prettymom.org is a website where i share my passion for beauty and makeups. it's mostly about reviewing and using affordable products though sometimes i may splurge. i do makeup looks that are simple and wearable but sometimes i'll try something wild.

makeup is a hobby developed since i was young, starting from watching my mother putting on makeup. i'm not an expert nor working in this industry. i do not attempt to teach. i still have a lot to learn. i'm just sharing things i like, what works for me, and hope these will be useful and helpful to others. 

please do not be harsh on me if you find flaws in my makeup. i'm just an ordinary woman and not makeup artist. i'm not perfect.

even though this blog is named 'prettymom', i do not claim myself as pretty. i'm just an ordinary woman who likes looking good and pretty, which also helps to boost my confidence and self esteem. please don't give me 'beauty is from within' lecture, if you read this blog you know what it's all about.

about me

i was once crazy about lipsticks and had bucketful collection. i had to try everything new in makeup and skin care. nowadays with family and kids and mortgage, i have to watch what and how i spend and try to keep my routine simple and economical.
