ABOUT MAKEUP BY CELLY
Blog Type: Beauty, Health & Fashion
I'm a 20-something Latina from the Bay Area, California. Works within the Medical Field, self-proclaimed goof with an odd facination over Mooses, Smoothies and Bob Ross. This blog was made solely from an obsessive attitude towards makeup and slowly immersed to include some health and fashion topics. I am in no way an expert but for the past eight (8) years it has played a considerable role in my life.
As of now, makeup and blogging has become more of a side-hobby and one that I thoroughly enjoy sharing of whatever knowledge or looks I have. I become inspired by everyday people and find makeup artistry such an awesome, creative outlet.
Freelancing will be a side-job I'd like to maintain throughout my life as I enjoy doing makeovers and would hopefully become a licensed cosmetologist and professionally learn how to do hair ....'cus hunti, I don't know hurrrr.
1.What kind of Foundation do you use and what shade color?
I use different kinds but what you will see on my pictures will most likely be Revlon. I own almost all of their foundations. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin so I'm always switching. And my skin tone color changes often due to time of the year so I'm forced to customize my foundation to find a decent match. Majority of the foundations are of liquid formula.
Here's a list of all foundations I have used:
- MAC Studio Fix Fluid - NC45
- Revlon Colorstay Foundation - Golden Caramel
- Vincent Longo Liquid Canvas - Rich Sienna #11
- NARS Foundation - Cadiz & Tahoe
- Bare Minerals Matte - Golden Tan
- L'Oreal True Match - W7 & W8
- Make Up Forever HD - 173

3. How did you learn to do makeup?
Back in the PYT* (Pre-YouTube) days, I use to be active in a few makeup forums. There, I learned a lot of tips and techniques through fellow members some of whom were makeup artist themselves. How I learned to apply is just by saving a photo and practiced emulating the image. Just lots and lots of practice. I'm in no way the greatest and there is always new techniques to learn but before YouTube I just did it the old-fashion way. YouTube gave me more ideas on color placement more than anything.
*I get asked very often, mainly by younger people if I learned through YT and are pretty shocked that I didn't haha. I do believe it's better to re-create an image than be guided by a video, the former really helps to build your own skills. My tip for those starting out is just to practice a lot!
4. Do You have a YouTube Channel?
No, I currently don't. I did have one back in 2009 with some videos but deleted the account as it wasn't for me. I am looking into starting one again... eventually. But with my schedule as of now, I'm content with blog.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me!
