Hello my name is Victoria Carpenter and I love all things makeup and beauty. If anyone knows me they know that I have a tell it like it is attitude and I don’t hold back. I have always loved makeup, skincare, and all things beauty since I was 13 years old when my Mom took my twin sis and I to Dillards for our first makeup lesson. I have always wanted to start a blog about everyday issues we women deal with and product reviews on beauty and skincare lines high end and drugstore. A little bit about me I grew up in a family of five kids my twin sister Annie and I are the oldest. She is a contributor on my blog as well. I grew up in Kansas most of my life and graduated from Washburn University with a BA in Mass Media emphasis in Broadcasting. I worked in radio for a while and currently do marketing for a healthcare company. I have been married to my husband Matt for 8 years and we have two dogs Kido and Bella that keep us plenty busy. Welcome to Beyond The Makeup Brush and enjoy! Please email me if you have any questions or comments or would like me to review a certain beauty product.

Along with sharing makeup and beauty reviews and tips there are a few causes that are near and dear to my heart.  National Brain Tumor Society and “Awareness for AJ.” Also anything to do with animal welfare and local pet charities/shelters an Veterans rights/homelessness. Hit me up if you would like to get involved with any of these causes.
