Why I decided to be selfish

I have currently reached my 24th lap around this big blue marble...
And I've learned a lot in those years, but I feel like I learned the most important lesson of all this past few months.

Selfishness..

I feel like that word has always had a bad connotation in that a person only thinks for themselves. In fact, Webster's dictionary defines 'Selfish' as:

:  concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself :  seeking or concentrating on one's own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others
"Selfish." Merriam-Webster.com. Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 14 Aug. 2017.

And yes, that sounds horrible, and I am certainly not here to give you a vocabulary lesson, but lets hone in on a part of that sentence.


"Seeking or concentrating on one's own well-being"


Shouldn't we be taking care of ourselves? I certainly think so. But let me tell you how I came to this conclusion.

Jouer Liquid Lipstick Trio Swatch + Review



Hey All,

I've been bored, bored of all the same brands I've been using for all this time. I feel as though I'm in a makeup brand rut and I've stumbled across a new hobby of him. Call me the Indiana Jones of new makeup brands! (Well, new to my collection anyway). While Jouer is not a new brand to most, I myself am Jouer virgin. I follow their founder Christina meticulously on social media mainly because she is so incredibly poised and well rounded. I loved that, I aspire to be her, But I digress. Well, one day she previewed Jouer's holiday line and I saw how great of a deal the holiday sets (specifically the matte lip creme set) were and I pounced on them. I thought I should share my thoughts and opinions on these lip creme.

The beginning of Eyeliners & Engineering


After a long hiatus from blogging, I thought it was time to get back at it. I've felt more and more inspired to get back at it. The main reason for my much need break was because I felt like my blog posts were getting too hollow and pretty repetitive. While I enjoyed making them, I felt no inspiration from them... 

I searched a bit to find a voice for my blog and I found it from one of my all nighters studying for a test. I am deranged biomedical engineering student who has a slight obsession with makeup. During the so called all nighters, I was taking a break and during my breaks I usually look through my drawers and stare at my makeup. (weird, I know). Since it was late at night, I would just look. I didn't wanna put a full face of makeup on at 4 in the morning with piles of homework. And that's when I realized both of my worlds can co-exist peacefully, and thrive together. 

Which came the inspiration for Eyeliners & Engineering. The birth child of my two passions. Makeup and Math Equations. I wanted to introduce the amazing world of STEM (more specifically, the "E" part of STEM) while pairing it along with makeup posts (yet another love of mine). The number of women in the STEM community is a small, but we are a strong and supportive group. I, for one, love being a part of it. I find that it is my obligation to help grow our group and since the makeup community is huge, I find that it's a great place to find recruits! 

Did You Know! that while young girls excel in math and science, societal roles often steer them away to having a career in STEM. Over the years, I've heard it all. "Math isn't for girls", "Science is too hard!" or "Engineering is a woman's job". Meanwhile, the beauty community is largely growing thanks to our youtube gurus becoming more mainstream. As time carries on, these two groups continue to split from each other

Well enough is enough! science knows no gender and you can most definitely be feminine while still being in the STEM community. Who says you can't rock a cut crease while applying the Laplace transform to an equation (more on that later). 

Piqued your interest yet? I hope so!

So come and join me in this coming journey of Eyeliners and Engineering...

With love, 
Jemimah

Review: Rimmel Universal Lipliner

Hey guys! 

As you may or may not (most likely the latter), I recently received another Influenster VoxBox and in said box there were a few Rimmel products. This specific lipliner caught my eye, the Rimmel Moisture Renew Universal Lipliner. So I have decided to post this lip liner review and Im sure you're thinking, "Why is a lip liner review so important that an entire post is dedicated to it?" Well, keep reading and you will see why this IS the only lip liner that you will need.

The Victoria's Secret VoxBox! #VSSportTester



Hey guys!

So I was fortunate enough to receive another Influenster VoxBox this month! This time, it was from Victoria's Secret. I must say, I am extremely excited about this. Most of the boxes that I get are geared towards college or school products, so when I got the email about a "fashionista" box, I was elated!
