Inner beauty is great, but a little mascara never hurt ;)

So this blog is still under construction. I'm learning to design it and haven't started my tutorials yet, whitch is the point with this blog. But it's on it's way and I was thinking I'll start explaining the makeup below. How to achieve it and, most important, how to do it with low budget makeup and creativity. Every blue effect -from cheeks to lips and eyebrows - comes from one single source, a cheap eyeshadow I'm using in different ways to get different shades and thicknesses. So bare with me while I'm creating this blog, and I'll show you how to create hundreds of looks using as cheap and as little makeup as possible, saving a lot of money.

I guess I'll start by introducing myself; I'm Mariah Xtina (or Christina), living in Sweden and loving everything you can create with imagination and your own two hands. In addition to makeup I love to draw, write (poems, novels, lyrics, political texts), hairdesign and work with nails.

Because of my ADHD and Autism spectrum disorder I still haven't found a way to be a member of society in the same way most people are. That is why I had to choose my own path to contribue in a way possible for me whitch leads me to this final desicion to start a blog. It's a big step for me to expose my life and talents because it has taken me my whole life to trust my abilities and even believe I have some sort of talent. I've always created, in different ways, since I have an active imagination which needs to come out and take form. My ADHD-brain is always creating and when i get an impuls with pictures or words in my brain I have to let it out in some form.

Since I can't choose the regular path whitch been handed to "regular people" I've never been able to have an ordinary job -therefore I never really had any real money whitch led me to this idea. When you have as mutch activity in your brain as I do, you have to be really creative to find ways to let it out. I can't go out and buy new paint when I have nothing left. I can't buy the makeup brands other makeup artists use to create their looks and so on. Therefore I began early to find ways to reuse and refresh old makeup, tricks to turn a 4 dollar eyeshadow into a 30 dollar eyeshadow and a jar of glitter into a sparkling tipstick. This is my thing and this blog is my vision to help others to avoid spending money they don't have or don't want to spend. I will start with text and pictures, as tutorials, in this blog and when I have the financial ability to buy a video camera I will add video tutorials.

I have to get just a little bit political too, because I need you to know that I will always use low budget brands and post tutorials to make it easier for others in the same economical position that I am in now. If I ever start making real money I will still continue reusing old makeup and buying cheap makeup because I don't believe in greed and being wasteful. As long as there are people having nothing I will not let myself have a lot.

So this is me and this is my beginning. I hope I can be helpful in some way.
