My Beauty Adventure with A Professional Makeup Artist

I truly believe that people come into our lives so that we can learn and grow from them.  I recently had the pleasure of sharing makeup tips and getting my makeup professionally done by April, a makeup artist and the Executive Sales Director for Mary Kay Cosmetics.  This talented glam girl is an amazing source of inspiration with her passion for life and her sassy style that just makes your heart smile.  Oh, and not to drop names or anything, but she also did the makeup for Donald Trump and Melania's wedding!

Being the makeup junkie that I am, I was super excited to play with April's makeup kit. She showed me that Mary Kay is not the same Mary Kay that our mothers used many moons ago, it's young, it's fresh and simply divine! Also knowing that Mary Kay had recently partnered with the hit TV show Project Runway as their professional makeup artists, made me want to explore it even more!

April gave me a two step microdermabrasion treatment revealing a radiant healthy glow that you can see in our selfie above! I am so excited to bring April back for makeup tutorials and tips...stay tuned friends!
