Hello fellow makeup enthusiasts! My name is Michelle and I am a myopic makeup addict. You may be wondering, what is a “myopic makeup addict?” 

Let’s begin with the word “myopic.” Myopic is basically a fancy word for nearsightedness. In other words, I am blind as a bat and without glasses or contacts on, the only thing I can see clearly is what is brought directly in front of my face. Otherwise, everything in the distance is blurry.

As for the definition of a makeup addict, well, it is one who is an aficionado of cosmetics, aka a makeup fanatic. What is there not to love about makeup? So many choices, so many colors. The makeup world has all the tools you need to begin creating beautiful art! Yes, putting on makeup can be an art form. 

I’ve started this blog and titled it “The Myopic Makeup Addict,” because 1. I thought being nearsighted and a makeup addict would make a pretty cool blog title, but mostly, because of 2. I wanted to do a play on the word “myopic.” In addition to being another word for “nearsightedness,” “myopic” could also translate as being rather “close minded,” or as being one who does not have an open mind to experience new things. So, in titling this blog “The Myopic Makeup Addict,” one would expect this to be a rather biased blog on makeup, when in fact it would be the exact opposite!

“The Myopic Makeup Addict” is a blog dedicated to anything makeup. I love trying new products and testing them out. One of my favorite quotes from makeup artist, Pat Mcgrath, is “Creativity is your best makeup skill, don’t be afraid to experiment.” Like I said earlier, makeup is an art form. In addition to product reviews, I also plan on sharing my latest makeup hauls and makeup subscriptions.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoy =)
