First Day On The Job

Tomorrow morning I teach my first group of makeup artists/cosmetologists in the Basics of Makeup Artistry class for Mirabella Cosmetics at Salon Centric in Boise. I am so excited, but also a little nervous. It is definitely one thing to apply makeup, and quite another to explain how you are doing it. I am looking forward to what I will learn from the class as well. I have never come away from a class, whether teaching or attending, without learning something new from the other amazing artists that are there. Just tonight I was reviewing my booklet and learning how to define in words what I see with my eyes. What a cool experience! If you are interested in having me do your makeup for an event, or just to get out of a makeup rut; feel free to contact me. Also, any stylists out there looking to branch out in a tough economy, let me know and I would love to share with you how I have made makeup such an important part of my list of services.

Hi Camilla!
