Happy Halloween!

I hope that you all have a fantastic Halloween! Have fun and be safe! I did my first run of skull makeup today on my youngest daughter. I like the end result well enough, but I dislike the white face paint  that I bought for this look. It is really stiff and cracked while I was still applying makeup. But she is happy with it. 14937221_10154785272154756_4802695193091373407_n

We have been so busy it is hard to get anything done. My oldest joined Sea Scouts and my weekends are so packed! We have stuff going on everyday, on top of homeschooling and regular life. There is just not enough time to get everything done! So I am going to  add some pictures of recent fun makeup looks that I have done. Just so you can check it out. 🙂

14702345_10154771514909756_1325036120388668858_nI wore this to my daughters gym on the day that she got to dress up. The girls love to see how I do my makeup each week so I did something special. And had my hair crimped…why be boring?

This is Henry. He belongs to my youngest daughter. She loves him.

I have an obsession with skulls and this is the best time of year to get them from some place other than Amazon.

 

I recently made the switch to Kat Von D’s foundation. I love a full coverage foundation and I really love this one. It sits on the skin well, it holds up to working out. It didn’t bother my skin any more than I anticipated when changing for one brand to another. And even being full coverage, it doesn’t settle into fine lines. Which for those of us over 20 is a big deal. And one pump is plenty for me. And I like coverage. So all in all I am really happy with the switch.  I do not like the smell, but other than that, I really love it. Oh, and can we take a moment to appreciate the time of year where everyone puts out a black lipstick? #stockupnow.

 

That’s it for now. I will post a little more later in the week. In the mean time, make sure you follow me in IG for makeup post@ @Twisted_Notts.

Thanks for stopping in!

Class dismissed

I posted pictures of my final project for my makeup class a week or two ago. I am please to let you know that I passed my final exam, and thus my class. I am now a certified makeup artist. 🙂 I still have lots to learn, as makeup is always changing, and each new face is different, but I am so excited about this. I have had the desire to do this off and on since I was in high school, but now I have finally done it. I am looking forward to being able to put my skill into action and start working. But it’s still a little scary. No body wants to create a less than perfect look for someone, especially for important events! But…now I am able to help women feel their absolute most beautiful, no matter what kind of look they are looking for. I do, however, LOVE fantasy and fx work. So I will be spending additional time working on those skills.

I look forward to sharing my work here, with you guys.

 

On another note, please keep Houston in your thoughts and prayers. We are experiencing lots of flooding, and we are expecting more rain. So many people have already lost so much. My gym took in a small amount of water on one side, but many people have several inches or even feet of water in their homes. Some have lost their homes. Schools are closed and people can’t get to work. Thanks guys, your prayers mean so much.

ONE MORE THING! Lol!. I am doing things like Tip Tuesday on my fb page. I post a makeup or beauty tip each Tuesday, and then some follow up information or product recommendation afterwards. Would you like to see that here? Would you like to see similar thing? Like what? Leave me some info in the comments. Thanks!

For real…this is the end…..
