I am Olivia, a B-List beauty blogger who has been blogging close to 5 years! I live in the USA. I am not a young fawn but a mature and wise woman who pretty much knows beauty is not just about some cosmetic item but how one carries their own true beauty. I don't claim to be some great makeup artist or beauty guru (or wish to be one), but I do claim to be a great q-tip (makeup applicator). I am Jill of all trades and mistress of nothing. I spent my youth carrying around the Gray's Anatomy book, thus the slightly detailed (and somewhat anal) posts about eye anatomy and makeup tutorials for this blog.
What is this blog all about?
It is about in depth tutorials with very detailed explanations on the how and why makeup is applied. It is also the sister blog to The Unknown Beauty Blog which handles the review side of beauty.
Are these makeup rules?
Nothing is written in stone. These are just suggestions and guides to makeup application.
Why pictures and not a video?
Are you dictator of the internet? Why not? I just provide a niche for people who want more of a detailed explanation. If you prefer moving pictures, that is your choice.
Why don't you show it on real people?
These are real people!
I meant on actual people so I can see how it actually looks on skin.
I just provide a guide to application. Besides, who wants to sit 3 hours or more for detailed close-up snapshots of their eyes?
These tutorials are useless.
I heard this before. More in depth reason for this blog, please read here. Besides, why are you posting those hair illustrations and nail illustrations on Pinterest then? Everyone likes to look at different things and I am different too!
Can I leave insulting comments?
Only if you leave a valid email which can be traced back to you and your IP address.
If I leave an insulting comment, what will happen?
I will be thinking many insulting thoughts about you too. I will also be creating some concoction in my cauldron which has a piece of your hair in it. Watch out for karma! I am a person, not a saint!
I am a fan of your blog, I want to volunteer. How do I do that?
All the guidelines are written here.
Do you have affiliations?
No, I don't. But I do have referral links which allow pennies to be placed towards a future purchase of some beauty product.
