Ever since I was a little girl, I have always felt more me in makeup. Bare skin is beautiful, but the power of the perfect nude lip or radiant foundation should never be underestimated. The time I devote to doing my makeup each morning is my absolute favorite part of the day because it is the time when I am most happy — the time when I choose to love myself.
I began this blog in 2015 to pursue my lifelong passions for beauty and writing. Now, I am 23, and what started as a way to share what I loved with others has developed into a digital magazine that has grown with me through high school, college, and my journalism career. Whether you are new to the world of makeup or you want to find someone who is just as in love with it as you, makeupbymakena.com is your source for all things beauty. Here, you will discover in-depth product reviews, elevated everyday looks, and so much more. I hope my content cultivates community and confidence.
This 32-page magazine is a guide to my all-time favorite beauty products: a valuable resource for beginners, professionals and everyone in between.
