Hey ladies, Whitney here!
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog! I am sure you are all just DYING to read a seven-page long introduction of myself, who I love, what I hate, and what I had for breakfast… but instead, I think I’ll just stick to the basics – letting our deep and meaningful relationship blossom over time. :-)
I have been an “unofficial” makeup artist for over 10 years, but realized people will actually PAY ME to do what I love just five years ago! Whodathunkit, right? Anyway… I have spent years honing my craft, thousands of dollars experimenting with the latest (and crappiest) products, and countless hours learning, loving, and obsessing over all things beauty! I have always adored the feeling I get when watching someone’s reaction as they “meet” themselves for the first time after a makeover. It’s incredible! Some have laughed from shock, some have teared-up from joy, and most just start asking 10,000 questions in hopes of repeating the process every day. The single most rewarding thing about what I do is getting to remind each and every woman that “I am only a makeup artist, not a magician.” I can simply enhance the beauty that exists in each and every one of my clients, not make something new appear out of thin air. In that moment, I get to see someone feel happy, beautiful, confident, and empowered all at once. It’s quite amazing, a little addicting, and I don’t plan on giving it up any time soon!
Now, full disclosure… I am not your typical beauty blogger. See that picture up there? Yea… I don’t look like that everyday. Check me out on a Thursday with my one-year-old son, a pair of old yoga paints, three boogie rags in my pocket, and a messy bun that would make a bird’s nest look chic. I might curse once in awhile, and I can’t guarantee that if you see me at the store I’ll be wearing matching socks, much less a full face of makeup.
Here’s what I CAN guarantee you. I am passionate about what I do, pretty damn good at it too, and I can’t wait to share all of my knowledge, love and humor with you guys! I’ll always be honest, and work hard to provide you with the best and most relevant tips, tricks and trends in the world of beauty and cosmetics. Without a doubt, I can already tell that this will be an incredible journey, and I truly appreciate you going on it with me!
All My Love and Lipstick,
