Hi!  I’m so happy that you’re here!  I’m Alicia, writer of U.Glow.Girl Blog.  I am a self-professed makeup and skincare lover from California.  I am not a makeup artist but I do very much love buying and trying new products.  This blog is my outlet for all things beauty and skincare related with a little bit of my everyday life thrown in for good measure!  I’m a bookworm, a lipstick junkie, and a heavy handed user of highlights.  I currently work in the Finance Industry, and while I love it, I really need the creative outlet of writing; and I love meeting and chatting with new people!

For as long as I can remember I’ve been passionate about writing, reading, makeup and skincare.  I’m constantly thinking of new and exciting things to write about and I love sharing my thoughts with so many like-minded people. I’ve met some amazing people through my little Instagram account (@u.glow.girl) and I can’t thank you all enough for supporting me and my blog.

This blog focuses primarily on product reviews including swatches, product comparisons and personal thoughts on what I’ve tested.  I will not be showing you makeup looks, as I am not a makeup artist and probably wouldn’t be doing the makeup justice.  I do want to note that what does or doesn’t work for me, may have the very opposite effect for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s your skin tone?
I have Fair-Light slightly freckled skin, I tend to use a self tanner in the summer and can vary greatly in foundation shades depending on the day.  Since my foundation color changes frequently here’s my range of colors: Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate in colors 26-28, and Estee Lauder Double Estée Lauder Double Wear  Stay-in-place makeup in 1N2 (my lightest) or 2N1 (my tannest).

What kind of camera do you use?
Since I’m just starting out, I’m still using my I Phone  6s. I do love it, but would really love to get a more professional camera in the near future.

What are your favorite brands?
I’m always discovering new lines and products, but some favorites include: Kylie Cosmetics, House of Lashes, YSL Beauty and Anastasia Beverly Hills.

    Love the blog! As a fellow makeup lover I can’t wait to see what’s coming next. I have a much different skin tone but I always enjoy makeup swatches and reviews. Congratulations on the new blog


    1. Thank you so much, Monica. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I’m going to have to get friends over with different skin tones to take swatch pictures! That way there’s something for everyone! Thanks for the idea. 🙂
