I am Makena, a 19-year-old girl who happens to be enchanted by the world of makeup! I love the feeling I get each morning when I am doing my makeup and I love how it has such a powerfully positive impact on the way it makes individuals feel. Although I am not a professional makeup artist, I consider makeup to be my hobby and I plan to pursue makeup as my passion throughout my entire life.
I started my own blog in March of 2015 when I decided that it only seemed natural to combine my life-long passions of writing, education, and makeup, and I have never been happier. I created Makeup By Makena as a space where all different types of people can come together and empower each other to feel beautiful, confident, and inspired! My mission for my life and my blog is to teach, empower, and inspire others while learning along the way, so I truly hope that you enjoy this blog and that I impact you in some way, no matter how small it may be.
Here on my blog, you will discover everything from in-depth product reviews, wearable and pretty makeup looks and tutorials, high-end and drugstore makeup favorites, eye-catching photos of beauty products, makeup dupes, beauty hauls, and everything else makeup-related! So feel free to start clicking, scrolling, reading, and smiling while you join me on this wonderful journey.
