Welcome to The Online Makeup Blog. My name is Jane and I love makeup and use this blog to share my passion with others. I am a freelance writer and also a qualified makeup artist, so what better way to combine my two passions than to write about makeup on this blog?
I love experimenting with makeup on myself and others and believe that makeup is a way to enhance our natural beauty. I personally have fair skin and naturally very blonde hair (no blonde jokes please) so things like disappearing eyebrows, looking like a tomato at the mere hint of sun, not to mention my oily skin, oily eyelids and hooded eyes are all issues for me.
I am in my early 50's, so my views are based on what suits me, but if I find a product that doesn't suite me, but I know will be great for others, I'll say so. Likewise, if I try a product and find it awful, you'll know about it.
Age: Early 50's
Hair Colour: Very light blonde (natural)
Skin Colour: Very fair with cool undertones (burns easily)
Skin Type: Oily in the summer, combination in the winter
Eyes: Blue, hooded, oily lids
Foundation examples that match me:
Estee Lauder Double Ware: 1C1
Kat Von D Lock-it Liquid: 42
L'oreal Infallible Pro-Matte: 101/102
Revlon Colorstay Combo/Oily: Buff/Nude
Hourglass Immaculate® Liquid Powder: Shell
Face Atelier Ultra Pro: 1 Porcelain/2 ivory
Bare Minerals Matte Foundation: Fair 01
Please note that all opinions on this blog are mine alone, unless otherwise stated and based on personal experience. I purchase all the products myself, unless I am fortunate enough to have something sent to me, so all reviews are completely unbiased. If I like them I will say so, if I don't, I'll tell it like it is. This is true regardless of whether it was purchased by me or is a PR sample.
Please note that I include some affiliate links throughout the site as an easy way for readers to find and purchase products mentioned. I only receive a small commission if actual products are purchased, at no aditional cost to the buyer.
