Below Freezing Beauty came about at the end of the 2010 election, a time that was particularly stressful and difficult for me professionally. I missed writing for myself. I missed writing for people who weren’t looking for a fight. So I came home one night, reorganized my eye shadows, and decided it was time to do something just for me. If other people enjoyed it, well — that would be a bonus.
I’m not a professional makeup artist. I freely confess I didn’t know how to blow dry my hair properly until I was well into my 20s. I like to look put together, though, and I like to keep trying new things and learning new skills. I’ve spent a lot of money on a lot of products over the years — some of it money well spent, and some of it not so much. On Below Freezing Beauty, I talk about what I’m using, how I’m using it, and whether or not I’d shell out for it again. Hopefully I can save you from making some of the same mistakes I’ve made.
