I Love Makeup

    I love makeup. Period.

    Life without makeup (for me) is like life without air; just not possible. I love to experiment with my looks, what colors go with what, how pale I can make my skin, etc. I love many different kinds of brands; NYX, NYC, Milani, elf, CoverGirl, Almay...I love them all. I draw...

    I can't get enough and the fact

    that I now work at Sephora is making my addiction worse. I just splurged on Limecrime Velvetines as well as the new Jaclyn Hill Morphe palette. Man that was so stressful cos the site crashed lol. After I got my new year's midnight kiss I was literally on the site hahaha smh

    Putting on makeup is

    such a spiritual experience tbh, I can see myself going from maybe, 3.5 to a solid 5 in front of my mirror. It's great.

    I love makeup! I'm one of those people

    that believes makeup doesn't cover up natural beauty-- but enhances it. Any makeup lovers, please message me to discuss makeup techniques, tricks, or any sort of brands that you believe the the best. (Drugstore or department)

    I have a lot to say about makeup

    but no one to say it to. I grew up being taught that makeup was bad because if you wear makeup you are essentially telling God you don't like how you look. I hard such a hard time believing that and my fascination with makeup only grew as I got older. I promised myself that I...

    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 think people tend to despise makeup more

    nowadays... Not sure why. As a women I have the right to do what ever I want to make myself feel beautiful & frankly makeup does that for me. I'm not happy with how I look without it sooo I see makeup as more than cosmetics, it's art, and personally it's part of me.

    Smokey eye, peach cheek

    I've loved makeup, ever

    since I was about 12-13. I started out with eyeliner/mascara, moving into high school if tried out brows and lipgloss. Now here I am. Top is about 3-4 years ago, bottom is now. Practice helps. A lot. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm pretty damn proud of myself for not...

    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.

    I keep it pretty natural around my eyes

    and go bolder on my lips. Every once in a while I'll go full blown beat to the gods but I don't like all the makeup on sometimes. I feel like I can't breathe.

    I love makeup but I'm not

    so sure if I'm that good at it. My favorites (which I recommend) include the melted lipsticks by too faced, NYX lip plumper and conceler, and the Maybelline fit me stick foundation. They all work amazingly well.

    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...

    Who has heard of Freedom Makeup London?

    I've tried looking at some of the products others have bought, no one appears to be that interested in what I picked out! They've gone for brights, conceal palettes, bronzer and silver/blue lipsticks.

    I truly love makeup. My face is a canvas

    and I can do whatever I want with it. Pink lipsticks are my weakness. I think makeup just enhances your beauty. Wish I could afford the high end products but hey I'm doing perfectly fine with the drugstore brands. :)

    Very glossy lip products do not suit me,
