One of the highlights of my summer so far was attending the annual pro-roadshow by Makeup Forever (MUFE) in San Francisco! Last year was amazing and I knew that this year would be even better! I was not disappointed!
Maya came with me and even treated me to a hair cut! She also taught me how to do a proper “blowout.” Sure, I’ve read how to in magazines…but actually having someone show you in person is better! Always love me some how-to for hair!
The education was amazing…everything from practical techniques (use tape to pick up stray glitter off of the face!) to business advice (what does my “brand” say to my clients?)! So thankful that MUFE and these educators care enough to invest in the artistry community!
I love the W Hotel and discovered while I was there that I like espresso. I’ve always been a tea drinker…Maya came with me and educated me on “real coffee, the way we have it in Europe!”
We made some new friends too! This is me and Vanessa of BeautyMarkInk. It was great being able to dish with our artists about product, business, and even what apps we love as makeup artists! By the way, if you ever find yourself at the W, order the yellow tail…it was the BEST sashimi I’ve ever had! Yum…getting hungry just thinking about it…
I think it’s important to always be sharpening your skills in whatever field it is that you work in! Increased knowledge equals increased confidence. And community and camaraderie is so important! Not to mention, shopping for makeup is always a good idea too right?
Cheers to Community, Camaraderie, and Confidence,
