"MAKEUP is not a tool meant to make an ugly thing beautiful, it is meant only to magnify the beauty that already exists." • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
It is a very common misconception to think that women who spend a lot of time on their makeup are always "vain" or "fake." It's so important to realize that makeup is an art. It doesn't necessarily mean that you aren't comfortable in your own skin. I honestly love doing makeup on myself, and on my clients. Let's learn to appreciate the beauty of this artwork.
That's my message for the day! Enjoy this beautiful weather we are having!
That kid that got picked on in junior high because she was bigger than all the other girls. The high school girl that was awkward and uncomfortable in everything she wore because she wasn't sure if it was even possible for her to look good. That college girl who thought it was a joke when the most handsome man in the whole wide world asked her out. And that woman who still struggles to accept compliments when people give them to her.
I love this industry I'm in because I get to make people feel beautiful about themselves - something I have always struggled with. I want other people to see that "beauty" shouldn't just describe how you look, but also who you are. Show people how beautiful your soul is.
I'm working on how I view myself and how I view this lovely world we live in!
Thanks for following me! I'm gonna keep trying to share beautiful things in your feed!
Probably one of my favorite things to do behind the chair is Balayage. It's such a beautiful way to add some dimmension to your hair. It's easy to upkeep, and can be done so many different ways! I need some of my followers to let me use some of the new techniques I learned at the Charlotte Fashion Focus Hair Show this past weekend. It's amazing to feel so inspired by fellow artists!
On a side note, this client's hair was down to her butt and untouched by previous color! That's just the best.
My client asked for some copper colors to get her hair ready for fall! Copper is a color that I definitely don't get enough requests for, but I think it is a perfect transition into "pumpkin spice season."
I love it when I just click with my clients. This new client was just the sweetest and we got along so well! I see a lasting friendship out of this. And can we just take a minute to look at how gorgeous her baby lights and balayage turned out?
