As I sat down to write an email to a friend who asked for some makeup advice, I realized she wouldn’t want the monstrously long email I ended up composing. I decided to transform what started as a personal email into a public blog intended for friends who want to discuss all things makeup with me. As an unapologetic disclaimer: this is not the blog of a beauty guru or expert or vendor. I’m a student-enthusiast who documents her vanity with a pronounced interest in asserting the validity of generating everyday inspirations, curiosities and experiments with makeup and beauty. Vampid, for now just outlining the beauty basics and preferences of a single killer babe, aspires to articulate a makeup manifesto, one that convinces you that the beauty lifestyle is about much more than what might be snubbed and condemned as ever-encroaching vapid, vampic femininity.
