Makeup Artist Studio!!!

Omg! I don't know where to begin. I've been putting off writing this post because I have so much to say and I don't want to bore you all with details or leave anything out :) but, I had the most AMAZING time at Makeup Artist Studio last week! Makeup Artist Studio is a Makeup Artistry school that offers courses from makeup, hair and wardrobe styling to prop styling.

The course that I chose to take was for 3 days. All 3 days were so much fun! The school only takes 8 students at a time and my class had 6 students. I think what made the class a lot more fun is that I went with my friend and now fellow Makeup Artist, Lynette Chambliss!

My #1 Eyeshadow Palette

Among the many eyeshadow palettes that I have which range from large to small in sizes-this is my FAVORITE palette. LOVE it! It's the Coastal Scents 88 palette. One of the great things about it is it's only $18.95.
