Welcome to my blog! Here I will attempt to create a blog with useful information in a very candid way. I definitely don't claim to know it all, but I have learned a few things on the way.
I've been doing makeup since the early 90s. Back when the New York Club Kids were hitting the talk show circuit. You know the classics, Donahue, Sally Jesse Raphael, Ricky Lake..(what ever happened to Ricky?) I was fascinated by their funky outlandish hair and makeup!
I've always been artistic and love to create art. I self taught myself many tips and tricks over the years and then after working for MAC for 5 years my skills skyrocketed. After doing makeup for almost 20 years now, the best advice that I can give after all this time is HAVE FUN!
Yup thats it! Have fun! Makeup isn't supposed to be so serious and stressful like I know it is for many. If what you're doing comes out bad... wipe it off and start over. Practice makes perfect so be kind to yourself and don't be so serious!
To me this is the core of any good artist, even if you don't think you are, we are all capable of creating something beautiful as long as you are having fun doing it.
