Day 1

Once again, here I am, but this time I’ll be writing about something I am still learning about, but thoroughly enjoying (even though it’s making me broke). The first makeup I ever wore was pressed powder from Avon. I also had an Avon blush. The powder was way too thick and dark for my skin, but I didn’t care. A couple of years later, I was introduced to black eyeliner and the waterline. It became my new obsession and I got so used to seeing myself with eyeliner, that I didn’t feel me when I didn’t have eyeliner on. I felt naked. And this is when I realized, my makeup journey didn’t have an ending in sight.

I was about sixteen or seventeen the first time I saved money and bought myself some M.A.C. makeup. It hurt. I bought the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, a blush I still have (I know I should probably throw this away, but it still looks good), and a brush that the sales associate said I could use for both. I felt so grown up and so special, like these things were going to make me a better person. At 22, I now understand makeup is not going to change who I am, but I still enjoy the experience of being able to enhance and cover features of my face as I please.

My makeup collection has grown as new trends evolve and as I now have my own paycheck, but every time I swipe my card it still hurts a little bit until I get home, sit in front of the mirror, and begin to use my face as a canvas.

Join me as I learn about what works, what doesn’t, a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. I am no expert, no authority, just a fan.

Holaa! My name is Maria, twenty-four, Colombian in Oregon, pursuing my Masters degree in Media Studies and using makeup as a procrastination tool. Join me as I learn more about makeup and share my thoughts with you!
