Hello there, I’m Brigette ♥
Let me tell you a little about myself.
I’m 28 years old, born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii and currently residing in Austin, Texas. My love and fascination for makeup and beauty began during my first semester in college at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Throughout my college years, I established myself as a professional makeup artist and self-proclaimed beauty junkie. With the encouragement of my family and friends, I decided to pursue a career in the makeup and beauty industry. With a Bachelor of Arts in Communication degree in hand, I became a bona fide beauty enthusiast.
My beauty journey…
In October of 2012, I took my passion to the next level and landed a job at Sephora as a Certified Makeup Artist! Working for Sephora from 2012 ’til 2015 has helped me grow as a beauty enthusiast, makeup artist and a beauty blogger as a whole. My passion and inspiration grows everyday with all of the diverse people I meet every single day. In 2013 I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work in the film industry as a Makeup Artist as well as an Assisting Makeup Artist for movies shot in Austin, Texas! I’ve worked alongside other fantastic Makeup Artist’s in the industry that are very inspiring and taught me to be very determined as a professional Makeup Artist.
I love to light that fire so that my passion and inspiration will keep growing! I’m currently blogging full time and taking my passion for this industry to a whole ‘nother level by putting my name out there as a beauty enthusiast and makeup artist! If you’d like to see some of my professional makeup artistry, visit my business page over at Luxe and Lotus Beauty. There you’ll get to see other YouTube videos related to makeup artistry and you get to meet my business partner, Christina who is also a pro makeup artist and beauty blogger.
Why blogging, you ask?
My passion for makeup, art and beauty (and the help of Kyson, my wonderful fiance) has inspired me to create this blog. This blog allows me to share my thoughts, experiences and intellectual knowledge of all things beauty with you. I am looking forward to interacting and building relationships with you and become familiar with your insights about the beauty world. I still have a lot to learn and I’m absolutely sure I can learn something new from each and every one of you.
Other interest besides beauty.
Aside from my interest in makeup and beauty, to say the least, I love to spend time with loved ones and my hobbies consists of watching movies, drinking coffee, going on hikes and adventures and playing with my cat, Washington. I must admit, I have a fetish for high heels and glitter. My dream is to travel the world and see the beautiful places and diverse cultures we have been blessed with, but until then, I’m just a normal girl who loves girly things, adventure and a great time.
Let’s light the way for other aspiring beauty bloggers, beauty enthusiasts and everything in between so their fire will keep burning and the passion and inspiration will keep growing…
