honestly i can't remember who told me about LJ it was someone from makeupalley.com i think.
Could have been marimariposa telling me about the makeup communities here.
I used this generally for makeup looks and makeup stuff. NOW i use it for everything.
I loved it so much last summer i bought a perm account when they offered them.
I've been a member here for a couple years and i've only increased my usage of it.
