Anyway, its a bit strange how I came to love makeup so much. Up until a few years ago I hardly wore any! All I would wear was a bit of concealer and mascara, BUT then my best friend started sending me youtube videos of girls that did tutorials with pretty and colorful shadows. Slowly but surely I started buying products here and there, and now I have this crazy collection of palettes, foundations, blushes, etc. In 2010 I had the opportunity to take some makeup courses at a nearby community college, and it was so much fun! I took some basic and advanced courses and it really helped me learn some great makeup techniques and applying skills. I am still constantly learning though, there's always something new to learn in the makeup and beauty world!
Currently I do makeup on family, friends, and as I get referrals. I know I will continue to improve as I go, and hopefully one day get to do it full time! My best friend and I hope to start a business soon and be able to use our makeup skills. However, I would also love to start my own nonprofit in maybe 5 - 10 years, as I also have a Master's in Public Administration and want to be able to use my degree as well.
In the mean time I'll be having fun blogging my little heart away ... Thanks for stopping by!
