The Story of Us!
JOCELYN: Erin and I have been friends for a verrrrrrrry long time now. We met when we were nine years old, and have been best friends ever since. Of course, it’s easy being my friend – what, with me being so understanding, non-judgemental, generous, caring and loving as I am. (Not to mention devilishly attractive, as is obvious from the above “prom” pic.)
I like to think of myself as a makeup expert. I have – you see – tried every hair color, every eyeliner, every clumpy mascara, every blood red lipstick, every orange foundation they make. I now see why mother’s try to steer their daughters clear of makeup until they’re older. The makeup I put on as a teenager is reminiscent of a stage performer. When I look back at pictures of myself at 13, 14 – I swear my parent’s must have told their friends I was adopted.
Erin and I grew up together, and let’s just say we had lots of free time to daydream. Through high-school – and college – and even into our married lives, we have always been looking for something to do together. When I started my website a couple years ago, I realized how much fun having a website could be! So Erin and I dreamed up Make Her Up – and here she is!
If there’s one thing that never gets old for Erin and I, it’s beauty products. We’re always looking for something new, a good tip, a hot find. And I know we’re not alone, so we hope to bring to you guys the hottest new (and maybe unknown) products out there!
ERIN: Once upon a time a young girl (Erin) who refused to leave the house without
her scrunchie matching her shorts and shoes met another girl (Jocelyn) who
loved eyeliner. Over the next 20 years they played together, chased boys,
shared 21st birthdays, college dorm rooms, weddings, and babies.
Jocelyn and I have been friends for over 2 decades. We have done so many
things together and we have always wanted to work on a project together.
Growing up we thought it might be a movie review show on cable access that
would rocket us to stardom. With Jocelyn’s success on her website In Case
You Didn’t Know we decided a website would be a great project. The one thing
we both love maybe even more than our husbands is beauty products. Any kind
of lotion, potion, eyeshadow, perfume, lipstick or blush gets our devotion.
Over the years of manicures and pedicures, trips to the cosmetic counters we
have found many products we love. With this website we want to share some of
the great products we have found and love. And learn beauty tips and finds
from other women to add to our arsenal. We hope you love this site as much
as we do.
