My first Contest/Giveaway

Hi everyone!!
I know i am really bad at updating here and everywhere else but three jobs and full school schedule dont leave me very much blogging time.
Since I have last posted alot of great things have happen.
I have been blessed with working and meeting really great people and because I am so happy I want to have my first Makeup Contest.
I'm Really excited about some upcoming work. :) Thank you to some lovely ladies who are passing out my cards. you guys rock. Ive decided to have a contest since I am in such a great mood and things are going good for me work wise. Keep spreading the word about this block and both my fb page and instagram and if I get to 180 likes/followers on facebook and instagram I will choose a 1rst and second place winner. :)
1rst place winner will get a free makeover by me.(this is only valid for winners in the LA area. If someone outside of the area wins I have an alternative :). And I'll provide you with your own IMATS ticket for next year. Its worth it I promise. IMATS does take place in London, Sydney, Vancouver, NY, Toronto and LA as well of course. so if anyone wins from any other area Ill be happy to buy your ticket to the show of your choice (transportation and accommodations aren't provided) and send it to you. :) Now I realize that many are not near the areas where IMATS is so I have decided that the alternative for those is I can spend what I would on the ticket on new cosmetics for you. I will put together a really cool makeup pack for those who can't go to IMATS. Unfortunately I cannot fly out to see some of you for a make over but I can definitely ship you some new makeup :)
The second place winner will get a few new cosmetics as well :)
All you have to do is spread the word. :)

What's been going on.

Hey guys! So lately I've been experimenting with latex and other material due to the fact that I've been taking a theater makeup class and man oh man is it interesting. I've made myself an old lady, as well as a monkey, and an injured victim. Beside's this I've volunteered my services and decided to take on face painting for a local charity carnival. It's such a blast!! I love the excited look on the children's faces, it make it worth the while. Volunteer and charity work is a great way to put yourself out there and gain experience! I'll be putting up some pictures from both event as well as pictures of some corrective makeup I've done on the beauty model who so happens to be my mother :) Enjoy

Costume Ideas!

Yes I know Halloween is still a few months away but a lot of friends have already brought up the subject of costumes. I haven't decided what I want to be yet. I was thinking about Pocahontas, figured cute simple makeup with some turquoise or teal thrown in but now I've decided to try to put different costumes together for fun. I think it'd be a good way to put my skills to work and try more dramatic looks. So here is my first attempt: Broken doll. Enjoy ;). Oh also guys I know I'm really slow  on updating and but just an fyi I have enrolled in another makeup class that will focus on theater makeup so expect to ese some cool and dramatic stuff. I hope to learn some pretty awesome things :)

 :) My cat is a bit of a camera whore so don't be surprised if you see him sneak in to a lot of future pics. And sorry these aren't the best. I have yet to invest in an actual camera.
