About Me


Hello, my name is Nancy and I am the creator and writer of The Dark Side of Beauty.
I am a 22 year old college student from northern California. I am a bookworm, a gamer, an anime/manga lover, a total nerd, and (of course) a makeup hoarder. I can't forget to mention that I am a HUGE Star Wars fan, a fact which is important because Star Wars is the inspiration for my blog's name. All of the things I like inspire me to create makeup looks. My blog will always feature makeup looks inspired by books, TV shows, games, or some other nerdy sources. I am so very happy to be able to share my interests with all of you in the form of makeup looks!


From humble beginnings...
In the long summer of 2009 just before starting my first year in college, I discovered my love for makeup and nail polishes. I become immersed in the makeup community (Youtube and Blogger), and soon after made the decision to create my own blog. However, The Dark Side of Beauty really began in 2011, when I finally made the decision to make a long-term commitment to my blog. I began to post on a daily basis and blogging became a part of my daily routine. Two years have passed since then and The Dark Side of Beauty has become an integral part of my life that I could not imagine being without! My blog was certainly not built in a day, and it was not easy getting started. But all the effort I put in was completely worth it.

Even two years after its beginning, The Dark Side of Beauty is still improving. I hope to keep blogging and keep creating a wonderful and safe community for all of us who have the same interest in makeup and beauty.


Thank you all so much for visiting my blog ♥
