Withdrawals

2 Feb

It’s been far too long since I’ve had a makeup job and I’m starting to get withdrawals. I’m supposed to do makeup on a photoshoot for a potential advertisement in a VERY new and well known casino (can’t spill the beans!) at some point in February. The problem with large productions such as this is that they tend to get pushed back. I’m chomping at the bit to get to work and add to my portfolio.

On that note, I was going through my portfolio today and I had to say I was impressed.  I don’t consider it narcassistic to like your work, but there are certain photos that I am amazed by. The part of my conscience that doubts my abilities wonders if the picture is so phenomenal because of the model, or maybe the photographer, but then the other part of me realizes that without the red lips I put on the model or the PERFECT eyebrow that I created, the look just wouldn’t be the same. It is so interesting to see how far I’ve progressed since I started doing makeup. Watching your own skill grow throughout different photos is truly a great experience.

I am really happy to be at a place in my life where I can pursue my passions and I have the ability to dabble in the things that I love to do. I have a feeling that when I look back at my life in 50 years or so, I’m going to remember the “Good ‘ol days when I was a makeup artist” with incredibly fond memories.
