Let the Creativity come....
"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if she is to be ultimately at peace with herself." Unknown
Pretty excited about my day. It may come as a shock that the picture above I created for a bride a few years ago when I was helping her with her makeup for her wedding. I am trying to return to my creative self right now. I miss music and singing. I miss playing with makeup. It's funny, most people in Austin, TX know me as the girl that does non-profit work and has completed a few triathlons. I would say the majority of my friends back in Orlando, FL where I lived for 9 years would say...oh, she is a singer, actor and part time make up artist. It's true. I love playing with color and see that come alive on other people's faces. Don't be fooled, I am not someone who loves to wear makeup all the time. It's a hassle. I am good with some mascara, a dash of eyeliner and a good gloss or lip stick. But when my husband and I take off on a dressy date night or when I get to return to my roots on singing and gig it up.....I love to bedazzle my face as well. (and I do love my false lashes ladies)
That would return me to my day. I am headed out on not one, but 2 makeup appts for some amazing ladies. I am headed first to my friend Melissa's house to do her makeup for her Save the Date photos...which happens to be with one of my fave photographers in Austin. Natalie of Hazeled photograpy. She did mine and Sam's engagement shoot and are some of our favorite pictures in our home. And then I am headed to an appt with a girl that is going to do trash the dress. That is where a bride takes her gown that she surely won't wear again and does a daring photo shoot with it...I love this because I will get to use much color at this shoot. She is doing something with finger paint and her 2 children, so I am excited for this consultation. (Below is an example of trash the dress.)
I pulled a few more photos of past makeup I have done as I used to free lance for MAC Cosmetics.
This was from a tribal event, hence the strange jewelry.
This is one of my favorite creations. I did her hair and makeup as if she were a peacock. So fun!
Trying to sing a little more. Create a little more. Love a little more each day....
