Beauty by Arielle: About


Welcome to my little piece on the internet! From my blog title I'm sure you know by now my name is Arielle. I'm from Illinois but I currently reside in Indiana. I'm a Social Worker in the mental health field with a love of all things beauty! 

For as long as I can remember I have poured myself into magazines pining over beauty products and soaking in tips. As a preteen, I used to save up my change to buy the latest shampoo or lipgloss. As I entered adulthood, I found myself spending hours on blogs and YouTube reading about makeup.

In October 2011, I decided to combine my love of written word and my obsession with products when I realized friends and family were turning to me for my opinion on beauty products. That's when Beauty by Arielle was born!

In 2013 some really exciting things happened to this little blog! First, I was chosen as a finalist in Allure Magazine's Beauty Blogger of the Year contest, then one of the 50 Best Beauty Blogs on Beauty High.

While my heart will always be with drugstore products, I do pick up some high end must haves. I am constantly on the lookout for new products, tips and DIYs to share with my readers! I also get my fill from box subscriptions or reading other blogs. Beauty by Arielle has and will continue to be my creative outlet to write, photograph and dabble in graphic design. With the blog, my love for cosmetics (and my collection!) has grown.
