Happy birthday, America! Are you guys enjoying the fireworks and BBQ?
Today, let me take some time to walk you down the memory lane (not Wisteria Lane, ah!) The past 12 months was like a roller coaster ride to me and thank to this blog, I'm still as sane as I can be :) From a handful of readers, My Makeup Blog has now grown to become the authority of mineral makeup, according to Technorati. On top of that, I've met so many sweet and wonderful ladies who have the same passion for makeup as I am.
So here it is, The best of My Makeup Blog, 2008-2009 version:
June, 08: first post ever! My Favorite: Clinique Almost Lipstick Black Honey
July, 08: review of LashBlast mascara and mineral makeup week.
August, 08: easiest way to get the smokey eyed look, ever! Also, a review of Maybelline Colossall mascara. We got a face-lift around this time, as well.
September, 08: stash organization, egg masques, and I got a new haircut from Aveda.
October, 08: green Politically Pretty look to support the 2008 election, fell in love with Adorned with Grace foundation, and a blood-sucking Halloween FOTD.
November, 08: did some how-tos on face contouring and highlighting.
December, 08: my home-made eye makeup remover formula revealed!
January, 09: got some gifts from the Aloha State and found some nice face glows at the drugstore.
February, 09: loved the finishing powders from Everyday Minerals and went to the Hello Kitty event at MAC counter.
March, 09: showed you how to wash your brushes. Also, all my makeup brushes became the stars of the month.
April, 09: found Eyeko cream, did two really cute and bright looks (She's a Doll FOTD and Butterfly EOTD.)
May, 09: discovered some amazing and affordable brushes from EcoTools. Also, I started writing reviews on makeup and beauty books.

To my U.S readers: I hope you're having a wonderful July 4th. To all of my readers, it's been a lot of fun and let's hope for a bigger and better year ahead for My Makeup Blog
