Weekend Wrap Up

Make-up. Eyeshadows. Eye shadow brushThe weekend really seems to fly especially when you work it. This past weekend I was able to do makeup for 3 different women for 3 different boudoir sessions. If you’ve never had a boudoir session done you are missing out!!! They are a way to really make you look and feel great and of course sexy!

One of the things I love most about my job is that I get to help inner beauty radiate outward. There is no greater achievement for me than making my current client feel like a superstar. Some women have never been told how beautiful they truly are and that is tragic.

The greatest and most nerve racking moment in a MUA’s job is the “reveal”. You never know what kind of reaction you will get!! Each of my 3 clients were blown away! I may even have a wedding job to come out of it! This weekend ended on a high note and I believe I have impacted each of those ladies in a positive way and that ladies and gentlemen is why I love my job.

Nude Nails

I am the type of person who loves bright crazy nails!!! Being an esthetician I have to keep mine natural and pretty short so I don’t scratch anyone but I admire stiletto nails and other trends. One thing I had not ever done was a neutral color polish. I used to think it was a boring thing that only conservative women wear. Boy was I wrong.

Going through one of my many monthly beauty mag subscriptions I came across some various nail trends. One thing that people are doing more of is the classic demure nude nail. So being a beauty blogger, I decided to try it out. There are two colors in the OPI 2014 Brazil Collection; Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around and Taupe-less Beach. I opted for the latter because the first one was sold out.

I must say I’m very happy with the color. It’s not so nude that it looks washed out but not too dark either. It’s a great spring/summer color for hands and toes! I also have Toucan Do It If You Try (seriously who thinks of these names!) which is a really pretty coral/orange that looks amazing as well. I am in love with this whole collection! The polish retails for $9.00 and can be found at Ulta!
