Sometimes life doesn’t seem as beautiful as we’d like it to be. Sometimes we find ourselves in ugly situations we can’t control—joblessness, sickness, broken dreams, and all manner of destruction.

However, sometimes the things that make life the most beautiful are the things we all too often ignore.

I’m a bubbly, down-to-earth girl from a lower middle-class family. I went to high school in a town of less than 500 people and graduated from a class of less than 20. I attend a university few people outside of my state have heard about. I drive a car that’s over ten years old, rent a tiny apartment, and live on a little over $10,000 a year including tuition. I have blonde hair, grayish-bluish-greenish eyes, and acne problems. I’m a girl with a wide range of obsessions, chief among them being makeup, interior design, art, writing, and reading.

What point am I making here? I’m just average! I’m a girl without a lot of money to work with. I look average, I live average, I play average. But I wouldn’t claim that my life is average because I look for the beauty in everything. Sometimes to see the beauty, you have to learn to feel beautiful inside. It’s where it all begins! You don’t need makeup to be beautiful, but I’ve found it to be a great pick-me-up. It’s turned into an obsession and I’ve coached many of my friends as they begin (and trudge through) their makeup journeys. I’m here to both learn from other makeup fans and pass my experiences along.

So, what do you have to look forward to on this page? Expect to see:
-Makeup reviews
-Makeup tips
-Makeup looks
-Hauls and favorites
-Occasional “Makeup 101” type posts
-Hairstyles and hair tips
-Tips and tricks for living large on less

Here are some things you won’t have to deal with:
-Poor grammar (This makeup lovin’ beauty is an English major!)
-Blurry photos

Expect to see my first beauty-related post within the next few days!

愛, Sara
