About Me

About Petra, author of The Makeup Equation, blogger, wife, and mommy.

Hi!  Welcome to my world!  Please let me tell you a little bit about The Makeup Equation.

I have been blogging for 6 years, but not on this blog.  I am the author of a Latin cooking blog that I started in 2011 called Postres de La Cipota.  This blog was inspired out of love for my husband of ten years.  

I used this blog to share my adventures of learning to cook traditional food from El Salvador.  Postres de La Cipota was featured on NBC Latino in 2012, which you can view here: Food blogs we love: Postres de La Cipota.

Fast forward to the summer of 2016, and I started having the desire to start a new women's lifestyle blog.  I wanted an outlet to share some other really big parts of my life that I couldn't share on my cooking blog.  I wanted to share my passion for makeup, beauty, skincare, fashion, and all things hair.  I wanted a space to talk openly about my daily walk as a stay at home mom and wife.  I also wanted to tell my story of hope: how Jesus rescued me when I was 19, and how He has greatly blessed me since coming to know and follow Him.  For all these reasons, I decided to create a new blog, and The Makeup Equation was born.

My mission at The Makeup Equation is a simple but powerful one.  My mission is to help every woman that finds my blog slay their life.  I write on a wide variety of topics, so there is the potential to slay many areas of your life.   I want to help every woman that finds my blog slay their life, no matter where they may be in their life equation at the moment.

If you cannot tell already, I am madly in love with makeup.  I love makeup because it is the ultimate confidence booster!

Lastly, I love to hear from my readers and followers.  Tell me who you are and how you found my site.  Tell me where you're from.  Let me know what type of articles you'd like me to write about and what interests you.  The more I know about what my readers and followers are interested in, the more I can write helpful content.  I love and appreciate each and every one of my readers and followers, you all are the reason why I write and do what I do.  Thank you to all of you, each of you are beautiful and loved. 

I hope you enjoy The Makeup Equation!
