My name is Robyn,
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 see 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 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, that loves makeup, is the last to leave any dancefloor and has an irrational phobia of Bannana’s (It even took a lot for me to write that word)
Much Love & Speak Soon
