2013 – A year in review




Welcome to 2014 – I hope it brings you much happiness and joy! 2013 was a very challenging year for me, as I understand it has been for many of you. 2014 is set to be fabulous, with an addition to my family due in February, my baby girl going to big school for the first time, a return to full-time blogging and some exciting things that I have been planning for over a year and actively working on throughout the last month.

Before I launch headlong into the New Year here on Makeup Utopia, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of the most popular articles on Makeup Utopia in 2013. Not all of these were published in 2013, but they seemed to capture the interest of readers, new and old.
