ENHANCED…. Finally, I found a word to describe my makeup work. I couldn’t get with the beat face, snatched and/or on fleek terms that are more commonly being used (and absolutely no offense to any of my fellow artists who use those terms to describe their work, it’s just not for me). It actually took me awhile to figure out how to define what I do. I honestly struggled with it; Not feeling like I was in the same category as the so-called “beat face” artists because my work is a little more natural looking. I love & hate when my clients say they love their makeup after I’ve completed their look, and that they don’t look like themselves. One day one of my clients said that, and I told her, “yes you do, you’re just enhanced, love”. Since then I’ve been saying that to all my clients – “….an enhanced you”.
One of my favorite things about the art of makeup are the subtle transformations. I want my clients to look and feel like a transformed version of themselves, not an entirely different person. That’s been my goal since day 1, hence the name LYBartistry (Love YOUR Beauty Artistry). And that’s exactly what it means to be enhanced – – using color and confidence to enhance beauty.
With all this being said, I would like to introduce to you my upcoming workshop, ENHANCED. In this workshop, I’ll be teaching techniques on how to enhance your natural features. Here are some things you can expect to learn – how to properly apply and blend foundation, fill-in brows and yes how to highlight & contour. And I have a few surprises up my sleeve as well; I wish I could share with you now but I’m still tying up some loose ends, which gives me an opportunity to share more later.
If you’re interested in attending this workshop, all you have to do is stay tuned for registration details (I hope to open registration on Sept 1) and of course, stay tuned….
