Blog Birthday Giveaway

I love and appreciate you all, and I want you to know that. I don’t get too personal on here, despite some saying I should, because I want to protect my family, friends and even my pets from the criticism I often face by putting my content on the internet. But as long as you know that I am an animal-loving, silly, honest-to-a-fault, wine drinking, artsy, easily-distracted, Type B makeup artist who loves talking about beauty and making things, you know me quite well. I am also someone who is incredibly grateful for your continued support.w4m-bday-headerWhether you have been reading Wake Up For Makeup faithfully for the past 4 years, or this is the first time you’re clicking on it, I appreciate you. Because you read my blog and watch my videos, you assign purpose to my creativity and that is so meaningful. I wish I could send you all presents. I hope to spread the love as much as I can by doing a giveaway of 3 bundles of goodies instead of one. It has not always been easy or stress-free but I’ve never thought about quitting. Not even once. I have never felt like I didn’t want to do this anymore. I will keep doing makeup and talking about it as long as you’ll come visit me. Deal? Please enter the giveaway via the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom. 3 winners will be chosen at random on November 3rd and notified within 24 hours. A response providing a shipping address must be received within 48 hours or another winner will be selected.skincare-giveawayPRIZE 1: Assorted skincare from derma e, H2o+ and Pixi 2: Brushes & tools from ecoTools, e.l.f. and Real Techniques + mini Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castille Soap-my favorite soap to clean 3: Various makeup and skincare from e.l.f.
