Welcome To My Blog!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my makeup and beauty blog. My name is Kristie and I am a twenty four year old graduate student living in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Ever since I was a pre-teen, makeup always intrigued me. It was not until my senior year of college when I really got into makeup brands, skincare routines, and overall beauty. Before I began my makeup collection, I had a small makeup bag from Victoria’s Secret with a couple of MAC eyeshadows, a MAC mascara, a MAC eyeliner, a MAC lipgloss, and Neutrogena foundation (I can credit my Mom for introducing me to MAC! ) I told myself that I only needed enough makeup to fill up that small makeup bag.
One summer before leaving for college, I stopped by an Ulta and decided to try out a new foundation. Upon entering Ulta, I was quickly overwhelmed by all the makeup brands, skincare, and hair products. I immediately walked to Bare Minerals because they were selling “try it” kits. After using Bare Minerals, my eyes were opened to all the wonderful makeup brands in the shelves at Ulta and later Sephora.
Now I can say I am a full blown makeup junkie, but I am starting this blog to downsize my collection because I got too caught up in the glitz and glamour of buying new makeup every month. I was inspiring by a couple of girls on Instagram to do a “100 Day Spending Ban.” My spending ban will officially start on January 1, 2015.

Stay tuned to see what rules I set for myself!
