Hello! My name is Marie, I am 48 years old and I Am THE Makeup Junkie! I am a huge makeup fanatic. After 26 years of being an Esthetician and Makeup Maven, I finally turned my dream into a reality and started my own blog. I had kids so for many years I didn't have time to do this, but now I am stuck at .home and have plenty of time
It is true that my makeup collection is incredibly large. It rivals that of an entire store's inventory
Not only do I a large makeup closet, but I have my large desk with all of the smaller containers, then the large cabinet containing makeup and then on the my skincare cabinet with drawers holding palettes on top. I also have my brushes on top of the skincare cabinet. It looks small but in reality I believe that my collection is worth around $90,000. That is why I do say that I have the largest collection in North America, at least I wasn't always this way: I was going to be an Anthropologist but didn't enjoy it, so I left after my MA. Then I went to Esthetics school and worked around salons and for a plastic surgeon. My collection has grown a lot over the years
My ex-husband is Greek, I met him in Paris. I was lucky enough to go to school there after my BA in Anthropology. I have two teenage girls who will be the death of me, I am convinced. And we have a tiny Yorkshire Terrier named Cocoa. He is adorable. Currently I am divorced, and back on the dating scene. Dating mostly younger men.
I was in a bad car accident a couple of years ago and hurt my back, shoulders and hand. I had back surgery and now have to have two more surgeries (shoulder and nerve impingement in forearm). I was in another car accident in 2013, right after I had my first fusion surgery (L5-S1)In the past couple of years I had two surgeries total, to fuse L2-S1. I just hope it doesn't interrupt the blogging, which is keeping me sane
