I am a one person blogger who does everything on this blog from writing and editing to editing my HTML blogger code. I grew up during the great internet depression (aka no internet)! My teenage years were spent in the bizarre 1980's era, this should give you an inkling of my age.
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. I am no pro but respect all the pro makeup artists. I am just Jill of all trades and mistress of nothing.
I mostly buy my own products to review. Once in a while, I do receive products from brands who are willing to take a chance on a B-List blogger like me to review their stuff. I thank them from the bottom of my pumping blog heart for the chance! These samples are noted in my posts with an honest review. I do not have any affiliate links but do have referral links to provide me with some pennies towards a future purchase of a product.
I thank you for taking the time to read this and visiting my blogs. And remember, any mention of this blog gives an independent angel its wings!

The Grunts and Disgrunts
Criticism about this blog and other comments are duly noted. However, as someone who blogs as a hobby and gets no compensation out of this or my other blog, I would like to say at least appreciate the time I am giving to my blogs. Blogging is not easy but writing down an asinine comment is.
More in depth reason for this blog, please read here.
This blog is mostly for my gain to learn more about Photoshopping and GIMP, both photo retouching programs. As a way to learn faster I thought it would be better to combine an addiction of cosmetics with photos of real people from around the world by learning to apply make up on them. Doing helps me learn faster than just reading a book on photo retouching.
The photos of the faces and eyes on this website have been submitted to this blog and not taken from anywhere off the net. None of the people were forced or coerced into submitting their pictures, all were volunteers. None were harmed in any shape or form either.
As with anyone learning, the oldest posts may look bad which is due to me just learning. I keep them up to see the evolution of my skills. I admit they aren't pro quality and never will be for this is just a hobby. Hopefully, you will all see I am trying to learn and improve with each post.
The tutorials on this blog are my personal views and opinions on how make up works or is applied. My interpretation may be different from others. To look at this blog is also your freedom of choice. I do not dictate my methods. These tutorials are strictly up for your entertainment and a guide or an aid to make up application. None of these tutorials are endorsed by any makeup artist, makeup professional, or cosmetic line. You may disagree with what you see and that is fine but don't throw any stones and burst into a tantrum. If you don't like what you are reading, don't read it. Also, void where prohibited by law.
