WHERE DOES THE NAME TWOSIXANDBRUSH COME FROM?
I am asked quite often “what’s with the name?”… what they are really saying is “It’s a dumbass name… why did you choose it?”
When I was a little girl… for as long as I can remember… until about 6 or 7 years of age… I actually had three imaginary friends. They were as real to me as anything else in the world.
COUSIN PETER + PUPPY + TWOSIX
So I named my blog after my imaginary friend.
I have no idea where those names came from … If you asked 4 year old Becca she would have told you “well that’s what they told me their names were!”
They were a massive part of my early childhood. Just ask my parents.
TWOSIX was the one who caused the most trouble from what I am told.
It only seemed natural to name my blog after the skills it takes as a makeup artist – Imagination and Skills with Tools… Hence:
TWOSIX & BRUSH
TWOSIX might just sound like two numbers to you… but to me it represents my childhood, my imagination and maybe a bit of shenanigans.
