About My Beauty Musings

In 2013, I discovered the beauty community on Instagram and there was no turning back! For a makeup junkie like me, Instagram was a great platform for me to express my love for makeup and to meet other makeup Instagrammers and bloggers who share the same passion. Fast forward to November 2015, I decided that it was time I started a beauty blog to pen down my thoughts on products. And so, ta da! MyBeautyMusings.com was created! πŸ˜€ Dear readers, please be assured that I absolutely will write my honest true opinions on any product or service, be it endorsed or not. Please read the full disclaimer. Now, read on to find out to know more about lil’ ole me.

Life is a book, and there are a thousand pages I have not read. — Cassandra Clare

Growing up in Singapore, I dreamed of becoming an author and an actress. Two very different career paths but it actually makes sense because I’m an Extroverted Introvert. Yeah that means that I have no problem talking to strangers but when the conversation is just small talk I’d rather just go back to being alone. As a child, I would immerse myself in books, often to the chagrin of my schoolteachers, who would find I hid novels behind my textbooks during class. I faintly recall my partner always having to nudge me to get me to pay attention in class. πŸ˜‰ I’ve acted in many roles including a fisherman, a mime and a wealthy Dutch girl. Alas, my Mandarin isn’t good so I had to give up my acting dreams.

The world of YouTube changed my perception of makeup. With makeup, you can go crazy and experiment because at the end of the day, it can be removed! Oh and I’m that girl who reads all the ingredients on the back of the packaging. It’s the chemistry geek in me. I now spend my days blogging and Instagramming beauty products and spending way too much money at Sephora.

I have a variety of interests apart from makeup, including photography, traveling, analyzing every single advertisement I come across and listening to the same Shawn Mendes song all day. Some of my favorite things are: cameras; interesting architecture; New York City; Strand bookstore; very high heels; cozy cafes; 3 Musketeers Mint Chocolate (why do we not have this in Singapore?); eggs benedict; ice cream; pretty much anything that falls under β€œcomfort food”. When I’m not blogging, I spend my days crafting ad copies.
