My Philosophy on Makeup

It is ironic that I love everything "beauty" and I am by no means a girly girl. I like color. I love expression. I find that these parts of me are satisfied in makeup and hair. College helped me discover my talent in hair. I was a Sports Medicine major...where they do that at? lol. Well, needless to say, my friend challenged me on my passion and goals. Annnnnnnnnd POOF, I majored in Management (for the business side) and am working on my degree in Chemistry to move forward in developing my own hair and makeup products. *pause*. Okay, I'm back. I'm at work tee hee hee. :).

I could go into my life goals and passions but ultimately my philosophy on makeup is that it is meant to "accentuate not create". I know that there are those create the illusion of beauty by cakin on the most full coverage EVERYTHING lol, but what they don't know is that, for me, the secret is to work with what you got and not try to create miracles. That is God's Seriously though, I find satisfaction in focusing on my features and how to accentuate them than try to MAKE my face look like my mom's name is Tammy Faye and my pop's name is Bozo the Clown (not to mention my huge disdain for clowns and all they stand for). Did you know there is fraternity for clowns???!!! My heart started thumping even reading about it. I have to take breaths before I go to the Sillyfarm site when I ordered my Ben Nye products. Enough of the ranDUMBness.

I also believe that quality trumps quantity. You can own all the cheap stuff you want but if it isn't worth a darn. What for? I would rather spend $12 for an eyeshadow that will last me for years than buy a $2 one that will crack and/or crumble, disappoint by being powdery or generally sucks in color pay off. I'm just saying. Don't get me wrong Revlon, Maybelline, and L'Oreal are all coming back and demanding the attention of the young and colorful consumers with a vengeance. I'm loving it...."maybe she's born with it...(fill in the blank).

But yeah, I love all that stuff. Things that make me feel beautiful. But understand this, the makeup you put on on the outside can not replace the the beauty that should already exist on the inside. Think about it!
