I also had the chance to meet with DorothyInez, a Makeup Artist from the south Sounds who works with Motives by Loren Ridinger. I met up with her before a class she was going to teach because I was going to get one of her train cases. I'm tired of carrying around another bag for my hair things because my train case is a bit too small. besides that, I don't want to pay $200+ for a case which is just a bit bigger than mine, that's just crazy!
Anyways, back to my story. Since they were still setting up for the class, she introduced me to one of the Motives mentors from Miami and they showed me some of the products they have. There was this cake tier looking thing with different correctors and colors: they custom blend your foundation! How cool is that?! Plus, they are very affordable cosmetics! My favorite was definitely the Motives for La La line which just launched. You know former MTV VJ La La Anthony: married to the oh-so-cute Carmelo Anthony.
The pigmentation was great and there was a coral lip gloss which I HAVE to get my hands on. Oh yes, I will placing an order soon! You can check out DorothyInez's site for more info in her and her work, you can even look at the Motives line. Oh, and any future brides in the south Sound (Seattle on down), hit her up, she's very sweet! Her site is www.dorothyinez.com
Later, I had the chance to work with probably the nicest photographer I've ever met for some Senior portraits: Vaughn Tanner. His work is really nice and he is great. It was definitely one of the best photo shoots I've been a part of. Of course, the girl he was shooting was very cooperative while I was doing her hair and makeup and her mom was very sweet too. Hopefully I can show you guys a photo from the shoot, Vaughn did an amazing job!
Once again, anyone in the south Sound, hit him up for photos! His site is www.throughalens.net
