This week was my very first week at the prestigious, amazing and gorgeously decorated ( i love love bricks) John Casablancas Institute. Today was my second day and so far so good, we get our kits tomorrow and you can for surely expect pictures. TONS of pictures in fact, for the next ten months. My teacher is soft and pretty and laughs alot, + she knows her shit as she has been in the business for 20 years. My class mates are all nice so far and easy to talk to which is a huge plus for me because when I first meet people I might as well be a mime. I may seem well spoken on here but I stutter, gesture wordlessly and slink as far away from the action as possible for the first little while.
We start actual makeup application on tuesday. Tomorrow we are doing skin analysis, facials, tones , face shapes and discussing highlighting and brush care some more. Learning the industry standard way to set up your kit etc.
On another note, I got my eyes lips face products in the mail today FINALLY! I havent had time to try them all yet, but I have washed the brushes and checked them out. To be honest the brush quality isnt great, there are a few brushes I am excited to try, specifically the eyeshadow brush because it comes highly reccomended from liz yu. There are two brushes that I will probably never use, the large powder brush and the blush brush are made from the same bristles, they have a funny red dye which bled when I washed them, they smell really bad like chemicals, and are rough on my cheeks.
I was actually a little bit mad the shipping took forever, and I didnt get one of the products (the eyelid primer) because it was on backorder.. even though on the site when I ordered it, it really wasnt. They deducted the price from my bill but that was one of the products I was looking for most. Expect pictures and reviews shortly on everything however. Maybe this weekend.
I am quickly running out of places to keep all my makeup, right now I keep most of it in a filing cabinet at my boyfriends house. However I am addicted and can never have enough, If you are interested in a product or brand or anything and want me to write about it let me know chicas
