I remember the first piece of makeup I ever bought. I was 12, and I thought I was the coolest person in the universe because I had Wet 'n Wild lipstick. It was hot pink. I wore no other makeup, just my hot pink Wet 'n Wild lipstick.
In high school, my mother introduced me to department store makeup, but it wasn't until after I graduated from college that I discovered that there were so many different makeup and skin care companies that I had never heard of before. smashbox. Urban Decay. Bare Escentuals. philosophy. I started working for a retailer of these fabulous brands, and now I've been spoiled
In the 5+ years I've been working for this company, I have learned a lot from makeup artists I call friends. I have taught myself a lot of techniques, but I've also learned that I love teaching people about makeup. What works best... how to do certain things... what is an attainable at-home regimen.
So I created Posy Palette. This blog is going to be a lot of things. I will review products, compare products, maybe do some before and after shots. I will do different techniques, share some of my favorite secrets. This blog is for the makeup junkie who wants a fresh opinion... the person who loves makeup but has no idea what to do with it... the person who wants to be an at-home makeup artist like me. Your face is the perfect canvas... and there is so much you can do with it!
