So, I don't know about you, but growing up I had all sisters and a professional MUA(makeup artist) as a mother.

Needless to say, there wasn't a shortage of makeup in our home. I started playing with makeup at a young age. Experimenting with even the most unsightly colors: blue, green, even orange eyeshadow. At that point it was all about painting the clean canvas. Creating a world of whatever my 14 yr old mind could imagine. 

Later in life, I took my passion and hit the books. While studying for my Bachelor's Degree in Business (yawn), I decided to take a detour, I devoted two years to study for my Master Esthetics & MUA License. Best decision ever! I love everything about what I do, but we'll save that for another blog post. 

Makeup is a choice, a form of expression, but sometimes you really need to check yourself. You can definitely get caught up in BAD habits. This is like getting stuck with your Senior Year Hair-do for life (MAJOR no-no). So personally, I feel it's vital to get a professional opinion once in a while, just to make sure you haven't fallen victim of Auntie JoJo's Blue Eyeshadow, or Nanna's over drawn on eyebrows.

The Foundation for MintPear is a strong community of creative, innovative and courageous makeup lovers. Bringing years of collective and diverse experience. I want to offer just that to those that genuinely want to know the truth, a professional opinion. I want to hear from you, and I mean often. If you are not confident in how you look or feel about yourself, let's get to the bottom of it. 

Additionally, we welcome your opinions, tips and advice as well. Send us emails with your ideas, photos, topics and we would love to consider you for a feature on our blog! Tell us, what is your favorite product right now, or what is your biggest makeup pet-peeve. Either way, we want to hear your voice.
