I love makeup, but have little patience for my hair. I like trying new looks, and have never been afraid of someone telling me I was wearing too much makeup. A bit of a cosmetic late-bloomer, it was stage makeup for theater and a few very patient and motherly drag queens who sparked my fascination and creativity in that vein. (I believe it probably shows) I enjoy using makeup as a form of creative self-expression, and am inspired by the things I love, from cartoons to astrophysics. By day, I study Mathematics at University. By night, I pay the bills as a sushi chef. My employers are very indulgent with my slightly quirky and overdone cosmetic choices. I try out most of my looks behind a sushi bar. I don't have a huge beauty budget, but I'd like to think I have a pretty good idea of how to stretch a dollar in that department.
I have NEVER, EVER said, "The two extra minutes it took to put on false eyelashes were not worth it."
