August was a good month for me. I really thought a lot about goals and planning my life and just moving forward. Thinking about my passions and interests and trying to think and plan my future is really important to me right now being that I recently graduated college and I am just trying to re-group and think about what I want to do in life.
I have always been really interested in cosmetics and love trying and buying new items and finding what is good for my skin type and what not but have also always had fun doing makeup for my friends or family. I started looking into makeup seminars and trying to find classes where I can expand and learn more techniques for application. I really stepped out of my comfort zone as soon as I saw that there was a makeup seminar in Glendale, Ca with a professional makeup artist for a pro corrective course. I was hesitant on signing up because I by no means identify myself as a professional but thought it was worth a shot to at least see if this is something I could do for the rest of my life.
I went to the class and it was the most informative and fun! I wasn't expecting everything that had happened but was so happy that I did it. I learned about techniques and tricks on how to apply on different facial and eye shapes and how to mix foundations, etc. It was so mind blowing and so much fun I instantly knew this was something that I wanted to do forever.
Makeup makes me happy. It intrigues me and fascinates me on how beautiful it can make one feel not only from an outward perspective but internally as well. This is something that I most definitely want to pursue and want to learn more about and I just hope more opportunities arise where I can continue to step out and grow and pursue makeup artistry as a career. I felt so encouraged throughout it all and have been practicing on friends every chance that I can get.
August was a good month to me. It taught me to step out and to evaluate. To evaluate what I want, what is important to me, and to be adventurous!
