Hello, my name is Emily. It is nice to meet you! I am a makeup artist, beauty writer and college student. I currently work as a Beauty Advisor for a popular US cosmetic company. In the future, I would like to be a celebrity/editorial makeup artist. In college, I study special effects (SFX) makeup and skincare. I live near Kansas City, Missouri (The Heart of America) with my parents. My mom and I joined Postcrossing a year ago and almost always send postcards together. I’m happy we share this hobby.
In my free time, I enjoy drawing and painting. I mostly paint women's faces and figures. Sometimes I'll be inspired by a postcard and try to recreate it, which is quite fun to do. I play the ukulele. We have a beautiful green parakeet (budgie), her name is Sunny. She is very smart, curious, funny and sweet. You can see her in my avatar. We have recently been rescued by our black, miniature poodle Cosmo. He is the sweetest, so loving and brightens our days!!
Any postcard is welcome, but if you are in need of some inspiration: makeup, poodles, art, handmade cards (I love to send and receive these!), postcards from/of museums, women's portraits, fashion and fashion accessories, daisies, butterflies, humor, parakeets and parrots, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jane Austen and Leonid Afremov. If you are from Russia, I would absolutely love to receive Viktoria Kirdy postcards.
I really enjoy reading what you write on the back of postcards. Feel free to write about anything, from your daily life to how you store your postcards to makeup trends in your city/country. If you don't know what to send me, send me a card that you would like to receive. I would prefer to not receive cards with nudity.
My final words to you - in a world where you can be anything, be kind.
