Making The Maybelline NYFW Dream Happen

I always believe in sticking to things that work. As far as makeup goes, I've always had a close affinity with Maybelline. Ever since my mom felt I was old enough to start wearing makeup, I remember my first ever face powder was Maybelline's Clear Smooth powder. Since I've always had sensitive skin, I try not to experiment on different stuff. I mean if something works, why bother changing, right? So even until now, I still go to Maybelline for many of my makeup needs - from eyeliners to mascara to lippies and more recently, Maybelline's NYFW collection.

Whatever the occasion, Maybelline has always been a go-to product in helping me look my best. And so it seems only fitting that if I were to fulfill one of my life goals as a fashion and beauty blogger, that Maybelline should be a huge, huge part of it!

I'm finally a few steps closer to making my New York Fashion Week dream a reality thanks to Maybelline! But what exactly makes me the most deserving to be there with brand ambassador, Georgina Wilson, covering the most important fashion event?

It's really easy to say that I'm a hard-worker, I'm creative, I'm confident with my own style, and I'm knowledgeable when it comes to fashion and beauty. I know I am all these things. And I'm sure most of the other bloggers feel the same way about themselves, too. But what I feel sets me apart from everyone else is that I'm very passionate about everything that I do. I never go into anything half-heartedly. If I decide to do something, I put my whole heart and effort into it and leave no stone unturned to make things happen.

Ever since I started blogging, one of my main goals was to go to NYFW. Every time that time of the year comes, I just keep refreshing the feeds of my favorite fashion icons and international bloggers just to see their latest NYFW posts and I think to myself that one day, I'm going to be there, too! In fact, when I first got that email from Maybelline about the contest, the first thing I thought was, "This is it. This contest was made for me. This is my chance and I'm going to MAKE IT HAPPEN!" 

I really feel like with that kind of passion burning inside me, I can be whatever I want and have to be to make all my dreams a reality. That passion drives me to work ten times harder and push myself to be the best I can be. 

On a side note, I love Georgina! I love her style and her classy, elegant aura, and have always been in awe of her legendary beauty. What can I say, I'm a fan! It would be a cinch to cover NYFW with her. I just know we'd be instant BFFs and we'd have a blast together!

How about you? What are you willing to do to make all your dreams come true? Just a few tips from me? Just be yourself, know your strengths and use them to your advantage! Jump at every opportunity that comes your way because you'll never know what doors will open from them. And most importantly, work hard and never slack! Find ways to grow and evolve into the best you can be no matter what industry you are in! 

Just like what I'm trying to do with this chance Maybelline has given me! And hopefully, it will all pay off in the best way possible!
