Get Your Supplies Ready

     Who's ready for some How-To Videos? I am, I am...well almost. Early next week we will finally be moving into our permanent home. We have been staying at a temporary place while they finish getting ours ready. Once we are there and unpacked I plan on starting the videos.
     I will be focusing on beauty. There are a lot of MUAs who do great costume make-up, and I really respect their talent. But I have never lived, and never plan to live in NYC or L.A. I do mostly weddings and sweet 16's and such. Where people are wanting to look like the best version of themselves, not like a completely different person. Also I want to do tutorials that anyone can do. Any one from people who already know how to do their makeup and just want to learn some new moves to people who have no clue about what they are doing. Of course, I will be sharing all of my tips on hairstyling too, and the same idea applies. I want to help everyone, from other professionals to people who are clueless.
     I don't really know, yet, where I am going to start. If you have any suggestions or specific things you want to see or know, let me know.
     I figured, that today, I would show everyone the tools that I use. Maybe it can help you to see what you are missing out of your own tool box, or give you an idea of where to start.
