My name is Courtney. I started this blog a few years ago to chronicle my journey with the artistry of makeup. I am a recent graduate with a Bachelor’s of Arts in English, a minor in philosophy, and a concentration in professional writing. I had to put this blog on hold to designate time to school and two jobs.
I’ve loved makeup for a long time as a way to express myself and boost my self-confidence. My interest lies with the consumer and how to improve your skills. Makeup is not as intimidating as you may think. It is your friend. Some of my favorite brands are Tarte, Colourpop, and Makeup Revolution.
My favorite part of makeup is doing my winged liner, which is usually a staple of my looks, and one of the most difficult parts of my process. My style of liner has evolved over time. I enjoy highlighters in every color, usually silver or gold.
My goal is to create many different styles of looks to share, both the good and the bad. It is important that like hair, it’s not always a good makeup day. That wearing fun colors on your lips or eyes is nothing to hide. Feel free to contact my email or comment on the post if you have any suggestions for look ideas.
Since quarantine, I have not been doing too much makeup, which has made me incredibly sad. Now getting back to work, I am excited to be posting at least three times a week. I am going to specifically aim for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I apologize ahead of time if there are some bumps in the road adjusting to this schedule.
History that I have with the makeup industry
I have spent countless hours reviewing brands, products, and makeup influencers.
I’ve been employed for a major makeup seller, but I do not speak for the brand or any of their ideals. I think the company is great, inclusive, and promotes positivity.
Let’s go on this journey together.
