So I took the second part of my makeup class and it was AMAZING. I never had so much fun! It was more advanced than the first part and I learned so much more about makeup and how to make a person really look beautiful. You’d be surprised at how intricate makeup is. It really is an art form. I mean take my teacher, she creates art with each person she does. She can make a person’s eye appear bigger, some who has a fuller face seem svelte, and make a long and skinny face have more width and definition. I was just amazed at all she can do.
The good thing about the class was I seem to have a natural talent for it. The teacher complemented me constantly, which was amazing to hear. She never really critiqued anything I did, while with the other people in the class; she would tear some of their stuff apart. This made me feel confident and that this is really something that I can pursue. Now all I need to do is practice, practice, practice. That is the most important thing. I mean I could take more classes, but there is a point where you have to stop researching and start actually doing. Now I just need to figure out a way to practice on people other than my mother. She’s been a good sport and all but I need to work on different faces in order to develop my self. And since most of my friends are out of state, I need to find another avenue. I have a couple of ideas on how to go about it, but as I’ve said before I am not rushing into this thing. I am going to take it slowly and hopefully find a way to practice during the weekend when I’m not at work.
