So this is it huh,
My first ever blog post!
I’ve wanted to do this for some time as I write posts on my Facebook page but you know what it’s like, each post pushes the previous one further and further down the page and means you have to scroll for 4832 hours just to find the one you wanted.
So this is it, my blog! I am going to be using this like a diary as I want to be as open and honest as humanly possible. I want to talk about makeup, acne, insecurities, skin care and everything in between sprinkled on top with some real and raw honesty about the stuff I wish other people would talk about but they just don’t.
Oh I almost forgot video’s! I am going to be doing some makeup and skin care video’s in here too!
My aim is to do a new post every week but depending on work schedules etc. I may have to miss the odd week every now and then.
By the way, if there is anything you want me to talk about you can send in a request using the contact us form on here with the subject line: “Blog Request”
Anyway, I suppose I should probably tell you a bit about me, for those of you that don’t know.
I am Robyn and I am the founder of COABE.
I started this company because I have a hormonal condition known as PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) some of my symptoms include Cystic Acne, rapid weight gain, difficulty loosing weight due to insulin resistance.
Team this up with my dark under eye circles and Enlarged pores and it makes for big ol cooking pot of insecurities.
I have been obsessed by makeup since I was around 12-13 years old. (If you can count using turquoise eyeshadow and so much mascara it looked like terranchela legs)
I studied Beauty Therapy and Makeup at college so I picked up a lot of the basic makeup training there but that really wasn’t enough for me and my skin conditions so I became obsessed with researching and learning as much as I could about hiding my “imperfections” – I really hate that word by the way!
I know how depressing it can feel when you have skin conditions and all you want to do is hide it from the world, I also know how frustrating it can be when it seems impossible to hide it without layering inches upon inches of makeup on your face leaving you looking and feeling like a cakey mess.
It’s because of this that I want to give back, Everyone should be able to see how incredibly gorgeous they are and se their beauty regardless of their skin conditions but I know that for most people their Skin Conditions/insecurities can often become their sole focus and effects the way they see themselves and their confidence.
I want to teach as many women as possible that it is OK to have skin conditions or “imperfections” – urgh that word again!, we are human, it would be a pretty creepy world if we were all walking around like airbrushed clones. I want to teach women how to cover their insecurities when they need to so that they can stop focusing on them and start seeing how beautiful they are. Whether it’s Acne, rosacea, dark under eye circles or enlarged pores. It can all be disguised and it’s easy once you know how....I promise.
So that is what I am here to do, show you everything I have learnt over these years so you can embrace your insecurities, get your sexy back and start feeling Skin Confident.
So anyway that’s my why, hopefully you will get to know me a little better through my blog and social media but all in all I am a 33 year old wife and mummy to my two fur babies, Pablo the English Bulldog and Prinny (the devil re-incarnated) cat, I love makeup, I am always the last to leave any dancefloor and I have an irrational phobia of Banana’s (It even took a lot for me to write that word)
Well that’s it, short and sweet, but I did it! MY FIRST EVER BLOG POST!
Much Love & Speak Soon
