before and afters: 15min mini makeovers

i did makeup for "the dental spa" company photoshoot. shot by the amazingly talented justin grant, with melinda johnson on hair.
i focused on each ladies power point and played it up, keeping the makeup natural, light and pretty.
i used christian dior's air flash foundation for my foundation on all the ladies, it is my absolute favorite!! if you haven't tried it i highly recommend you do:) it is waterproof and sweat proof. it's like an airbrush finish in a can.


fox 13 live- beauty on a budget segment, how to: beach waves

last week i focused on three different techniques to do beach waves. Even though my first technique, the curling iron, wasn't even heated up on live tv :( i explained through it and just moved on and it turned out ok:)
You can view that here:

so today i made my first "tutorial tuesday" and posted it on my youtube channel, muchacha mary.
i wanted to show you all how to do beach waves with a flat iron but it's not what you are thinking, i use a different technique and you have to see how:

**also please bear with me, i am just learning how to film and edit on imovie and so apologize for the lengthy tutorial. i promise i will learn how to use the program and edit some fun new videos and post them every tuesday ;) thanks for your patience!!

my happy place

"to me, makeup isn't just about covering up dark circles or hiding behind some cake-y foundation. makeup penetrates deeper than the skin, it gives a certain confidence that radiates inner beauty. being able to apply makeup and help show others how to do it themselves makes me the happiest. i feel like i am helping them find a new confidence, to go out and do big things, to face the world and love themselves and in turn love each other. we all have flaws but our gifts are grater, use your gifts and you will see your flaws diminish." -mary ann horne aka muchacha mary

i was asked to be apart of this amazing breast cancer survivor makeover as the makeup artist. this was one of the most fun and gratifying news segments i have ever been apart of. the three ladies who we had the pleasure of making over are all so incredible and such an example of what real courage and strength is. while i made over each beautiful lady they told me a portion of their battle with breast cancer story and i literally had to hold back the tears all morning long. i was humbled by their stories and their journeys. i am so thankful that they are all around to share their stories with us all and i am so thankful for my gifts, the ability to apply makeup. To me that is a blessing because it is a gift that i can share with them and so many more ladies to help build their own confidence.
thank you, kutv ch.2 for having me be apart of such a beautiful story. and once again thank you to all the sponsors who donated to help fill their gift baskets, so many giving people stepped forward to help in the last minute and i really appreciate you all.
much love:)
