If you have enough beauty products to fill a backpack, you are welcome here.

I’m glad you’re here. You are just the person I’m trying to reach if you:

  1. Are trying to find out what “contouring” is.
  2. Want to know what’s best to clean out those pores around your nose.
  3. Have a friend that’s told you try a new kind of makeup, but you want to know more before you commit.
  4. Are tired of hiding your dirty little secret. You’re a cosmetic hoarder.

I aim to help you decide what is worth adding to your collection, and what isn’t. In the future, I’ll do some how-to’s on makeup.

Beauty Backpack is for anyone interested in beauty products. From run of the mill drug store cosmetics, to the big brand names, and some brands you may not know of. I have no issues with reviewing any kind of product. Actually I aspire to review what hasn’t been reviewed yet anywhere else on the internet. Tough task I know, and I am open to any suggestions of what to try next.

About Me

I’m no make-up artist, but I am an artist. My name is Shonna Gray and I studied Graphic Design at Morehead State University, graduating in 2011. I never much cared about my appearance until High School, where I started dating the man that is now my husband. At that point I started caring how good I did my make-up, just for him. It’s silly to think about, but he got my passion started on trying to figure out the best way to put on eyeliner, and find the right shade of lipstick.

As I am quickly approaching my thirties, I’m beginning to experiment in the right skincare and haircare as well. That’s not something I had to worry about in the youthful years, but I’m taking it in good stride and using it as an opportunity to tell you what to expect and what works for me.

In addition to being a beauty fan, I’m also into reading, drawing, writing, a newly discovered love of hiking, and beating the husband at his video games. That’s right. I’m a gamer girl. Have no shame.
