My name is Brittany Bowers.
I am currently a college student with a hobby in makeup. I have been inspired to try my hand at making my own blog with my tips, tricks, and reviews on my own makeup items.
I have always thought it is interesting to see why people get into makeup, and how. So I figured I would write here my kind of mission statement and explain why I find makeup so fun and etc.
First off I myself was not allowed to wear makeup as a child. My parents had a rule about makeup, I was not allowed to wear it until I turned 16. Even then my makeup wearage was minimal, (i.e. no mascara, no eyeliner, no foundation) Pretty much I was only allowed to wear light colored eye shadows. Because of this, makeup was something unattainable for me. (I was a goody two shoes).
Since makeup was not something I could really play with, I youtube’d like crazy! I learned of Michelle Phan, and I watched as the entire youtube craze went up and up. And as soon as I was old enough to make my own rules about what I wear, I dove head first into makeup. I spent a few years with the dark eyes with tons of mascara, then spent another few going bare. (No makeup).
But what does this have to do with why I use it? Well. Because I feel like I have had the opportunity to see the best and the worst of makeup. Do I feel that makeup is necessary to make anyone beautiful? No. Do I think makeup is a big part of me personally? Yes, I use makeup as a stress reliever and as a recreational activity. Of course, it would be amazing to get a job as a makeup artist but I know that is a slim possibility.
This being said, I LOVE makeup. It is a wonderful tool to make a person’s inner light show. But I also can see makeup being used to much and smothering someones face.
Again I hope everyone will love this adventure with me.
