The Makeup Box
I’m Candice, 31 (and counting), work in Marketing, and live in sunny Singapore.
As a kid, I used to get screamed at for painting my desk and walls with every shade in my 24-color marker set, but I’ve since moved on to painting my face and nails, with slightly better results.
As mentioned to some of my early Followers, I am “strictly unprofessional” and not working in the beauty industry (though I toy with the idea from time to time).
I never started out intending to be a public blogger of any sort and I certainly see myself as a beauty geek more than a beauty guru. It just struck me one day that I collected so many products and did so much extensive reading on them, that doing tutorials was a perfect way for me to really use up my products, do them some justice, and hopefully help others get more mileage and fun out of makeup.
Over the past 2 years, this has become a place to let go, get creative, continually challenge my own boundaries, get inspired, and connect with people all over the world who share that same fascination with the power of makeup to define - and redefine - anyone.
Aside from exploring products on the market, I love experimenting and mixing my own custom products to get colors and textures that I can’t find.
My husband calls it “Alchemy” and worries that my laboratory (aka bedroom) will explode one day from a freak accident, possibly involving neon pink pigment and a gallon of holographic micro-glitter.
But until then, onward we go!
