Here are a couple pics of me attempting my hair and makeup

So I tried on my red lipstick the other night and I think it is a little too orangy but in this pic it doesn't look to bad. Jamez said it look sexy so that's a plus. I also did my hair in a side braid with a bump in the front...I have always had the hardest time getting the bump just right but this time I got it. I am so proud of myself.

Hi so first off I want to give a special thank you to my fiance Jamez for reminding me that I'm a beautiful girl and that I should show it off. I love you babe...so last night I tried to do my own eyebrows after watching Kandee Johnson's tutorial on the subject. But before I could get to far into ruining my eyebrows I found that it was not as easy as she made it seem...so I am just going to let the professionals mess with my eyebrows. I also tried on my new red lipstick and found that it doesn't look to bad but it is a little orangy for my face...but I"ll keep practicing. I hope someone decides to read my blog soon...I have no followers. Please follow me

Hi Everyone

Hello to my future readers...so it's been a couple days and I've been practicing my makeup and watching tutorials through youtube and stuff trying out new things and it's been going pretty good. My makeup skills aren't as bad as I thought they were but I'm still struggling. I found this great blog and tutoriallist on youtube. Her name is Kandee Johnson and she is absolutely amazing. She is really talented and her tutorials are so much fun to watch. Today I was thinking of trying to do my own eyebrows using the tips she gave in her eyebrow tutorial. Oh and I'm going to be bold and try on some red lipstick...it's called Cherry Red...I'm a little scared but I think it will be ok. Oh and I'm so sad because my digital camera broke this week...it just stopped working and I've had it for a couple years now and so it's not covered under the warranty...I'll have to take it to get looked at...by the way gotta say a special thank you to my friend for getting the camera a couple christmases ago...so that's the 411 on my makeup adventure...I'll try to post some pics of what I've done soo... so you can see how I'm coming along. Thanks for the support..

Love Candyce

Let me Introduce myself

Hello everyone!! My name is Candyce. So let me begin by saying I am not the most talented girl when it comes to hair and makeup...but I think its time I learn. I am 23 going on 24 and the most skill I have is putting on mascara. My fiance, Jamez, has requested that I wear more makeup than I do because he wants to show off all my beauty. When I heard this I sat back and thought...he's right...where has my girliness gone...I have lost it. I live in Southern California and its been so hot this summer that putting makeup on just doesn't sound fun. Plus I have stuck at home with an injury that makes it hard for me to go anywhere. But I want to learn how to improve my skills on makeup and my hair. I am open for any suggestions people have for me or if anyone knows of classes I could go to that aren't overly expensive....we are in a recession here. I am getting addicted to makeup just in the past couple days watching tutorials online. I love Makeupgeek.com, Marlena is an amazing teacher....well I hope you enjoyed my intro...feel free to comment and help.
