MUA Diary: Soft Peach and Purples

My friend I featured on my last MUA Diary actually generated some business for me by posting the pics of her makeup on Facebook a friend of hers booked me to do her makeup for her birthday. She advised that she wanted a softer look so I used peaches, browns, and purples. She loved the lipcolor Heroine and requested that as well. I lined her lips with a fuschia liner first then put on the lipstick skipping the center of her lips for a contoured look. I contoured and highlighted her face as well.

You can tell from the pics she really loved the look. I got to stay for the festivities which was awesome. I got to see firsthand how her makeup got such a great response and I also got to network a little.
Please follow my blog and feel free to leave a question or a comment I have more MUA Diary post coming up and a couple of hauls.

MUA Diary: Neutral eyes with a Pop of color

Hello gorgeous gals here is a look I did for my bestie recently. I originally intended to do a completely neutral eye to showcase the amazing purple lip color I planned to use but she gave me free reign and I couldnt resist adding a pop of color. I felt it still didn't detract from the lip color. The lipstick I used was Heroine by M.A.C and this color is limited edition and unfortunately no longer available. I got the last one at my local counter unfortunately there was only one so I sacrificed and put it in my kit for my wonderful clients.

While I do feel as though my skill has progressed and that I have incorporated new techniques I do see the areas where I could use improvement. This field is all about learning and growth. I feel incredibly lucky to be doing what I love though and I will be estatic when I can do it full time as that is my ultimate goal.
Please let me know what you think in the comments below and follow my blog I will be adding more new looks soon.

My Vanity/ Makeup Organization

Hey gorgeous gals I decided to just do an overview in pictures of my Vanity/Makeup organization. I decided to do this because I love to see others makeup organization and collections. I didn't go into detail because I'm considering doing a video of my collection so this is just kind of an overview.

My vanity itself is the Malm Vanity from Ikea I love the clean lines of this piece.

The clear acylic drawer units on the right are from as seen in a previous post.

The white wire caddy on the left hand side of the pic I use to hold my palettes is from a local thrift store

A peek inside the bottom 3 drawer Units Face and Cheek products

The middle units Contain Eye shadow Palettes and lip products, The top unit contain eyeshadow bases, gel liners, and pigments
