Hello everybody, and welcome to my website! Whether you found my site by accident or were recommended by someone, I hope you like what I post here and will make the effort to stop by every once in awhile. But first, let’s get on with the whole About Me shebang.
My name is Rebsy.
No, that’s obviously not my real name, but it’s the name I’m going by on this site. I am a Maryland-based blogger who has grown up in a small-ish town their whole life. Although it’s not a bad place to live, I definitely would like to live in a big city someday. Or at least somewhere more interesting, to be honest.
I graduated from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in December of 2016, where I majored in English (the Technology and Communications track). My original plan was to become some sort of writer and have a job as a publisher to support myself. But as I grew more, my interests began to change.
You see, I wasn’t always a fan of makeup and skincare.
Granted, in high school, I would apply some eyeshadow, pencil eyeliner, and lipstick, but that was about it. I didn’t really know the “proper” way to apply any of these products to my face, and always ended up looking like a rabid raccoon. Once I graduated high school, I pretty much stopped wearing makeup. Frankly, I just didn’t care about it anymore.
But one day, I tried wearing eyeliner again and, of course, I started looking like a raccoon again. I felt like a clown and wanted to look like a model on Instagram, but no matter what I did, nothing seemed to work. That was when I started getting obsessed with makeup tutorials. As I obsessively studied these videos, I found that my skills were improving. I also found that as I started to learn more about makeup, I began to realize the importance of having healthy skin. So I started researching skincare products and routines to help improve my acne problems. Now, I am just as obsessed with learning about the latest developments in skincare as I am about makeup.
Although learning about makeup and skincare has helped me look better, it has also helped me feel better as a person.
I feel that learning about makeup and skincare has helped me learn to take better care of myself and develop healthier habits. But more importantly, it has helped me learn to see the beauty in other people, other cultures, as well as histories of those cultures.
That is why I am in love with makeup and skincare.
So with this website, I hope to share my journey with expressing myself through makeup. I want to share looks that inspire me and hope that I can inspire anyone who visits my site. I want to create a space where everyone can feel comfortable expressing themselves and share their creations with others.
So now that I’ve done this whole About Me thing, I just want to say that I’m so excited to share my work with you!
I hope you like what I create and feel inspired to create some looks yourself.
