Makeup Talk and BFTE Giveaway Alert

Hey!

Sorry, I've been kind of idle on blogger (as often is the case), but just wanted to do a mini blogpost about the site MakeupTalk (MUT) as part of a contest entry.

They're doing a giveaway for MUT members where the prize is a BFTE Ultimate Eyes kit (the contest ends 2/12...so in two days but there is still time! Go quickly!  If you follow BFTE on Facebook then you've probably already heard about this. If you don't know what "BFTE" means...then you probably don't really care about this anyway :P)



Anyway, one possible entry was to talk about how the MakeupTalk forum has helped with my beauty routine. While I can't really say that MUT has had much of an impact on my daily routine, I do have to say that MUT was pretty monumental in getting me into the "online makeup world". I'm a little fuzzy on the details now, but some time in the past 1-3 years I discovered the world of beauty blogs and gurus and makeup forums and all that. Shortly after, I started my own blog which you are reading here.

As far as makeup itself goes, I've always loved doing makeup and painting my nails and everything (and have been pretty good at it for the most part), but I've never really paid much attention to technique, application, products, etc. One day, I stumbled upon the DTB "Dare to Be" Makeup Challenges where every couple weeks a theme is posted and everyone submits photos of their own makeup look based on the theme. I thought this was great fun, and it was the first time I ever actually tried to do a real makeup "look".

Anyway, that's kind of where it all started for me...so I guess that's a pretty monumental role that MUT plays in my online makeup history :P
