So, about me. Let’s start from the beginning. “Hello, my name is Christina and I am a makeup junkie”. It’s been a sick problem since I was 14 and my mom took me to the Clinique counter. Due to my Italian/Scottish heritage my fair skin is riddled with dark under eye circles (thanks dad!). Not a good combo. After a lot of tears and a ton of begging, my mom succumbed to buying me my first makeup. Clinique Continuous Coverage Concealer and Simply Mauve Lipstick. I was in HEAVEN, and officially hooked on makeup. In one fell swoop, my circles were covered up, and I could whip out my big girl lipstick at a moments notice.
I could have bought a house with all the money I’ve spent on makeup and skincare. Boy’s and their toys…me and my makeup. I have been lucky enough to now make this passion my career.
I think beauty comes from many things, and makeup is there to help you feel prettier and give you the confidence to strut your amazing self down the street. If you love blue eyeshadow, than rock on with your bad self. But, if you have a question, then venture out into the cyber space world and ask me. I won’t tell you to throw away your beloved cherry red lipstick, but I might advise you to wear it on it’s own, and not with that fabulous blue eye shadow.
As long as you wear a big smile on your face and attempt to laugh as much as possible I am sure you will glow. Learning to find the humor in life and laugh is half the battle. It’s the only beauty secret I truly believe in. No amount of shimmer powder can ever fix a sad face. Believe me, I’ve tried.
