Hello, my name is Arianne. I’m from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and this is my little beauty corner on the Internetz. Glitter Geek is a beauty blog driven by my passion towards everything makeup and beauty, and is my excuse for buying so much makeup since 2007. 😉

As a makeup enthusiast (it sounds better than addict) and a makeup artist, I have tried many products that work for me and yet many more that are just awful. This blog is where you’ll find all about my favourite things.

Besides makeup and beauty, I love cats (I want to hug all of them, but I can’t). I live with my husband (also known as Mr. Geeks) and my cat Scherbatsky, who sometimes makes appearances here. 🙂 We are one small cuddly family.

I love talking about anything beauty-related and trying new products. If you are a PR representative and would like me to try your product, please refer to our Editorial Policy for more information.

If you have some beauty-related questions or just want to chat, send an email to arianne (at) glittergeek (dot) ca and/or follow me on Twitter (@TheGlitterGeek).

Oh, and in case you’re curious, all recent photos are taken in diffused artificial light with Olympus OM-D E-M1 in RAW mode, and are processed in Aperture for levels and white balance.

Disclaimer: Blemishes and stray hairs are retouched unless I’m doing skincare or base makeup (foundation / concealer) reviews. Because I prefer yucky blemishes not to be displayed to the world, that’s why.
