New life, new passions, same Amy

Let me start out by saying, makeup school was amazing!

I was totally nervous before I started school. I wasn't sure how many people would be in my class, if I would be any good at it, if everyone was gonna kick my ass at doing makeup. But NONE of those things happened. First I met all the girls before class started.

Jeannie: totally outgoing and vivacious LA girl. This girl has had SO many outlandish adventures in her life already, and she is only 21. She is sweet and cute as a button and I look forward to possibly hanging and working with her more once I get down to LA permanently.

This is Sydney. Shy, quiet, gorgeous. She was so mature, I naturally assumed she was at least 22 or 23. She was just a BABY though. Sydney is 18 and from Florida and is a GENUIS at applying eye makeup. Honestly, I could really learn a lot from her. It was fun to see her go from shy and quiet to more outgoing as the week wore on.

Last but certainly not least, my home girl Meaghan from Boston: This girl was like my soul mate makeup sister. I knew the minute we started talking that I was gonna like her. She had rad black hair with these awesome purple streaks in it. It was the first time that I have ever wanted to get crazy streaks like that in my hair. She was funny and sarcastic. We spent a lot of time together over the last 7 days and it really made me sad on Sunday when we realized that we had to go our seperate ways. But we already have plans for me to go to Boston to see her and for her to come here in LA in December. YAY!

Us with our brilliant teacher Amy Ward outside shooting models on location

Our teacher, Amy Ward, was amazing and I know that I learned so much from her. She even offered me a part time job once I get down there to help her with assistant work, especially with computers because she needs help there! And I am hoping to glean more knowledge about makeup and the industry from her. But I won't be stopping there, I plan on hustling out there. I've never been a hustler, but you can guarantee that with my upbeat attitude and friendly demeanor, I WILL make it. It will be a rough road, but a road that needs to be travelled.

Many of you know, I struggled losing 10 lbs recently. But just so you all know, due to the presence of places like Yummy Cupcakes, I found them all. Joy. But with all the stress of moving, the loading and unloading boxes, and by running again, I know they will come off. DAMN YOU YUMMY CUPCAKES!!!!!!
Us girls with our models Ruben and Sara on our last day of class. I would be punished if I did not tell you all that the curly haired girl Jeannie, that is NOT her real hair. But it looks damn good on her!
Here we all are, trying to squeeze in as many photos as we can before we all go our seperate ways :(

This was during out Special Effects class. I had a nice black eye, busted lip and bloody scratches. It was AWESOME! I loved this part of class. So anyone out there wanting some cool costume this year for Halloween, holler at me for your makeup (That goes for anyone who wants to be pretty/slutty/drag queen/ etc)

Here we all are, posing as dead. Check out our expressions. Some days, I literally felt this way. But then again, there are some days where we all feel a little like this right?

So there you all have it, my very first blog post. It was rough, but they will get better. And trust me, my life is sometimes a comedy, sometimes a tragedy, but it's my life and I wouldn't have it any other way!
