I love how make-up can bond a group of women, and the power that putting your face on in the morning has. I wanted to explore our relationship with make-up a little more, and thought I should turn to the ladies who love make-up the most - Beauty Bloggers!

Tell us a bit about your history with make-up?
When I was a young girl I was one of the biggest tom-boys ever, I have an older brother and a younger brother so I would always want to hang out with the boys. I actually didn't begin really using makeup until high school and I still didn't use it very often. All of sudden a few years ago I became this huge girly girl, into girly things that I had never been interested in before. I don't really know what happened, a switch just went off. Now-a-days I am in LOVE with makeup and don't like to leave the house without it. I can still hang with the guys, but I just do it looking good! :)
Have you developed a staple look, or do you experiment a lot?
I actually do usually wear my make-up very similar, sometimes I will add a little color but you can mostly see me rocking a brown or black smokey eye - heavy on the eyeliner! I try to keep it nice and clean because I live in Arizona where as soon as you walk out the door you make up melts off! So my favorite look is just a nice subtle smokey eye with nude or pink lips!
Why do you love make up?
I love makeup because it helps me be creative, and makes me feel beautiful. Yes, I can feel beautiful without makeup but it just isn't the same. Make-up for me is an outlet for creativity and relaxation!
What made you start a beauty blog? Why do you continue writing one?
After watching many YouTube beauty gurus and reading some blogs I decided that I wanted to share my opinion too! I didn't know I would love it as much as I do. I definitely didn't think that I would gain as many readers as I have and meet so many great people. I love doing because I love participating in the blogging community. The girls and boys are amazing!
