My name is Bre Garcia. I am a makeup junkie. For as long as I can remember I have collected (more like hoarded) makeup. i love being able to transform me and my friends with a few simple but effective placed swatches of color. I love love LOVE it…I’ve been a Drugstore DIVA and I’ve climbed to the top of Mount SEPHORA and I will soar past the counters of M*A*C with ease…lol
so, towards my goal of becoming a professional make up artist (or MUA), I have enrolled in Regency Beauty Institute.
“But, doesn’t cosmetology school equal doing hair?” – this is what you may ask me – and my reply will be :
YEAH! but that’s ok because it also focuses on aesthetics (skin care) and nails, and of course – MAKE UP!! granted, cosmetology schools MOSTLY hair, and yeah, it does worry me a bit because, after all, I can’t even french braid my own hair, much less do finger waves – BUT I am a fast learner and a dedicated student, so i’m pretty sure that i can figure it out. Besides, as a photographer, I’ve learned that a good frame (your hair) can beautifully accentuate a wonderful work of art (your makeup) – so i’m pretty sure its a good thing.
this will be the blog that follows my road from beginning to end – the entire 14 months – (i’m going part-time in the evening since i work full time, have a family, and a photography business) until i graduate.
I can’t guarantee that there will be a post every day – but i can guarantee i will write as much as i can – and add photos of my progress – so that you can get a real glimpse inside of this program.
And on the days that i’m NOT posting blogs, there are a number of ways to keep up with me – just follow the links on the right side to my Twitter, Facebook, or Flickr pages to see what i’m up to…OR even better – check out more info on the school or my favorite makeup sites for tips and tricks of the trade!
