Some girl in my class stopped me today & said "WOW! Your hair & make-up always look great!"
Even tho I have a 8am class Mondays & Tuesdays I still get done up. There is nothing like having your hair & make-up done to start your day. I always get questioned about how i do it or why i even bother. Deep down inside I do it for myself. I don't have to impress anyone BUT it does give you a certain pep in your walk. I feel better when I know that i look better. PLUS I'm a big believer in practicing what you preach. I get stopped by girls all the time asking for tips & tricks. If your in the beauty business, like myself, who is going to take me seriously If I state that I'm a Make-Up Artist & Hairstylist if I don't look it. I know I'm very picky with who I let near my face & hair, If you don't look the part your not getting my $$$.
I've been all about simple yet dramatic looks lately. I'm feeling the cold fall wind & have been all about smokey eyes for a week now. (WARNING: next FOTD's will be smokey eyes =]) I'm all about sweeping one dramatic color on the lid & a matte skintone highlight to blend it out mascara & liner. So simple yet gets the point across. The other day Jess (check out her blog =]!) tweeted a picture where she used sketch on the lid & it looked fab. I had to try it out this morning.
[NOTE: I DO NOT photoshop my pics although contrary to some peoples belief. I played around with this picture because the lighting was off but i liked the way it came out.]
I changed the lip after seeing this picture. I couldn't find the lipstick I wanted to use so I tried a Wet & Wild one and didn't like the look tho I did want a peachy lip.
