Learning Makeup

Here’s another blog post from our wonderful student Karen:Makeup ClassLast week we finished our makeup certification with Ms. Nancy Jackson.

Though I love makeup, I don’t think I was that great at makeup application.  I think I need some work.  There were some girls that really had a natural ability to make any girl they worked with look amazing. Luckily, as the picture shows below, I was fortunate to...

Here is another post from our wonderful Esthetics student Karen, who has been quickly progressing in her studies: In Chicago today it was 5 degrees.  Ugh!  It has really been terrible both on driving and the skin!  Along with the temperature drop comes dry, tight skin.  What is going on with our skin?  Is it dry?  Is it dehydrated?  Before starting esthetics school, I thought dry and dehydrated skin were pretty much the same and that if your skin was dehydrated it meant you needed to drink more water.  Wrong. In...

WORKING FROM HOME – THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY.

Our frequent contributor, a wonderful instructor — and a successful business owner — Ms. Kim asks a very powerful question in today’s post:  “Can you run a professional home-based business and still be considered a “nice person”?” One of the very best things about working from home – aside of course from the extra income –  is that I get to make all the decisions.  If I need to take a day off, no one tells me that I can’t – I simply don’t take appointments for that day!  If I need to spend an extra ten or...
