I am a twenty-something HIV/AIDS researcher living in Massachusetts. I have a full time job in a lab and therefore I find myself under fluorescent lighting on a daily basis. This lighting is what I consider a very unflattering type of lighting that can often dull the features I try to enhance with make-up. This, however, never stops me from applying at least some amount of make-up even if I am running late, which happens almost. Every. Single. Morning. What can I say? I like make-up! On some days, the time I spend applying even a minimal amount of make-up can end up being the most (if not the only) relaxing part of the day. I find that doing something I love as part of my morning routine really helps to clear my head and, in turn, better prepares me for whatever the rest of the day may bring. I do not think that there is a better way to start each day than by doing something you really like and for me that involves playing some music, drinking coffee while I sit at my vanity and put on some make-up.
So… What can you expect from this blog?
I will mostly focus on reviewing products with some other make-up related content on occasion. I believe that reviews and blogs can often help determine whether a product is worth trying out. Sometimes I like knowing that there is at least one other person out there who has tried the product I am interested in (this makes it a little easier to swipe my card when I get to the cash register). My reviews will be as thorough as possible and I will try to compare products to popular known ones in order to provide a reference point within the reviews. I know that we all look for different qualities in certain products and that my opinion will not always be the same as yours, but I hope that you like the content and that this blog can be helpful in some way!
