Dear Makeup, I love you.

Dear Makeup,
I love you.

 I just realized that I haven't typed any words other that those about my faith and my stunningly amazing family. :) (Which shouldn't be too surprising because those are my #1 and #2 things that are most important to me) But..................... up there on my top 20 list of things I love is............ makeup! I LOVE makeup. I love putting makeup on people, I love playing with makeup, I love making women feel better about themselves with makeup, I love, love, love it! If you didn't already know, I'm a licensed esthetician (skin care person) and have been working with makeup and skin care, doing makeovers and selling makeup for 13 years. I've done wedding makeup, photography makeup, and just everyday makeup. There's just something so amazing about a woman coming in feeling down about herself and me being able to pick her back up by doing type of creative outlet, my art. I've heard stories of divorce, weight loss, and life changing events all while doing makeup. Mother and daughter dates, women who just need a new look, women who have had happy and horribly sad things that make them feel that they need a change. This pigmented substance has the power to make women see themselves in a different way, and I love it for that.

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
Gwyneth Paltrow

How true is that! I believe some of the most beautiful women I know are comfortable with themselves, just they way they are. In their own skin...not worried about makeup. But, a kick ass red lipstick just really has the ability to change your day! :) $2.00 makeup $50.00 makeup, I don't judge.... I love it all.
