Every story has to have a beginning. Why not make it a cheerful one? For me, moving to Seattle in 2008 was a great beginning to a new chapter of my life. And I chose Seattle, over San Diego, because it’s so verdant. All that rain makes for amazing shades of green.
So here’s the prologue for Printcess: Trying to find mineral eye shadow that didn’t look ten years younger than I am, a particularly nasty customer service experience with an indie mineral makeup company, and a 15-month-long stint of unemployment that left me penniless were the impetus to start my own mineral makeup company.
And although I’ve had plenty of small frustrations in mixing up colors and learning the art of micas and oxides, it’s wickedly good fun to play mad scientist.
What’s your favorite color to start new beginnings with?
