Hi! I’m so happy that you’re here! I’m Alicia, writer of U.Glow.Girl Blog. I am a self-professed makeup and skincare lover from California. I am not a makeup artist but I do very much love buying and trying new products. This blog is my outlet for all things beauty and skincare related with a little bit of my everyday life thrown in for good measure! I’m a bookworm, a lipstick junkie, and a heavy handed user of highlights. I currently work in the Finance Industry, and while I love it, I really need the creative outlet of writing; and I love meeting and chatting with new people!
**Here’s a picture of me at my wedding to get an idea of my skin tone/ hair color**
For as long as I can remember I’ve been passionate about writing, reading, makeup and skincare. I’m constantly thinking of new and exciting things to write about and I love sharing my thoughts with so many like-minded people. I’ve met some amazing people through my little Instagram account (@u.glow.girl) and I can’t thank you all enough for supporting me and my blog.
This blog focuses primarily on product reviews including swatches, product comparisons and personal thoughts on what I’ve tested. I will not be showing you makeup looks, as I am not a makeup artist and probably wouldn’t be doing the makeup justice. I do want to note that what does or doesn’t work for me, may have the very opposite effect for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What’s your skin tone?
I have Fair-Light slightly freckled skin, I tend to use a self tanner in the summer and can vary greatly in foundation shades depending on the day. Since my foundation color changes frequently here’s my range of colors: Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate in colors 26-28, and Estee Lauder Double Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place makeup in 1N2 (my lightest) or 2N1 (my tannest).
What kind of camera do you use?
Since I’m just starting out, I’m still using my I Phone 6s. I do love it, but would really love to get a more professional camera in the near future.
What are your favorite brands?
I’m always discovering new lines and products, but some favorites include: Kylie Cosmetics, House of Lashes, YSL Beauty and Anastasia Beverly Hills.
