First off, to InStyle readers…WELCOME welcome welcome to my humble abode! To regular readers that have stuck with me over the past 3+ years….Holy $#@&!!!!! Can you even??? I would also like to give a huge thank you to the editors of InStyle for reading/recognizing TMG as well! I am thrilled beyond belief that The Makeup Girl has been included in the Blogs & Inspiration section of the Best Of the Web issue!
This website has been a labor of love from the beginning and has seen it’s share of good (being featured on Glamour.com was awesome) and not so good times (a reader/troll called me ignorant for assuming that I didn’t know what young black girls were thinking…uh hello? Newsflash, I’m black). All and all, I have become accustomed to the fact that my life and opinions are somewhat on display and I’m fine with that…because and I do it all for you. In the immortal words of Whitney Houston, “I have nothing…nothing…nothing…..If I don’t have you!“. That’s right, you are what makes this all possible…I LOVE my readers!! There are a few changes in store for the site going forward…you have seen some of them already (new writers, etc.) I know that change is sometimes hard to accept…and because of that, I’m doing baby steps! Please know that every change that I make is firmly rooted in keeping TMG as authentic as possible. I thank each and every one of you for reading The Makeup Girl and my hope is to deliver the best makeup, beauty news and reviews to your inbox and computer screens on a daily basis.
