This is such a great opportunity for women to bring their basic makeup collection and learn tips and tricks with what you have. Can't wait to roll out plans for 2012!

Shout out to my best friend, Delilah P. Strickland! She just completed Law School! I will be getting my friend back in just a few weeks once she takes the bar exam!

Her only request was that I be there to do her makeup and lashes. Go figure :-)

We live in a society where everything is instant. It is so easy to want, want, and want some more. One of my goals upon moving to New York is that I wanted to be a swing on Broadway. I remember being so anxious! Within my first year of moving to New York, I was in the middle of my internship at The Juilliard School and I was so anxious to get on The Great White Way. Little did I know that no matter how much you want something, everything works with the powers of the universe and EVERYTHING happens when it is suppose to happen. To become a swing on Broadway, you must drop your resume off at stage doors. I did this every month for over a year.

I remember being frustrated that I had not heard from anyone. I remember questioning myself, my abilities, and really being negative. Sometime in March, I started to change my thinking and my perspective on things. I believe in God and started to focus my energy on positive things and being thankful for everything that happens, good and bad. I started to believe that when the time is right I will get what I want and need. I was contacted by the Makeup Supervisor at the beginning of August.

Halloween Party backstage with Alex and Christina. They made me feel right at home!

I finished my first week at The Lion King at the end of October and I was totally prepared! I was able to do the job...and do it well. It was very intense and I knew how to handle working under pressure and do a good job. I took instruction well and was able to learn and enhance my own technique from this experience. I remember hearing the sweet music from the show while running to my quick makeup change and feeling, "THIS is what I had been waiting for and it could not have happened any sooner!"

Hear an impromptu talk about my 1st experience briefly on the Beauty Talk Radio Show with Celebrity Artist Denise & Janice Tunnell. Its around the 31:00 minute mark.

I remember sitting in a Master Class with Sam Fine back in 2008 and he said, "Are you ready for the type of jobs that you want?" I was ready, but I had to be patient. I was so focused on my goal, I forgot to enjoy the time I was getting the experience and building my confidence, skills, and my resume. It is perfectly alright to have goals and dreams, but be sure you are putting in the work and gaining the proper experience so when it is YOUR TURN, you are READY when the clock strikes!

I am still learning, still growing, and getting ready for the next opportunity. I am excited that I have learned the value and reward of patience. I hope this helps any artist or anyone that is waiting for something to happen. Stay encouraged and enjoy the journey it takes to be prepared and ready!
