Hi everyone and welcome to my very first post as a beauty blogger.
Here I will be posting everything that I experience in the world of beauty including makeup tips and tricks, holy grails and epic fails, as well as life experiences from every day as well as my modeling and beauty career.
Now that we got the purpose of the blog out of the way, I want to introduce myself.
My name is Jonathan Lee and I am a violinist, at this moment a pre-medical student, a model, and a makeup artist.
I have been playing the violin since age 5 and have continued ever since as it is a means for me to calm and center myself from time to time as you all know that the path of becoming a doctor can be quite stressful at times. Add to the fact that I also plan to add modeling and makeup to my careers and you have the recipe for balding and yelling at the grandkids at age 23.
I understand that most of you probably think that I am wasting my abilities with makeup by going into medical school and that my parents probably forced me to get into the sciences since I was a child. On the contrary, makeup is really just a hobby just like how some artists draw and sketch to relax. The same rules apply to me with the only difference being that other artists draw on paper while my canvas is a person’s face. I am actually quite the nerd with the sciences being my favorite subjects to study and learn about during the quarter or when relaxing at home. I find it quite relaxing as well to learn about how the world works from string theory to astrophysics as well as chemistry and biology.
Since I mentioned makeup and modeling let me tell you how I got into the industry.
I started modeling in August 2017 so around a year before making this post. A good friend of mine and I were talking about modeling one day and how it would be a fun experience for the both of us to try it out, little did I know that she was actually being serious about trying it out. So one day, she signed both of us up for a modeling event and surprised me with the event which definitely caught me off guard and after 30 minutes of persuading me, I finally caved and decided to join her in the event.
We got dressed did our makeup and off we went to get our photos taken which happened to be the most fun that I had in quite a while and ever since then I’ve been modeling.
The story of my makeup is not as joyful or lighthearted as my other stories as it comes from a place of pain and heartbreak.
When I started makeup at age 14, I was dressing up for a Halloween costume party. My parents did not think anything of it at the time as I was just getting dressed up for a party.
However, after they noticed that I was wearing makeup more and more frequently and creating more elaborate designs, they started to question my sexuality.
At age 16 is when I decided to apply as a running start student in Bellevue college where I found out about the LGBT center. This was also the place where I met a man that helped me discover my sexuality and, excuse my corniness, express who I was as a person as up till then I was actively trying to mask my sexuality.
After giving my parents the news a series of events that I will not disclose occurred where, for a long period of time, I was unable to interact with my parents properly. However, after a couple of years, my parents and I were able to come back together and understand what was going on in my world.
So that is a little snapshot of how my past was and what my interests are.
Again I want to thank all of you who have taken the time to read my very first post and hope that you will stick around and see where my journey will take me.
I will see you soon and until then, be the baddie with magick touch.
