So who is Taupe is the New Black?
I've been interested in beauty and creativity in general as long as I can remember. I played with my mom's makeup when I was 10 and used to reserve Tuesdays as "makeover days" where my patient mother would sit while I (very sloppily, I assume) applied tangerine lipsticks and blue eyeshadows. My eye for colour has perhaps improved since then. ;) I read the magazines and filled my head with knowledge about the purposes of and differences between foundations, concealers and powders when I probably should have been focusing on my times tables and long division. I had a book on nail art in the fourth grade and used to painstakingly paint things like undersea scenery for myself and friends.
Eventually this love of beauty and makeup led me to take a course in professional Makeup Artistry, including special effects training. Although I decided afterwards that I did not want to pursue it as a career, I will never regret that experience and all the things that I learned from it. It only made me more of a makeup lover! So now I venture into another avenue that will allow me to express my obsession - blogging! So thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy yourself here!
