Welcome to my first makeup post! Here I add the disclaimer I am not a makeup professional, so please be gentle. 

Growing up makeup wasn’t widely campaigned in our household. My mom rarely wore it and honestly besides one fateful afternoon of using my moms pastels (out of curiosity, I swear!) on my eyes I had no desire. 

It wasn’t until about 17 did I become remotely interested in wearing makeup. Even then it was a little eyeliner here, foundation there and maybe. . .just maybe mascara. But lip color. . .blush. . .eek! No way. What am I a stage performer?!

Big events would come along, I would have my makeup done at makeup counter in the mall and walk away slightly dazed and a bit battered. . .what just happened? 

Then came marriage and adulthood and finally after all this time of being blind I saw the light. The Sephora counter lights in fact. . . the beautifully packaged goods so neatly presented drew me in. After over an hour and a slight dent in my bank account I became a makeup fan. Since then leaving the house without makeup seems cruel and not just to all who see me but I have so much fun putting makeup on.  

Only now do I understand the whole world I was missing. It wasn’t as bad as I thought! Years later looking back and grateful for all the help of makeup professional, friends, and makeup tutorials and tips. I feel I have slowly emerged from the cave of bare face and feel eventually I will emerge victorious and achieve the perfect red lip and winged liner.
