Just for Fun!

Happy Thursday Lovelies :),
Can you believe December is already here? This year has flown by! I’ve only got three makeup class sessions to go and I’ll be a certified MUA! I’ve loved every minute of this course and I’m super bummed that it’s almost over. I was blessed to get an amazing instructor and a great group of girls to have as classmates. Seriously, I should have done this years ago. As part of the course, we have a final project on the last class day. My instructor has informed us that we’ll be creating an anime/Japanese animation/Harajuku inspired look. Last night, we got to play with paints as a way of getting familiar with the colors and textures. I didn’t quite get to finish my look, but it’s more of a rough draft. I just thought it was cool to share with you guys and dolls :). Pardon the crappy picture quality, all I had was my Blackberry and it is no good for detailed shots.



Thanks for being my model, Geneva! 🙂

What do you think?

Makeup Homework Pt. 1

Hello Beauties!
I hope you’ve all had a great weekend :). Mine has been pretty relaxing, thankfully. I have a girls trip to Vegas next weekend, so I’m saving my energy and money for then lol. Makeup school is coming along beautifully, I really love the classes and my instructor, Susie. We’ve covered basic foundation, transitioned into contouring, learned about eyebrows, and we’ve just started working on eyeshadow technique/styles.
One of the hardest things about this class is learning new ways to apply makeup. After years and years of playing with cosmetics and more recent freelance work, I’ve developed my own way of doing everything, so I’ve had a though time trying to relearn what I thought I already knew. I want to get the most out of this experience and Susie’s has asked that we try doing things her way; she taught MAC makeup artists for 10 years and has a lot of experience in the industry, so I know I have a lot to learn from her and feel really thankful to have gotten her as my instructor. I’ve been feeling like a righty trying to write with their left hand, but it’s coming along, and it’s also opened my eyes to new ways of looking at light and color. I’ll be posting some of my homework and practice looks to track my progress throughout the course. Here’s a quick look I put together yesterday using her basic eyeshadow placement/application technique.
