With my mentor @jungsaemmool11 원장님~ watch her on YouTube! 라방보다가 생각해보니..?아카데미 다니면서 왜 사진도 제대로 못찍었지 생각했어요~ 인생에 쉽게 오지 않는 기회 주셔서 감사드려요!
I met her at a time when I was hitting a wall in regards to my makeup career. I was still getting booked weekly for events and weddings, but I personally felt no growth. I wanted to know how to really customize each look for every client and realized I had NO ONE to critique me for 10 years. Of course I did my research, shopped, tried new looks on friends, but I still felt like I was lacking something. Certain shades didn’t always match every eye color, lip color, skin tone, etc. And the hardest part was choosing a lip color. You’re probably thinking, “Just slap on any shade of pink!” No!! You cannot do that! LOL To this day, it is still a bit of a challenge, but this is all to say that I am so thankful to have relearned color theory and her KOD7 theory in a way that was so enlightening to me. People questioned why I packed my bags and went off to Korea to learn makeup even after I have done it for over 10 years. At the same time, my family was shocked that I was putting my teaching career on hold esp after I had already been offered a job right after grad school. However, I have absolutely no regrets about putting my life on “hold” and learning from THE best in all of Korea. In case you don’t know who she is she is a top celebrity makeup artist in Korea and she is THE pioneer of creating the “no makeup look” - you know, the one we still struggle with doing everyday. I am so blessed to be her student and cannot thank her enough for reigniting the passion for makeup artistry within me and always giving us so many words of wisdom! BTW, people are usually really intimidated by her but she is super sweet, friendly, and nurturing like a mom! First pic: in Los Angeles 2016
