I have been in love with makeup since I was about 4 years old!!!!! I went to a catholic school growing up and we were not allowed to wear makeup.We mostly snuck lipgloss and mascara but I was especially brave a few times and wore eyeshadow(yeah,I was the girl sent to the office for wearing eyeshadow,lol)!!!! Then in high school I was finally allowed to wear makeup everyday since I went to a public school. Those were the days when the only person I had to get ready was myself and I definitely took my time!!!!! Fast forward to adult life and I started having kids.Somedays if I had time for lipgloss that was a miracle!!!! Since I am a stay at home mom it does get challenging to get "fixed up" to do housework. I have always been interested in fashion.I went to design school after high school but then switched to cosmetology after 2 years of fashion design. So I always keep up on the latest styles in clothes,hair and makeup!!!! Lately I have rediscovered my love for makeup!!!!! I think it is that my kids are bigger and I have time for me again!!!!! Also with the internet I have been searching for creative ways to organize my things. I am so lucky to have a dressing room that is attached to our bedroom(this is separate than our closet).It is not huge but I keep my antique victorian dressing table in there,a shelf and a small armoire for my dresses.My dream before we found this house was to have my own pink dressing room and it sealed the deal on this house for me when I walked in the master bedroom!!!!! So lately I have started buying makeup(well,I guess I should say more makeup since I always bought some!!!!! I have a mix of high and low end and the challenge is where to put it!!!!! For now I found some hello kitty storage containers and I am waiting to buy an acrylic cube which is all the rage on youtube and internet.Here are photos of what I have used for now.It works since I love Hello Kitty!!!!!
