Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of attending a seminar where I got to listen to the incredible Nikoletta Skarlatos talk about being a Makeup Artist is the motion picture industry.  Nikoletta has an impressive resume that include The Pirates of the Caribbean, The Amazing Spider-man, Thor, Angels & Demons and the hugely successful Hunger Games.  She is currently filming Mockingjay here in Atlanta which is the third film in the Hunger Games Series.

As a professional in the makeup industry, if I want to go to trade shows such as the IMATS or The Makeup Show, I usually have to travel to Los Angeles or Orlando to see them.  These shows are in a few other cities in the country but nowhere near Atlanta.  Well, to all my artists out there, the wait is over!  Atlanta is getting their very own trade show!  What news could make this better?  It's within a minute of my apartment!  Tickets are on sale now so make sure to check it out!

Wedding Day Glow...Yes or No?

tanning-beds

A common practice for the soon to be Bride (and some grooms) is getting that healthy wedding day glow.  Everyone looks better with a little extra color.  I repeat...a little extra color.  I will give you tips on how to get that beautiful bronze you desire without having the "muddy" or "pumpkin" look.

Do your research before you spray.  The more pale you are, the more likely you are to get that "pumpkin" look.  Not cute.  As I have said before, my favorite system is Versa Spa.  I'm very pale and Versa will always turn me a nice golden color without that pumpkinesque look.  Another great option is to have an actual person spray you.  There are great companies you can hire that will bring a pop up booth to your house or you can go to tanning salons where this service is offered.

Also, make sure you know how the system works before you get in!  You don't want a "Ross" situation.

If you prefer to get your color in a tanning bed, this is an option with little prep time and a good dose of Vitamin D.  Your tan will be more natural and last longer.

But...BEWARE OF:
