I'm just some random writing about and photographing shiny things that catch my eye (including my nails). I have other interests like knitting, gaming, baking, and they pop up here from time to time too. You can read some random facts about me here!

My cheeks are normal-ish and my forehead and nose tend to be drier, so I favour products that are formulated for dry skin. I also have a lot of eczema on my face and sensitivity on/around my lips from a very prolonged case of perioral eczema. My face can be sensitive to changes in climate, which is annoying when I travel or the seasons change.

For reference, I have worn/wear the following base product shades:
  • Marcelle BB/CC Cream in Light to Medium
  • Guerlain Lingerie de Peau in 02 Beige Clair (review here)
  • Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream in Light
  • Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Foundation in 190

If you are curious about my blog name--don't worry, you're not the first! Do want comes from do not want (often used in all caps DO NOT WANT), an internet meme that was spawned by a foreign language-dub Star Wars Episode III. At the end of Episode III when Darth Vader screams "noooooo!" it is translated in the English subtitles as:
It became a thing to say for my best friend and I when we look at makeup: to ooh and aah and go "omg do want", so the name came about pretty naturally. To be perfectly honest, Do Want Makeup was intended to be a temporary name for my blog until I could think of something more witty or catchy; I couldn’t think of anything else but I just wanted to get started. I know there are some problems with this name: not everybody is going to “get” it (update from the future of 2019: it is a very dead and dated meme), and it kind of makes me sound like I don't have a firm grasp of the English language. But it’s been a while, the name has grown on me and honestly I am pretty lazy about changing all this stuff now.

Products featured on this blog are a mix of my own purchases and press samples received from a brand or its public relations team for consideration. I am also sometimes invited to press events that provide samples. I do not guarantee anything in exchange for samples or other forms of compensation. My first priority is to always present my opinion with honesty and sincerity. Posts which feature press samples are indicated by a statement at the end of the post identifying them as such.

Please respect that I have put a lot of time and effort into this blog and do not repost my images or text, whether it is in part or in full, or as originally posted or edited, without contacting me.
