My Beauty Story #ShareBeauty Contest
Thanks to Regency Beauty Institute for sponsoring today’s post, but all opinions are my own.
Today, I’m going to share with you my beauty story. Unlike a lot of girls I didn’t play with my moms makeup or dream of being a makeup artist while growing up (I’m still not a makeup artist). I wanted to be, you know your typical teacher, astronaut, flower shop owner, but never anything in the beauty industry. I can’t remember exactly when I started wearing makeup but it was probably around middle school when I started getting pretty bad acne. I never really felt comfortable playing with makeup until I got older and really started to branch out and buy eye shadows and hoard tons of lip glosses. I wore makeup all throughout high school, but I never really tried new things.
Skip several years down the road to one day when I randomly stumbled upon YouTube videos of girls talking to a camera about makeup and products they loved and tutorials of way more advanced eye makeup than I ever thought about wearing. These girls inspired me so much that I started buying the products they were talking about, and I started trying the makeup looks they did tutorials on. Pretty soon makeup and beauty became a true passion for me. I LOVE to research products and find the very best ones for my skin and budget. My friends and family could see I was really interested in beauty so many of them kept encouraging me to start a beauty blog. Me…a girl who just became interested in the whole beauty world several years ago should write a beauty blog? I thought everyone was crazy. After being told this for at least a year I decided why not? So here you are on my beauty blog, and hopefully I share things that help and inspire you in the beauty world!
Beauty has never been about fitting in for me. I wear makeup because it’s fun and can change your appearance from day to day. I never wear makeup because society tells me to or that you can only feel confident if you are wearing makeup. Makeup is a beautiful thing, but confidence is way more beautiful and comes from within. Who cares if your ugly, pretty, tall, short, fat, thin, black, asian, white, hispanic, have a big nose, weird feet etc. if you are confident in yourself you will radiate on the outside. Be confident and rock that bright red lipstick you’ve always wanted to try!

Amazing post! I’m a late beauty/makeup bloomer as well. Sure, I loved makeup in HS and college but it wasn’t until I was a frazzled mom that I discovered the difference just a touch of makeup can make in your appearance (and the way you feel about yourself). Love the Beauty Grew All Around video!
Thank you! At least I’m not alone! I hear stories of people dabbling in certain things when they were really little and it became a passion for their whole life, but that was definitely not me. I know the video is super cute!! Thanks for stopping by Maurissa! :)
