Hi Dolls, and we can not forget about the Gents! Welcome to EYE-LOVE Cosmetics. It is a blog about, you guessed it, Make-Up. More importantly it is about my journey as a Full-Time Accountant/Part-Time Professional Free-Lance Make-Up Artist, and the hardships I encounter to make it as a Full-Time Professional Free-Lance Artist. So sit back and enjoy the ride, I am sure it will be bumpy.

Snowed In

Thank God for the snowstorm because I can finally catch up on my writing - an added Christmas gift.

I had a lovely Christmas - getting some much needed R&R after quite a hectic week.  It was amazing to spend time with my family and the people who matter the most in my life.  It is so easy to get caught up in life to forget what matters most.

Life is too short to be miserable and unhappy.  My goal for 2011 is about prioritizing!

I apologize for the lack of posts, I have been in this whirlwind of opportunities...writing for Beautystat.com , freelancing for Laura Mercier on Saturdays and trying to post blogs - all while maintaining a full-time accounting position.  I am far from complaining, I love being busy and I am happily bobbing along in the current of life.

I do have some exciting stuff to share - two things to be exact.  Wednesday I attended the Dior/Lucky luncheon through Beautystat.  I have never attended a luncheon and I was quite excited.  Upon entering Conde Nast I felt like I was in my own version of "The Devil Wears Prada," the women were dressed to the nines but that is where the similarities ended.  The woman I met were all amazing and extremely sweet. 

I sat and chatted with Stephanie, owner of Stiletto Jungle, and then all of us girls were escorted into a room where the presentation was being held.  Over lunch the women from Dior passionately spoke about the products and we received knowledge of new products that are to come in the following months.  The most exciting news was that Natalie Portman will be the new face of Miss Dior Cherie, giving a more sensual and sexy feel.  After the presentation we were whisked away by Dior make-up artists for a make-up consultation.  How I love to play with make-up!!  It was a wonderful day.

My other exciting news is some of the Jersey Shore Season Three promo pictures were released.  Why am I excited?? Because I helped assist do the make-up on the shoot.  (Make-up artist: Raychel Wade and Bridget Lembo) We did the make-up back in September; the new season of Jersey Shore is set to premiere January 6th.

Stepping Stones

From a young age I always wanted to be a make-up artist, I even listed it in my eighth grade yearbook as the occupation that I wanted to pursue.  Make-up artistry it not just something I do, it is a part of me.  I am no where near where I want to be but each day I get one step closer.

I am sharing this with you because I think that it is important to pursue our life long dreams and so often we get caught up in what others want us to do or what is "the right thing."  I have been struggling with this for the past few years but recently opportunities are arising.  I believe that opportunities arise when we are ready to accept them.  Recently I started writing for Beautystat.com, a stepping stone to where I want to finally wind up.  It is a great website that gives tips and tricks on beauty, style and fashion.  It is a blessing in disguise because I get to talk about what I love. 

So don't focus on your final goal, really relish the stepping stones that get you to your final destination.  It will really make appreciate your hard work when you get there.
