First huge event

Was awesome! I volunteered as a makeup artist for the Kirtland Idol event, it was actually alot bigger than I thought it would be. I did stage makeup for about 15 people, the contestants and judges. I got a lot of experience matching foundations, listening to requests, and being able to please the client :D

Branching out

I stopped by Stockton Hair Artistry, after talking to Noelle, who owns Vanity Makeup Studio here in Abq. They have Romeo and Juliet cosmetics, a local brand, and very highly pigmented. I enjoyed playing with the colors and the variety as well.

I've been reading alot about airbrush makeup lately, so I really want to get a kit. Some say Kett, others say Dinair, others say MAC. Who should I go with?? I don't really know!

I went and got a Sephora train case for my makeup kit, which now contains a mix of MAC, NYX, Ben Nye, Lime Crime, and Makeup Forever... too many brands to choose from out there! It's a bit overwhelming, I think!

In love with MAC!

Well this is my first makeup blog post~! I have a full-time job in the space industry, but am a secret makeup lover! I've been doing makeup on myself for years, and have been practicing on friends for a couple of years. I absolutely love it! Now I'm beginning to hone my skills so I can put a portfolio together. Then onto being a freelance makeup artist :D

MAC is my most favorite brand, but I have also been known to use Clinique, NARS, Makeup Forever, Estee Lauder, and Urban Decay.

Hopefully I'll have some practice photos up soon, along with swatches :D
