Makeup hobby is best hobby

Those of you who follow me on Instagram have recently noticed a change in the photos that are trending my feed. As I develop my freelancing MUA (makeup artist) skills, I document my looks. Sometimes, I follow other tutorials, just to get a feel for a certain look or to learn new techniques from different points of view and other times, I try to come up with something all on my own even if it doesn’t quite work out. It’s really become one of my favorite hobbies. 


This is not only one of my absolute favorite looks, but it’s also my most popular so far. I received many compliments for this fantasy look which was inspired by Nicole Guerriero on Youtube. Feel free to subscribe to her channel for more makeup tips and routines.


This look I did for Valentine’s Day using matte purples and matte pink from Milani. The look was inspired by LoehyLane on Youtube who had done a similar look back in Autumn. I wanted to do something besides pink, red and gold for V-day as that seemed to be one of the most popular things to do this year. I wasn’t trying to go against the grain, per se, I just am not good at working with glitter looks right now. 


My little Milani collection. These rose blushes are part of a limited edition release. They press a lot of their blushes into rose patterns, but they only release them in certain colors. There is a third, darker blush I am still trying to hunt down from this release. It’s almost always sold out at CVS despite it!!
