Last weekend, my mother and me packed up all of our make-up supplies and headed to Rosè and Rosey Cheeks hosted by Dionne Dean. We brought all of our tools to learn how to create an all out glam-look from start to finish with world renowned make-up artist @Beauty2Blood at The Makeup Club in Hollywood.
I have always been committed to doing a full face and loving it- once a make-up counter girl, always a make-up counter girl. But if I’m real with you, over the past year I’ve struggled to find the time and energy to go full on glam. Then kicked myself when I glanced in the mirror for not looking my best. I mean what kind of stylist am I if I can’t walk the talk.
I realized that I’d fallen into a beauty rut – one of the style traps I tell my clients to avoid. Was it really time or know-how? It wasn’t. It was fear. The stylist would have to admit that I had gotten behind in the beauty game. I’d have to admit I needed help. And admit that my beauty look was stale. While fashion always stays top of mind, my beauty routine had become just that – a routine.
I had You Tube make-up tutorial envy. I wanted to try lashes – on my own- learn a new lushes lip but I was also embarrassed to ask for help. I was supposed to know this stuff right? Enough! I’d start at the beginning, in this class. I decided to forget what I thought I knew to try something new. No limits, lots of questions and a commitment to love my look again and have fun.
In this class, I did all three and a had a few glasses of Rosè along the way. I put on eye lashes like a beauty influencer – well almost. I learned some amazing eyebrow shaping techniques and had so much fun playing and learning to love my beauty look again. I’m loving the new beauty goodies I got and excited to be excited about beauty again.
I learned that anxiety over something I’ve always loved means it’s time to make a change. It’s time to at least listen to my inner voice. I learned when I’m playing small it’s all about of fear. Look we all want to look good and feel good at our core. Don’t be afraid to let go of an old look or an old attitude – an old anything that no longer serves. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Choose to upgrade your expertise and ask questions. Commit to look and be your very best.
