Aside from being a professional makeup artist, I am also a certified makeup junkie! That’s why I decided to be on a makeup-purchase fasting for January 2013. I absolutely did not buy any makeup products whether it was for personal or professional use. It was a challenge but I had to be practical, since I spent a lot last Holiday season for gifts and personal nonsense. I had to cut back on something. Plus it was a good practice to eradicate my compulsive shopping trait.
I always browse fashion magazines and blogs to seek fresh ideas. I like to check out latest trends not only in makeup but also in fashion. But at times, I go back to what I call my classics. These are the books I read when I just want to be refreshed and when I want to remind myself of the theories I learned and lessons that I may have forgotten.
When I was studying to be a makeup artist, aside from the handouts and lessons, I also refer to other makeup books. These are Making Faces by Kevyn Aucoin, Makeup Manual by Bobbi Brown and The Complete Guide to Makeup by Suzanne Le Quesne.
