About Me

Hello all!

I thought it was about time I included an about me page.  I am currently a full time college student (almost done though!) living in Southern California.  I plan to become an occupational therapist, so several more years of school left for me.  I love dogs more than cats (yes, I know, beauty bloggers are supposed to be cat ladies) and work in an animal hospital.  I decided to start a beauty blog because I love looking at pretty pictures of makeup and decided that maybe others would be interested in seeing what I have and what I like.  I have been wearing and using makeup since I was 2 years old (I was a dancer, get that toddlers in tiaras image out of your head people!).  I taught myself how to apply false lashes at 10 when my mother glued my eye shut before a dance competition. 

My favorite brands for Makeup:
Chantecaille, Le Metier de Beaute, Becca and Giorgio Armani

Favorite brands for skincare:
Chantecaille, Bulgari, Origins, and Josie Maran

My skin type:
combination/normal, very sensitive, highly acne prone and redness prone

My skintone/ foundation matches:
I am light skinned with golden undertones.  In Mac, I am about an NC20.  I wear cream or camomille in Chantecaille, shade 3 in the Le Metier de Beaute foundation, revlon colorstay active in sand beige, YSL teint resist 4

Here is a picture of my doggies for you.  The one on the left is Halo, a pure bred rat terrier, and the one on the right is Maverick, whom I think is a chihuahua/weiner dog mix.  Maverick was my first foster dog whom we decided to keep.  Adopting a pet is one of the best decisions I have made.  I wouldn't do it any other way now.
