Beauty and the Beat - Atlanta, Georgia
Many of you know, this past Saturday, I had the honor of attending the Beauty and the Beat Class by Renny Vasquez and Tatiana "BeatFaceHoney" Ward. The class was held on last Saturday, August 17, 2013 in Atlanta, GA. I truly was blown away with the enormous amounts of information and "jewels" we were given in reference to the Art of Makeup. For those of you who don't know, Renny Vasquez is a well known Makeup Artist (MUA) with over 11 years of experience. He has had (and continues to have) the privilege of applying makeup for several celebrities including: Gabrielle Union, BET's CEO Debra Lee, R&B singer, K. Michelle, Renny has also done various photoshoots for Essence Magazine. Tatiana "BeatFaceHoney" Ward is most known for her YouTube videos and "BeatFaceBrigade" which landed her a gig as MUA for Brandy and Nikki Minaj. Both of these MUA were very informative, inspiring, and fun! Their personalities were everything I hoped for.
But what did you learn?
I know this is the Steak and Potatoes of what you want to know. The class was a demonstration only class. Both MUA provided full face makeup tutorials on a model. We were able to ask questions during the demonstration and we were provided with information such as: technique, etiquette, social networking tips, products/product reviews, and the over all "Do's and Don'ts" in the MUA industry. Some of the topics that were covered included: highlighting/contouring, application of false lashes, shade matching, mistake-proof smokey eye, and using concealer as an eraser.
Unfortunately, I was unable to capture any footage of the seminar at the request of the hosts. However, we were able to take as many pictures as we wanted.
Beauty and the Beat will continue their classes throughout the country. The next stop will be in Houston, Texas. As announced in this video: CLICK HERE TO WATCH. Were you able to spot me in that video? *giggles*
