Hi guys! Welcome to my blog! Here’s a little about me:
So for those of you who don’t know who I am, my name is Brittney, otherwise known as Beautifoles.
How did Beautifoles come about?
Well, makeup and all things beauty related has always been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Growing up, however, social media didn’t exist, and the only people I knew who did makeup worked at the local department store counters. At 17 years old, when it was time to choose what to study after high school, I did not envision my life ended up at the local malls.
Actually, I envisioned going away to school, finding a husband, having a kick-ass job, and living happily ever after…. LOL. Clearly the universe has different plans for me.
So while I attended the University of Miami…
I studied PR and Sports Administration! I even interned for the NY Mets one summer. While attending The U, I was a four year member and two year captain of the university’s dance team, The Sunsations. While I was on the team, I always found myself doing my friend’s makeups for all our big games and nights out. It was one of those things where I always joked that “I should have just went to beauty school.”
I came home to save some money so I could move back down to Miami, as quickly as I could, with my friends who still lived there! Well, 11 months after graduation I finally had enough saved to do so. I went down on job interviews, had a couple of options lined up. I had a roommate and apartment all figured out, and when they sent over the lease I looked at my mom and told her I couldn’t sign it. I had a passion I wanted to pursue and now was the time to do it.
So once again, what I thought was in the cards for me went right out the window. I finally listened to my gut and went about pursuing my passion. I told my parents that I’ll set a bunch of goals for this “trial year.” If I accomplished them, this is what I’m meant to be doing, and if I don’t, well, I’d still have my degree to fall back on.
Years later I have grown my local clientele, along with a social media presence.
I provide tutorials, product reviews, and tips and tricks online, while providing on location makeup applications for my clients for weddings, proms, and any other event they might want to feel a little extra special.
So that’s really it! If you guys have any questions for me, please leave them in the comment section below! I’d love to chat! xo
