Live Well. Laugh Often. Love Much.

Challenge of the X

For every makeup class that I conduct, I always have a goal that I die die want to achieve at the end of it. And the goal is to make sure every student leaves my house looking better than before. And the reason why she looks better is certainly not because of what I do on her face BUT because of what she does on her face using her hands plus her newly acquired/improved makeup skills. This is the reason why I make my makeup classes as hands on as I possibly can. “Happy? Okay remove your makeup now and redo!” I would go all the time before leaving the student on her own for a few minutes. And the same look on everyone’s faces? The big eyes and mouth wide open kind. Classic right? Hehehe.

But look. Ultimately, she has to do her own makeup every day, without any help from others. She has to rely on the makeup skills that she has. She has to trust her own hands. So my hands on her face OR her hands on her face?

Therefore it gives me great satisfaction each time I browse through their Twitpics or FB photos and see how awesome they look now, and how much their makeup skills have improved. And it’s not thanks to me. I do not want to take the credit. It’s all thanks to their determination and constant practice. So well done girls, if I have not already said so earlier.

Which brings me to this entry…
