Beauty Basics on a Budget Seminar

Posted by Brandalyn

The 1st ever Beauty Basics on a Budget was held this past fall in Detroit, Michigan. It was a huge success! Please check back as I will be hosting more Beauty Basis on a Budget seminars in New York, Detroit, and Chicago for 2012! 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!

I am so blessed and thankful to see another year! I spent New Years Eve in church! I could not have been in a better place! I am so thankful for 2011! It was a year of transformation. I am in awe with how I am growing personally and professionally. I can see, feel, and LOVE getting older, wiser, and becoming more Brandalyn :-)

With this post, I wanted to take a few moments to reflect on 2011. I have been doing this all week while creating a vision statement and vision board. I am a firm believer that sometimes you need to toot your own horn! It is so easy to say what you haven't done or what you didn't do. I am humble and also believe in just doing the work, but how can one move forward if you don't sit back and recognize what you have accomplished.

  1. I completed a full season as Wig & Makeup Supervisor at the John Engeman Theater.
  2. I taught Runway Makeup to LA makeup artists at the LA Makeup Show.
  3. I became a member of a wonderful church in Harlem, First Corinthian Baptist Church.
  4. I held my first seminar of Beauty Basics on a Budget in Detroit, Michigan.
  5. I was featured on several websites including and
  6. I became a Makeup Swing on Broadway and learned makeup tracks at The Lion King and Mary Poppins.
  7. I left my steady paying job to become a freelancer and didn't "really" know what was in store for me.
  8. I worked at NYU as an Assistant Wig Designer and taught Makeup to Opera and Musical Theater students.
  9. I served as the Makeup Consultant for the Broadway show, Lysistrata Jones and saw the show come together and provided makeup for Broadway Star, Patti Murin.
  10. I assisted Broadway Wig Designer, Mark Adam Rampmeyer at the prestigious Papermill Playhouse and was Associate Wig Designer for White Christmas!
  11. I am now on an assistants' list for a fabulous Makeup Agency in NYC.
  12. I have dedicated more time to my blog,, and YOU my readers.

I am probably leaving somethings out and I am typing pretty fast, but I have tears in my eyes because 2011 was a GREAT year and I am extremely thankful. My peers and colleagues are amazing. I get messages in my inbox ALL the time and constantly have people embracing me with genuine love and support! Lord knows I need it!

This year is going to be nothing less. I am turning it up a few notches and taking it to the next level. I have discovered a great deal about myself and where I would like to take my career. If you stick with me...YOU WILL SEE! There are a few goals I had in 2011 that I didn't get to, but life is not always about accomplishing goals. I have learned that it is about enjoying the journey and the process of growing. I encourage you to never lose sight of your goals but to also enjoy the moments that it takes to reach those goals. There are so many lessons to learn and experiences to truly treasure. I haven't lost sight of the goals I didn't get to achieve in 2o11 because I will keep at them in 2012!

My advice to anyone in Makeup Artistry or anyone striving to get to the next level:
  1. Take care of yourself mentally! Feed your brain and soul with positive and prosperous thinking.
  2. Its all about the follow up. Stay persistent and be strategic with your words and actions.
  3. Be genuine. Do not set your goals based on someone else's success. Determine your own success.
  4. It is a cliche, but it holds much truth..."THINGS TAKE TIME"
  5. Do not be afraid to achieve your goals. Tackle your fears and move them out the way
I have so much to look forward to in 2012. I look forward to sharing with you! Happy New Year!
