About

Hello there! I’m Sophia, lovingly nicknamed Fava Bean by my brother.

I was inspired to create this blog largely out of dissatisfaction with the amount of information on the internet about lesser known or “unexciting” makeup products. Like most beauty-lovers, I rely hugely on the internet for swatches and information about cosmetics and I want to start filling the content void! Thus, my blog is dedicated to makeup of all kinds, big box brands, indie, and everything in between. Here, you can expect to find swatches and in-depth discussions on every facet of cosmetics. On top of all that, as a color-lover and “bold”  makeup wearer, I have a real appreciation for more unusual shades and products!

Aside from makeup things, I’m a Molecular and Cellular Biology major with Anthropology and Animal Sciences minors, hoping to be a vet! Animals are pure joy to me. I love turtlenecks, indie games, farmers’ markets, and pretty much anything else an old fogy yoga instructor would like. I hope to see you around!
