Lilura Begiak: What's in a Name?
"Lilura begiak" is a Basque phrase meaning "fascinated by the eyes."
The first beauty item I ever owned was a pale blue eyeshadow that I wore every day in sixth grade. From there, I collected so many eye colors that they took up an entire drawer in my desk. Certain colors, when I wore them, made me feel sassy, or mysterious, or demure. While my artistic friends painted, my face became my canvas. The eyes, it is said, are the windows to the soul; they are the focal point of our face, and they can, with a single glance, captivate and fascinate.

Though my first passion is for eyes, I am trained in both makeup and skincare and love every aspect of beauty (though I can't do my hair to save my life, hence my recent pixie cut!) I'm incredibly excited to share my thoughts and tips with you, and to hear your feedback, opinions, and tricks of your own. Let's all be fascinating together!
