Happy 1st YEAR Blog Anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy 1st YEAR Blog Anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!

We made it to one year!!! Yippee!!! Can you believe it???!!!

I started this blog January 25, 2010 with my first post on The Elusive Eyebrow. My follow up posts for the first month was a mix of swatches and looks and even a review. I never expected the blog to grow to where it is today...andI know many people say that...but seriously...this was really meant as a makeup diary of sorts.

I wanted to keep track of my looks and swatches for future reference and for anyone who wanted to see swatches of certain products. I used to share my looks on Makeupgeek and Specktra anyway so why not have them all in one place so I could always look back and see what I did and what products I used.

But now it has grown to my own little makeup community with great members and friends! WOW! We are now at 1050 subscribers and 440 posts to date! And quite frankly, without your support and love I would never have gotten to this point.

So I want to THANK YOU ALL for a FABULOUS FANCY YEAR! Cheers to lots more! YAY!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Happy Anniversary!
    For more years to come.
    I'll be here :-)

  2. Congratulations!!! I wish you many more years of continued blog success!!

  4. YAAAAAY!!! congrats!! n can i just say that for me, personally, this blog has been my go to blog since November... i come here BEFORE i go to makeupgeek, before temptalia, before spektra... i try to recreate alot of ur looks and when i do i ALWAYS get compliments at work (my workplace is just about as flexible as urs when it comes to makeup, dress code, etc.)... and when they ask how i do my eyes so beautifully *rolls eyes*(its never THAT gud, lol) i say, " i watch tina from thefancyface.." and show them ur blog... I REAALLY DO! im actually gonna do one of ur past looks (maybe the red dragon one, or the iced green tea look) for an event im attending in a few weeks! YAY! ive seen a few critiscisms of ur work on another site basically sayin that ur makeup was too gaudy or bold or draggish or whatever (and im sure u no which one im referring to) and i jus shake my head and think, wow, this girl must be REALLY, REALLY BOOOOOORING!.. I LOVE UR LOOKS! 98% of them id wear on a regular basis if i cud!... NEWHOOO, from a true fan i have ta say THANK U SOOOOOO much for sharing ur looks and reviews and collections... they have truly helped and guided me on my makeup journey! again congratulations and may u have MANY, MANY more to come...

    P.S. sorry, sometimes i tend to ramble... oops.

    Thanks Mary Elizabeth. I really don't have any tips. I have no idea how I got this far really. I just love what I do and I guess people can feel that passion too. Just have fun and don't just go after subscribers. Your love will shine thru and people will gravitate towards that.

    Thanks Arezu my luv!

  19. Gaudy, bold, draggish ??? I learnt some new vocabulary today but in the other hand, I do not think they really applied here. I love the colors and the creativity of the looks on this blog. So keep on going dear blog and happy birthday to you !

  20. Tina!

    I've been with ya since March 2010. I just created a blog so I could follow you, but I always had your bloggy bookmarked.

    You are nice to your subscribers and you do amazing things with makeup!

    Thank You!
