the ’60s before coming to the U.S……still not hit the pan…BOAC was the name on the compact with a tiny little pin hole that allows for refills.

  78. I was 13
    Fell in love with it by the time I was 14
    Oldest product is a discontinued blush from MAC that is so old the label wore off but I use it very rarely because I love it and It doesn’t have much use left in it! :( I think it is about 10 years old… I know makeup expires but I can’t part ways with it

    23. I was strongly against using makeup before that because I had no problems with my skin and thought makeup was a way of cheating other people’s view of you. But then recently I had bad acne and had to learn to cover it up and I fell in deep.

    Oldest beauty product you own?
    A Maybelline Watershine Lipstick from 2009 (it’s now mixed in with a lip balm for better texture)

  85. Rawan

    I think i was about 13 when i was allowed for a gloss outside our house.
    However, 17was the age when i started to wear concealer/powder in order to cover my blemishes
    I fell in love with makeup with my first chanel purchase!
    I got some money as a birthday gift and went to chanel counter
    I remember getting a brown inimetible mascara (i wasnt allowed for something abvious, yet)
    ,a violet waterproof liner and a clear glossmer with pink sparkles.
    One week after that i got chanel rouge allure lipstick, it was Pink Saphire. A gorgeous my lips but better pinkish rose shade.
    The oldest products i own would be.. The violet liner, the glossemer and the lipstick from chanel mentioned above
    They still do work really well, except for the gloss which i only keep it as a memory
