Who’s ready to welcome 2018 ? I am !!! 2017 was a great year and I saw lots of professional and personal growth I’m hoping 2018 brings more growth for my blog and my makeup artistry business, which I have to say brings me so much joy! I’m m so happy I found this passion of makeup + blogging , albeit even if it was later on in my life. Truly I believe that if you have a dream and it makes you happy you should chase it at all costs!
I used to always worry about failing in this industry. At first when I started doing makeup I had a small kit with all drugstore brand makeup ( Maybelline masacara is life people!!) I was practising on my sisters, mom and friends and I didn’t have any paying clients and I was ok with that. But then it came to a point where I really wanted to get paid as a makeup artist because I had invested so much time, effort and money into my skills, so one day I answered an “ad” on facebook for a bride looking for a makeup artist for her wedding which was the next day as her makeup artist backed out on her last minute. On a whim, I PM’d her and she responded back with “let me see some of your work”. I sent her some pics and she liked them and booked me. I was ecstatic, she was super super sweet and the appointment went well and I couldn’t have been prouder of myself !!
I have this passion that I love so much and this year is the year I grow my skills and my client base, god willing of course! There is no time to worry about failure ! There are so many people I admire in this industry of blogging + makeup artistry and they all started with a dream and passion for the craft and mostly likely they had a funny meme to inspire them too lol!
I created this soft gold look to enhance the eyes as the eyes are the door to ones soul right?…I know ,I know I should have been a poet instead lol!
