Hi! My name is Drini and I am a professional freelance makeup artist and licensed esthetician based in Inglewood. I have been practicing makeup for 10 years and long before I became an esthetician I would always say that great makeup first starts with great skin. Imperfections can easily be concealed with the right product and a flick of the wrist, but what happens when the makeup comes off?

As a teenager, before I knew the effect a great skin care regimen would have on my skin, I would beg my mom to buy me the newest drugstore skin- care products. I thought the commercials looked so cool with girls lathering cleanser and splashing water over their faces to remove their makeup. Even though I wasn’t wearing a lot of makeup at that age, I wanted to mimic the “experience” I saw on TV.

As a personal trainer/nutritional consultant I find my job can be more than just helping my clients get into shape.  Changing their mind-set and building their self esteem is just as important.  Here are some keys to help your feel as good at you look.

Be confidence. Feeling pretty has more to do with how you present yourself and less to do with what you look like. Feeling pretty is about confidence, the confidence that exudes from the inside out.  Of course liking what you look like in the mirror can help feel pretty, but above all having confidence in who you are, what you have achieved, whether good or bad can help you feel pretty even on a bad hair day. Pretty starts with looking on the inside.

Make­up­ enhances

When applied correctly, makeup enhances your natural beauty, calling attention to your best features and concealing flaws. Make up can also help you to project your own sense of yourself.

The natural hair movement is here, either you get on board or your hair might fall out! Doctors and hair stylists have been warning sistas for years about the devastating effects relaxers and weaves have on our hair and scalps.
