i’m a big fan of beauty, and even the term big fan is an understatement. at the ripe old age of 4 i received my first makeup play set, and it’s been a beautiful friendship ever since. in elementary school i had a notebook that i would tape my idea of cool makeup photos in, and use it as my “inspiration book.” regardless of the fact that i didn’t even wear makeup back then, i still felt pretty cool with my little book. enter high school meg and the beginning of my “beauty blogging” on polyvore. i posted tutorials, spending way too much time taking pictures of my eye makeup as close to the mirror as i could… i looked straight up insane, but my leopard eye makeup tutorial still makes me pretty proud. today i’m as obsessed with makeup as ever (and have gotten much better about walking into sephora and walking out with nothing) and i know what products work for me. i’m all about neutral eyeshadows with a sultry twist (sorry for saying that, i hate myself a little too), a good lip color, glowing skin (once again, sorry), and perfume that smells good (i’m trying to make a joke). do any of you have “holy grail” beauty products?
