#flashbackfriday with one of my faves! ——————————————————————————— Artists: How many times a month do you schedule practice sessions? • I’ve had a few artists reach out and ask for advice regarding how to set up practice sessions, scout muses without feeling like a pimp (😂), create moodboards, etc. so I thought I’d share my thoughts! Personally, I believe practice sessions are VITAL to your growth as an artist! In this session last year, I discovered that matte lipsticks and lip pencils are the best eyeshadow bases and it blessed my shadow game tremendously, okay?! 🔥 ——————————————————————————— Personally if i’m not working, somebody’s getting PAINTED!

This aids in your muse knowing what to expect and what to offer in her experience with you! ————— 3. Stick to 1-2 techniques at a time! It’s so easy to overcrowd yourself with new techniques and tricks to
I received my very first PR package in the mail yesterday. It was from a friend who appreciates my current skill level. Never once did she ask for anything in return; not a review or a shout out.
