    There is just something

    so absolutely so delicious about trying new looks. Every time I pop open my kit and let the brushes do the work I gain a little more pep in my step.

    Make Up Was My Canvas.

    As a teen I had chronic acne and was so self conscious. I worked as a shampoo girl in a classy salon. I learned how to conceal my blemishes and accent my good features. I was a licensed make up artist by 15. I dreamed of a future in cosmetology. I became a stylist instead and...

    Makeup≪3

    Makeup to me is not just making someone feel better about them self or to make someone look pretty. Makeup is a art. A way to express yourself, which is why i love makeup so much. I get told like by tons of people, oh she wears to much makeup or you would look better with no...

    Love!

    I absolutely love it. I think great makeup is an art form. It makes me feel fun, feminine and creative! I don't think it's about covering up, it's about enhancing and expressing yourself. :]

    Learning From My Sister

    Once I started to regularly wear feminine undergarments, my sister, 1-year-older than me, suggested I try makeup, too. I had been watching her, my mom, and my aunt for some time, so the suggestion was something I had been thinking of. She offered to help me since she felt me...

    I love makeup. I feel

    as if it's the only way I can actually express myself artistically. I'm not very good with drawing, painting, or sculpting, but hand me a makeup brush and I'm willing to make a masterpiece.

    My Relationship With Makeup

    My mum is a makeup artist. Ever since I was a child, she bought me a ton of makeup. Back in middle school, she used to put it on my face for practice. She wasn't like one of those annoying beauty pageant mums, though. She used makeup as a form of art. I loved watching my mom put...

    So I tried using more make up

    than usual today and I sadly love it! I feel like taking if off made me more self conscious and I feel like that's exactly what make up does. Makes you more confident to then make you feel less comfortable in your own skin when you take it off. I love it but I need to stop :'(
