I LOVE MAKEUP.
All my life people have been telling me “What do you need makeup for?” “Natural beauty is the best” “makeup is for ugly people”…but all these people just don’t understand that makeup is something I engage in because I WANT to, not because I need to. Makeup makes me happy, it’s my creative outlet. And with all due respect, I really don’t care what others think. Makeup makes me happy, and that’s what’s important…right?
And now you’re probably thinking who is this psycho who is babbling on and on? Well I’m glad you asked! Hi, my name is Maya, I’m 27 years old (nearly 28). I live in Tel Aviv, Israel, but I was born in Montreal, Canada (which might explain why I love the cold and the winter and why I constantly suffer from the heat). And maybe you can guess by the title of my blog that I have a light obsession with makeup. (Very light! I can quit whenever I want!!)
I took a makeup course nearly three years ago, and although I am a certified makeup artist I don’t actually work as one. I work in a high-tech company and have a B.A. in Advertising and Marketing Communications..so as you can see I’m pretty diverse. But my one true love (besides my lovely man), my passion, is – you guessed it – makeup. All day long, all I do is think and breathe (and buy endless amounts of) makeup. It is my quiet place, my creative outlet, and I absolutely love anything that has to do with it.
So why have I decided to open a blog? I feel like I have a lot of knowledge, I love testing out new products and I feel that I have a lot to contribute, so I want to share my love of makeup with others. I’ve actually been thinking of opening this blog for quite some time now, but I was always afraid too, afraid no one would like it or read it. Luckily I have amazing people in my life who have been pushing me to do what I love (or maybe they’re sick of hearing about my makeup obsession all day and they just want me to take it out somewhere else), and thanks to their love and support I finally made the step and opened my very own makeup and beauty blog!
So now that I’ve been talking (writing!) your ear off – welcome to my blog!!! In it you will find product reviews, my humble opinions on them, swatches, pictures, smiles, and a whole lotta makeup! You’ll notice that the blog currently includes posts both in English and in Hebrew. Even though my mother tongue is English and it comes more naturally to me, I also have an urge to write in Hebrew since I do live in Israel and I have a deep connection to the local beauty community. Besides, I have the privilege of writing in both languages, so why shouldn’t I? 🙂
Disclosure – all the products mentioned in this blog have been bought with my own money (the hole in my wallet is solid proof of that) or were gifted to me by family or friends. I am writing this blog solely for my own pleasure and not for any beneficial purposes. If in the future I do happen to review a product which was sent to in any other way than mentioned, I will be sure to mention it within the post itself.
So come join my mad world of makeup, I hope you enjoy!!
