Levitate (v.): to rise; especially in seeming defiance of gravitation.
Welcome to Levitate Beauty! I’m Becca and I’m a New Yorker working on the corporate side of the beauty industry. I love playing with all things skin care and makeup and, to me, there’s nothing more satisfying than finding the perfect serum to battle my acne or stumbling upon the darkest, most smudge-proof liquid liner.
If you love reading about skincare products and ingredients, you’ll be right at home here. I’ve dealt with breakouts nearly my entire life, and my stress levels didn’t help. Up until a year ago, I was in school and working full time. I didn’t have enough time to eat and sleep, let alone enough time to de-stress. But since graduating, I’ve made myself more of a priority. Decompressing, relaxing, and getting more serious about my skincare routine has become an absolute must for me, and my skin has improved significantly as a result.
But don’t get me wrong, my skin is still far from perfect. There are some days I feel comfortable enough to leave my apartment without foundation, but on other days I still get breakouts, or have dry skin, and sometimes my face is an oily mess.
You’ll never find touched up or edited selfies on Levitate Beauty, because the purpose of this blog is to lift each other up and to lift up ourselves. To not only work toward our skincare/makeup goals and experiment with fun products, but also to become more comfortable and accepting of ourselves as we are. While we may not be able to control every aspect of our skin, we can control the way we see and feel about ourselves.
Through this blog I hope to review new products I’ve tried, give you the low-down on popular skincare ingredients, and provide some general self-care tips.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you follow me through the rest of my journey!
