I know its been such a long time. It seems I'm truly awful at keeping you guys updated on my moves. However i bring forth pretty cool updates.
I attended the IMATS. For those that don't know what it means, it stands for International Makeup Artist Trade Show and it was such an exhilarating experience. I felt like a kid in the candy store and my pockets felt it too lol!!! There were so many different talented artists showcasing their best pieces and also i met a couple of the YouTube gurus i watch. I was super excited to know that my favorite and most inspiring GURU of all time Kandee Johnson was going to attend. On sat i couldn't get to the stage fast enough and when i saw her i felt so happy. You guys are probably wondering why? Well for one she has a beautiful heart and she does all kinds of different tutorials. She is a motivational speaker and always leaves you feeling empowered and wanting to push further. She is christian and always puts GOD above anything and first. I had a terrible morning prior to my arrival to IMATS and it almost stopped me from attending and getting that fuel to keep pursuing my dreams. When Kandee spoke, it felt almost as if GOD himself had used her as a angel to speak from the heart and speak to me. She spoke of how people will doubt you and even do everything they can to pull you down, but its OK if no one believes in you because GOD puts dreams in your heart and soul that are there for you to tap into it and make it happen. He doesn't give us obstacles we cant overcome he just sometimes makes our ground shake and unstable to force us to break our comfort zone and reach out to bigger and better things.
I also met the infamous Queen of blending. She does some really incredible eye makeup tutorials and her IMATS look was nothing short of that. See for yourselves:
In overall i had fun, bought a lot of great makeup and got so much more inspired.
