2. How long have you been in love with makeup?
Wow, good question, I've been in love with makeup since age 13 when my mom allowed me to get my first tube of MAC lipstick (Marrakech) from Nordstrom in '93. It was a brick red matte color and I thought I was the hottest girl in school. lol
3. What products/brands are you dying to try?
I have this thing for overseas brand/products. It must be the fact that they are not readily available to me. A few I want to try are : Black Up, K by Beverly Knight , Barry M, and Orissa Cosmetics

I don't wear makeup everyday.

6. Anything else? Share your random beauty thoughts! Beauty is random and personal. To me there is no wrong or right way. Beauty can be found in everything. The only thing that ever matters is how makeup/beauty makes you feel. It should help you hide flaws if you want it to or accentuate and bring out your favorite features if you want it to. With or without makeup you have to love yourself first :-)
