For a long time, I stayed away from doing too much in the makeup tutorial department on my blog and social media, because I felt like YouTube and Instagram are dominated by artists who spend HOURS blending and doing super creative makeup, and that is just not what I normally do – both in personal and professional situations.
For example, I am not the type of artist who’s going to make several looks inspired by junk food, like Skelotim here.
This isn’t just because I am not into junk food… It’s because I am a different kind of artist.
Hello, lovely friends! Happy Friday! Last week Wednesday, I made another trek down to LA, this time for Blogfest & IDEA World. If those two things sound completely foreign to you, I am not surprised, as I had not heard of them until I found out I was going. 😜
The larger of the two conferences is IDEA World, which is an enormous (as in, the world’s largest) fitness convention that attracts people from all over the world! The smaller of the two is Blogfest, which happens the first two days of IDEA World, and is a conference for health and fitness bloggers put on by Sweat Pink!
Recently, I changed this website from a portfolio site that happened to have a blog, to a blog site that happens to have a couple portfolios (so pardon the dust as some things are being tweaked)! So because of that and my new commitment to take blogging more seriously, I was extra pumped to learn more best practices about blogging and social media!
Hello, friends! It has been FOREVER since I have written a blog! I was blessed with the opportunity to do a super fun makeup job, which happened to be a six-day job with four of the days being 10+ hours long, and a 45-minute commute both ways!
It was to do makeup for the US Open Women’s Golf tournament for Fox Sports!
Are you tired yet of hearing how much I love Influenster? If so, sorry not sorry! (and click here to join!) This time, they sent me a Marc Jacobs Glowstick to review. Let’s just say it was the highlight of my day the day I received it! *Rimshot*
