how I got started..kinda


I watched this show and didn't even know that Myke was going to be on it...and I had just talked to him a few days before it's premiere...

so this is the fast story...

I was almost done with beauty school (didn't like doing hair..but I'd have tons of make-up applications on my completion lists for each week in beauty school...) and by the way Bonnie is amazing because she let me go to beauty school for free at her school International Academy of Style.......

I go to a hair show in LA....I start talking to Myke Michaels (who has won Emmy's for make-up, has done everyone from Janet Jackson to Demi Moore to everyone......) he asks of I want to work on a movie....and within a month I'm on set, in a make-up trailer, on location in the desert...

I also got offered a job that day, by Laurent D, owner of Prive salons and products in Hollywood....

I was so excited leaving that hairshow......and then I got rear-ended on the 101 freeway going home in my mom's new Lexus that was just a few weeks old!!!! Ahhhh, what's a little airbag smoke, compared to what I had just been offered! ha ha ha

so anyways....I like this show....because it makes me think of what I would've done for the assignments they are given....my friend had told me about the show looking for make-up artists...and I didn't really think too much about it...I had other things cookin' in my life...

Myke is a really great guy....no matter how the show tries to make him look....he's the nicest 7 foot tall man...he's not that tall, but this biggest make-up artist I've ever seen....

Lol at "7 foot tall" because I'm 6'2" and I really hope to meet you one day. I can't wait to be working full time as an MUA and almost anything MUA or make up related excites me so when I came upon your blog... I had to check it out!! You seem quite nice though and, again, I hope to one day meet you and draw from your experience.
