Hello World

My name is Ciara, but on the internet I'm called Chicks. This will be my first blog. I've always wanted a blog, but I didn't know what to blog about. Now I've found something!
A few months ago, I did a makeup course (ITEC qualification). The problem is, I'm not yet confident in my skills so I'm reluctant to apply for jobs. I've been practicing a lot on myself, to get different styles of makeup down, and get better at general application. I'm improving, even though I'm not working on other people much. Well, yesterday I put blue liquid eyeliner on my husband. It was very tidy, I was quite happy. I've started to build my makeup kit, so I've been buying a whole lot of makeup lately. I thought that I'd post reviews of the things that I've been buying, like many others do. I'm unemployed right now, so I'm working off a pretty tight budget too. I try to find good products and pay as little for them as possible, so if you read regularly you might be able to find some good deals! :D

Besides reviews, I'd like to post makeup looks that I've been practicing, maybe even some I come up with myself if I'm feeling creative. I'd like to get into nail art, so maybe I'll blog about that at some point. I've recently mastered painting the nails on my left hand and I'm awfully proud ^_^

So that's my plan for now. I have a some other interests too, like watching TV shows, playing/following Starcraft 2, and crochet, but I'm not sure if I'll blog much about those things..I'm not sure if I should make this a purely beauty blog or if I should make it miscellaneous. We'll see how things go.

I also have no idea about blog stuff, like format and templates, or how to make the thing on the right hand side all categorised and easy to navigate..So if it all looks like a mess for a while I'm very sorry, and I'll learn how to do it better.
