It’s beauty, simplified.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!  Hi, I’m Alyson, a makeup addict obsessed with anything and everything beauty.  I knew at a young age that I loved makeup, but it was not until my 20s when I decided that this is what I wanted to do.  I worked in the beauty industry, I went to grad school, I started my blog, and 3 years later, The Beauty Vanity is still going strong.

A quote that really resonates with me is from Charlotte Tilbury: “Give a woman the right makeup and she can conquer the world.”  To me, this couldn’t be truer.  Makeup is therapeutic – it fuels my creativity, it’s a mood lifter, and it instantly gives me self-confidence.

While this still remains my mantra, now that I’m getting older, my personal definition of beauty is slowly evolving into something deeper than gorgeous shades and textures.  I believe beauty can be found not only in makeup, but in fashion, in health and wellness, when you travel, and within yourself.  But I also believe makeup doesn’t have to be so complicated.  We all have a million things to do and only 24 hours in a day, so I love finding ways to simplify beauty in a chic and effortless way, and then sharing it with you.

For the everyday makeup-loving woman (like myself!), I hope to make The Beauty Vanity your ultimate online beauty resource.

I hope you enjoy!
