I was just about 18. I turned 18 shortly after starting college, and it was in my first year of college that I fell in love with makeup. I wish I had started earlier in one way, only because it would have meant I would have been better at applying makeup at 18 than I actually was… but I think that, frankly, my self-esteem was in such a rotten place from seventh grade and onward that it was better not to have it available as a crutch.
