Every Tuesday some friends and I get together for a lunch date and today the conversation gravitated towards makeup. Naturally my ears perked up and I was 100% listening to everything people had to say about makeup and their general experience. Well, imagine my surprise when I found that almost half of the people I was talking with mentioned that they didn’t know how to use makeup or didn’t feel comfortable wearing it because they could feel it on their face! Of course I understand that makeup isn’t for everyone, and that’s fine, but it literally kills me when I hear people say they don’t feel comfortable with something because they just haven’t been properly educated.
This got me thinking though… how many women feel this way? Or worse, how many women THINK they have it all together but really just look like a train wreck because they’re simply applying products incorrectly? Of course this conversation happened today and Beauty101 officially launched last night but all of a sudden everything clicked: THAT is the reason I started this blog! After talking with a few people prior to launching I decided to start this blog to give general beauty advice, product recommendations, and tutorials to the masses via the internet. Now I want to make sure that I address even the most amateurs and help them discover all the fantastic things about a great makeup application or hairstyle. I whole heartedly believe that there is a style for everyone and I will do my best to help find it!
I’m going to launch right into a mini-series called “Makeup-101” which will explain the basics of makeup, what to look for in a product, and the differences between applications. I’m hoping that this will give everyone a crash course in makeup so that they may get more out of my future posts. For those of you who aren’t new to the industry, hopefully this will act as a refresher 🙂
I look forward to sharing my passion with you all!
