I’ve gotten to the point now where my face is carrying some of my extra weight. I used to have cheek bones and a nice pointy chin. Now everything’s a little more muddled together. I’ll admit it’s not my favorite thing but I it’s not something I obsess over either. For the most part, it is what it is. But there are times when I need it to not be what it is. If there’s a big event where I know pictures will be taken or I have an upcoming photo shoot, I like to manipulate my wobbly bits a little. We all know the camera likes to pack on the pounds. That’s when contouring comes in.
There are nights when I want to feel completely glam. In fact, this week is one of those times. It’s my birthday week, so of course I need a few fun selfies to commemorate it. These are the times when I pull out my huge box of makeup and get to sculpting. I’ve had a love affair with makeup since before I could remember. As a creative, I’ve always enjoyed creating art, that includes art resulting from makeup brushes. I have an insane amount of tools to make pure magic happen. A few years ago, I sold Mary Kay. I absolutely loved it. It was so special to get to build relationships with ladies and help them to feel good about themselves. Not to mention, the trips to Dallas just to learn how amazing the company really was. Life got in the way and I decided to give it up but I’m still a Mary Kay loyalist. It’s practically all I wear. During my time with the company, I did a lot of research so that I could sell my product well. I took classes from professional makeup artists and watched countless online tutorials. Not to mention all of the experiments conducted on my own face. Through all of that I’ve learned how to pull out all of the stops without looking completely unnatural.
I thought it might be fun to share my knowledge with you so you can have it in your back pocket when you need to feel extra beautiful. I know there’s a lot of information out there that you can get anytime, anywhere. But I have a new idea that might be more beneficial. I plan to do a Facebook Live party this month to show you how to contour and answer any of your other makeup questions. The difference with this is that it is a live Q&A session that can be completely customized to you without you ever leaving the comfort of your own home. So if you’ve been wondering how to give yourself a little extra va va voom, RSVP for the event. If you like what you see, you can buy the products but there’s certainly not any purchase required. Just good ole’ girl time.
