Well, I said I was going to try and update this every day, or at least when i upload things to my deviantart.

But since it's summer and my mom just bought a pool, I havent work any makeup in the last 3 days!!!

I think its a personal record for me actually


But as soon as I get some new pictures or I find out some good makeup news/products, I'll post them

Well hello

This is Ashley, obviously, and this is my first post here! woohoo!

So I figured, I want to become more known online for my makeup besides deviantart and vampirefreaks. So I figured I'd do what every other struggling makeup artist does, MAKE A BLOG!


For those who don't know me. I'm 18 years old and I am a makeup artist from Ontario Canada. I haven't had any professional schooling for it yet. (I am taking Cosmetics techniques and management at Seneca in the fall though.) I am 100% self taught. I've done makeup for proms, fashion shows, photoshoots and theatrical preformances.

My favorite brands are: Micabella, MAC, Urban Decay, Annabelle and Makeup Forever. I use bascially anything I can get my hands on, From dollar store glitter to Bobbi Brown palettes.

I perfer bright eccentric makeup to subtle looks. I love doing character themes too. The more over the top, the better.

So, my first entry is this:
