Hi all, welcome to my blog, where I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and turn my passion of Makeup, Beauty & Skincare into words.
For my first post, I thought this would be a great opportunity to get to know each other. So, a little about me.
Hi, pleased to meet you!
I just turned 26 – New year, new me, right? I’m living in easily the greatest city in the world, Toronto, Ontario, Canada! Fun fact, I was born and raised in a tiny town north of Montreal, Quebec, so I am fully bilingual in French.
When I graduated high school, I decided to pursue a career in Advertising. After 7 years of school, I’m now living the life working at a fabulous advertising agency in downtown Toronto, living with my Fiance, Sean, and our cat, Juno.
Here is my little family!
So, you must be wondering, why Makeup, Beauty & Skincare? For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved makeup. Growing up, I spent every morning watching my mom get ready for work. She would curl her hair and do her makeup every morning, and wash it all off at night. She always taught me the importance of taking care of yourself, which included a skincare routine – This is probably why I look like I’m 12, because I’ve been using creams, lotions and potions since I was about 15.
In school, my friends always begged me to do their makeup. While I did consider a career as a MUA, I decided to take the corporate safety route. No regrets by any means, it just means I can pursue this as an exciting hobby!
Fast forward to now, I work full time during the day at the ad agency, and at night, I binge watch Netflix – So I figured, I should do something more productive and get this beauty blog going once and for all – I did have a little stunt making YouTube videos, but I am on hiatus from that for the time being – I want to focus on my Instagram (@JPepinBeauty) and now, my blog!
So – I look forward to my new adventure, and I hope to provide you with some great content, from first impression, reviews, tutorials and more. Hope you’ll join me for the ride!
