My Makeup Story: Tara Baker @tmbmakeup
Hello, friends and happy Monday! Today I have my story to share. This is the last story I will be posting on YMS - at least for now! Since my Women’s Studies class is ending, I have to figure out what I’m doing with this blog. I want to thank everyone so much for supporting me! I love you all!!

Your Makeup Story: Tell us a little bit about yourself!
My name is Tara Baker, a 20-year-old self-taught artist from South Jersey. Makeup is something I am passionate about and love, but I have plans of being a filmmaker and screenwriter. I love colorful makeup - the more colors the better! Avant-garde and special effects are my favorite forms of makeup to practice because I find them to be the most fun and expressive.
YMS: When did you first start wearing makeup?
I’ve been playing around with makeup since such a young age! I used to play with my mom’s makeup in the bathroom and steal my sister’s lip gloss when I was young. Around eighth grade, I took a big liking to black eyeliner and eyeshadow - a phase which my mother, begrudgingly, I’m sure, let me wear out in its own time. During my senior year of high school, I had to do my own makeup for my prom and so, I started looking up all kinds of YouTube tutorials and just became obsessed! After I graduated, my obsession with makeup really took off.
