My work then and now: why i want to be a beauty blogger

SO i was thinking about it and i realized that i have never shared my background with makeup with you , actually i haven't shared much about me at all . I have decided to show you a bit about what i do and why i started blogging/
I began and decided to do this blog simply because i needed an outlet to all the opinions i have about the world. I get all these thoughts in my head that sometimes never got to be heard. I also was a follower of a few bloggers who inspired me to take the time and share my thoughts, talents and found techniques with the world.
I absolutely love makeup and i love costuming. I grew up with a mother who is a cosmetologist so beauty has always been part of my life. I began to apply makeup at around the age of 15 of course with out my mothers permission and got into various groundings because of it. I just loved how even a simple eyeliner would make your eyes pop. When i started Hs i began to wear it more but it wasn't until college when i purchased my very own brushes,palettes and started my makeup collection. I shortly realized i loved it and that i was pretty good at it. I took a class at pcc with john hanna and i fell in love. I absolutely love the transformation a person can take with just some simple steps and creativity. from then i took his advanced class a semester later and began being his t.a for the years to come. I began to take freelance work and began to develop a portfolio. I also costume and cosplay. I started a small princess entertainment company where we entertain children as well adults at birthday parties,celebrations and events. I Began to study how to apply makeup to look as flawless as possible and also began to construct my own outfits and designs.
Here a few examples of my work:

These are examples of things ive done through the years at different skill levels. :D every one was super amazing and has made me the makeup artist i am today. i am proud of all my work because i worked hard to accomplish it.
My goal in life honestly is to do makeup and costuming for theater. I love the development and putting together of characters.
so now you know: I love me some makeup , some costumes and a whole lot of color! <3

Beauty blender
I know you guys are probably like "REALLY?" that's old! lol and i know it is but i never got to try it. Ive heard good and bad about it and honestly i thought i should get my own opinion on it. Ive always used brushes or my fingers for my foundations so this will  be a nice change.

2. Z palette
woot woot for magnetic palettes!
Yes , once again i am aware this is old. But i just never got around to getting one ! so now i did! :D I love it
3. Glamour Eyez eyelash sets

These look like im going to love them, i absolutely love full lashes more than LONG lashes soo im thinking #20 are gonna do it for me! <3 but they both look like super cute! these are 100% human hair ,and im  definitely hoping i can use them for my princessing stuff.
4. more eyelashes

I honestly don't know what the brand of these are but they were only $1.99 so I'm not complaining.. I've owed a pair of the top ones that crisscross at the last line and they are pretty long. They actually make great lashes for a doll like look. :D the second pair are a bit more wearable but they look light and flirty. I'm excited to tried try them out.
 and last 
5. No7 Color Rebellion eye shadow palette for $2.98
So this is the cover of the palette which i HATE! i don't like reptile ,animal prints anything

The color are 4 very vibrant metallic shades in "Indigo Blue,Purple Haze,Red Lead, & Chrome Green"
My two favorites are actually the indigo blue and the chrome green! i can wait to use these color.
i have so many beautiful purples this one kinda gets kick out.. its not as bright as i like my purples. and the red is very rusty for me. I dunno maybe ill try it out.
in order (left to right)
Indigo blue,Chrome green,Red Lead, and Purple haze
Note: those marks you see are from me falling asleep with my hair ties on my wrist ...
well lovelies that's all for now, im hoping to upload more pictures of things i discover during my move and all the cool things i shall do to my room once i get in there :D
