Makeup Lesson in session!

I love doing makeup lessons!  I DON’T CALL THEM MAKEOVERS! Erase that  word.

I love sharing my beauty secrets and kiss and telling new trend tricks!cropped-img_7498.jpg

My job takes me on the road a lot but when in town I go to my happy place. My fave place to be my office and private  makeup studio in sunny Florida.

When you’re thinking Valentine’s day gifts for your mom,sister,daughter or BFF think the gift of beauty!

Not just roses, a box of chocolates and perfume.Allow me to explain.

I have seen it all. I recently  gave a makeup lesson to a woman in her seventies who never used any makeup in her life and all because she was too shy to call and book an appointment for a makeup lesson or shop the pretty girls at the cosmetic counters (her words not mine). How sad…

After seeing me on TV she decided I was her girl and that it was a must to put me on her bucket list!

Last year I made up a woman in her thirties who booked a makeup session with me for a party she was going to. She kept on both staring at me and kept her head down. She did not want to look in the mirror. Next, she started to cry and tell me how ugly she was and that she felt so unattractive it was hard to look at herself in a mirror. This was hard for me to see. I gave her a tissue a big hug and told her all the beauty I saw in her face and body. ALL TRUTH…nothing to make her feel better.

She sat up taller,stopped crying and started to listen to my words. She felt amazing and looked it too. She loved that I gave her a natural soft look. Not like the over the top glam faces on social media. She commented on how I LISTENED to her and did what she wanted not a look I wanted. She flew on on wings of beauty after our session and felt like a million. It was an epic moment for me too.

I LOVE making women feel marvelous. Even men! Golf professionals,tennis players or sportscasters or men want to look good too!

Wherever you live…think about treating yourself or someone else to this feel good gift.

The way you see yourself and your attitude is EVERYTHING!
