I have always loved make-up! But somewhere in my younger days I became a little embarrassed that I loved makeup and dolling up as much as I did. I guess I thought people would think I was less intelligent. Like no make-up/natural beauty means you're smart? I know, I know! Don't we think some crazy stuff when we are young? But as I entered my fabulous 40's, I became much more confident and comfortable about who I am, and what I enjoy doing at this stage of life. Also around the time I entered the fabulous 40's, my two daughters became interested in make-up and my passion for learning the art of painting a face was born.

Finally, research shows that as little as 30 to 45 minutes of art activity a day can help reduce stress. I believe that! I also believe applying make-up and "painting the face" is art! It's my creative outlet and stress reducer!
