Shauna's Introduction*

I am a small town girl at heart and have a huge passion for the beauty industry.  Like most of you, I enjoy shopping (who DOESN'T!?), traveling to see all of the beautiful places in this world and cooking delicious food.  On the other hand, I am adventurous and  enjoy a little excitement; from snowboarding the mountains of Colorado to skydiving, or reeling in a big walleye and hiking through the woods of northern Minnesota, I try to enjoy all aspects of life and encourage you to do the same!

I have spent the past six years working in almost every cosmetic position that is available.  I have worked as a makeup artist, cosmetics manager, in cosmetic sales and now work on the business side of things.  How could someone not enjoy playing with all of the fun colors, shiny lip glosses and dramatic lashes? 

The most rewarding thing to me is making someone else feel beautiful, the way they look in the mirror and you can see the confidence build, like they're seeing a new "me" for the first time.  I love teaching someone how to properly do their makeup for the first time (especially young girls), helping women with beauty advice (we've all seen the ladies with too much blush, spider eye lashes, and all they need is a little push in the right direction) and sharing all of my little makeup tips (check back often for them)!

Kelleigh's Introduction*

Yes, that's right, my name has an unusual amount of letters to simply spell the name "Kelly" but I love it! I am a Florida Native with a strong, and I mean strong love for New York City. I spent two years of my life there and I cannot wait to live there again. For now at least, it's my favorite place to visit. I look young and I sound young, but I am not as young as I sound or look ;-) Twenties.

I love beauty products! Why? Because I just do. I sat here for a few minutes pondering how I could formulate a sentence that describes my passion for beauty products, but I just couldn't. I had too much to say..I am not a gal who cakes on the make-up to cover up the true beauty. I love products that help keep the skin clean, the ones that emphasize the color of your eye, the hue on your cheeks, and the glisten on your lips.

I am an everyday woman trying to find the products that work. We're all different. We're all diverse in our needs for make-up, hair products, perfumes, lotions, and more..but that's the point of blogs like give you the answers that you just may be looking for. I know that I occasionally impulse buy (um, who doesn't?) but I also search for product reviews. I rather know from reading a review that an eyeshadow isn't actually as pigmented as it looks, or that a certain foundation dries up so quickly before I spend my dough! You get the point!

With everything said, I look forward to sharing my experiences and advice with you :)
