The model matters. No matter how awesome your makeup is, if the person modeling your look does not know HOW to model, then it makes everything look garbage.
Lesson learned. This is also why tests are important as well.
She’ the only one that I consider to be a genuine friend even though I think I’m a shit one :/ I’m happy for her professionally, personally as well. But I’m gonna miss the hell out of her :( Love you Kathleen!!
I just may start freelancing for Nars Cosmetics! I have my fingers, eyes, toes, nose hairs, and heart strings crossed.
Thank you Rachel, Erin, Jessica, and Keia!!!
And because of this, I’m trying my hardest to return to my happy place or to think of where I know I’ll be within the the next two years. I have to constantly envision this and speak in present affirmations because of feelings like I’m having right now.
And because I don’t want to think negatively, I’m trying not to think at all but it’s hard and I’m human.
I admit, it’s a bit of a struggle for me to maintain an internet presence, but I’m trying. And I’m not just trying to maintain ANY presence, I want my presence to be genuine so that when future clients google me, they see the greatness of my tumblrs and that would hopefully draw them in.
I also have to remember that I’m a walking, talking, typing advert of my business. I’m the pr, the market researcher, the disciplinary, and the customer service rep.
It just is what it is. I’m steadily researching and learning to faux pas what it means to run a successful sole proprietorship. Even more so, I’m learning what it means to be a professional MUA in person and on the internet.
I just Back to MAC’d a few depotted things (six if I want to be specific) and got a Ruby Woo in return for my recycling (Yay MAC!). I tried it on in store (my own) and was kinda impressed. It’s so very dry, and I get it, it’s matte. But dang, it dragged and didn’t have piece of moisture, I even had lip balm on and the darn lipstick ate my moisture!! Still, I think it’s a beautiful color and I look forward to using it on some of my shoots in the future :D
