Well well well, look who made it to their fifth birthday! Five years ago today I introduced the Makeup Museum, and I must say I'm a little shocked I stuck with it as long as I have. While there have been posting gaps here and there for good reasons (wedding planning) and bad (crippling running injury) for the most part I've been pretty consistent.
Let's take a look back with some stats.
Number of posts to date: 708.
Number of exhibitions: 16.
Number of times I've mentioned the coffee table book, website overhaul and physical space for the Museum: approximately 3,000.
Number of times I've made progress on any of the above: zero.
Number of staff members added since the Museum started: nine.
Now for some collection highlights. I picked 5 of my favorite pieces/collections from the past 5 years. These aren't ALL of my favorites by any means but I just chose five in keeping with the 5-year theme. :) Here they are in chronological order.
Shu Uemura Tokyo Kamon Girls cleansing oils (2009):
Dior Tailleur Bar palette (2010):
Chanel Byzantine palette (2011):
Paul & Joe Meow! collection (2012):
NARS Andy Warhol collection (2012):
Happy blogiversary to the Makeup Museum! Here's to another five years (or more) of talking to myself. :P
p.s. The fun isn't over yet - I'll be doing a giveaway to further celebrate, so stay tuned for details. ;)
