It’s Thursday, which means we’re only one day away from the weekend! Hallelujah! Now, I don’t know about you but I like to browse through old pictures every now and then and do a bit of reminiscing the good old times. Haha. So I thought why not go back a few years and share with you my first ever red lipstick. This might even be my first lipstick ever. I’m not entirely sure but it’s definitely one of my first lipsticks. I bought this little beauty in 2009 at the young age of 14. Why do I still remember that? Well, it was a very special moment for me.
I had bought this bright red dress for Christmas and I really wanted a red lipstick to go with it and when I wore my dress with my red lipstick that Christmas day I felt so grown up. Obviously I totally wasn’t and I can’t believe how young I actually was but back then I just felt so mature and grown up.
So this is it. My first ever red lipstick.
Back then I probably only owned Maybelline makeup. I still love that brand today and that’s probably because I still remember my first mascara ever to be a Maybelline one. And they just have amazing products. Oh and when I was 14, so 5 years ago, most of the beauty bloggers on YouTube just started out and if I’m being honest I barely ever spend any time on a computer. So I barely knew about all the high end makeup and if I’m being honest here I definitely wouldn’t have needed something like a Chanel lipstick at that age anyway.
So the shade I bought is 530 in Fatal Red. I quite like the name. It sounds so fierce. As you will be able to tell form the swatch it’s quite a bold and loud red but I thought it would go perfectly well with my dress.
And now here’s a picture of 14 year old, braces wearing 2009 and me. When I look at it now I haven’t even changed that much. My hair got quite longer and thank God the braces are gone. This definitely isn’t one of my best outfits but back then I thought I’d looked awesome, so that’s what matters I guess. I actually don’t even look like 14. More like 16.
I hope you enjoyed this little bag to the past post! What was you first ever red lipstick?
It is not unknown that most girls have an estimated amount of millions of shoes. Females are just known for being obsessed with shoes. I wouldn’t particularly call myself a shoe fanatic and compared to many females I probably don’t have many shoes but the ones I do have I take much care of. Especially since I don’t just buy any shoes. My feet are very sensible so I tend to save some money and invest that in more expensive shoes that are of good quality.
With about 5 ft 4 1/2 I’m really not that tall. Almost all of my friends are at least a few inches taller than me and now that I go to college in the Netherlands I feel shorter than ever. People there are freaking tall! That’s exactly the reason why I tend to wear heels so I don’t look like a dwarf next to everyone else.
Just like probably every girl I still remember buying my very first high heels though they weren’t really that high. I’m originally from Europe but I’ve lived in Louisiana, USA, for a while when I was a 15-year-old. There I attended a private High School and just like every typical High School we had school dances of course. So when I was 15 I went to my first High School dance; the Homecoming Dance. I was wearing this gorgeous dress and I got the cutest shoes to go along with it. I was in love with them. Although I was only 15 I felt like such a woman. After all I was buying my very first heels. Guys probably won’t understand this but for most girls wearing heels for the first time is like being one step closer to growing up and becoming a woman.
I have always kept my first high heels but suddenly I couldn’t find them anymore and that made me really sad. They were my first and I wore them to Homecoming so they bring back a lot of good memories.
After 2 months I finally found them in some old box in the very back of our basement. You cannot imagine how relieved I was. Now they are in a very special place in my closet next to my most precious heels. This way I hopefully won’t lose them again. Anyway.. this just inspired me to dedicate a post to my very first high heels.
Am I the only one that’s this sentimental or do you girls still remember your first pair of heels and what occasion you bought them for?
