Growing up I only associated the color pink with frilly dresses, Barbie dolls, and cotton candy. When I enter high school, it had a different meaning for me. One of the first girls I befriended mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. As a friend, I didn’t know how to respond. I didn’t comprehend. Nor did I want to emotionally but I knew I had to be there for her. Along with my friend side, we educated ourselves on what breast cancer is, what causes it and my new found relevance to the color pink. From that day on I’ve met amazing women of different paths of life who have beaten breast cancer. I look up to every one of them. On behalf of their strength and high spirits, the month of October is dedicated to THINK PINK!

I dress my eyes with Marc Jacobs new eyeshadow palette called eye-conic.

I used to walk out the house with an eyeliner and some foundation and called it a day. Now that I got the hang of using makeup on a daily basis, my makeup routine has more than two steps.
