Hi I'm Amanda!
I have a serious, and very real, love for makeup. When I was 10 years old, my grandma gave me my very first mascara. I remember it like it was yesterday! I literally sat and opened it, and shut it for about an hour. Watching the tiny wand and bristles of the brush cover with the black gloss and de-clump on its way out of the tube. The very next day, I raced to school and went straight to the bathroom and applied a VERY generous amount of the mascara. I felt SO BEAUTIFUL. My straight, fine, and light Asian lashes had sprung to life with black, clumpy goodness! They looked long and full, and I was ecstatic.
As the day commenced, I was very mildly made fun of. Kids called me “tarantula eyes” and “raccoon”. Kind of embarrassing. After school that day, I went home and asked my grandma what I did wrong. She gently removed the mascara with her Lancome eye makeup remover in the pretty blue bottle, then re applied the mascara while I held a hand mirror. The end result was much prettier and much more subtle. She told me that a little goes a long way, and the goal is only to “enhance our natural beauty”, NOT completely change or transform our appearance. From that moment forward, I was obsessed (much to my parents’ dismay). I was far too young to be into makeup, but there was no going back! From then, I would practice on my friends, and as we grew, I would be the one they would come to for makeup for a date or school dance.
