I recently was able to create myself a space in our house just for me and I am loving it. It has a door, a sink, lighting, my camera, a place to put my computer and all my makeup. Yes! It was a bathroom at one time but I swear we ripped the toilet out. My husband laughs because here I sit in this teeny room maybe 10'x5' and I have it all! I even have space on my desk for a little night cap if needed.
Because of my new little room I have been able to work on makeup looks more and really promote myself with that. I wanted to be a makeup artist for photoshoots and the entertainment business all my life but the one thing that stopped me was, I didn't want to move to where all the work is. I am just not a California girl sadly. I focused more on hair for the first 10 years of my career and I do love hair! The best thing about having both is I can do all the artistry in a photoshoot, and I am a bit of a control freak so that is great!
Here are a few shots I just did the past 2 days.
I have some pretty hooded eyes and because of that I can't wear all the beautiful popular looks right now but hey I still try. What I need to do is round up some friends and use their non hooded eyes to play around with. You can jump over to my gallery picture to see more of my work, I particularly love a lot of the stuff I have done with the roller derby girls. The events are always such a blast too!
Now for my secret wish list.
1. Anastasia* Beverly Hills Brow Pro Palette. When I wish, I wish big dang it. I have been using powders to define my brows but I am finding in my pictures it is just not enough. All of their products are just getting rave reviews. Add this one to the dream cart. *I don't know about you but I cannot hear the name Anastasia without thinking Anastasia Beaverhousen!
Next on the drooling wish list. Sugarpill's loose eyeshadows. This one is called Asylum and I love it but I have only tried the Decora sample that was sent with my palettes. I seriously still have the sample and I dole it out in teeny bits. God forbid someone sneezes. They are all so beautiful though and I have seen many amazing looks done with the Goldilux.
I think that might actually complete my wishlist for the night, but that doesn't mean I won't be dreaming up more!
Sort of an abrupt ending but I am off to spend some family time, thank you for stopping by and kee
what's this for?
I find so many things I love out on The Internet and I want a place to share it. Trends, tips, and hopefully some fun stuff too!
