Makeup has always been a hobby of mine. I began wearing it in 7th grade- a bit of lightweight foundation, blush, and maybe mascara. I’m sure I looked fantastic with all of my unskilled confidence. Thankfully I didn’t grow up in the digital age so there aren’t a rash of photos to confirm or deny my abilities!
I’ve always had a natural bend towards the arts, and using my love of makeup to encourage me to publish my writing, at least weekly, has allowed me to try new products and writing styles. Even with a degree in Creative Writing I have hardly been able to call myself a writer until now. This page represents personal growth combined with my passion for writing. My product reviews are 100% honest and 100% my opinions. I don’t claim to be an expert, but I know what I like and what works for me.
My site is broken down into a few categories, my favorite being What’s In a Name. This series is based on products I purchase because their name amuses me. See my review on Urban Decay’s F-Bomb for more details! I also have a series called YouTube Made Me Buy and YouTube Collabs. YouTube has definitely enhanced my love for beauty products as the beauty gurus create and inspire with their tutorials, reviews, and hauls. Trendiness is not something I necessarily look to, but it helps me develop new techniques and destroys my previously self-imposed boundaries.
