Yay! I'm finally getting to start posting entries about my first Summer Makeup Event! This was soooooo much fun and I can't wait to share with you in the next few days about everything that went into this and everyone involved that made it happen.

So what exactly was it?
Well, I had swimming in my head a ton of ideas that went something like this:
a) Practice techniques and skills on different faces, features (especially eyes), skin types, and skin colors
b) Figure out how the makeup would be captured on film
c) Have a chance to connect with other possible vendors for future opportunities for collaboration
d) Incorporate different iconic styles and hair
e) Include friends and family who have been supportive as models
f) Must have food and music
g) Have lots of fun

How will these entries work?
Each day, I'll post photos of one of the models we worked on. It will include before and after photos, along with shots taken inbetween. Some turned out exactly as I hoped for...others reminded me I still need a lot of practice! :) Hopefully, these next entries will inspire you to be open to trying a new look, or just experiment with being creative!

Oogah-Boogah! Food!
