Updates: Good News!

In a post I had written at the beginning of the year I told everyone I would keep them up-to-date with my progress on being a makeup artist.  You can tell from all of my hauls/reviews, that I’ve been buying stuff like crazy trying to build my kit (good God is it expensive; Thank God for discounts!). 

I’ve also been trying to network with professionals with years of experience in this industry who I’d be able to shadow, and learn from.  Yesterday, I got word from a professional celebrity photographer friend of mine, who I used to go to photo shoots with.  He’s very happy for me, and he will “ask his makeup artist friends if they are looking for an assistant/shadow girl.”  This may not sound like a big deal for some of you, but it really is, especially to have someone of that stature in your corner.  

I also got an e-mail from a celebrity makeup artist that I know saying, in summary,  he’s been busy with the Tyra Show, but now that it’s ending, he will have time to be my mentor! GREAT!

***I left out names, but if you know me personally you already know who they are. 

I love the progress that I’m making.  People have been hitting me up to do shoots.  I expect to get very busy.  Even if it doesn’t work out with these connects, I’m still going to push hard for myself. I am the master of my own fate!

Other great news: My Sigma Makeup Professional Premium Brush Kit came TODAY!!! I just recorded a video that’s now on youtube!!!  It came pretty quickly; I ordered it on Monday, February 22, 2010 & it came this Friday, February 26, 2010.
