Oh, hello! Welcome to my blog, aka the place I use to ramble on about the obsessive amount of makeup I seem to buy. So I guess I should introduce myself, I’m Samm and I’m a 21 year old makeup artist from Kent in the UK. If I’m not busy talking all things makeup then I’m either painting faces, shopping, napping, spending too much time on Netflix or dreaming of my next trip to New York.
Talents include: banana bread making, stalking Niall Horan, buying too much makeup, covering my face in as much glitter as possible, nail art, remembering song lyrics, ranting, having freakishly bendy fingers.
I set up SColvinBeauty back in early 2012 (how has it been that long already?!) during my final year of high school as a place for me to use as my own little online beauty journal. It started with beauty posts sharing reviews, hauls and favourites then I started to add some lifestyle posts into the mix and now it’s a bit of everything – but beauty will always be where my heart belongs.
I do also occasionally share posts on my life with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and PoTS. Both conditions have played a big part of my everyday life from a young age so I like to use my blog and social media to share my experiences and to reach out to people suffering the same or similar illnesses as I know how hard it can be. I have a post here back from 2015 talking about my EDS and how it affects me if you fancy a read!
So welcome to the world of SColvinBeauty – I hope you enjoy my posts!
