    11/12 I think but i was a disgusting bright orange year 7 so I like to think it doesn't count lmao
    I stopped wearing it for a bit but last year (15) I started wearing it again because it made me feel better about my terrible skin, and I still wear it now (16)
    I only wear foundation and powder though as I'm really bad at makeup! (At least I can admit it now though, I cringe every day when I think back to the naivety of year 7 me )

    EDIT: omfg how could i forget the famous year 9 emo phase where I wore really wonky eyeliner and thought I was edgy oh noooo
    OMG I hate it when you are older and realise how bad you were at makeup when you were younger! It makes me cringe...

    I started using foundation when I was 16/17, on and off at first, and then every day. Now I use it when I feel like it, but not everyday.

    I've never worn makeup unless it's a REALLY important occasion, and I've put makeup on a few times for that sort of stuff since I was around 12.

    I used to dance so had to wear make-up for shows and stuff, so probably about 7 in that situation. I started experimenting with eye and face make-up when I was about 9/10, and have worn every day since about 14. I'm 18 now and generally just stick to eye make-up, but that's more because I'm pale as a sheet and I can't for the life of me find a decent foundation that matches my shade, is full coverage, and works for dry skin lol

    When I was about 12, though I didn't know how to use anything and only had powder. Now, I only wear makeup if i'm going out somewhere big but I had a couple o years where I would swear by wearing makeup every single day

    Just curious.
    19, just a few months ago actually lol

    I never enjoyed applying it, talking about it, or the feel of it on my face
    Recently I splashed out for an ID photo cos I had acne though it's gone now, I still wear it cos I enjoyed the process and when I do it myself I can't feel anything except my mascara a little

    I started when I was in year 7. But I did wear makeup here and there before e.g. my year 6 leavers dinner ^.^ used to be just concealer, then it was mascara and concealer. Now my everyday makeup look is concealer, contour powder (just to add a little colour- nothing IMMENSE) mascara, powder to set the concealer ^.^.

    I first started wearing makeup when I was about 13. At one point I went through a phase of wearing way too much eye makeup & massive false lashes. I really cut down on how much makeup I wore after I started wearing glasses- any mistakes I made looked really obvious & it was so annoying feeling my lashes constantly brushing against my lenses plus I could actually see how over the top my eye makeup looked. After this I started trying *out different styles from makeup tutorials on YouTube & managed to find a few looks I really liked & have stuck with since then.

    I don't wear much makeup, but I occasionally wear foundation but not on a regular basis, and lip gloss, and mascara, but that's it really.
