5 Years.. really?

Today marks 5 years for my little blog, I can't believe how fast time has flown. When I started this thing I was just about the enter cosmetology school and I had barely scratched the surface of my makeup talents. Now I'm licensed in Hair and Makeup, have done some free lance for a handful of weddings, just finished up at QC Makeup Academy about to get my certificate and now I am a beauty advisor at Kohl's.. the next adventure will be enrolling into a Special FX course with QC! I just want to learn as much as I can and have always wanted to do Special FX makeup and very excited!

I thought about what I was going to do for my look today and I was looking back at my first real tutorial for Carrie Underwood's music video for "Just a Dream" and then I thought how fun would it be to recreate the look. I have to say I wasn't as skilled as I am now and I kinda cringe when I look at the old posts haha!

Here's The Look:
