Confidence is so important in every aspect of life. For over 36 years I've worked as a makeup artist, for 18 years I’ve been an image consultant, and for 39 years I’ve created and owned my own business. In this time, I’ve seen the difference that I have on people’s confidence for themselves and those around them. I’ve also felt it on a personal level.
There are many misconceptions about color. One of the most confusing aspects of color is terminology and learning how to refer to what you are seeing. Color is so complex many people may think it is subjective, but there are scientific views of color and artistic views of color. Because art and science rely on one another there is overlap, but it is useful to realize that color can be approached from a scientific perspective.
I sink inside when someone says to me they are too old, too curvy, too whatever to be stylish. Good Golly, some of my inspirations are older than me! I don’t think there is anything more important than feeling good about yourself, and I believe that looking good is part of that.
Why do we wear makeup? The answer is different for all, but in general it's to put our best face forward. We are a different kind of makeup company because we don't just make pretty colors, we make pretty colors with purpose.
I realize that some people will disagree with me on this, and that is fine we can agree to disagree. This is a personal/professional pet peeve of mine and it comes from a place of wanting to see everyone looking and feeling their best, naturally.
