I have been blogging for five years, and I’ve had my Instagram account for the same amount of time. Since 2015 the app has gone through a lot of changes, whether it be the app its self or the type of content that was popular. For todays post I thought it would be fun to look at some of my early content and react to it five years later.
This is Reacting To My Old Instagram Photos.
My First Ever Post
This was my first high end palette, and I remember being so excited to take photos of it and share it online. I’d seen beauty accounts, and really wanted to do it myself and this is where I started. It’s funny that this post did well, but this was before the dreaded algorithm change when engagement was better. It’s five years later and I’m still really happy with this photo, and would post it again… with a different edit. Oh, and the white borders can go.
A Little Snippet of my Dressing Table
I took this photo on a whim, as I had just finished setting up my vanity and I loved the way it looked. It’s fair to say that I was surprised to see it do so well. It’s also funny to see that I had so little brushes back then, as my setup has changed a lot over the years. As my brush collection grew I had to invest in more storage as two puts just doesn’t cut it anymore.
My Favourite Lipstick
I have to say that I’m not surprised I was late to post this because I was napping. What can I say? I love to sleep. It’s funny that I probably wouldn’t attempt to wear a colour like this now, but I vividly remember loving this shade at the time. It’s a muted red, and I remember the formula being lovely too. I don’t own it anymore, but I’m tempted to see if they still sell it.
Urban Decay Naked Palette Collection
I finally got rid of the white borders, it only took 11 months, but it happened! This photo also marks the end of the pastel theme that was short lived, but if I’m being honest a lot of those posts got deleted as they were too cringey to keep. Do you remember pastel Instagram? This photo also marks the first time I ever had a photo stolen, as I remember seeing it pop up on other people’s feeds. Which was a shock to say the least. Naked palettes were the palettes to own at the time, and it’s fair to say that they’ve majorly fallen off since then.
There we have it, that was me reacting to my old Instagram photos. I hope it came across well over text, and that you enjoyed a look at some of my early content.
How long have you been on Instagram for?
