I did not grow up loving makeup. I actually vowed to never wear makeup, aside from powder, and to just rely on natural beauty.
I grew up to be a daddy’s girl. Since we’re all girls and my dad never had a son whom he could play video games and all those shits with, he might have figured to give us boyish hobbies, instead. Unintentional, I think, but if it is, it’s quite sneaky. Ever since I was a little kid, I grew up playing video games with my dad. And no, I am not a fan of those Final Fantasy kind of games, but more of fighting games and what got me more hooked, and made me more geeky is my obsession with Resident Evil and the survival horror genre of games. I was into rock music (Slip Knot, Cradle of Filth, Lacuna Coil, etc.) and I never watched The Notebook or any of those romantic movie shits. I was a horror movie girl and my dad even bought me these DVD Collection of Classic Zombie movies, and it made me so happy.
However, college kind of got me getting all girly. I studied at St. Paul University Manila, I took up Mass Communication major in Communication and I started applying makeup and I was not good at it. In fact, my makeup was a total crap! I used to put bright blue on my lids and thought they were cool and made me look hot.
Then, I graduated college and learned to apply a more subtle makeup but I still suck. Then, my friend, Celine (Fashiometics.Wordpress.com), sent me two NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil, and I was amazed at ‘em. I searched Youtube videos on how I can use them effectively and I got hooked. I watched one Youtube videos after another and learned how to put makeup on the right way. And then, one day, Celine encouraged me to blog and the rest is history.
I believe I am not the best in what I blog about and it’s a continuous learning process for me. However, I believe I have improved. And I would also want to encourage you, girls, to never stop improving and never stop believing in yourself. And let me give you an opportunity to start learning and start building that confidence in you.
