I cannot believe that this blog is a whole 2-years-old next week (December 6th)! I've always loved makeup and had wanted to pursue makeup artistry for a number of years, until I was led astray by psychology. But years later, and with a bit of encouragement from the fabulous Simone, I took the dive; encapsulating my love of beauty and psychology with the blog name 'makeup over mind'. It's been a joy to run ever since.
Looking at my early posts it's rewarding to see how far I've come; learning and making small improvements along the way. It's hard work, but I love it. In the past year I've gotten a new blog design (by Lauren Marie), business cards, invested in studio lighting, and dabbled with some media work too. I think it's safe to say I'm committed and thankfully I've gotten through the terrible twos fairly tantrum-free! I get to write about something I really enjoy, interact with other makeup obsessives (globally!), and I've met some really amazing women, and friends, in the process.
I'm massively grateful for the support I've received and for all of you who take the time to read, comment, and share. To say thank you and to celebrate the next milestone I've put together a few items for a special birthday giveaway! Check back here tomorrow for all the details!
