About Me

Hi there! My name’s Brooke, and I’m the creator and editor-in-chief of Brooke’s Beauty Bazaar.

I’m a cosmetologist who’s suffered from more than her fair share of bad skin days, and now I’m on a mission to spread the word about fungal acne.

Why fungal acne?

I suffered from severe cystic acne for 17 years of my life, and it was hell. Nothing could ever keep my skin clear – not help from dermatologists, not prescription drugs, antibiotics, topicals, a clean diet, nor a natural approach to skin care.

In fact, I had resolved that I would always have bad skin. It was a fact of life I would just have to deal with.

And then, in 2019 I discovered a nasty little secret about a yeast (read: fungus) called malassezia, and for the first time in my life – my skin was clear without any expensive products, prescriptions, or harsh chemicals. Read about it here.

But I’m not going to keep this secret from you. On my blog & Youtube Channel – I spill all the details on exactly how I used my knowledge of malassezia folliculitis (fancy name for fungal acne) to clear my skin once & for all!

And now I’m here to prove that clear skin + amazing makeup can coexist!

I post new Youtube videos about this topic every Tuesday & Friday, so make sure you’re subscribed over there. And while you’re at it – follow me on Instagram for even more fun.

I also love pop culture & anything that sparkles, so you’ll probably find occasional posts or references to fashion, travel, broadways musicals, NYC, Freddie Mercury, Diana Vreeland, & Anna Wintour.
