When I first started wearing make up I owned Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse (along with every other 13 year old girl in the UK); I hid it from my mum, thinking she’d tell me I was too young to be wearing it.

After about a week of doing hiding, I inevitably got caught.

Ever since then, I’ve been hooked on MAC, particularly on their face products.
