Hi, my name is Rhona and I am a makeup-aholic. I love most cosmetics and go crazy for it. Going makeup shopping is so fun and relaxing. I can literally spend hours at the Bay going from counter to counter sampling and buying. It is so bad that any store I venture in, I always make a beeline straight to the cosmetics department (as long as they have one that is). My obsession is pretty recent however. Merely a year ago, I had no interest in makeup and never ever thought about it.

If you had asked me what my passion was two years ago, I would have easily said reading and travel. I was never into makeup. Actually I hated it with a passion. You see, when I first ventured into the wonderful world of beauty, it was not fun at all. Foundations that I tried felt very heavy and clogged my pores. Due to skin tone, my few choices for foundations at the time were Fashion Fare and M.A.C.. I only wore foundation when I had to but dreaded every second of the experience. Making up my face was just not a fun experience.

It was not until I was casually watching one of my favorite Youtubers, The Luxe Babe, did my spark ignite. You see, the LB was talking about a new foundation she just bought from Chanel. Earlier that year, I had bought my first Chanel nail polish and I treasured that bottle. The color is gorgeous and it applies like a dream. But, what surprised me was that this brand had foundation for darker skin toned people. I almost didn't believe it.

When I went to my Chanel counter I was still not sure so I casually told the lady, Angela, at the counter that Chanel.... "does not have any foundation for my skin tone." Angela was quick to pull out Chanel's Perfection Lumiere Long-Wear Flawless fluid makeup in 154 Ambre. I have to admit that I was so excited about this discovery that I almost cried (seems extreme but try having basically no options and you will understand). After she applied the foundation to my skin, I immediately fell in love. Smooth, flawless and lightweight. Perfection.

That was all I needed it seemed to ignite my makeup desires. I have been non-stop since. My top picks are Chanel, Maybeline, Nars, Revlon, Clinique and the brands are growing almost daily. Makeup has now become an important part of my life. I don't wear it every day but I love to look at my pretty things and play around often. Come join me on this makeup adventure. This blog will be updated once a week with things such as product reviews, new releases, updates in the makeup world, tutorials, nail of the day and the list goes on and on. Follow me on Instagram and Twitter for up the minute updates on makeup and my life. Look forward to seeing you soon.
