oh no she didn't

Oh No She Didn’t! Oh Yes I Did….

Wow. It has come to my attention that it has now been well over a month since my last blog post. WHAT?! If we were to measure time in Glossyboxes, I have now missed two full reviews! Oh no she didn’t! Oh yes I did 🙁

This is ridiculous of course. I don’t know what happened. Time just seems to fly when you are busy and for the first time in a while now, I have been. Extremely busy! Not something to complain about I guess :).

So what have I been up to you may ask? Or maybe you don’t care but I am going to tell you anyway! First off, Steve and I headed to a wedding up the country so I lost about half a week of time without even noticing. I managed to get my hair done in that week though but as the results are wearing off at this stage I figured it best not to show you until it’s looking a bit better than it is at the moment.

The most important thing that has happened in the past month though, is that I have gone back to college. I can’t remember the last time I was in college exactly but this time I decided to do a course that was actually relevant and that I might get something out of! So with out further ado, I can tell you now that I am studying to become a Make Up Artist. YAY!!!!

Every last penny we had has been spent on this course and I am already finding it harder than I expected. I didn’t really think it through as it was a last minute decision to go so I am trying to adjust. I just thought, I love makeup, I love to apply it to myself, how hard can it be to do someone else’s?! Pretty HARD actually.

Some of the girls seem to look at the models face and see it as a blank canvas and focus on what they are going to create. My issue seems to be that I look at the model and see the model. I see them staring at me and it makes me nervous that I will ruin their lovely face. That I am going to gouge out their eyes if I dare to try and apply eyeliner or mascara. I seem to forget even the most basic steps of makeup application when I am confronted by this persons face. IS THIS NORMAL????

I have never really had the chance to practice and have not done makeup for other people many times before so I thought it would be a lot easier than it is. Have any makeup artists out there had this issue? Did you get over the fear of messing up and just go for it?

I hope so. If my hands could stop shaking it would make the whole thing so much easier!

So that is where I have been. Busy everyday in college, busy every night working on face charts and sleeping because I am exhausted from all this running around. I don’t know how people do it!

Something had to give which means you have gone neglected for awhile, but I won’t let that happen any longer! I missed this too much. So I will have more reviews and rambles incoming!! Cork Fashion Week is about to kick off and hope to make time for at least one of the events. If I manage to make it there, I will be sure to do a blog post about it, including pics of course!

If not, don’t worry. I have other posts in the pipeline and I promise not be gone for so long again.

Until next time! xxxx

    Huge congrats on your college course! And I’d totally be the same as you, worrying I’d ruin the model or she’s hate it or I’d hurt her… I’m sure it’ll just take a bit of time for you to get used to it and find your groove. Can’t wait to see the looks you come up with!

      Aw thanks Kat :). Glad to know I’m not the only one who would feel that way! Hopefully I will get the hang of it if I can just keep myself calm!

      Thanks so much for your comment 😀 xxx
