I can readily admit that I am a late bloomer. Okay, a VERY late bloomer. I may have even mentioned this before, but I didn't get turned on to a lot of things until a few years ago. One of these things include makeup. Don't get me wrong, I've worn and do wear lipstick and have used basics like eyeliner and mascara, but serious arsenal like eyeshadow and *gasp* foundation? No way, Jose! Never understood why women spent so much time and money on these things... until recently. Man, once I saw how many people were posting how-to makeup videos on YouTube and the creativity behind a lot it, I was hooked. No joke - in the past two years I have accumulated quite a collection of bronzers, highlighters, eye shadows, vibrant lipsticks and lip glosses from companies I had never even heard from, let alone purchased their products. Yes, I have come a LONG way from my Wet n' Wild purple lipstick days (seemingly a rite of passage for most teenage girls... at least all the ones I knew).
I must say that I am really enjoying myself, creating different looks that may or may not coincide with my mood for the day. And I think I've gotten pretty good at it, if I do say so myself! Well, at least I don't look like a clown when I go out. I think that says a lot, right? LOL
Man, I love being a girl! We get so much fun stuff to play with... Maybe I'll review/show some of the goodies I've collected soon. Yeah, I think I just might do that. :0)
