How's everyone's course going??

Unread postby KirstyJayne » June 26th, 2012, 5:46 am

Hi everyone! Just wondering how your all doing? My names Kirsty I'm 22 from Lincolnshire, England. I've been doing the course since last year but only on unit B. I lost my job in a hair salon at the beginning of the year, I'd been there for six years very gutted but the salon had to close due to the recession. I've lost a lot of time on my course as I started up my own business as a mobile hairdresser and not really had a lot of time to do much of it but I have my motivation back now and will be cracking on. Would be great to hear from you all.

:) Hi! Just heard from my course counselor and I got an "A!" on Unit "A". I was a little confused about some of the questions but I did very well! I am so happy! Have been practicing and shopping on Ebay, got lots of good stuff, primers and foundations, etc. Bought Mac brushes and twofaced eye primer, Benefit Lemon-Aide, Urban Decay Eye Primer. I like both primers, but twofaced seems to hold on to the true color. Urban Decay, is smoother and is also good. I've used my daughter as a model for my makeup and my God mother. I wanted to use an older woman to see what type of skin I can work on. Older women have softer skin and there's not much elasticity, but with a little gentle nudging, you can bring it back to life. (Check out my photos). Well, looking forward to the next class! Hasta la pasta, babeeeeeeee!

:D G'morning all! Hot as all get-out here in NYC. Read all your responses and hope all goes well for everybody. Its funny how when you mention you're becoming a makeup artist how people ask you why don't you do hair also so that you can do their hair. Really? Am I here at your disposal and to accommodate you're every whim? I laugh on the inside because my passion is MAKEUP! Hello! Lol. What I love about makeup is that you can be a chameleon. You can change you're looks with the stroke of a brush. You can high-light, shadow, reshape and mold you're face to make it look the way you want it. Not physically, of course, but for a photo shoot? With a little latex, skin-colored foundation and makeup? Viola! Who the heck r u? Lol In reality though, makeup does help to enhance your best features. nothing like it. Ok then, have a splendid day!

Im just as excited w/ every one and kinda find myself asking, well, how is it that I cant understand what Im being asked to complete on the stocking your kit assignment?
Im laughing cuz, it should be so simple yet, I always tend to over analyze and then second guess.
I have my Chef papers and Im educated in another field, not such a far stretch from this one, just different mediums.
I posted a question, if someone could oblidge me w/ and answer, I'd be so grateful.
Thanks.

Hi,
I am new and just enrolled Sept. 28th, so I am still waiting for my course materials to arrive (tracking info. says it will arrive 10/4, my b-day, what an awesome present!) however I have completed the A1 assignment and saved it to my flash drive. When my materials arrive, I can begin on A2. I am very excited. As I am browsing through the info. that I do have and the posts here on the forum, I can say so far so good, I guess LOL! :D

Congrats Kristy!!! That is awesome! I am hoping to do as well here as I am in my undergrad Criminal Justice/Human Service courses :lol: Thanks for the early B-day wishes. Although my B-day falls on a Thurs. and I have to work, I guess I will wait and find something to do on the weekend.

Kristy, are you a PBA member? If not, were you interested in becoming a member? If we can register in a group of 5 or more, we can register for only $45.

:D Got my Unit A materials about 2 hours ago, checked everything and all is there. One of my eyeshadows were crushed up and the case (not the product) is cracked up on one side :x ...otherwise everything else was ok. I guess I will start on A2 and get that done today!! :D Wish me luck!
