So you want to know a little about the artist behind the eyes? Well, I’ll tell a little bit I suppose…
I’m a self professed makeup junkie. Ever since I was a ballerina years, and years, and years… *ahem*, pardon me… I don’t mean to digress… I loved playing with Mom’s makeup. I’d go in and open the little black case, and paint the bright blue (you remember the 80′s?!) on my eyes. Then proceed to smear lipstick in what I thought was a fashionable look onto my cute little pout. Unfortunately, I don’t believe I looked that good…And no, there is no photographic evidence of such events!
Needless to say, I was a makeup addict ever since. I hit middle school, and used to play with some neutral tones. High School, I got a little bolder. As time went on, I played with colors- but didn’t really know how to get them intense.
Then… I discovered mineral makeup. Yep, and so goes the story! All that fabulous color on my own lids, my family, and friends are all 100% natural! Vibrant, eh?! It doesn’t rule out other makeup- but I try to primarily wear stuff that’s good for my skin. I do love some big-brand items though, so don’t think I won’t use drugstore, department, or boutique items.
Otherwise… I live and breathe for music- I’d rather have tunes on in the background than the TV blathering. I love to drive, especially in the woods- and now that my back is improving I’ve been able to venture out more often little by little. I have a two puff-ball round cats- Peeps who’s awful pretty- she’s a Patchwork Calico Tabby, and her son “Lil” Dude, who looks like he ate a cannonball. He’s fat- but no matter what diet he goes on… He stays fat. I hate shoes- I love going around barefoot. However, if I’m going to have to wear shoes- they’re ALWAYS cute. Even flip-flops have crystals or glitter… (giggle)
I love to be outside, and there’s nothing better than a yard full of family and friends gathered around a fire pit, enjoying the sounds of the night and making s’mores. Autumn is the best season of the year, because of Halloween. Free candy. Plus, now that I’ve got a Lil’ Monster to take Trick-or-Treating once he’s a little older, it’ll be a little more accepted that I love to wear crazy makeup year-round. The smells of Autumn in New England are the best. Apple pies, cider donuts, hay rides, the chill in the air when the leaves have just peaked and it’s that unique scent. Love it!
So I hope this lets you get to know me a little better… If you have any other questions, please ask! If you would like to contact me directly, my email address is amanda[at]snarky-princess[dot]com.
