As cliché as it sounds, I’ve grown up with the mantra of ‘Do what makes you happy’ embedded into my brain and heart. For a while now, something that began as a mild interest in makeup and beauty has transcended into a mild obsession. Deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole I go as I watch YouTube tutorials, reflect on product reviews, and absorb the beauty and professionalism in related photography. I figured that if I’m into something so much, I may as well find some way to give back, which brings me to my blog.
I started Rosebisque ultimately as a motivator, to facilitate a break away from work and university life and give me a sense of accomplishment and joy. Considering I spend most of my spare time thinking of various eyeshadow combinations, watching videos on YouTube or lusting over the MAC counter, this seems an appropriate starting point on my ‘makeup journey’, if you will. Eventually, once I’ve completed my undergraduate degree, I am hoping to complete a Diploma in Specialist Makeup at another university, and from there travel and work as a freelance artist.
Now for a little bit about me – my name is Rosie (just Rosie, not Rosemary), I’m twenty years old and am studying and working part time. I currently and always have lived in Australia, but yearn to travel (I’m saving to go on a big 6 month+ trip to America in mid-2015). Art has always been a passion of mine, and despite it being my strongest subject in school, I chose a different path of study as I thought it wouldn’t take me anywhere. This blog gives me a chance to dust away the cobwebs and bring out my creative side.
I’m the type of girl that gets overly excited when she has an excuse to dress up, whether she’s going to the local shopping centre or to a formal event. It’s almost a feeling of adrenaline that I get, going through my makeup drawers selecting products to use for that day. It sounds silly, I know, but I’m sure there’s a few of you out there who know what I’m talking about :)
I wanted to give my blog a title that had part of me and part of what I love in it. I felt that my nickname, Rose, and a shade often used to describe a salmon-toned concealer, Bisque, went quite well together – that’s how I came up with the name ‘Rosebisque’.
Well I think I’ll leave it there for now, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you have a question to ask, feel free to leave a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
Thanks for reading!
