What I’ve Been Up To Recently…

Hi beauties! You may have noticed that it’s a little bit quiet here on the blog lately. I have exciting news: I’m very busy taking an introductory makeup course in the evenings. I only have two more weeks to go, but I wanted to share some photos for you curious ones out there. πŸ™‚

The course itself is very basic, and it doesn’t get any more elementary than colour theory. In the photo was my first horrible attempt at a colour wheel. Trust me, the one I handed in was better than that. πŸ˜‰

We also learn how to identify face shapes, and unless you have the amazing bone structure of Liu Wen’s, it’s actually not that easy to determine. Most people’s faces are composed of two different shapes. I’m a square. This isn’t new to me. It’s kinda obvi.

I’m picking up a lot of tips and tricks to share with you guys, and once the course is finished, expect a lengthy tips and tricks post from me.

Oh, and not really related to school, but I wanted to share it anyway. I got my hair and makeup done this weekend for the boyfriend’s sister’s wedding, and if I may say so myself, I look pretty damn good. Okay, that’s it. Hair is by Blo Blow Dry Bar, and makeup is by the super talented Rhia of Artistrhi. Thanks for making me look hot.


As pointed out by Macnunu, it’s been a while since my pretty cat-daughter has made an appearance here.

She got it from her momma.

LOL! Alright, that’s enough. Hope you guys have a quick and painless work/school week ahead. πŸ˜€

    • Thanks girl! It is very exciting. πŸ™‚

  • Ooh! I’ve always wanted to take some type of make-up class! I watch a lot of beauty vids and read a lot of beauty blogs…but I feel like a class on basic make-up would be really useful!

    • That’s how I feel too, Tiffany. I’m going to take the next in the course series though — SFX for Film and TV, then Theatre. It should be fun.

  • Cindy

    I’ve always wanted to go to beauty school! Where are you taking your introductory makeup course?

    • Hi Cindy, I’m going to Chang School at Ryerson University. It’s cheaper than the private makeup schools.

  • How exciting for you! I can’t wait to hear all about it in detail.

    Ahh Sherbie you adorable cat baby πŸ™‚

    • LOL thanks Jen! You should’ve seen her this morning at breakfast. She was hanging out right beside us while we eat, PURRING up a storm. So cute!

  • oh the makeup class sounds so interesting!!! hopefully one day i can get around to taking some classes. i’m sure i would screw up the color wheel must worst than you lol!

    and you look lovely!!! makeup & hair, everything is just so pretty πŸ˜€

  • I love that you are taking classes to continue with your craft and knowledge of makeup!! I am taking a MAC Pro Masterclass in November and cannot wait to learn from some of the best artists!! I think it shows your true passion about something if you keep putting time and effort into learning more and more about something and never being satisfied with the status quo.

    • Thank you JennySue! I have always wanted to take courses, and decided that it’s really now or never for me. Glad I took the plunge. It’s so exciting to be learning makeup, even though it’s not a private makeup school. I still have to practice a lot on my own, but at least I’ll have the theory to back it up, you know?

      Ohhh master classes are amazing! Michelle and I were invited to a sneak peek of a master class here in Toronto last Fall and it was so much fun! I’m looking forward to what you think after the class. πŸ™‚
