All these months later, and I finally took the plunge! The motivation behind Ms. Adventures in Makeup is all thanks to my friend Melissa, who has a YouTube channel all about makeup - check her out at MakeupMinnie83. Anyhow, Melissa and I have known each other for a few years, and it was only recently that we discovered our mutual love of makeup. Melissa told me about her channel, and I was blown away! I knew about YouTube, but I thought it was mostly for people to post recordings of their cat's crazy antics and elaborately choreographed wedding dance videos (ahem...guilty); was I surprised when I discovered gurus showing eye shadow swatches and application tutorials!

I found this to be a fantastic idea - only problem being she had YouTube to keep her accountable, and all I had was a verbal means of confirmation. I suppose I could post my pictures on Facebook, but I want something more specific, where I can also share my thoughts on all things beauty when the need strikes me. My goal is not to post dozens of reviews a week, or even to post every day, but to share with you things that excite me in the world of makeup and beauty products, issues I face when it comes to buying and applying products, fun challenges I create for myself or with other people...and maybe I'll sneak in a recipe or funny story here and there, if that's OK with you. So, thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet - I hope to see you around here often.
