Get y’all’s minds out the gutter! We’re talkin’ makeup over here. Geez!
Anyhoot, I get a lot of questions from ladies asking me how long it takes me to get ready in the morning and apply a full face of makeup. They’re thinking 30 minutes, 45 minutes, maybe an hour….Nope. They nearly freak out when I tell them…..15 minutes. Yes, I am a makeup artist and yes, I have been doing this for some time now, but when I get in a routine of products and know what to do, I can now say I do my makeup in 15 minutes or less.
Yes, it is fun to try new looks and use different products when I have all the time in the world. But, for the average woman on the go, with a family, with a career, with more things on her plate than she’d like to announce, it’s just not happenin’. I like to keep it simple.
I do a lot of one-on-one lessons with ladies to give them the sense that doing your makeup doesn’t have to be a chore. Because, who wants one more chore?! It is what you make it out to be, so just make it fun and interesting and keep it your own! Once you nail down all the products that are right for you and what you want to get out of your makeup look, you’re set! Figure out what you want to start the application process with and how you’d like to end it and everything in between can be tweaked to your needs. Once you do this, you’ll feel so much better about it and you’ll most likely have a full makeup look in 15 minutes or less. The best advice I’ve learned over the years is, “there are zero rules when it comes to makeup“. That’s the best thing about my job. Every day brings something new and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
