More about me!
Now, I am a full time student majoring in accounting, and also working full time, I really find it hard to find a hobby that was very interesting.
I was into scrapbooking, collecting key-chains, stamps, money, coins, and a lot of other things.
When I was younger, I was not really into makeup. Makeup would just be a thing or a step that I needed to do if I was in a school play, dance performance, singing at a school program, and at special occasions like weddings or a debut. For my everyday look, I wasnt really wearing any sort of makeup. When I was 16, I was staying with my grandma, and every morning before we leave her house, she'll take at least 30 minutes to get her makeup on ( including hair). I actually find that too long and weird. She offered me to try a powder foundation, I was like laughing because I said that's for older folks, and she corrected me that there's no "age" in makeup. So I kept quiet. I tried her powder, I tried it with a wet sponge type puff, and applied it wet on my skin. The finish was matte and dry. I liked it so much that I asked my grandma if I could keep it. Since then, I tried lip glosses, and eyeliners. nothing to fancy. (In the Philippines, where I grew up. Maybelline, Revlon, and Cover girl were sold at departments stores) I used those.
When I turned 18, my mom took me to a MAC Counter at water tower in downtown Chicago. I only knew about MAC because of Pamela Anderson's ad before. I left MAC with a $150 receipt. I thought it was too much. I bought 2 brushes, 2 studio tech powders, 2 concealers, and one blush. My first MAC experience wasn't that great. The Studio-Tech powder caked on my face, wrong color too, and it broke me out. The only great thing that came out from that purchase was a studio finish concealer and the brushes. I made a promise that I'll never go back to MAC. ( I BROKE THAT PROMISE hahaha)
I gradually started looking for a good foundation to replace my studio tech, and I came across a maybelline foundation that is also like 50% water, I'm not sure anymore hahaha
I had a brown eyeliner, 1 blush, and 1 lip gloss. That's all I had in my makeup bag. Funny, I know but thats how it was. My curiosity on how things will look on me, gave me a new hobby. It was collecting makeup. Couple years later I discovered gurus on youtube doing makeup tutorials. My favorites are Christine aka "xteeener" and also Michelle Phan.
My sister kept teasing me that I should be on youtube too. Last May 2010, I took all my courage and made my first ever video on YOUTUBE, which was a "what's in my purse?" Video. Then I moved on to doing a couple more, and here I am today.
I know that my subscribers are not that much, but even having 1 to begin with was amazing! I never realized anybody would be interested! I am so happy that my new found hobby lead me to Youtube and sharing my knowledge to the world.
Thank you so much
